Why would they sell you glasses with hairspray on them? Hahaha, I mean, certainly, you don't use hair spray and are dumb enough to blame them for your . . . oh. Do you want a cookie? I've been told we're supposed to be nice to you people and not use the R-word anymore.
If someone is truly retarded I'm not sure they would fully comprehend what retarded means/is.. So why bother.. New words will be created.
Okay well if you're conflicted on your stance for this campaign. Just consider this, would you go up to a baby and say "the devil is gonna come and eat you while you're sleeping." Now even if the baby doesn't understand it, you know your stance if you're okay with this or if you think it's just wrong. You're welcome, conflicted youth.
The acceptable term is "mentally retarded." And people get offended these days when you use the word "retarded" to describe someone or something that is not literally mentally retarded. And yes, many, perhaps even most, mentally retarded people understand what the word "retarded" means, and realize when people are making fun of them. There are many varieties of mental retardation, and some of them are actually almost normal, and you wouldn't notice that there is anything wrong with then until you spent some time with them. For example, I worked with a mentally retarded girl at a convenience store once. She could read and write and knew how to use the register and run the deli. She was just very immature for her age, and would sometimes throw tantrums and speak at an inappropriately loud volume when she got excited about something, and it was usually things hardly worth getting upset or excited about.
#90, also it causes us to bring back some of the venerable old words for stupid people that all seemed to get replaced by the R-word. Welcome back, Moron, Idiot, Dolt, Imbecile, Dunce, Oaf, Fool, Dumb-ass, Mouth-Breathing, Knuckle-Dragger. (I did that all without consulting a thesaurus. Feel free to add more,. . ., you dunces ;) )
86, No she didn't have aspbergers or any other form of autism. She didn't have trouble socializing with people. She was actually quite friendly. She definitely had below average intelligence, though. It simply wasn't immediately apparent. 93, I didn't realize they'd stopped using the term "mentally retarded" in professional circles. I just thought it was considered offensive when the word "mentally" was dropped. Learn something new everyday, I guess.
@86 That's kind of what I was thinking too; the girl sounds more like she had a mild/high-functioning form of autism. I might very well be a little autistic (high-functioning/Aspergers) and seem to be fairly "normal" but I'm emotionally immature and get upset/frustrated easily. I also don't always know how to behave and get confused easily.
Wipe it of with a cotton wipe dipped in rubbing alcohol, then rinse it with soap and water. Use a soft cloth and be careful not to scratch the lense. And don't expect the store to give you a new pair for something stupid you did.
As someone who works in the industry, that may not work. The coatings they put over most lenses can actually be rather sensitive and if the product is left on the lenses there is a chance for permanent damage/spots. Definitely give it a try. Its best to apply hairspray without your glasses because it can ruin plastic on a frame.The best thing I've seen: a man tried to use industrial stove cleaner on his glasses.
Maybe contacts would be a better fit for you. Unless you get hair spray on them. On a side note, when you get new glasses, they give you spray and sometimes a nice little towel. Use them. Works for your TV too, in case you were thinking of bringing that back due to spots as well.
