@werehatrack I recently retired. I had an MSA benefit with money left in it and it was a use-it-or-lose-it situation, so I splurged on my first-ever pair of prescription sunglasses. Name brand frames, polarized, etc. - $300+. I am putting them to good use this summer as I enjoy reading outside and the new shades make it much more pleasant.
I just recently saw this story about a woman stealing someone’s shower shoes at a water park.
I was surprised to see that Gucci is selling $290 flip flops, that someone is buying them, and that apparently people recognize and covet them.
What could possibly be so fantastic about them that my $5 pair wouldn’t have?
I get that people like the fancy shit with the names. When it comes to sunglasses, I’d prefer something $10 or less. My current pair is swag from a company event (and I’m pretty sure that they cost a couple bucks each). I’ve actually bought (and am using regularly) those blue-blocker readers y’all been selling. Sell something decent at about $10 and I’m in. I’m also willing to wear those tacky sunglasses that fit over my prescriptions (not the flips, the big boxy ones), because I care more about the functionality than if you think I’m stylin’. Please sell that stuff.
