I'm retired, lazy, and find reading about shaving on B and B more fun than shaving. So sue me!!
Sometimes I wonder if we were related in a past life.
I never had a job that required me to shave. Prior to taking up DE, I only shaved on weekends, or days I had to testify in court for my job. I'd sometimes went from Labor Day to Memorial Day without shaving. I tried, but could not stand a beard in the summer heat. I quit growing the temporary beard because my youngest daughter would go into hysterics when I shaved it off. I would use the side burn trimmer on an old electric to get the bushy bulk down, before using a cart. It became too emotional for my wife and I, so I stopped growing it.
Once I took up DE shaving I enjoyed it, and began shaving every other day well into retirement. Covid, and a move from our house of almost 20 years, changed my shaving habits. I've gotten lazy and now shaving every 5 -6 days.
