The internet can be wonderful, but for me, it’s becoming a bit like donuts – tempting but ultimately unsatisfying. And sometimes it makes me a bit queasy. I see expressions of guilt in the writing of others bloggers I follow when they can’t blog because of….life. Practicing non-technical writing has panned out well for me here, but I don’t want it to feel like yet another obligation.
Moving forward, this blog will be dedicated to my fiction, poetry, and art. I’ll also share information on friends’ businesses and other creative efforts. And I’ll be working on my other blog which is based on an idea my husband had for a book. I hope to work with him to turn it into a book too, in time.
But before I change my focus, I’d like to share that Lenscrafters “made good” with me after this post. Steve, the new regional manager, called me and was very nice. After a few calls, I agreed to have Lenscrafters make me a new pair of bifocals. I chose to go to the Cherry Creek Lenscrafters where the store manager, Cleo, took care of me. I picked out three frames I liked, and I peeked at the tags so I’d know if I was being steered to the cheapest choice. I was not. In the end, I ended up with a gorgeous pair of Prada frames and bifocal lenses I like so well that they are now my primary, rather than my back-up, pair.
Although I don’t think I’d go back to the Lenscrafters in the Colorado Mills Mall, I am extremely happy with these glasses. Cleo’s customer service skills made me want to ask her over for wine and pizza; she was that awesome. Steve was nice and I like the direction he’s taking the company. I would now definitely go back to Lenscrafters for frames…and to one or two locations for lenses. Hopefully, Steve will get the other locations aligned too and no one else will leave any store with ruined eyewear. All in all, a highly satisfactory ending to an unpleasant experience.
