WE KNOW HOW you feel. It’s Monday, you have the whole week looming ahead, and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: Reader Susan Kearns sent us this dilemma last week and it had us all nodding in agreement. When you’ve just paid approximately a zillion euro to get your hair trimmed by three milimetres, the common practice is to tip the hairdresser or barber a bit extra. It’s all a bit Irish isn’t it? What do you think? Mad or fair?
