If you’re one of those people that need to shave every other day, then I’m going to assume you all know too well the struggles of having to do this pain-in-the-ass thing.
If you don’t have to, lucky you. You’re so lucky, that you’ll now see what those who have to shave have to go through! And for those of you who do have to shave, share in the comments if you can relate to these issues.
1. Buying razors
An annoying process, especially when they’re so expensive and most of the time it’s the model that you want that’s the costliest.

2. Men’s razors work so much better than those marketed at women
I don’t know why, but that always seems to be the case.

3. The struggle of having to choose between cartridge razors and disposable ones
It’s really hard, because after all, aren’t all razors disposable?
4. THE BLADE COUNT
Seriously, it seems like the goodness of a razor nowadays is determined by the number of blades it has. All the brands are like “BUY THIS ONE IT HAS 60 BLADES”, which probably does the same job as a regular 3 or 4 blade razor for more money.

7. You always seem to cut yourself
Seriously, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cut myself, and not only does it hurt, but it bleeds for like 5 days.
