Too Cool For School

November 19, 2008 7:00 am

The glasses debacle of 2008 is still in full swing. I picked up my prescription glasses, got dizzy as all hell, saw the eye doctor again, got the prescription remade and finally picked up the second pair this week. The problem? Still dizzy as all hell. They’re better, but I have to really strain to use them and they give me a worse headache than if I don’t use them at all. I’m planning on taking them back this week and demanding a refund. It’s bullshit that I paid almost $300 for glasses (my insurance covered roughly half) that make my eyesight worse so I’ll take my money and go elsewhere. I’m a very patient and reasonable person but this place is making me angry and I want to be done with them for good.

After taking the majority of two weekends ago off from the computer, I had a lot of catching up to do when I returned. The night after my visiting SIL left town, I put the kids to bed and sat my happy ass down at the computer to catch up on some reading. A few short minutes later, my head was throbbing and my eyes felt bruised. I deduced that my computer screen was too bright (the brightness had already been lowered to a readable level) and reached for a pair of sunglasses. Seriously. I sat at my desk for a few hours wearing my super cool Dollar Store shades and my eyes felt great! Jamie, however, didn’t feel great about the situation. He told me that I looked ridiculous and that he couldn’t take me seriously with sunglasses on. I laughed at him and continued wearing them. He loves poking fun of his loving wife so why not give him an easy target?

The next night, Jamie was sitting on the couch playing around with the laptop. I, for once, was sitting on the other couch NOT blogging. Jamie looked over at me and said “oh look at me, I’m Casey, I’m posting on my blog. Blah blah blah. I’m part of Club HASAY, oh, so and so just left a funny comment, blah blah blah,” while he pretended to vehemently click away on the keyboard. Of course, he looked nothing like me. He wasn’t wearing his cool shades OR eating a cheeseburger. What an ameteur.

    And I even read the post before I claimed.
    Hey, just tell Jamie that you are joining an elite group of way too cool people. Like Ray Charles.

    Except alive.

    Oh, Jamie? You should meet John. He does the same thing. You guys can mock us together while we plan our next posts which involve throwing you under the blogging bus.

    I find myself wearing sunglasses when I drive at night. So scary, but the change from streetlights to nothing gives me a headache too. Hope you get the whole thing worked out soon!!

    Well I give Jamie props for actually making fun of you to your face. Lennie just asks me to do stuff the moment I sit down to the computer. “Hey read this article.” ,”Want to watch a movie?” ,”Come over here and sit by me.” The passive agressive bastard. 😉

    Seriously an amateur!! My glasses make me dizzy too, but the eye doctor told me it was just because I was used to wearing contacts and your eyes focus differently when you have glasses on, or something like that. So are you telling me that you can actually get glasses that do NOT make you dizzy? If you’re telling me that’s the case I’m going to be so mad! I was duped! Now who’s the amateur?

    I bought the expensive prescription glasses too. Then decided the 19.99 ones from Target work better. Figures.

    My husband likes to act shocked when I talk to him now. He’s all “What? Me? You are talking to me and not a bloggy friend??” Smart ass.

    GRRR! That’s so frustrating! I’ve had a hard time finding a good eye doctor so I just went with the Walmart Optical. They’re nothing fancy but they get the job done.

  13. jen

    i would have remarked, “well at least i have friends.” to which my husband would have laughed uncontrollably. (but he doesn’t have many friends so, plhbblt. – that was my tongue noise).
    and what were you doing SITTING on the couch woman??
    you should have been doing sit-ups or something!

    cheeseburger, shame shame…what am I talking about I had a no-bake-em. My hubby brings up stuff I blog about, he reads it at work and corrects me if I’m wrong. Of course I don’t change it and he can just live with my mistakes.

    When my hubby makes fun of me… I make fun right back. We try to one up each other, laughing the entire time. Usually he runs out of stuff before I do….

    Love the shades.

    I heart Jamie so much right now. He better be careful who he mocks. Not only do you look rad in your terminator glasses, but soon, you’l be stronger and faster and you’ll just kick his ass. I so want to hang out with you guys. I also still really want to use your bathroom.

    Big K always looks so sad when I’m blogging. But, it’s an addiction that he can deal with. At least I don’t bring my laptop to bed…yet.

    Okay, that’s just hilarious. Jamie gets props for mocking you on the computer, I love his passive/aggressive method of telling you you’re a blogging junkie.

    Once again, I have to ask, why on earth do you need glasses if you’re eye sight is fine? Why would they sell you eye glasses that make your vision worse? Are you on Candid Camera or something? Does anyone even remember Candid Camera? A’ight, I’m done.

    You know you can always find the best line of shades at the Dollar Store and as far as Jamie – just wait till he gets old – you will have so much to get him back with – especially when the muscles start to lose their hold, LOL!!! Hhahaha payback is a bitch!
