Default An electric razor

Just yesterday, I purchased a new electric razor (my previous one just quit working).

When I began to use it this morning, I noticed something odd--at least I thought that it was odd--and that is that it has no trimmer for sideburns, nose hairs, etc.

Now, it is not some off-brand; in fact, it is a very well-recognized brand.

And it was not even their most basic model. (That one was just $19.99; this was $34.99.)

No, it did not advertise itself as having a trimmer. I just thought that all electric razors came with those, standard.

Was I mistaken? (It would appear that I was.)

I've never seen one without, at least, a couple of accessories...

But I corrected that today, as I got a refund on that razor, and purchased another one--this one, with a trimmer.

I guess I felt a bit like a person who had just purchased a new automobile--only to find our that it had no brakes; and to then learn that brakes were optional equipment, that are sold separately.
