Maybe The Employees Need Glasses, Too

, , , , , | Working | August 31, 2020

All throughout my life, I have worn glasses. But when I start working on cars, I am able to wear contact lenses so I may wear more comfortable safety glasses and even sunglasses.

When I am dating my girlfriend — now wife — at times I will either wear contacts or just wear glasses. One weekend, we happen to walk by one of those stores that sell only sunglasses and I notice that one of the brands that I really like is on sale.

After browsing and seeing one that I like at a reasonable price, I take it to the register to pay for it. Please note that this is one of the times I am wearing glasses, not contacts.

The cashier hands me my purchase in a bag.

Cashier: “Here are your sunglasses and receipt.”

Me: “Thank you.”

Cashier: “By the way, would you like me to show you how to properly clean those sunglasses?”

I look at her, through my glasses, then at her coworkers standing next to her, and then back at her. I am thinking that it is a joke considering that I am currently wearing glasses in front of her.

Me: “No, thank you. I can properly clean them on my own. See, my own glasses are very clean!”

The cashier just gave me a blank stare, still not realizing I was wearing glasses, and I just walked away.
