If you are a regular guy, you are probably comfortable spending around $40 for a basic haircut. If you are a woman, maybe around $60. But everyone knows that there are some people in the world who will pay exorbitant amounts of money for things that anyone else would buy for a fraction of the cost.
Well, this rule also apparently applies to haircuts as well. Here is a news release about the sultan of Brunei who paid 15,000 pounds for a haircut, which is about a staggering $25,000.
“Oh, and my rate is about $1,000 per minute”
Twenty five thousand dollars. All so that a barber could trim his hair slightly. Part of the reason for the cost was that the sultan paid for an entire apparently first-class cabin on a commercial airline flight. Yup, the sultan could not be bother to get his haircut on Earth’s surface like the rest of us puny humans. He required that his hair be cut above the clouds, while presumably snacking on pink diamonds and ancient golden artifacts.
This is probably his tool shed or something.
