Do Danes have a difficult time telling when a person is saying "altid" and when he is saying "aldrig"?

I really don't get this sentence

No, I never shave with a razor. I always use one of those electrolysis machines, or I use tweezers to pull the whiskers out one by one, or I use an electric razor.

But an electric razor is still a razor. What about a short sword? I think it's called a saxe or something like that. Definitely came with the Vikings

The English translion should have "myself" in it.

Nah, in English it would be assumed I'm shaving myself. I think the Danes just like their reflexive pronouns
