    Local bus companies even hold female driver recruitment days lol
    My wife's cousin used to manage the truck fleet at a mine site in the Northern Territory (Australia), this was the trucks that drove down those big windy tracks in pits, he said they actually preferred women drivers as they were the more careful drivers.

    They still do. Although they're not the same at the barber I go to, the blade part is just a normal razor blade that fits into a holder in the arm that swings inside the handle. We had two when I was a kid that had belonged to my grandad, used to love playing with those, and the (decommissioned) WWI Webley revolver we also had from his father (i think).

    Come to think of it, we don't get too many female "barbers" do we?

    This thread has just reminded me of that "Lionel Blair-cut" Harp lager advert from around 1993 which had Brian Conley in it as the hairdresser (or Barber).
