The Magnificent Magnifying Glass

Well that’s just kinda badass. Way to accept your vision problems in style. Sure you could just get better glasses, but last time I checked you can’t burn a bunch of ants with glasses.

    This is not funny or should even be on this site. Some eye problems cannot be corrected with glasses. Shame on you for making fun of this person. Would it have been posted if it were a 3-5 yr old?

    There are some eye diseases that cannot be corrected with surgery, and some eyeglass prescriptions are just not strong enough.
    This picture should not be on here.

    Totally not fair. If you can’t see to read labels then you do what you have to. Making fun of people for their disabilities is totally not cool.

    Hmmmm… ok, not funny. I’m gonna guess she has vision problems that cannot be corrected with prescription glasses. What next, we poke fun at an amputee?

    I wear glass, and believe me, some of that fine pint *needs* a magnifying glass. And done of purpose, I’m sure.

    I don’t wear reading glasses when I’m driving or most times I’m walking around. I often wish I had a magnifying glass to read the small print on things. This geezer found a monster to carry around but that’s me too.

    IMHO, you are a little out of line here. She is obviously on a fixed income and probably cannot afford new stronger lenses. Let’s see what you do when you are old and everything looks cloudy and blurred to you.

    This should not be on POW. Obviously this person has an eyesight problem and needs an aid to read the labels. Its possible they are wearing glasses or probable that they can’t afford new glasses. This person didn’t choose their situation unlike like the majority of the people posted on this website.

    Not what I would call funny. Them needing help seeing labels, doesn’t put them in the “500lb woman wearing a size 5″ department.

    I’m not sure what to make of this. This woman appears to be appropriately clothed. She is using a magnifying glass to read a label, but I am not sure how that could be considered funny or even embarrassing for her.

    This is a disability and not at all funny. My grandmother always carried a magnifying glass because diabetes had affected her vision to the point where it was her only option.

    Ever seem some of the labels on some products (like pill bottles)? Even people without eye diseases or glasses would need a magnifier. I work in an IT department and the serial numbers on some computers and peripherals are ridiculously small. I’d like to get the idiot who designed the labels to follow me around when we do any inventory and make him/her read the type (without a magnifier)…and enjoy the eyestrain.

    Shame! Shame! Shame! This senior citizen has a disability. She is obviously trying to check out the ingredients on the label. Maybe she has allergies or heart failure. Her photo should not be on this site. Didn’t anyone teach you not to make fun of others with a handicap or a disability?

    I think this is the cutest thing ever. I wouldn’t make fun of her at all. My dad refuses to go to the eye doctor even though he has the most amazing insurance ever, He uses reading glasses from Walmart and a magnifying glass to read the newspaper.

    And for the record people I don’t think anyone is making fun of her, I think the funny thing about the picture is that has got to be the biggest damn magnifying glass on the planet. the fact that she carries it around in her purse reminds people of inspector gadget. Its actually a cute picture and refreshing NOT to see someone’s ass crack for a change!

    I know this is a website of Funny Pictures at WalMart, in this case, the picture is more cute than funny. My first thought about this picture was Sherlock Holmes’ mom. The picture brought a smile to my face. The picture is showing someone taking an unconventional solution to a problem. Maybe this person is on a fixed income and cannot afford glasses or does have an eye condition and can’t get it corrected. I am happy that the picture was posted and hope no offense was taken.
    We are all going to be old someday. I just got my first reading glasses, +1.00 diopters, three pairs for 10 dollars on Amazon. I’m not proud, but also not ready to take them shopping to read labels.

  26. Pissed off Billy

    Me Mother has Macular Degeneration and has lost about 75% of her vision.. once a month she gets the pleasure of going to the eye.dr, so he can stick a two inch needle into her eyeball, which she says “BURNS LIKE FUCKING HELL!” (her words, not mine) and it don’t help a damn bit.. even the Dr. says it won’t help.. but it might slow it down some, so they do it.

    When I take my Mother to the store, she also HAS to use a big ass magnifying glass.. Even at walmart. I have seen some real damn jerks getting a laugh at her expense… They shut the fuck up though when I walk up with a .40 cal Glock on my hip… one of these days, someones going to go to far and I’ll be laughing all the way to the pen. HAHAHA

    what next? Well, there is that quad with his breath operated wheelchair, lets go get a funny pic of him trying to work his way through the crowd!
