Glass is expensive – why

This weekend Gene and I did a few tasks around the house, including finally hanging pictures. Along the way we discovered that a piece of glass for one of the frames had cracked in two places. So I took the frame to Michael’s today to look into getting the glass replaced.

After taking measurements, the woman at the frames counter told me the cheapest piece of glass I could get would cost me $68. The frame and glass that was originally bought didn’t even cost that much.

The frame just holds a poster I got in college. It is not worth it. Not worth $68.

Let me say it again.


I could not believe it.

I still cannot believe it.

And I will never spend $68 on a piece of glass.

Michael’s, I hate you.
