Am I the Only One?

Am I the only person on here who has had their glasses fall into a bucket of old tank water? It probably happens to me every third water change or so. I go to pick up a bucket to dump it and PLOP my glasses are off of my face and in the bucket. This is why I try to do water changes when I'm wearing contacts...
Yet another reason I'm so happy that I ordered a water changer today. This should be the last time I need buckets...

LOL. Mine probably would if I had them on but I don't have to wear them all of the time so they are kept at a safe distance.

Well, I usually wear contacts, but I dropped my sunglasses into the tank once.

Yeah, I hate doing much of anything when I'm wearing my glasses. I need a new pair, mine are so worn in the hinges that they fall off whenever I look down.

Of all my aquatic misadventures, I have to say that this has never happened to me.

Thanks for the heads up!

My glasses have never fallen into the tank but there have been a few times when filling the tank back up that water splashes on them. Do you know how irritating it is trying to hold the top of the tank open, while pouring water in and trying to wipe the water off on my sleeve all at the same time? Lol
