It’s always annoying when…

I’m sitting here and I can’t help but notice that there’s a spot on one of the lenses of my reading glasses. So I take them off and polish it up using the satin cloth that came with the glasses and put them back on, but that damned spot is still there. I take them off again and try breathing on the lense to fog it up a bit and take the cloth to it again. Yet the damned spot persists. Third time’s the charm, right? Especially when I take them off and go over to the eyeglass cleaning thingy the company has thoughtfully provided nearby and use the liquid cleaner and the lint free paper wipes to give both lenses a good rubbing. I go back to my desk and put them back on and — what the fuck? — the spot is still there!

That’s when I realize I’m seeing a reflection of part of my own eye thanks to the overhead fluorescent light fixture above and directly behind my head. Fuuuuuuuccckkkkkkk…
