Backwards Thinking

, , , , , | Right | January 25, 2010

(I am dispensing new glasses to a customer.)

Me: “Okay, now take a look around the store. Is your distance coming in clearly?”

Customer: “Yes, but it’s backward.”

Me: “Backward? What do you mean?”

Customer: “The sign… the letters on it are backward.”

Me: “Which sign?”

Customer: “The one in between the frames.”

(The customer then turns around and looks out into the store.)

Customer: “Now the sign looks right, but when I look this way…” *turns back around to face me* “…it’s backward. This has never happened before! What’s wrong with my glasses?”

Me: “Ma’am, are you looking in the mirror behind me?”

Customer: “Oh! That must be it! Well, then, my glasses are working wonderfully. Thank you!”
