"Dear Glasses-Wearers of reddit, what do people without glasses take for granted?" –– This was today's burning question from Redditor CuteAmbassador, and it's an interesting one because it's true! People who don't wear glasses really don't know how annoying it is to not be able to see properly. I can confirm: I wore glasses for 20 years and am now enjoying life as a member of the seeing populace. It's pretty stellar and is, more than anything, a great relief.


"Laying on the couch..."

Laying on the couch to watch tv without smashing glasses into your face.

"The fact that..."

The fact that when you wear glasses, you have two looks: with glasses, or without. If She's All That taught us anything, it's that the glasses are holding you back and as soon as you take them off and let your hair down you will immediately be transformed into the erotic goddess who was lurking inside you all along. Yeah, not so much.

There's occasionally that moment at the start of a relationship when they see you without your glasses on for the first time and realise that, rather than finding 1990s Rachael Leigh Cook under those lenses, they've actually shacked up with a squinty little mole-woman who's now pissed off she can't see anything.

"Not having..."

Not having your vision obscured by fog when going from a very cold to a very warm environment.

Condensation forms on your lenses and, in humid areas, can be really fucking annoying.

"Being able..."

Being able to watch your haircuts progress.

"Walking in the cold..."

Walking in the cold with their face covered and still being able to see.

Not having to pay to see.

"You don't need your glasses..."

You don't need your glasses to find your glasses when you lose your glasses. You may think Velma is funny with the "Oh no, my glasses" bit but it is so true.

"Not needing to..."

Not needing to wipe a piece of glass every few hours. Like how the hell do glasses get stains so quickly?

"Cooking."

Cooking -- checking a boiling pot to see how the noodles are softening up without steam covering my glasses and blocking my view.

"Swimming..."

Swimming and being able to see literally anything.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:

"What life event or experience changed your perspective?"

I've seen enough end-of-the-world movies to know that when the end does come that The Rock will not be there to save my lazy self from impending doom.

Life isn't like the movies, sad to say. The relationship humans have to the world is remarkably unhealthy, and as we continue to reckon with the consequences of big business running the world, exploiting resources, and pushing us ever further toward climate catastrophe—

*takes a deep breath*

Sorry, got a bit carried away there... the anxiety is real.

I promise there are some more humorous answers sprinkled in this article, thanks to the efforts of Redditor User34884, who asked the online community:

"What will cause the fall of Western civilization?"
