I always believed I would look hideous with a shaved head. Only some sort of financial incentive would spur me to sport a cue ball. It would be more of a cue block, really, so to protect myself and others I’ve never entertained the notion.
It’s a good thing I don’t live in New Zealand.
Apparently Air New Zealand will pay me if I shave my head and stand in a line at one of three airports (or all three, I suppose, if I make the rounds).
The catch (besides the whole smooth pate thing) is that they would first decorate my head with a temporary tattoo promoting a new check-in system. If I lived in New Zealand, this might be an easy second job, and one I could work around my unpredictable day job hours.
One application of the tattoo lasts up to two weeks, you say? Hmmm… that could have implications at the office. Better re-think this. Plus, a move to New Zealand probably wouldn’t work out for me right now.
I have at least two baldy friends reading this. Maybe you guys should do this in your area. In essence, you’d get paid for your good head.
