5 BARBERS - NO WAITING


Walking around Wall Street area, I saw this sign "5 Barbers - No Waiting - You Tried the Rest Now Try The Best", I immediately thought of Floyd the Barber from the Andy Griffith Show. In the episode "The Bookie Barber", Floyd was excited that his barbershop would be known as a two-chair barbershop, no waiting. Turned out Floyd was tricked by the other barber using his shop as a front for an illegal booking (off track betting) operation.

I did not go into the barbershop (actually I think the people in the shop gave me the dirty look that said, "Damned tourists, taking pictures of everything. Leave us alone!"), so I could not tell whether this 5 Barbers shop got enough magazines to swing it! (For non-Mayberry fans, this is Floyd's all time classic line "Uh-huh - and I got enough magazines to swing it" when Andy talked about putting up a sign in the window "Two Chair Shop - No Waiting.")

After months of working in the area, I finally noticed this barber shop just last week, or at most 2 weeks ago.

What a coincidence, eh? People would never believe that I selected and pulished the photo for this post without ever talking to you or that we did not discuss this barbershop until now. The wonder of blogging :)
