    The Mr. Clean look can make for a pretty intimidating uniformed presence on the right guy. I was scared of myself when I looked in the mirror.

    I missed my hair though, so I let it grow back.

    Wait, wait, wait! Razor to me = electric razor.

    Bic = shaving razor. I specifically say, "Where's my shaving razor," since I use both frequently.

    I use an electric shaver on my head for a high and tight. During the summer, I shave it all off in a recruit haircut. I still have hair. I am not Mr. Clean, nor do I require to buy head wax.

    To clarify, I look alot like Gordon Freeman with hair, and Anthony Michael Hall from mid-season ER without hair.

    If you're overweight they might start calling you "Mr. Clean."

    No, but I come close. Razor it during all but winter. In winter, I put a guard on the razor. Need some hair when its 2 degrees out.

    Same thing when I worked for Department of Corrections. There were several Corrections Officers with medical waivers. As long as they kept them neat and trimmed then the State couldn't tell them anthing.

    Strangely, most companies I worked for (even the warm bodies) would not hire Hemi44. These were, of course, in Florida, where beards are "frowned upon." All of them had, as a pre-employment clause, a statement that:

    Any person who cannot shave for medical reasons shall be deemed medically unfit for this job position.

    Use an electric razor as Mr. Security suggests. Also use a non alcoholic before shave lotion and afterward, a non alcoholic after-shave lotion.
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

    Not that you haven't thought about this idea, but what happens if you used an electric shaver?

    you have to accomodate people who can't shave for medical/religious reasons.
    I, Myself have had trouble and needed to get a medical note stating that I have very sensative skin and could not shave on a daily basis. the third or fourth day i will shave, this way I know that my skin has healed. I would love to wake up and be able to shave everyday.

    Makes it easy for the assailant to grab the goatee so the s/o can't duck and then punch him right in the snout.

    I used to work under a lieutenant at my mall and he had really squared away looking goatee. On the other hand, one of our sergeants who in his officer days had the nastiest goatee this side of the mississippi!
