How to buy sunglasses, the BlaRo way:
- Drive to your local mall. Spend 6 hours trying to find a parking space closest to Lord and Taylor's, only to be beaten out by some damn frat boy in his '94 Eagle Talon blasting Lil Wayne. Park on the other side of the movie theater, farthest away from the entrance. Go on, you need the exercise anyway.
- Wander around the corridors, dodging moms with strollers and wiggers and their ugly-ass girlfriends, past the pounding annoying music at Abercrombie and past the nasal offensiveness of Hollister/the food court/Forever 21.
- Find your local friendly cheap sunglass kiosk. (NOT Sunglass Hut.)
- Plonk down $10.75 for a pair of "Compare to GUCCI" shades, the kind with "HECHO EN CHINE" plastered on the arms that say "POLORISED".
- Buy the optional "leather" baggie with the drawstring clasp that will fall apart after 3 hours bouncing around your pocket anyway, if you don't lose it first. The spiky-haired Asian kid working the stand needs your money anyway.
- Put them on and pretend to be Agent Smith.
- Lose them.
The most I ever paid for a pair of sunglasses was 21 bucks, from an airline catalog that I carried through China for 3 months with the intention of mailing it in when I got back to the States. I lost them after 4 months.
I just keep 2-3 pairs of cheap polarized gas-station aviators in my car at all times. Sometimes I'll go get some decent nose pads for them at the optometrist if they really suck.It seems people generally here don't give a crap about their sunglasses. I figured people who drive as much as us would be more into it.
:lol: Nice. But I'd rather have that than frat boys driving 4x4 F250s listening to Kenny Chesney or some other terrible country shit. Seriously, I'll have to take a picture of the 'Farm House' parking lot for you guys sometime. Every one of those guys needlessly drives a huge pickup.BlaRo said:Drive to your local mall.

Not me. I forked out $250 for a pair of Ray Bans the other month, replacing my old Oakleys ($160) which disappeared. They later turned up (I almost wish they hadn't) and I use them as a spare pair. Of course that doesn't mean I'm any more careful with my sunnies than you guys...
