A video has gone viral on Facebook of a teenager attempting to knock out a barber for giving him a bad haircut.
While no one likes getting a bad haircut, one kid has really let his feelings known when he realised he had been left with much shorter hair than he wanted!
But rather than politely mention his dissatisfaction to the manager, the unknown lad thought the appropriate way to deal with the issue was to try and knock out the barber.
Yes, like you I am wondering where his manners are!!!
You can watch footage of the incident here:
34-year-old David Smithson was in Ali’s Super Cut on Hall Gate in Doncaster town centre yesterday afternoon when it all kicked off.
Smithson, who also filmed the video, exclusively told UNILAD the kid asked for a ‘1.5 on top instead of back and sides’, when he probably meant he wanted a short back and sides of 1.5 – but not on the top.
As seen in the video, the kid can be heard loudly swearing then swinging at the barber before storming out.
The lad, who Smithson estimates to be around 14 years old, can be heard saying to the barbers:
You taking the p*ss? You taking the p*ss dickhead?
I’ll knock you spark out. Do something big balls! Come outside!
F*cking daft c*nt! I swear to God!
In the video those in the barbershop can be seen staring in shock as they are taken aback by both the kid’s actions and use of language.
Smithson told UNILAD the lad then turned his anger onto his mum and yelled at her after she dragged him back into the shop.
He came back in with his mum, holding his head like he had been injured. His mum kicked off at first but then when the hairdresser explained she sat the lad down.
He was saying to his mum ‘are you going to f*cking walk into town and get me a hat then?’
The mum said ‘if you carry on talking to me like that you’ll get nothing!!’
It was the lad’s fault. He wanted short back and sides but ended up leaving looking like a dry roasted peanut.
The hairdressers shaved it all down to a grade one but you could still see the patch and he was told to go back in a couple of weeks after it had grown back.
To be honest, if I was the barber I wouldn’t have even invited the kid back!
With Smithson sharing the video on his personal Facebook page, it quickly went viral receiving over 956,000 views at time of writing (July 27).
As Smithson concluded though, he is unsure why people are so shocked at the footage as ‘it’s just another typical day in Doncaster’.
Next time the lad goes to the barbershop, we think he may double check he has asked for the right haircut first before he lets them loose with the clippers!
