    Looks like everyone votes for a pass, a hug and scissors for every room in the house! I also have a tag on my (hidden) fabric scissors warning 'These are MY scissors! Death to trespassers!' Apparently it works. No one has died yet.

    Cutting hair is not far different from cutting wool, both are primarily protein. I think it's probably not a bad thing for your scissors. Still he should be prepared IN CASE you need to purchase a nice new pair because of this.

    I would have LOVED to have a picture. I'd already left for work when this happened. Wish I'd seen it!

    Yeah, I've forgiven him. He's a pretty great guy and also my best friend. He's getting new scissors and trimmer for Father's Day.

    It's paper that dulls scissors because of the wood pulp in it. I've never heard anything suggesting beards would be damaging to scissors, and when I wore bangs I often trimmed them with the best scissors from the sewing room. I think I'd be annoyed if he used them on his toenails, though. Gotta have some respect!

    I bought inexpensive scissors at Walmart and have them stashed everywhere. My husband has been repeatedly warned to not touch the sewing scissors. However, I still haven't been able to break him from using my kitchen shears on paper! May have to buy a daggone lock!!!

    Hey, he went to work and brings home a paycheck. So if he's otherwise a good husband and this is a one-time deal, I say forgive him.

    Yep! Think he deserves a pass this time. Now when my dad used my moms to trim his toenails. . .
