Pet Peeve of the Week: The Excessive Use of Sunglasses
I was recently thinking of things that bother me most. Guys trying to be tough while driving a VW Bug (especially the new ones), year round sandal wearers, guys wearing tucked in shirts with no belt, guys who wear pink shirts (sorry Chris), ect. All take a back seat to a far worse crime; the excessive sunglasses wearer. They wear them indoors, at night, at weddings, in church, for job interviews, whenever they get the chance to show off how totally cool and hip they are. Why does this bother me? I'm not sure, but it really does. I see people come into church with sunglasses on the top of the head or if they're extra cool they have them on the back of their head. And then for those who are out of this world awesome, on the back of their head AND upside down. So what, you think you're Tom Cruise? That don't impress me much. Or anyone for that matter. You just look completely stupid. Maybe it's the strutting and swagger like they're cock of the walk that bothers me so much. These idiots turn into peacocks when they have on their sunglasses. Do these people think they are movie stars? Like they're walking the red carpet where ever they go. I wonder if these delusional losers think they have paparazzo following them around and they are just trying to look totally awesome in case they turn up on Access Hollywood. "Going into Albertsons, better put on the ol' shades in case I need to sign some autographs." Yeah, people are looking. But it's not because everyone is impressed with your stylish fashion accessory, it's because you look like a moron. So unless you have a glass eye, are albino, Stevie Wonder, Jack Nicholson attending the Oscars, or are a vampire, keep your shaded specs in the car when entering buildings.
