We’ve all had a bad haircut before. Growing up, my Oma (German for Grandma) used to be the barber for all of the grandkids. And by barber, I mean she would go one guard and take it down, often cutting pieces of my ear. At 10, this didn’t really matter but it seems that Lane Kiesling’s son of Hico Independent School District in Texas had a bad experience with some clippers.
“It was just very choppy like Jim Carrey on ‘Dumb and Dumber’ but rounder and a little bit shorter,” she said. “That’s exactly what it looked like.”
I’m sorry Mrs. Kiesling, I was dying when I read that. Kudos to you for the reference. Understandably, Lane’s son didn’t want to show his “Lloyd Christmas” for the camera. I’m sure some of you reading had the “emo” years, rat tails and other unfortunate do’s back in the day. Hopefully, he’ll look back on this some day and think it’s funny, I know I would.
I’m not sure what kind of school one goes to that mandates certain hairstyles, especially in Texas. According to The Hill, “Kiesling said he was warned weeks earlier that he needed to get his hair cut, but said his family has been on a tight budget after moving.”
Budget or not, no one deserves a Lloyd Christmas, unless that’s your thing and then by all means, make it happen. I feel bad for the kid. Poor guy gets scalped. According to his mom, “Kiesling said he returned to class after the haircut, where his peers laughed and made fun of him.”
Hopefully, it all works out. The school gave him some sort of run around about how it is “part of our commitment to provide a safe and secure learning environment.” Imagine that being the response given to messing your kids street cred. I wholeheartedly hope Mrs. Kiesling puts on her best “let me speak to your manager” cut and gives Hico Independent School District the business.
