And they're actually called BUDDY HOLLYS/BUDDY HOLLY GLASSES.
Me: "You mean those Buddy Holly's?"
Idiot: "..Who the hell is Buddy Holly?"
a. If you wear these glasses, you are an emo/poser
b. People who wear these glasses wear them purely for the look. They are never prescription.
However this is wrong. I know because I wear black, thick framed plastic nerdglasses. I am not an emo, (though I have nothing against emos except for the fact that people stereotype me as one) in fact I got these glasses as a mark of respect to The Smiths, one of my favoruite (definitely not emo) bands, because Morrissey used to wear nerdglasses. This probably does make me a poser. But not an emo.
And my glasses are also prescription. I can't see without them. I just decided to get a nice and vaguely original pair if I had to have them at all.
me: Er, no. I need these to see.
