    So, do I forgive him?

    My husband told me tonight that this morning when he was getting ready for work, his electric beard trimmer quit right in the middle of his beard, and he had half his beard short and half long. He said he looked all over the house for scissors and all he could find...you guessed it...was my good sewing scissors. So do I forgive him? Or should I have expected him to go to work with a half-shorn face?

    Sounds to me like a good reason to go scissor shopping

    You mean he needed something and he looked myself? He did not ask you to get it for him. He should get points for that.

    I agree with this - I believe he gets a pass. I doubt very much that it hurt your scissors. Beards are a natural fiber - right?

    I don't care for facial hair so I would gladly sacrifice my scissors.

    Give the guy a break and a beard trim shouldn't dull them too much.

    Go buy the same scissors for the house you have for your sewing and never worry about your scissors being looked for again. That's what I did and no one ever looks for the good scissors, they are all good.
    Got fabric?

    Give him a pass.

    Now as to scissors: we have many in every place in the house (the harbor freight kind), so my sewing scissors are off limits. I buy them by the dozen. DH knows when dull-throw them out and we'll get more, but DON'T USE MY SEWING SCISSORS.

    Give him a beard trimmer for Fathers Day. Also give him a pass this time. He did have to go to work.

    Give him points for being honest. He could have pretended he did not know why your scissors had whiskers stuck to them!

    How does he feel when you use his tools? My DH does not mind me using his tools as long as I put them back.

    I don't think using your scissors to trim his beard was a cardinal sin. I also would give him a pass.

    But make sure he gets a new beard trimmer.

    I say let him know he is still on your good side.

    I agree with Bearisgray........make sure he gets a new beard trimmer.

    shouldn't hurt a good pair of scissors.

    LOL would like a picture of that! I agree he gets points for honesty. I make sure that DH & DS have lots of scissors to choose from so they aren't tempted by mine. The junk drawer alone currently has four pairs, although that number fluctuates.

    I'd give him a pass, but I'd also go out and buy scissors for every room in the house.

    I might forgive him, but would buy a new pair of scissors just in case. I love it - my family never asks, just goes ahead and uses my things without permission, then never put them back. A half-shorn face might have been interesting. It could be a real fashion statement. LOL.

    LOL this is why DH has 2 beard trimmers, 2 ear trimmers (one in each bathroom) and house scissors all over the place-the garage, the guest room (yes I said in the guest room!LOL), the kitchen and even in the sheds out back. Got tired of him taking my good scissors and bought some cheapies and put them every where(and yes even replace my good scissors !LOL). Some places have 2 .. LOL

    Bless him for using his head. He found your scissors and then confessed !!!!Kiss him and buy a new scissors for your sewing room. I tie a red ribbon on the handle of MY scissors. I also have a school supply drawer with scissors, colors, Scotch tape, paper clips, etc.... Hugs and a kiss for your husband

    give him a break, as a x- beautician and from experience I know that his beard didn't do any damage. But cutting fabric with barber shears, dulls them in no time.

    LOL......No need to go out and buy new scissors to "show" him that he broke a cardinal rule.

    Our scissors are not that delicate that one wrong cut ruins them for life.
