My trip to LensCrafters.

Let me first start by saying I have not worn glasses since I was 10 years old and got my first pair of contacts. When I was a kid my choices for frames were big clunky plastic frames with pink/purple or weird designs on them. They sucked. I hated glasses and loathed the fact I was the only one out of my friends who had to wear them.

My face is round and big and with my chipmunk cheeks my face is even bigger. I had no idea how horrible it would be to find glasses until yesterday. I force my boyfriend to go with me since he's honest and I don't trust sales people to tell you the truth. I'm there trying on pair after pair of glasses only to look over and see my boyfriend laughing. Half didn't even fit right on my face, most were too small while others too big. The cute ones I really wanted never looked right. It was awful. Hundreds of glasses and a third are cut out because I refuse to buy plastic frames. Visions of how I looked when I was a child come to my mind. I put a few on for fun though and I was right, they looked like crap. When your boyfriend almost doubles over from laughing you know you should stay away from them.

Finally after 20+ minutes my tray has 4 pairs of glasses. That's right four pairs. I finally get one of their specialist helpers. It's a small little Asian woman, well not really small since she is the size of a typical Asian woman, but me being oddly tall she was much smaller then me. The first thing she tells me when looking at what I picked was, "Oh no! Those frames are all too big for your face. We Asians have bigger faces so we need smaller square frames. I'll make sure we get you some smaller frames." She has on small very square and "in" type of metal glasses. They look cute on her, lucky bastard.

She moves towards the beginning of the selection to help me pick some and I whisper to Matt, "Be ready to call in my work for me. If she tries to stick me with small frames that look like crap on me I'm going to have to give her a beat down."

The first pair of glasses she handed to me were plastic. I looked down at them in my hands and then looked at her. "Try them on," she said smiling.

"No. I refuse to wear plastic," I replied bluntly.

"You'll look good," she said as if she was trying to assure me she had good taste.

"No. I wore plastic as a child and I refuse to now. They look bad on me," I replied in a firm tone. To make my point I tried them on, glared at her and then looked at my boyfriend who had a Cheshire cat grin on his face.

"We'll then we'll find you some metal frames," she said moving into another section without even confirming I was right.

"I swear if she tries to get me to buy something you don't like I'm going to walk out," I whispered to my boyfriend as I see her eyeing more small square frames.

After having her give me about 10 frames she decides to tell me something that if I was more sensitive about my round chipmunk cheek face I might have gotten upset over. In a blunt and yet half laughing tone she said, "The glasses look like a good size until you start to put them on and I see how small they are to your face." No shit Sherlock. She also made a comment on how my boyfriend was mean because he didn't say yes or no he always just laughed when I asked for his opinion. I told her I'd rather him laugh then lie and then I'd be stuck with glasses that don't look good on me.

After over a half an hour we finally decided on 3 different frames. It took us a minute to pick the one we liked the best out of those three. Yeah I know. The ironic thing is that they were the first pair I tried on. For kicks she had me try on her. My boyfriend laughed and then she started saying things she shouldn't have. She wanted his opinion. He's honest, it's one of the many reasons why I love him so much. I don't have to worry about him lying to me when I ask him if I look good in X outfit or not. She asks if he thinks her glasses are cute. He says yes. She asks if they look good on her. He doesn't say anything and after a while he says they look ok. Ok was obviously not the answer she wanted since she started to pout. She then started talking about how her son likes her wireless frames since they make her look younger, but I reminded her that wire frames tend to make people look smarter. She's sticking with wire frames.

Considering my discount covered the frames paying over 300 bucks for lenses seems like a lot, but that's why I have my caf. plan at work so I'll get my money back...kind of. I should get them by the end of next week so I should be able to wear them on the weekend.

When I tried them on seeing the rim of my glasses bugged me. I'm sure I was used to it as a kid, but since it was the 80's I probably never saw the rim since "big" was in. I hope I can get used to wearing glasses since in order to get the surgery I have to wear them everyday for 6 months to a year. I figure I'll get used to wearing glasses for the rest of this year and then next year I'll only buy glasses and the year after I'll get the surgery. My boyfriend was surprised at the cost and said they were too much for "f*** it glasses", but since I plan on wearing them all weekend plus a day or two during the week I think it's ok. I can't wait to show my co-workers. They've never seen me in glasses before and I look very different.

Frustrated.

I wanted to blog about something different, but I am frustrated. I am a bit pissy. I can't wait until I get off work in an hour and 30 minutes. I'm not sure if it's because I expect too much from the new receptionist when I spoke to her on the first day or what, but I am far from impressed.

Here's an example of why. It takes a while for a company that I deal with for the info I need to get to me. It's usually a week or more before I get it for who knows what reason so when it comes I am always on the look out for it. I handle the commissions so while handling the mail can be a hard or confusing task it is not for my dept. If you see the words commission, concession or compensation it's mine. Period. Ok there are SOME exceptions, but I refuse to tell any of the temps what they are until we can get one to last at least 3 months.

Any ways, when I come back from lunch there's what I've been waiting for. It was put in the scanning pile that a co-worker go through when she has time, which isn't always every day. I ask the new receptionist what made her put it back there. First it's questioning if she even is the one who put it back there. Well yes it is, I wouldn't have been asking if it wasn't. Then it's her needing to look on her sheet. Ok we gave her the ground rules and not once does it say anything about commission info going in the back. In fact it says everything goes to me. Then it's oh since it's X company it should go to Y person. If she had given it to Y then it would have gotten to me, not to the scanning pile. /starts to get a small headache She took something that was concerning another employee and the mail he gets and twisted it in something completely different. She did this with a phone call that came in today as well, among other phone call problems that I won't go into since it will add another 3-4 paragraphs of ranting.

When you screwed up take fault. Say, "Oh I put it back there? I'm sorry I must have put it in the wrong pile." Don't flip-flop all over the place. Say you're sorry for screwing up which can cost people their lively hood for a week. You may think a week isn't that long, but when you're expecting X amount of money to hit your account yeah 7 more days can really suck. You're counting on that money. This isn't the first time either. It's like she just doesn't get it. I tell her the three words to look for and she just doesn't get it. Sure it's been 4 days, but even the previous girl understood it after the 2nd day. I'm starting to see bad habits I keep having to tell her about. It's frustrating me to no end. The receptionist position REALLY shouldn't be THIS hard to fill!

Oh yeah picking out glasses tonight with my boyfriend. I'd say I'd post a picture, but I suck at pictures. Maybe I'll just take a picture of the frames that I decide on when I get them. I'll always wear contacts, but this is so I can start getting used to glasses. I want laser surgery and you have to wear glasses and not contacts to get it. It takes me a long time to get used to extra weight, which is why I can't get used to make-up, watches, etc. It makes that part of my body feel heavy.
