So. Yesterday we were there when they opened. My glasses were ready, all right.....SINGLE-vision lenses. :bangs head: Turns out the guy who "helped" us - after ALL the discussion of if my chosen frames would work with progressive lenses - said I wanted Single Vision lenses. :bangs head:
The manager "graciously" comped us the difference in price ($177!!!!), and gave me "temporary" lenses. Um. I was supposed to come home with basic, no-frills (NO anti-glare, for example, which isn't a frill) progressive; I came home with the same damn lenses that were in them to begin with.
Which give me headaches.
I can't tell if it's from the glare, or the prescription. :sigh:
I'm back in my old glasses, which ALSO give me headaches (because the prescription is old, and doesn't work as well)......and I was up all night, I guess from frustration. I don't like spending almost $300 for glasses *I CAN'T WEAR*. Even if they did supposedly order the "correct" lenses....which I have my doubts.
So. Cranky fiberaddict is CRANKY, and head-achy and in a rotten mood - and it's only 5:30 AM. Today is going to be all kinds of fun, isn't it?
We did salvage something of the day - we spent the hour and a half waiting for my temporary lenses at Half-Price. Didn't score much, but I got a couple of homeschooling books ("The Well-Educated Mind" and "A Family's Journey of Homeschooling"...both of which kinda suck, but oh well.) a knitting book (also sucks....turns out there's only 1 pattern I might knit...but Herself liked the book. What do you do?) and a book on Irish Wolfhounds. Came home to a good mail-day: got 2 of the 3 "Life of Fred" books. I read "Fractions" last night; think it'll help Herself. I hope, anyway.
