It seems nobody under the age of 20 can spell or add up any more.

Mathew lived in a big city, and his hair was always cut by the same hairdresser. Mathew went to himonce a month. He was allowed one hour for his lunch every day, and in the mornings when his hair wasgoing to be cut, he made himself some sandwiches to eat in the hairdressers.

The hairdresser had a very small shop near Mathew’s office, and he worked alone, but he always cutMathew’s hair exactly as Mathew liked it, and while he was doing it, the two men talked about football orcricket.

But the hairdresser was, an old man, and one day, when Mathew was sitting in his chair, and his hairwas being cut as usual, the old man said to him, «Mathew, I’m going to be sixty-five years old next month,so I’m going to retire. I’m going to sell my shop to a young man who wants to be a hairdresser. The shop’sbeing paid for by the young’s man father.»

Mathew was very sad to hear this, because he enjoyed talking to the old man, and he was also worried that his hair would not be cut as well by the new young man as it had been for so many years by his old friend.

He went to the shop again the next month, and the new man was there. He cut Mathew’s hair, but he did it very badly.

The next month, Mathew went into the shop again. The young man asked him how he would like his hair cut, and Mathew answered, «Please, cut it very short on the right side, but leave it as it is on the left. It must cover my ear. On top, cut all the hair away in the middle, but leave a piece at the front which can hang down to my chin.»

The young man was very surprised when he heard this. «But, sir», said, «I can’t cut your hair like that!»

«Why not?» Mathew asked. «That’s how you cut it last time».
