Third Arcitec Winner
A big ShavingStuff congratulations to Jared, who has won himself an arcitec razor. Jared's story is, how do I say this, south of the border. And while he's won himself a Philips Norelco arcitec, perhaps he'd be better served with a BodyGroom:
I was about 16, had started shaving maybe a year earlier, and was starting to understand that one's face isn't necessarily the only area of the body that can be shaved. Being ... curious ... i decided that I should shave my um, euphemisms. So i took my Mach 3 downtown and got to work. Naturally, I got nicked. It wasn't particularly more painful than any other area, but it just WOULDN'T stop bleeding! I washed off and dried off and sat in the bathroom for what seemed like hours waiting for it to stop bleeding. Being a kind of nervous 16 year old, i got more and more worried, until i reached the point of full-on freaking out. So, I did the only thing i could think of doing... i started yelling for my dad. He came to the bathroom door and yelled "What?" and i told him what happened. He stood outside the door, totally silent for a few seconds. Then just yelled back "Well why the hell did you do that?" I responded "Well i didn't try to cut myself!" to which he replied, "I wasn't talking about cutting yourself, you peckerhead!" Anyways, he told me what in hindsight was the obvious solution--hold some toilet paper on the cut until it stops bleeding, which occurred shortly thereafter. I couldn't look my dad in the face for at least a full day, I was so embarrassed!
Oof. Harsh father. If shaving didn't scar you for life, his words might have. Hope you two have made up.
Well, that about sums up our contest. A big thanks to Philips Norelco for providing us and our winners with arcitec razors, and thanks to everyone who wrote in or signed up to our mailing list. There's nothing like a good, mildly embarrassing shaving story. We'll have to do this again sometime.
