Back when I worked at Walmart, I overheard the following conversation:
A guy wants to buy contacts but doesn’t have his Rx on him and his doctor is in another state. Walmart optician explains the Rx can be faxed to us since we need the written Rx and not just the contact boxes.
Optician: Was the exam done at a Walmart?
Guy: No, it was at an actual eye doctor.

Opt School or a house?
Electricians make more cash.
Too late to drive truck?
As a mid-career optometrist still 20 years from any kind of retirement, I often wonder if I made the right decision. I’ve had to do some electrical work on my 1960 house (because that’s the kind of house an optometrist can afford) and really enjoyed it. Also I really like driving, so I probably should have been a trucking electrician or an electrical trucker.
