Like those diet commercials. You see a guy go from 350 to 200 pounds, you think to yourself: "Oh look how skinny he is." Where as, if you just saw the 200 pound guy, you might think: "He Fat"

As I think about this, it's really the OP who is affected by this.

He trims his beard, gets a mountain of hair on the counter, cleans *most* of it up, and thinks, "That's much better!"

His wife walks in and (pretty reasonably) points out, "There's hair on the bathroom counter."
