Seriously?

     I dropped my old razor in the shower the other day, which caused it's demise....after shaving only one leg!  Finishing with just the top (blade) portion, without the handle was a challenge, but I managed, vowing to buy a new one on the way home from work.  (Since shaving everyday is something I've done since high school)
I stopped at "the Walmarts" (can someone explain why some people call it that?) after work to purchase a new razor.  Having been about 7 years or so since I've bought a new razor, I was shocked to see all the choices! 
I picked up one that seemed to be a pretty color, not really paying attention to the packaging.  Imagine my surprise this morning as I began to open the packaging in my "didn't get enough sleep" stupor to see that my new razor came with a AAA battery!
The crazy thing has a vibrator in it!
Here's what the manufacturer says about it:  "Gently exfoliates to instantly reveal more radiant skin. Soothing vibrations shave you close ...gently seeps away dull, dry skin."


All I have to say is, "WHATEVER".  I just wanted a razor...with 3 blades, not 5.  I don't need a stink'n vibrating razor to shave with! 
Notice the battery is still in the package?
What on earth is this world coming to?

  3. I have heard "the Mayo" before too...a cross between "the clinic" as us locals call it and just plain "mayo" I suppose? Oh and I shave everyday too...hate the day 2-3 pricklies. Does it really have 5 blades? way does anyone need 5 blades? seriously. :-)

  4. LOL, too funny. I always buy disposables, I'd probably be shocked if I looked at the real razors too!

    I had a patient say once (in southern accent) "I knew when Bob got sick we had to get us right down to "the mayo"
