    I don't have glasses, but the other day, while chatting on my cell phone, I spent half an hour frantically searching for my cell phone. My girlfriend was on the couch laughing the entire time.

    But that's completety normal, i don't use glasses, but it is of my knowledge that people who do use glasses can even HEAR worse without them.

    It's a psychological thing.

    More than once I've put my contacts on and then thought, "Okay I'm done fiddling with my eyes, I can put my glasses back on."

    (I wore glasses for 38 years before getting contacts, so shut up.)

    My favorite, since I switch between my glasses and contacts for a couple weeks at a time...

    Walking into a building and attempting to remove my glasses as if they're sunglasses.

    Now that I have transition lens, it's even worse...

    xD I've only had glasses for a few months, and so when I forget to put them on in the morning, I wonder why my eyesight has turned bad again[short sighted] It usually takes me half an hour to figure out why...
    Other times I try to push my glasses up when I'm in bed and they're right beside on my bedside table in clear view...

    Sometimes, I look for my glasses when I am wearing. I also hate it after a shower or bath - I can't remember where I put them and then spend 20 mins running around trying to find them. :(

    I'll do this several times in a row before realizing I'm not wearing them. Then I'll go into a panic thinking Iost them, until I realize I just took them off.

  • Masami
    13 May '11

    I did that all the time. I hav had glasses since I was in 5th grade and now I'm 21. But I had gotten contacts in my senior year of highschool and it took me a really long time to get rid of the push up glasses habit. Now I forget I'm wearing glasses sometimes and I adjust my whole head to see through them... It looks so dumb haha

  • Charlotte

    27 Oct '11

    I do this - I have worn glasses since I was 18 months old - they used to tie into my hair so I couldnt take them off. I have a relatively new habit that my boyfriend finds slightly embarressing - I push up my glasses with my shoulder - the no hands approach. It does kind of look like I am wiping my nose on my shoulder/have a wierd nervous tick. I dont do it too often... Oh and also poke myself in eye to check they are on. I wonder why glasses ever got associated with geekiness??

  • MaKezzen

    *makes several terrible calls before realising that the glasses are still on that hook on the wall*

    Lol I relate so much to this series :3 so many convos have happened word for word! Recently my fiance got glasses and finally acknowledged that he was being rough with me (ex. Hugging my head and bending the frames...... many many times). Keep up the comics :)

    That horrible comment by asshat Mcfakerson needs to be removed. Such a jerk- bringing me down :(
