Optician says, “I can adjust them, but they are not the glasses I sold you.”

Man gets a little huffy and says, “They sure are!”

Optician: “They are lavender and are a ladies frame.”

Man: “Honey, come over here.”

His wife comes over and she has his glasses on!

They switch frames, and all the world is happy — and the roads safer!

Not So Fast ...

Finish for the day, pack up my stuff, put my coat on, and walk out the door. On my way out, wave goodbye to staff and a patient in the optical. Get outside. Realize said patient I just waved goodbye to is dilating, and her exam isn’t actually done. Put stuff in car. Walk back inside.
