    Infinitely Loopy, Part 6

    | AZ, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (I’m at the optician. After spending several minutes adjusting my new glasses to sit properly on my face, the optician realizes that she has to adjust the ear pieces. This is because one of my ears is slightly lower than the other.)

    Optician: “Here they are! They look great!” *hands me my glasses*

    Me: “Great! They really are nice and level now!”

    Optician: “And here’s a nice hard case that comes with them so they won’t be damaged.” *hands me the case*

    Me: “Um, these won’t fit in this case. Can I have a soft one?”

    (I show her how the adjusted ear piece prevents the case from closing all the way.)

    Optician: “Oh, I can fix that!”

    (The optician takes out the glasses and bends the ear piece that she just spent 10 minutes working on back into its original position.)

    Optician: “See? Now it closes.”

    Me: *sighs*

    (I pull the glasses out and put them on my face. As expected, they are now completely askew.)

    Optician: “Oh, um, let’s fix those.”

    (10 minutes later, they look good again.)  

    Optician: “All set!”

    Me: “Can I have that soft case, please?”

    Optician: “Don’t you want the protective hard one?”

    Me: “No. Remember how they don’t fit in there?”

    Optician: “Um, okay, if you’re sure…” *hands me a soft case* ”Anything else I can help you with?”

    Me: “No. Please don’t help me any more.”
