“I left the room with silent dignity but caught my foot in the mat”*

More than two weeks ago I had an eye test but was still waiting for my new glasses. As I was in town anyway, I called in at the opticians and they *were* ready although I hadn’t been told so. I sat around for ages (hate) while the new specs were fiddled with, then requested an adjustment to one of the arms. The young assistant took them away again and brought them back *broken*. Yup, she’d broken the frame. ‘Sorry’. Huh? Am I supposed to say, ‘Never mind, dear, accidents will happen.’? I’m afraid my stormy face came on and I huffed out of the shop. The effect was spoiled somewhat when I realised I’d left my umbrella behind and as I turned back for it met Miss Disaster waving it at me and beaming. So much for a dramatic exit.
