Two Barbers (Posted on 2002-12-27) Difficulty: 2 of 5
A Man is visiting a town and decides to get his hair cut.

He asks a boy where he can find a barber and the boy says there are only two barbers in the town.

The boy shows him the first one. Inside the barber has hair all over the floor, dirt everywhere and long uneven hair.

He goes to the other one and sees the barber is dressed in pristine clothing, well cut, and his floors are well swept and clean.

The man changes his mind and goes to the other barber.

Why does he do this?

Well, my guess is that he went back to the other barber because he looked like he got a lot more business than the other. The fact that the other barber's shop was clean and he was well dressed is because he has no customers. The fact that the messy barber has a messy shop shows that everyone goes there to get their hair cut. SO he wants to go where everyone else does.
