    Had this goatee for 20 years.... I know, not a big deal, but it really threw me. I can keep the mustache, but I have to lose the goatee by tomorrow. (Note, it is very tasteful, 1/8 inch long.

    Bummer - why does that bother me?

    Wife is sitting here at the computer with me - keeps covering my goatee to see how I look. I'm not liking the look on her face.

    Between driving & goatee, obvious is the choice. I just seriously didn't know. May I assume it is so we present a "neat, clean appearance"?

    I had a full beard or goatee for years while I was parttime. When the opportunity to drive came-the beard went. It came down to "Show me the money." I grew it back whenever I had 2 weeks vacation in a row. The day I retired, I stopped shaving.

    I have a moustache and when I went in for the interview I knew that they would not allow anything more. I am in the military too so it is kept within standards.

    Benefits, I can't believe you would have to think twice about removing it when you are wanting to go to work so badly for a co. where you will make between $75,000 and 100,000.00 a year and "great benefits", I couldn't have gotten to a razor fast enough! I was a driver for 30 years and now retired with "great pension"!!

    I'm about to shave my head for the first time in 20 years because of my own choice! Imagine how I feel.

    In Florida?? Don't forget the SPF for your newly shaven head.

    If you can prove that your facail hair is for religious reasons then they can not make you shave it off.

    It's your choice--do you want to keep the goatee and stay at $8.50/hr or do you want to lose it and end up at top rate (currently $28.20/hr) after a few years?

    I had a goatee for years also. I wish we could have them as drivers as long as they are well kept. If we can have a mustache then why not? I mean mustaches are so 1970s. The thing I miss most about my goatee is how much faster it was to shave the rest of my face. And all I had to do to trim my goatee was run a goatee trimmer through it for a few seconds.

    Lose the goatee, keep the mullett.

    I keep a little "soul patch" under my bottom lip ; shaped like a triangle. I just keep my bottom lip poked out like most everybody else and they seldom notice! When they do, I have a razor in my locker. I hate shaving, but I only have to shave twice a week, got Cherokee or something in me.
