New Glasses

Delaney came up last night and said his glasses were broken. Someone had stepped on the frame, or on the side, and one of the arms was loose and bent. He could wear them, but they weren't very stable. So after karate we headed to Wal-Mart to see about new frames. I was hoping they could repair these, or that the frames wouldn't be too much.

They were busy and said we would need to wait 30 minutes, so we decided to run a few errands first. Before we left, we checked the frames on the wall and found his. $118 for the frames, which seemed like a big expense. Made me wish I'd gotten him kid's frames instead, but I sucked it up and prepared to spend the $118 when we came back.

When we got back it was dead, so the guy looked up our account and checked. We found frames, and he said that he could pop out the old lenses and slip them in the new frame. He was joking with Delaney and not saying much, but he got the lenses in and then adjusted the arms better. He bent them down, which hadn't been done before, and they were much more secure on Delaney's head.

Then he said since we'd bought them last November, we were inside the 1 year warranty. So we didn't pay anything and Delaney ended up with new frames. He's happy, and I was glad we weren't out $100.
