Shave and a Haircut - $10,000?

That'll make you long for the good ol' days.

It was a quiet day in Wilsonville, Oregon. A school day like any other. Right? Wrong. It was the day that Sally Miller’s 8 year old came home with an unauthorized hair cut. The little fellow went from a nice head of hair to a buzzed head of, well, nubs.

Miller claimed that she didn’t have the money for a haircut so she tried to keep it looking cared for. But when the boy slipped off to school without a good grooming, one employee of the school district took matters into his/her own hands. Or should I say, took the boy’s hair into their hands. A quick buzz with clippers and the evidence of unkept hair was gone. Mother Miller said she went from shock to embarrassment for not having the money to afford a trim to anger. It was the anger side of this story that caused the cha-ching noise from out of the Pacific Northwest.

Instead being grateful for saving her the $15 for a haircut, she threatened to sue. OK, it was haircut without permission. Well, the school district tried not to go to trial and their insurance carrier settled out of court for a cool $10,000. Of course, there was no admission of guilt by the district.

The superintendent of the school district commented after the settlement that "If someone needs a haircut, we'd be more than happy to go into our wallets to give them 20 bucks."

Oh, yeah now they tell him.
