The woman who loved to try on wigs with her eyewear

True tales from the eyecare business

I’ll never forget the day a woman came in to the store to buy glasses. After trying on different pairs, she starts pulling out seven different wigs, all different styles and colors. She said whatever glasses she decided on had to work with all of her wigs. We spent the entire afternoon giggling and laughing. The wigs were on me and anybody else who came in that afternoon. She was one crazy lady who to this day still wears wigs whenever she comes in. The best part is that I told her wigs were like shoes and so are glasses. One just cannot work in every situation.
