Other members have all offered excellent suggestions on how to remedy the problem....
Here’s the solutions cheapest to most expensive.
1. Buy new Shades
2. Repair broken shades
3. Buy 2 new shades ( just in case this happens again)
4. Buy x-metals- more durable and less likely to snap if stepped on again.
5. Get rid of wife....... by far most expensive unless you have a great attorney (see @beau1890 or @saltparrot )
