Beauty Is In The Eyeglasses Of The Beholder

| Robeline, LA, USA | Bizarre, Love/Romance

(A customer approaches the counter with a soda just as I’m wiping my eyeglasses.)

Customer: “No!”

Me: “Sorry? No what?”

Customer: “No! You’ve got to put your glasses back on!”

Me: “Yeah, I know. I’ve got to wear them because I’m nearly blind.”

(I slide my glasses back on.)

Customer: “No, it’s just that you’re much too pretty without them. You’re better off if you keep them on.”

Me: “…What?”

Customer: “Yes, you have to keep them on or the men will be hitting on you in droves! You’ll have to have a stick to beat them off!”

(I hold up my left hand and point to my promise ring.)

Me: “No, this usually stops ‘em cold.”

Customer: “NO! The glasses are what stops them!”

Me: “Okay… So, that’ll be $1.77, sir.”

(The customer pays and returns to normal. However, as he walks out the door…)

Customer: “I’M TELLING YOU IT’S THE GLASSES!”
