    And while I haven’t trimmed without the guard on. I did mess up a few years ago and shaved too high up while cleaning up the neck. It looked bad. I said screw it. Shaved down to a mustache. Then walked out of the bathroom.

    My wife saw it and just said, “Nope.”

    I went back and finished the job. Luckily I was on Christmas vacation and off for two week. I was at least able to recover enough before work.

    I never let the beard get very long and shave it off totally a few times a year, then let it grow again for several months, and then repeat. My wife likes me to have a beard, but some of the grandkids tell me they prefer me when I am clean shaven. For me a beard is still a novelty whenever I grow one. After 24 years in the Army, it felt like a crime not to shave in the morning. And most of the next 24 years I was working for a large corporation where beards were not part of the culture. But since I retired 6 years ago, I have been growing and shaving beards on a whim.

    I've had the beard since late 70's...mostly kept short...and as for the trimmer, as mentioned check twice cut once....I may have made it too short once or twice...but never any "bald" spots!

    I’ve had facial hair since 1974. First 20 years or so it was always a beard. Slipped with trimmer and had to reduce it to a Vandyke (mustache plus goatee).

    Thinking of growing a full beard back for fall/winter.

    This was last June, that’s a 9month beard, and I had another year on it. Lol

    I can count the hairs on my chest..and chin, LOL, so I never have much of anything on my face to slip and hack off with my buzzer during a trimming operation, 'cept my eyebrows!

    But maybe this'll count? Just the other day after replacing the perforated primer bulb on my weed whacker I was toolin' around the yard testin' it out, and I guess I became a little whackhappy and wasn't paying close enough attention to what I was doing, and I got too close to one of my already-partially-eaten-by-my-friends-the-deer rhododendron shrubs and whacked off one of it's few remaining branches, sigh... :(
