I've had enough of this. Why is it that because you have glasses you are called names? I've been called a geek or a nerd my whole fucking life, no matter how I act, just because I have glasses. If I take them off, I can't even see what I'm typing, and the screen is about one and a half feet away. If my dad didn't think contacts were a 'waste of money', I wouldn't have a problem. I'm not bitching about how I look, I'm sick of what other people are saying about me. Kids I don't even know have insulted me. My dad also says that I should get the eye laser surgery. "The very minimum age is 18 for laser vision correction.". That's in five years. And once you have the surgery, there is a possiblity that your vision may return back to being worse over time, and you may require reading glasses. I find that it isn't worth it, I like to have things done and dealt with. I know everyone's going to say that I shouldn't be complaining, that it's life, and it is, but I'm angry now, so I'm posting anyway.

Well, you shouldn't be complaining, and that IS life.

But, next time someone makes fun of ya for your glasses, either;

A. Ignore them
B. Think of something really witty to say to put them in their place

Don't worry, you're 13 right? By the time you get to high school most people have matured enough to realize that making fun of someone because of their glasses is stupid and immature. I said "most" though.

Fuck them. If they have a problem with you over something as trivial as a pair of glasses, you should be laughing at them instead of the other way around.

The only problem is that in my grade nobody gives a shit what you say back. As long as you have glasses, it gives them an excuse to disregard whatever you say. But most of the time they say it when you're not around. Same thing goes for zoloft's post.

I wear glasses and nobody calls me anything. Maybe you do something that warrants you to be called a nerd. Even if someone does call me a nerd or a douchebag...it doesnt make me one so i dont give a fuck. You cant expect everything in life to rosy and shit....be a man and take it it like a man. If you're a girl....take it how a girl takes it. If your looking for universal popularity, expect to be dissapointed.

They make fun of you because they are small minded assholes looking for something to pick on about everyone.

If you're Tall is "Hey beanpole!"
Fat "Hey lardass"
Short "Hey smallfry"
ad nauseum

They will find something to pick on about you, it's what assholes do. On the plus side, anyone who does pick on you for glasses just saved you the time of getting to know them. You know all you'll need to about them.

I know what you're going through. I had it all. Glasses, braces, bad-hair, small, skinny. Then, I decided to take it upon myself to make me a better person. I studied my ass off, then I started to workout and stuff. I played around with my hair. By the time I lost my glasses and braces, I was a smokin hottie with a body that chicks wanted to date, AND I was hella smart. Those kids who picked on me and stuff, they're workin at Target or Wal-mart because all they did was fuck around and pick on kids while in school. If you need proof, look in my profile and you'll see my pic. I'm sexy. So, fuck what they said, and just concentrate on yourself, work hard and study and they'll be the ones asking you for a raise when you're their boss in the near future.

Fuck yea!

I wear glasses and the only time I caught heat for them past elementary school was when somebody called me 4 eyes last year. My friends and I made fun of him the rest of the year for such a juvenile insult. Try getting people without glasses to back you up.

What the hell? since when glasses-wearer got teased?
Anyway just ignore them. People will have to take back what they offer if you don't accept them.

Dude, I've had glasses since the 6th grade. My eyes aren't bad enough that I have to wear them all the time but I tend too just because it feels normal to have them on.

By the time you turn 18 (which any good optometrist will tell you is still a few years out from making you a good candidate for the lazer) half your school will be wearing corrective lenses.

perhaps you need new rims? The style of glasses you choose can be half the reason people are bashing you. Square small lenses are in. Mine are rectangular with floating lenses. (The lenses don't actually touch the frames on one end) and people like them.

Granted I'm 29 and not exactly small but by the time I was driving nobody said anything about glasses.

Hey Shine. I had the same problem back when I was 13. Motherfuckers thought glasses=nerd and that a bunch of "funny" jokes were in that equation. The best way to handle this is to be nice back. When they need help on homework help them.....But not for free of course. Find out who is the richest one find a way to help him/her first. After your help state your price for such skills.(It does work especially if they are really dumb) Next help a couple "jocks" out. State a trade. Your help for protection from others. Now unless they turn on ya you now have body guards and can expand your business. Seeing as it is mostly the same classes if I remember correctly you can just pretty much redo everything. Math classes are the easiest to rack up cash in.

Believe me if everything works out the money will make everything feel better.

I were glases now and then, got them when I was 14 or 15? Nobody has ever made fun of me 'cause of them but I don't were them all the time since i can see pretty good without them. But you're 13, they will stop when you and they get older, at that age you're still immature (I too am still immature, but, in other ways...) But if you really want to do something get contact lenses, I'd say that's a better option then get laser surgery, espcially since that isn't an option for the next 5 years.

I wear contacts, they're pretty good. Don't wear them on the weekends though, because it's a hassle taking them out, at least 5 minutes. FIVE WHOLE MINUTES.

You know what you do? People used to make fun of me because I was a complete idiot - as in I would do shit regardless of the consequence, or do stuff to make people laugh... Which in turn gave me a shitty rep - One day I found out that chemistry makes people uneasy. If you know a lot about explosives, or even just random chem formulas, and use them to your advantage whenever getting made fun of...

"Nice glasses, four eyed geek"
*pause, turn around* "Fuck you, retard." *pause a minute...* "Do you know what (A lot of things will work here, my favorites being Tri-Nitro-Phenol, or Potassium Nitrate) is?"

as they're 13, the answer will obviously be "uhh, no..."

"If you don't shut the fuck up you'll get to be very acquainted with it."

Use technical terms as much as possible... *shrug* Just look on the internet :p Its a wonderful place

Some people are giving very bad advice. Just get somebody without glasses to yell something at them, they'll probably leave you alone.
