Famous Last Words: “Just a trim”

What part of "Just a trim, please" did my barber not understand?  I was painfully clear: "I want to keep the length, but just a trim to clean up around the sides." 

What I got is a modified crew cut.  Not very helpful when I was hoping to grow my hair out a bit.

    Ugh. Sorry. That same thing happened to me almost 4 years ago when I asked for “just a trim” to my shoulder-length hair, and wound up with inch-long hair. I’m still recovering.

    I am notorious for getting bad haircuts. I feel your pain.
