I wear my sunglasses at… day?

Yet another entry in the dumb things list…
On Friday, I managed to grab my prescription sunglasses while driving into work, but left my regular glasses at home. When I got to work and noticed, I figured that I’d just try and wear my sunglasses and grab my regular glasses over lunch.
Well, it turns out that polarized sunglasses and LCD monitors aren’t friends. If I turned my head 45 degrees to the right, everything went black. If I turned my head to the left, everything got brighter. Guess which way my head naturally goes when I’m thinking?
People tried to comfort me, saying things like “At least you looked cool”. No. No, I didn’t. I wouldn’t look cool if I was wearing a leather jacket, walking away from an exploding helicopter and carrying a katana.
