The proprietor of a successful optical shop was
instructing his son on how to charge a customer.

“After you have fitted the customer’s glasses,” he
said, “and he asks you what the charge will be,
you say, ‘$200.’ Then see if he winces.

“If the customer doesn’t wince you say, ‘For the frames.
The lenses will be another $200.’

“If he still doesn’t wince, you say firmly, ‘Each.'”

  2. Glasses are expensive aren’t they? The frame is just some thin pieces of alloy/metal and the lens glass….not silver, gold or diamond (though that would make them very heavy) 😛

    actually, almost no glasses these days have glass lenses – they’re plastic.
