NEWS FEBRUARY 2013: A PUBLIC APOLOGY. Our lawyers have advised we, SCOOGLE, must unreservedly apologise to Scoogle clients and potential clients for the ongoing harassment stemming from the purchase and wearing of our glasses.It has come to our attention that a number of you have been approached by complete random strangers in the street, in a pub, on a train, at work or in a cafe and given compliments. YES COMPLIMENTS!!! Apparently our eyewear and more importantly, the act of finding a frame and lens combination pairing to best suit your lifestyle, has resulted in too many compliments being dished out by strangers. As a result Scoogle customers have been known to suffer from bouts of Laughter, unreserved SMILES and even the sensation of 'Walking on Air/Sunshine'. (results may vary depending on musical and movie tastes). We would like to reassure these 'sensations' are beneficial, but sadly there is no cure - as Scoogle frames are not bound by seasonal fads or fashions. For that we are unapologetic and we'll take the full-force of the law on our collective chins.We look forward to future public apologies.Many Smiling Regards, The Scoogle Team.
