I walked passed a Lenscrafters last week and thought I'd pop in to get my glasses tightened. Simple enough. A kindly twelve year old took my glasses for me (I assumed he worked there because of his badge, but was SHOCKED at how young he was. Or maybe I'm getting really old. Maybe I should report Lenscrafters to the City for their breach of child labor laws. Anyway I digress). He told me that before he adjusted my glasses I should know that "if anything happens while they are being adjusted, it is not Lenscrafters reponsibility".
Yes it fucking is. If I go into an store claiming to specialize in all things optical, and give them my glasses to adjust because they specialize in all things optical, and my glasses break or get cancer, ITS THEIR FAULT. Am I wrong? I don't think that just because before you do something you prefix it with "We are not responsible if X Y or Z happens" it should relinquish you of all responsibility. It's ludicrous. I argued this point for several minutes, realized the time and just thought hey, I feel like living dangerously today, I'll give them to the employee of the store that specializes in all things optical and hope for the best.
Grow a pair Lenscrafters. And everybody else who claims no responsibility when things that they do go wrong. If I have a brow lift (please darling hubby, may I?) and it gets fucked up it would only be MY FAULT if I had asked a cobbler to do it. Or a marine biologist. Surely if an accredited, qualified plastic surgeon does it, and I look more like Tom Brady than Giselle Bundchen, its his fault.
Don't blame me if this blog is shit. I only wrote it. It was YOU that was reading it.
