In order to ascertain if an experiment is accurate and reliable, people often repeat the data collection many times. So, you are invited to collect your own data and to arrive at your own conclusions.
Over the last couple of years i have been using many different barber shops across Dublin to get my hair cut. Trying to find the perfect barber that i can stay loyal to forever. Have now tried about 20 of them. One Polish one is cheap and no frills- 7 quid. Another Polish one is priced at the market rate of a tenner yet she takes ages to cut your hair and does an excellent job. 45 minutes in the chair. The fellas from Azerbaijan will throw in a head massage and some exotic eyebrow treatments for free - a good 35 minutes fun. The Turkish fellas use hot towels and make me feel like a Sultan for a day - for 9 quid.
The one notable observation is that about half the Irish ones are just ok, acceptable. And the other half of the Irish ones are truly abysmal. The worst example being an auld fella in the city centre who begins cutting my hair and then after about 4 minutes goes 'voila, all done, thats 18 quid pleeease'. And when you ask him to 'please finish the job' he makes a face akin to Padre Pio weeping for all the pains in the world and starts to bemoan the death of De Valera.
So, lets forget about hair and think about 'the service industry' in general. Is it worth buying Irish or is it sentimental financial suicide ?
