Although I have to
admit I drove one shop teacher crazy by working around a
drill press with unsecured waist-length hair.

I feel for the man.  While Joe was working for a tire company a young man, 
son of one of the senior tiremakers, did just that--and got caught in the works 
and killed, right there in front of his father.  I don't think his hair was 
waist-length, more like shoulder-length, but it was too long to be unsecured.  
And remember how Isadora Duncan died.

I had long hair when I was younger, but I always wore it twisted up and 
secured when I was using or even just around power equipment, having a very 
safety-conscious father.
