I can’t see not having glasses. I sent the following missive to my sister, who has problems with defective(?) contact lenses:
I sure would consider glasses, or at least have some for backup. Studies show that people who wear glasses are treated better by employers and get better grades in school.
They are also good for communication: For example:
A. You are in a meeting – You can take them off dramatically and say something like, “Dammit, Edna, your overtime rules are jeopardizing the safety of this hospital!”. Be sure to practice this move first, it would not be good to accidentally fling your glasses across the room.
B. Showing contempt by looking at someone over the top of the frame.
C. Flirting – you can take them off and thoughtfully gnaw on them while staring up into some dude’s eyes. This is probably why Ed doesn’t want you to get glasses.
D. You can take them off and dramatically rub your eyes to signify that it’s been a long day and you have had it with this person’s BS. Mrs. Pinchon on “Lou Grant” used to do this in almost every episode.
I’m sure there are others but now my eyes are already getting tired. I don’t even have defective contacts, I have to envy yours.
