then at work tonight.. thsi random dude calls me into a back room to tell me that there is a new rule that anyone with a beard over 1/4'' has to wear a BEARD NET. like a hairnet stuck on my chin. you have no idea how goofy this looked. like 10 minutes after that, this otehr guy calls me into the back to tell me i can't work with the bandage on my arm from giving blood, "for aesthetic and safety reasons" so i had to wear one of those boxy chef jackets cuz they have longer arms and covered it
 so i guess i have to get a beard trimmer now, or just shave it all off, cuz there's no way in hell i'm wearing that again. i kept it cuz it was so silly. i'm gonna see how much beard trimmers cost, cuz i have no idea, but i'm thinking 1/4'' would just look stubbly and be a pain to maintain anyway, so i will probably shave it. i hate shaving.. i'm used to beard dan, now i'm gonna look 12 again
