A Story of Glasses And The Really Long Wait It Took To Get Them

Two of the basic rules of writing a title are 1. Never reveal too much about the story and 2. Make it short. I have failed at both, but despite my horrible title, I still have a story to tell:

My eyes were growing weaker, and so naturally I went to the optometrist, otherwise known as the doctor whose name is incredibly hard to spell… Wait a second that's all of them. I think it's a law of all doctors to make their title unnecessarily long and hard to spell: Chiropractor, Physician, Pediatrician...Wait a second, what was I writing about? (Looks at really long, story revealing title) Oh yeah the glasses, and you guys called my title "horrible."

But back to the story. I went to the optomitrist optomatrist optometrist, and needed new contact lenses and glasses, so he told me to come pick them up next week. Very easy instructions. Next week, I go to pick them up, but the lenses won't fit in the glasses, so he has to send them away, and I have to wear my contacts all day and then spend the night blind until Monday.

I come in Monday and alas no glasses. Thursday, he assures me. I come in Thursday, and nada, no glasses. He'll have them next week, so I come in Wednesday. Now I know what you're thinking, it's been three weeks, he must have them, and you're not all wrong. He was closed. Who closes on Wednesdays? So I went home empty handed yet again. But finally, the next day I come in and DA DA DA DAAAAA they are there. Finally, I can see clearly yet again.

So what can you, dear reader, learn from this blog post?
1. Sometimes long, story revealing titles can come in handy.
2. Doctors have annoyingly long names.
3. Glasses lenses take a long time to make, so if you're on your way to pick yours up now, turn around, come back in two weeks, and they might be done by then, but probably not.

  2. It's soooo annoying when the glasses don't come! I mean, you have to wear lenses at home as well. Luckily mine come within 3 days. ;)

    1. I know right? You win in the glasses department. By my calculations, 3 days is much better then three weeks.

    1. Thanks for the compliment :) I did go nuts! I went so nuts squirrels began to follow me around. Of course, I couldn't see them because I didn't have any glasses, but they were there.

      Glad you enjoyed the post, I hope you liked the bonus content too :)

  8. Very interesting. I hope you finally got your glasses. Also doctors don't have good handwriting. That's a given.

  9. You are far too kind. If I had been forced to make that many trips to pick up my glasses, they would have been free or heavily discounted. ;-)

    Kendratoo stopping by from blogaholic!

  12. This is hilarious --- it took almost three weeks for my son to receive his glasses, so your story was spot-on in describing our experience!
