Today is just not my day. First, the arm on my glasses broke. (well, technically that was last night as I was getting ready for bed. but that is so not the point.) I had to tape them together this morning just so they would sit semi straight on my face. I keep having to adjust them. Ian I can't see. So annoying.

I went on my lunch to try and get them fixed. First thing the lady says is they don't carry my glasses anymore. And not only that, they don't do business with the company that makes them, so they can't even order a part. So she goes in the back to see if they have any. They do. Good. But the warranty ran out in December so I'll have to pay 20 bucks for the arm. Whatever. Well then she took the tape off and looked at my glasses. It turns out the arm they have has a different joint. So no, they don't have a part. So now I am stuck with this broken pair until I can get in to get a new pair. I'm starting to get a headache from my glasses not sitting straight. I just want to go home now.

you know what I did when this happened to me? I went to the drugstore and looked at their display of magnifying glasses til I found one with the same type of hinge on the arm, and I replaced both arms of my glasses with the ones from the pair of magnifying glasses. It works perfectly and yeah, the glasses can cost about $20, but that's cheaper than a whole new pair of glasses.

Re:
yes, I could try that. If I weren't lazy. :) But I don't know if I'd find any that fit anyway. The hinge on my glasses is different. Which is why they didn't have any that fit at the eye doctor.

Plus, I've already talked to my mom and she's gonna pay for a new pair. I'm just gonna stop on my way home and order a new cheap pair of glasses. I am not up to putting effort into this today. :)
