Optical Delusion

, , , | Right | March 5, 2021

A patron calls me over to the computer and indicates the screen.

Patron: “It’s blurry. I cannot see it properly. Fix it, please.”

I am looking at a crystal-clear image on the screen.

Me: “Sir, I don’t know what you mean. The image is perfectly clear.”

Patron: “Not for me. It is blurry. Please make it clearer.”

Me: “Sir, there is no way for me to make the image sharper than it is. It is absolutely crisp and clean.”

Patron: “Well, I left my glasses at home and the image is blurry, so adjust it so I can see it clearly.”

Me: “Sir, the only way I can do that is by driving you home so you can get your glasses, and since I am the only one here, I am not allowed to leave the desk.”

He was super-duper cranky about that, but he never forgot his glasses again. I mean… seriously?
