Today's burning question from Redditor CuteAmbassador.

They asked:

"Dear Glasses-Wearers of reddit, what do people without glasses take for granted?"

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."

Revuul

"Walking in the cold..."

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

Zoesdog

"Not having to pay..."

"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?"

Pteuch

"Cooking."

Giphy

"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."

This is quite an eye-opening read!

We've all found ourselves annoyed by the ticks or habits of others.

Some of these are fairly common, such as chewing with your mouth open, cracking your knuckles, or whether or not they pronounce the "T" in often.

Some habits are a bit more unusual, though.

Only the people guilty of possessing these habits might not realize that they're unusual until they are told by someone else that practically no one, or literally no one, else does them.

It's an eye-opening, sometimes humiliating discovery.

My entire childhood was comprised of watching Hollywood movies about high school.

From High School Musical, I learned that theater is uncool and no jock would be caught dead in a musical. The Breakfast Club made me think Saturday detention wasn't so bad. I learned that teachers can be manipulated from Clueless, and Mean Girls showed me how divided high school kids are based on their cliques.

When I actually started high school, none of those lessons helped me. I knew several jocks who were talented musicians and starred in every musical. I never had Saturday detention, but I heard enough horror stories to know it was awful. Teachers are not fools who bend to a student's will, and cliques are almost a myth. Yes, the cheerleaders hang out with other cheerleaders, but they don't dump food all over the honors kids.

Very few high school movies reflect the actual high school experience. Redditors know this all to well and were ready to share their stories.

I love money.

If I had an endless supply, I might throw it away with abandon.

But I am not blessed with that level of abundance.

Some people really take spending to an extreme.

To a point where maybe others should be in charge of their purse and wallet.

What is wrong with people?

Have we lost all sense of decorum?

I get that people need to speak their minds, but there are some moments where silence is the better option.

When you're naked and intimate with someone, it's best to not be mean.

I would've thought that would be a given.

Unless they're mean or creepy than do what you must.

But when you're alone in bed with a partner, partners, whatever, can't we put our best foot forward?
