Boomers vs. beards

Beards aren’t that well liked where I live especially among older folks, which means I receive a long list of “polite” hints about shaving. Highlights include:

“You look like a depressed artist that hangs around parks”

“You look like someone who’s just been released from a long stay at a hospital”

“You’re more beard than face”

“You look good, you don’t need to grow a beard”

“I would say you look nice if I could actually see your face”

“What are you trying to hide under there?”

“I’m sure the barbershops are safe even with covid”

“Forget covid it’s worth the risk”

“The thing about these style fads is you’ve got to change them often. Very often”
