Ladies; if you saw a guy trip and fall and lose his glasses, what would you think? If he wore very thick glasses, and was blind without them and had to feel around for them on the floor, what would you do? Would you help him fall them? Would you kick them away from him and laugh at him? I'm curious about peoples' reactions.
My first thought would be "aww, poor guy!" (I frequently trip so I know how it feels). Then of course I would help him pick up his glasses, maybe try to say something to make him feel better about tripping and dropping his glasses. I can't believe anyone would actually kick them away!
I'm practically blind without my glasses, so I know the feeling lol It wouldn't matter if he wore thick or thin glasses, the fact that he dropped them and needed help is what's important at the moment. So yes, I would help providing someone didn't already help him first.
And really ? Kick them away and laugh ? Sounds like something out of a cartoon or movie...
I assume you asked the ladies specifically because the male response is obvious: I'd do him a favor, place them closer to him, but not within arm's length, so he could hear the splendid symphony of shoe, on plastic, on shattered glass, as they flow together into a soaring ecstasy proclaiming his infirmity. For a diminuendo, I would then kick my audience/co-composer in the ribs to add some voice work to the piece. I might add a visual element in the form of a boot print to the face. My laughter would be the recessional.
