I ended up picking out a pair of cute regular glasses and some sunglasses just to see how much the total would be with my prescription and oh my lord, my debit card was quivering. I couldn't help but laugh. Also, she of course insisted I have all of these add-ons with my prescription that weren't absolutely necessary. She didn't even give me options and said that with MY prescription (which was a normal single-vision prescription) I needed to have all of these things added that of course inflated the price. The price for the two pairs was about $960. Yes you read right. No typo there. Oh and no, these glasses did not speak French either. I told her to then just tally up the total for only the sunglasses since I didn't have prescription sunglasses at all and she was quite taken aback when I didn't want both pairs. She then tried to push it even further saying that with MY prescription I should really get both pairs. At this point, I've had enough. If she even bothered to look at my prescription, she would have seen that it barely even changed and that I was told by the doctor that it wasn't vital that I get new glasses. I walked out of there sans either pair due to how pushy and awful this sales rep was. I simply did NOT want to give them my business because of how ridiculous she acted and was clearly just out for the commission.
I mean I'm sorry, for that price, why don't you just ask me to bend over a little further? I should have gone there before even buying the Groupon, but I'm willing to eat the $50 just so I don't have to deal with them again. It was such an exhausting and irritating ordeal, we walked over to Outback Steakhouse for some emergency martinis and had a great date night dinner.
For my regular glasses, yes I succumbed to the hipster-type glasses trend and got these Kenneth Cole Reaction frames. I totally love them. I sadly forgot to take photos prior to handing them over for my prescription to be added but they look like this:
