Since this board is always a great place to get random questions answered, here is a beaut!

How do you tactfully tell a guy he has hairy ears??

Ha!

Tactfully is not in my vocabulary either! That is why I came here!!

I don't want to hurt his feelings or embarrass him...I honestly think he doesn't know they are hairy...this guy is clean cut, handsome, well dressed, smells good...pretty much perfect...except SUPER hairy ears!

I do know he said he was due for a haircut...do barbers clean up your ears?? Maybe he didn't realize they were furry since his barber usually takes care of that?!?

A barber will usually trim the lobes with the general 'cleanup' around the ears. But in my general experience, if getting to the hair involves any level of spelunking, he/she ain't going there.

As to how to drop the word, there's always this: "HEY WEREWOLF! THOSE EARS ARE GROSS!"

Or, more subtly, you can invest in a really good rotary-trimmer (nose hair/ear hair/eyebrows) and give it to him as a gift.

I don't know about the barber, that's actually a good question!

Is this guy a friend? If you're pretty close, I'd almost say something like "You've got something on your ear", reach up to touch (BUT DON'T), pull your hand away, and say, "Oh, it's just a hair". Then I'd assume he'd get the idea.

Wow, that was detailed!

When DH has a nose hair that's a tad too long (*gag*), I look at him funny to get his attention and motion to my own nose. He reaches up, grabs a few, and YANKS THEM OUT. OUCH! ROFL, I'm sorry, you made me laugh this morning after a night of no sleep, so forgive me if I'm being silly! Furry ears will do that to you!

LOL!

"It's just A hair" would actually be "oh, its just a tuft of hair!"

Do you know where he goes to get his hair done? You could call ahead and have the barber tell him =)

What irks me even more are men (and it's usually older men) w/the out-of-control eyebrows. Like Andy Rooney-style. I once worked w/an elder pastor who had wooly caterpillers up there. I mean HURK!! The hairs were so long they curved down and would stick in his eye. And then he'd get all blinky and watery and swipe at it as if it were a fly.

IT'S YOUR FRIGGING EYEBROWS, METHUSELA, GET A TRIMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If he is a good friend I would just tell him.

As for eyebrows... there is a guy at work that could really use a good grooming. I pluck SU's wild ones and he uses his beard trimmer when he notices. How about a little grooming boys!

No kidding, nothing worse than a unibrow or caterpillers(caterbrows)on a man or women.

I guess the best approach is to be straight forward and tell him to get his ear hairs trimmed. I know I would want to know about it.

YES that is gross....if they look in the mirror how can they not see those critters? OMG I was watching some show and the older man had such large eyebrows they went half way up his forehead!! He could of had a "comb back" instead of a comb over!! :eek:
