So, my glasses broke. The little plastic thing which props on your nose snapped. The metal leg was intact, which is good, because it's irreparable. I had wonky glasses for nearly 2 days. I went to the shop today and showed them my broken specs:
Ashley: Look - the nubbin has come off. That's the technical term for it, you know.
Shop lady: Right - I'll replace it for you.
Ashley: Ah good - it's nice that you have a new stock of these nubbins.
Shop lady: Here you go - here are your glasses with new... er... nubbins.
And so, I've invented a new term. It will spread like wildfire, I'm sure of it!
The glasses now fit better and the lady even cleaned them. Quite good aftersales services, really.
