The barbershop was always busy. It was one of those places where people came to socialize as much as they came to get their hair cut. As the owner, Frank always made sure to keep the conversations flowing. He knew all of his customers by name and always had a story to share.
One day, a new face walked into the shop. Frank greeted him with a smile and asked him what he could do for him. The man replied that he just needed a trim. Frank pulled out his scissors and got to work.
As he cut, Frank chatted with the man, asking him about his life. The man was a bit reserved at first, but soon warmed up to Frank. He told Frank about his job, his family, and his hobbies.
Before long, the man’s trim was complete. He thanked Frank and went on his way. Frank was always happy to make a new friend, and he knew that he’d see the man again soon.
