I've decided to grow my beard again. I've missed having a full on beard, so I'm gonna go for it.
There is just one annoyance about this. Other people.
If someone get a new hairdo then general courtesy means that even if you think it looks like it was cut by a severely tourette's affected 5 year old, you nod and still say it's nice.
If someone grows a beard however, people think they have the right to take the piss and/or slag it off to your face.
You don't. So piss off.
