17 Things People Who Don't Need Glasses Will Never Understand

HELP WHICH STREET AM I ON.

Posted on

Forgetting your glasses when you need them is basically like forgetting one of your limbs at home.

Whether you forgot them because you're new to wearing glasses, you don't need to wear them all the time, or you're just super disorganized — we can all probably relate to this struggle.

Whether you forgot them because you're new to wearing glasses, you don't need to wear them all the time, or you're just super disorganized — we can all probably relate to this struggle.

1. First comes the sudden and dreadfully familiar realization that you definitely left the house without your specs.

2. You take another look at the blurry world around you and realize you would 100% be the first one to die in a zombie apocalypse movie.

3. After a few long minutes of internal conflict, you decide you'd rather be visually impaired than late.

4. You have to stand two inches away from street signs to read them, or else they look like hieroglyphics in a 3-year-old's handwriting.

5. And when you get in the car — actually, please don't get in the car. Get out. Call an Uber. Ride your bike. Ride a Razor scooter. Ride a manatee (but not actually). Just don't drive — you are literally a road hazard.

6. When you get to school or work, you suddenly realize all people are just...shapes.

7. Or maybe everything looks like a stock photo series where only one person in the foreground is in focus and everything else is severely blurred.

8. You keep walking into the wrong rooms, or even the wrong buildings.

9. And everyone's face just starts to look like a damn Picasso portrait.

10. You act like you know what someone is presenting, but you're actually lost AF because the writing still looks like toddler hieroglyphics.

11. And you can feel people judging you for leaning forward excessively, but it's not like you're gonna sit on the floor.

12. You can't see own your facial expression, but you know you probably look like this cat about to sneeze.

13. Your only wish in life is for someone to bring you sweet relief in the form of an oblong case, but you know it won't happen.

14. You might try on glasses that belong to a friend who claims they have the "same prescription" as you, only to find out they really have 50 shades of astigmatism and their lenses make you legally blind.

15. You consider going home early because this newfound blurry world is just too nebulous and difficult to handle.

16. After a day of squinting and straining your eyes, it feels like an actual miracle that you made it home.

17. When you spot those precious glasses right on the bathroom counter where you left them...pure joy.

And you feel like a damn superhuman with X-ray vision again.
