No Respect!

People just look right through me.

I don't understand. People are always calling me a pane. Just what have I done to deserve such disrespect? I let in the light while blocking the wind and cold. I can enhance a room's beauty while protecting people from storms. So, what is it that has garnered me this moniker? I know people don't enjoy cleaning me but is getting dirty my fault?

It's all about respect. Those of us that quietly go along doing our jobs are invisible, which is what I'm supposed to be. It's a pain being a pane.
