Yes I name my stuff. In today’s episode of rambling and musing mostly rambling, I’m talking about my eyeglasses aka my Selena Rainbows. They’re named after the brand – Selena and the rainbow colored frames. I first wrote about my experience here if you want to begin at the beginning.
I was going to go to a different place to have things made right. Then after much feedback in person and on the blog, I decided that the same place owed me. One afternoon this week I took off early to return my new specs for adjustment. I was trying to get the deed done and get back online for an afternoon meeting which I couldn’t miss.
I’m the worst about time y’all. Always early and worry if I’m not … or perceive I am not going to be on time. Instead of discussing the issue, I basically threw my glasses at the girl and said I’ll be back Saturday! Went home and made my meeting with 15 minutes to spare. Whew!
Guess what today is? Saturday!!!
Per the website, the place is open 8:30 to 12:30. I slept in until 9ish which helped my case because when I got there, only one car was in the lot. Another customer. Turns out the Saturday hours are 9:00 to 1:00. Yet it was after 9 and I could tell the place was still closed. Holy hell! I cannot take off work to come back here again. Well I can but what a freaking inconvenience!! I called the number thinking maybe an employee got dropped off but my call went straight to voice mail.
I got out of the car and talked to the gentleman who had been waiting since 8:30! Mind you it was already 9:25 when I arrived. He gave me an earful about his experience. Hopping mad! I was only irritated. We both decided to leave. As I’m returning to my car, I see a Blazer turning left and speeding to the back employee parking lot.
As soon as I heard the front door lock open, I rushed in and proceed to word vomit why I am there. Of course she’s apologizing as she’s turning the lights and everything else on.
She re-measures and sure enough, the lab put my Selena Rainbows at 18 and I’m 22. The 4 degree drop makes all the difference in the world. They will have to send back the glasses … not until Monday. The corrected lens should be ready in about two weeks. Thanks goodness my old pair will tide me over.
I might write a piece to conclude my saga or not … if not you’ll know things worked out just fine.
As always, more to come.
