The 16 Most Awful Parts Of Shaving

Let it be known: I. Hate. Shaving.

Posted on

1. Having to shave in the first place.

I mean, who decided that shaving was the de facto setting for men's faces? Why can't we let our freaky beard flag fly? And don't say, "You can!" because I can't. My wife won't let me.

2. Looking like you got into a fight with a tiny swordsman.


No matter how old you are and how much experience you have shaving, you will still get nicks from time to time. If the toilet paper treatment isn't your deal, you can try plain chapstick instead. Trust me, it works wonders.

3. The tough to get spots, like under your nose and chin.


For some reason, the hairs here are harder to get than front row tickets at a One Direction concert (not that I've tried, though). Also, the amount of facial gymnastics you have to do when shaving these areas is comical, to say the least.


10. Getting 5 o'clock shadow at 2 p.m.

Unless you're my friend Danny who can shave with a wet paper towel, chances are you will get the "shadow" sometime later in the day after shaving. Unfortunately, you will not look like Hugh Jackman.


16. And finally... Being jealous of other gorgeous beards.

Look at that thing; it's majestical. Even his helmet is like, "Nah, I'm cool up here. I don't want to compete with that thing."
