An excuse not to buy cheap sunglasses

Looking good
To be cheap or not cheap

The other day I was waiting to receive my flu shot at Albertsons.  Next to me was a rack of sunglasses, so I took a look.  A $17.99 pair by Foster Grant caught my eye.  I thought, what a great deal.

Foster Grant label
I patted myself on the back, thinking I'm such a smart guy, buying a cheap pair of sunglasses. Let all those other people spend $50 or more on a pair.

Broken dreams of savings
Unfortunately there is a reason the Foster Grant sunglasses were so cheap, it's because they are cheaply made.  Not two days later the frames broke for no reason.  I assume the tensile strength of the plastic is substandard.

Therefore, next time you are in the market for a pair of sunglasses, and need an excuse to get the Oakleys or Tifosis, which by the way come with three lenses, think of me and spend the extra money.

  2. I'm just glad they broke, because they're hideous.
