If you are part of the four-eyes club, you know that it can be a total pain in the butt to wear your glasses. They fog up, they slide down your nose, and let's not forget the how awful it is when you get mascara on the lenses!
Even though they can be a pain, they do have their perks (apart from the whole helping you see thing, duh)
1. They make you look, like, smart
3. They sort of double as safety goggles
Two words: flying shrapnel. So you're walking down the street just minding your own business, maybe drinking a nice, over-priced latte (non-fat soy) when suddenly... BAM! Someone on a bike just drove through a giant puddle and splashes a tub-sized amount of dirt and gross city water into your face! Had you not been wearing your glasses, you could have been blinded by the piece of glass that flew up and hit you in the face. Your glasses just saved your life! Okay, so maybe that's a little far-fetched, but you do at least have your very own, mildly effective safety goggles. Perfect for windy days and clipping your toe nails!
4. They're the perfect excuse for ignorance
When you wear your glasses regularly, you can use the "oh my gosh, I wasn't wearing my glasses, I'm so sorry!" excuse when you blatantly ignore someone you don't particularly like who was waving to you from across the street (and then proceeded to chase you down to say hi).
5. You save more money so you can buy other stuff
