The Prince's Pet Peeves: Backwards Sunglasses

This is a pet peeve that I didn't realize I had until it came and smacked me in the face this morning on my daily commute. I don't have a real problem with this like I do with criss-crossed bacon on my burgers, but by now you know me well enough to get the picture.

This is certainly not a good look. I don't think there are any girls out there putting this little thing on their "List" of guy traits. The only real purpose I think it serves is letting people see your expensive Oakley Blades even when its not all that sunny. It might also help guys remember where they put their glasses when they leave the apr├Ęs-softball binge-drinking session. The should still exercise caution though because the force from one too many high-fives might knock the glasses loose and then you are S.O.L., buddy.

But seriously, don't most pants and shorts come with pockets these days? Do most people's pockets just not work? I didn't think there were too many moving parts, so they shouldn't be breaking. Just put the sunglasses in there until the sun comes out from behind the clouds. It will save us all a lot of headaches.

Its not like I'm putting my eyeglasses on the back of my head when I don't need to see things.


  1. OMG, hate this! Anyone seen wearing backwards sunglasses should be given a hefty fine. OR perhaps placed in the stocks.

    backwards eyeglasses could become a new trend, though...

  2. Sometimes I hang them in the neck of my shirt... do you hate this, too?

  3. I hate people that wear their sunglasses indoors. I like to punch those people POW RIGHT IN THE KISSER. 2nd to that are peeps that have everything on the belt like Batman. Cmon Son!

  4. Sunglasses on the neck of the shirt looks cool depending on the sunglasses.

    I'm all over the backward eyeglass trend. People have called me a futurist.

    I can't stand people with a shitload of stuff on their utility belts. I especially hate the cell phone in the leather case clipped to the belt. That's the worst.

  5. I don't care for the molester transition glasses when someone is sorta in the sun, but sort of not. It's a light grey haze that comes over it, although I think if I had a full prescription, I'd be singing a different tune. Brian would hate Dad because he looks like a blind man indoors.

  6. I felt so bad for your dad that time at the theme park when it got dark and all he had was his prescription shades...

  7. And then he ran into that bench b/c he couldn't see...
