Buying "sunglasses"6

Today I went to a store where they have very beautiful glasses. I asked if they were sunglasses, and the man in the store said, “Yes.”

As soon as I put the first pair on, the man said, “Very nice, now you can read.”

I said, “I don’t need glasses to read.”

Then immediately my eyes started burning. I said, “They are very powerful. I don’t need these.”

The second pair also started giving me pain, so the man said, “You should go to an eye specialist.”

If they had been sunglasses, they would not have burned my eyes!
