I Hate Spending Money On Sunglasses

Every time we need a new pair of sunglasses, it annoys me.  Instantly. It seems that someone is needing a pair all the time.

We generally buy pretty cheap sunglasses.  So, you can tell me that we get what we pay for, and I’m not going to argue, but it’s still dreadfully annoying when you are faced with:

  • A screw falling out of them for no apparent reason meaning that something is likely ready to fall off.
  • The pads that cover the thingies that rest on the bridge of your nose start falling to pieces, leaving exposed metal.  Which hurts.
  • The top of the glasses just randomly develops a crack, meaning that of the lenses is able to pop loose.

These are all things that have happened to sunglasses owned by either me or my wife, just this summer alone!

We were outside on a particularly nice afternoon.  Little Boy Beagle was pushing his bike around the driveway (not a fan of riding on it just yet, but pushing it is great loads of fun).  His shoes needed adjusting so I took my sunglasses off to get a better look.

I put them on the ground.  No, that’s silly.  He’d run them right over with his bike or step on them or something.  So, the next logical place is the bumper of the car that’s sitting in the garage.

But only for a second, right?
