I don't think they were "cheaters" (reading glasses) and, I'd be willing to bet you that he has not seen the eye doctor to have the 'scrip changed in a very long time. Maybe he did himself a favor by leaving them there? They were all twisted with one of the nose pieces broken off. Don't know what they looked like before they got smushed under the hood. If he had thought to just hand them to me while he installed my battery, we wouldn't have all of this drama.
