If we had a rupee for every time someone made a lame remark about our glasses, we’d be chilling on a beach in the Bahamas. Newsflash: People wearing glasses aren’t nerds. And they definitely don’t want you waving your grubby fingers at them when they take off their spectacles for a split second. So the next time you see someone with soda-bottle-thick lenses, bite down the urge to say this: 

1) “You know you’d look so pretty if you’d try to wear contacts.”

2) *Sees you without glasses for all of 2 seconds* “Quick, tell me how many fingers am I holding up?”

3) “So do you actually have a prescription to wear these, or do you wear them just to look smart?”

4) “Can I try them on?”

5) *After trying them on* “OMG! You’re practically blind!”

6) “You’re so lucky. You don’t have to bother much with eye make-up.”
