Remember my bellyaching about how much my glasses cost? The plot thickens. I got a call on Wednesday from my eye doctor’s office.
“This is Beyonce from your eye doctor’s office.” (Her name’s not really Beyonce, in case you were wondering.) “I saw that you were in last week when I was out.” (I wondered why she wasn’t there. She’s the snarky one that I don’t like very much. I was glad to not see her that morning when I was picking out my glasses.) “I also saw that you canceled your order in a timely manner and the staff member returned your check. However, he did not cancel the order with the lab.”
My heart thought about stopping for a moment. It wasn’t a true freak-out moment, but I could imagine her next words would be “and you owe us $583.”
Instead, not-so-snarky-but-still-a-little-snarky Beyonce said, “They came in today and I can offer them to you today only for $350. Otherwise I have to throw them away.”
Too bad I already shelled out $425 for the identical pair from FrameLot.com last week, otherwise I’d be all over that. But my big question is why they can’t offer the glasses to me for that price in the beginning?
