A simple repair sometimes can be more meaningful when the damaged item is a symbol of your past, your present and in my case, my future. I too had a pair of glasses fixed by the best eye glass repair shop in the metro LA metro region: Paul Gross Eyeglass Repair in Glendale, CA (yelp reviews)
Below is the comment I left on his post summing up how my life changed with that eyeglass repair. Okay maybe Paul Gross the person didn't directly change my life with that one business transaction but I do believe it played a role in my future
I'm so glad you wrote about Paul Gross Eyeglass Repair!!!For the backstory read the following posts:
There was a point when I was so poor that when my only pair of glasses broke I didn't think I could afford to get them fixed (My prescription is extremely mild, mostly to make night driving easier). So I went without for 2 years until I was looking for a job and knew emotionally that I would feel better (interview better) with glasses whatever the cost. Found Paul Gross and just like you within an hour and only $20 later I had my glasses again.
My jaw dropped in relief at that price. I would've thrown more money at him and honestly cried after I left his shop. Seriously so happy.
Then I meet the girl of my dreams a week later who moved from Michigan to LA for me - She loved how I pushed my glasses up with my finger during our first conversation. Then I landed a great job a few weeks later.
This is all true. Thank you Paul Gross.
