I had to go to the eye doctor today because one of my contact lenses ripped (and I'm way overdue for an appointment and out of contacts). I have an astigmatism--but don't worry, it's not my fault; I didn't do anything to cause that, it's just the way that God made me.
The eye doctor actually said those exact words. It's a good thing I was too blind to see his face because I think I would have laughed and he was being very serious. I just nodded and stared straight ahead.
He was also amazed with my decision making skills. You're so sure of yourself! So confident in your answers! The best decision-maker I've had in quite a while, you must always end up with perfect prescriptions.
Well...thank you. I do usually end up with contacts I can see out of, so I guess I do pretty well.
No really, you're excellent at this. People are never this sure.
We ended up doing it 3 different times with 2 different machines.
Which looks better: 1 or 2? 3 or 4? 3 or 5? 3 or 6? 7 or 8? Amazing. Now let's do it with this hand held machine, too. I hope you don't mind me taking up your time, it's just that I'm a perfectionist and I want this to be right for you. I want it to be perfect for you, like crystal-clear perfect.
So he was nice and it was fun, if not a little awkward. I am annoyed with God for creating me in a way that hinders my ability to go home with contacts that day vs. waiting for them to be ordered. They gave me sample contacts to get me through, but they aren't the perfect, special crystal clear prescription that we worked so hard together for.
While I was paying, I set my glasses next to my purse because I was thinking, "I better not just throw my glasses into my purse and then they'll see how I abuse my glasses and try to force me to buy a case or new glasses or something else" because it's a factory-type of eye doctor place where they up sell everything. And then when I got home, I realized I didn't have my glasses.
When I called them to tell them that I left my glasses, she very matter-of-factly said, "Oh, they aren't here!"
So among thousands of pairs of glasses, you can state with absolute certainty that the ones I've left there are not there? I told her they were there and asked if she could take my name and number for when they turned up. This seemed hugely inconvenient to her.
I am afraid that my glasses will be lost among the sea of glasses and/or that the very people who want me NOT to have glasses (so that I have to buy theirs) now have my glasses.
So much for me and my excellent decision making!
