USA vs Serbia…..price of a haircut

11 Jan


I am getting really insecure about my age! Don’t they call that a midlife crisis?? I am getting little bits of grey hair and like my hair cut once a week. After living in Charleston, IL for a few years …. i was accustomed to $13 haircuts. I usually tipped $5.00 so it cost me about $20 a week. While living in Chicago the price was $25.00 for a cut and $5 for tip so it ran me $30. I know some girls in the USA that spend $50 to $100 or more on their hair.

Here in Zrenjanin, Serbia…. i get my haircut for 180 dinars or $2!!!!!! She cuts it quick and just like I want it!! She may think I am a spy but she does a great job!!! 🙂 The place I go has one lady from 7am-1PM. She is always friendly but speaks ZERO English!! I have never seen one person cut so much hair without a break!! Today…. I sat in there with 6 guys ahead of me…. she cut, cut , cut and had them done in 1 hour!!! No break, no rest!!!! WOW!!! She even gives me a shot of rakija most days!!!

    Thank you a lot for presenting my homeland in such a nice demeanour ! I m also happy you had a nice time in Serbia and in the surrounding of my people! 🙂
    Yeah though we are humans as any other human, and we have our flows and vices, but it really hurts to see and hear people of narrow mind speaking ill of my country and my people!

    And I especially thought that Jolie´s werent narrow minded! Right now I am pissed at our Serbian actors who took part in her movie!
