MetroCardEver felt the need for bifocals but didn’t actually have the lenses? No problem! You could simply use the solution I spotted on the Subway tonight! I was on my way home from work with a friend from the office. We were sitting on a Brooklyn-bound 3 train between 77th St and 42nd St and there was a woman across from us reading. That’s nothing at all unusual…many people, including me, read on the train. But then my friend said, “Wait…is she wearing two pairs of glasses??” I looked up and she really was wearing two pairs of glasses! She had a black pair closest to her fair and then a red pair directly in front of them!

Our best guess was that it was a makeshift pair(s) of bifocals!
