Does anyone else think stepkids get a ridiculous amount biokids never would?
OK, maybe this is a rhetorical question, but ugh.
I got new glasses a while back and got a pair of frames that was essentially covered by my insurance plus did NOT get the anti-reflective coating because of the cost.
Lo and behold I come across a receipt dated this month where SD19 got new glasses, total cost, wait for it ... nearly $400. This included $70 per lens plus $80 for reflective coating and nearly $200 for the frames.
WTH?! I would NOT do that with my two bios. I would tell them to pick a reasonably priced frame (no more than $100) AND I would not get the coating. I know you can get glasses for half this (if not less) at Walmart, and so does DH.
WHY, WHY, WHY do stepkids always have to have MORE? And WHY do guilty parents always give it to them?!
