Bad day @ 01:58 pm

Payroll day, running behind (worse than usual), nothing seems to be going right. My glasses broke, I was just standing there talking to someone and pop a screw gave and the left lens fell out. Fixable, just needs a new screw, but I don't have any way to do that at work. Housekeeping lost a week's worth of rooms cleaned spreadsheets somehow, the 5th through 11th vanished. Their supervisor's working on reconstructing them from daily printouts.

ETA I managed a temporary fix on the glasses with a small sewing kit from housekeeping, the needle was small enough to get through the hole. Probably not as sturdy as the original screw, but hopefully it'll get me through the rest of the work day at least.

How bad is your vision? Being 20/800 in both eyes I kept a small repair kit (complete with extra screws) at work and my previous pair of glasses in my car's glovebox.

Not that I could have found my car without glasses...

Somewhere in the 20/400 range I think, nearsighed with astigmatism. Jake lost a screw from his glasses twice lately, we scavenged my last pair to fix his. I've managed a temporary fix with needle & thread, just have to be careful.
