"All people this stupid should die."

There`s a big difference between being stupid and having impaired vision. Also, despite her insistence that she`s not, she probably is senile. I`ve met a lot of senile people who deny that they are, working in elder care.

Don`t be a dick.

Why was she keeping bottles of superglue next to her bottles of eyedrops? Seems to me that`s where she first went wrong. That and not looking at what she was PUTTING IN HER EYES!!

Super glue has bright red caps and bright yellow stickers, It`s obvious she didn`t even look at the bottle before she tried to use it. Those bottles do not look like or even feel the same in your hands.

I`m chalking this one up to being `Blonde`.

1. Put Super Glue within many eye drops containers
2. Apply drops from whatever container you just reached for without checking
3. ????

they said they found cases dating back to the 80`s, but didnt say how many. if there have only been 5 in the past 30 years, i dont think it is a problem. besides, there are two big problems with this: why do you keep your eyedrops and superglue together, and, wouldnt you think you would pay more attention to what you are about to put in your eye.

@moefreak; this is "newsworthy" because it was on the LOCAL news. I live in AZ and Fox 10 is the LOCAL news channel. Not national.

Are you telling me that your local news channel NEVER does news stories that aren`t so "newsworthy"?

I`ve never bought super glue that looks like that. All the packages are in thin tubes, and then put into a child-safe container (kinda looks likes one you would get prescription medication in).

If you can`t tell them apart, and you need the eyedrops to see, chances are you could probably get by without ever buying any super glue...

Why is this newsworthy? The glue comes with a warning. If you are not responsible enough to be trusted to buy and then safely store superglue away from your eyedrops then you only have yourself to blame.

Furthermore...

I disagree that a company should change an entire product line just for a few isolated incidences. The cost it would take for superglue companies to design, engineer, market, distribute, advertise and package would be way too much for it to be cost effective. I personally wouldn`t do it. However, I would suggest adding something nonintrusive to the current bottle design that would be easy to install, like perhaps some tell-tale feel or bright color that people with problems seeing well would be able to tell there is something not right about the bottle they are holding if they are thinking of using it on their eyes.

@Faufox: Yeah, the concept more or less is called "Entropy". Basically meaning any perfect system gravitates toward chaos or disorder. It very well could be that she had a perfect little system for years and really did nothing wrong, but certain outside influences shifted her little world toward chaos that started a butterfly effect that made this happen. This concept is a universal concept of life and it sucks considering it happens to every single person whether they know it or not.

However, just by educating oneself on the very concept mentioned above can help a person understand the eventuality of it and therefore minimize risks by thinking outside the box of what they think of possible within their own daily lives, processes and abilities.

She may be too old to learn new tricks and it`s too bad.

Has something ever happened to you, but when you explain to someone else, it`s just a ridiculous story to them that couldn`t of happened.

Maybe a series of events led up to the superglue being near the eyedrops, who says she put them there? What if grand kids were over and put it there because it looked the same as the others?

What if they weren`t even in the medicine cabinet and was on her dresser? Or kitchen table. My granny kept her medicine in an open place that she can get to easily in case of an emergency.

Could be anything, but you can`t say she put it there herself with 100% truth.

And TheTumor, you`re an idiot, she had cataracts, which means she can`t see in detail.

"All you mistaking her partial blindness for being "dumb"...pot calling kettle black, imo."

Well, let`s see here (See what i did there?). I know superglue isn`t placed on the shelves near any eyedrop product in any store I have ever been in. (So there is no real chance she picked it up there by mistake) Also, she probably shouldn`t be doing any arts and crafts if she has eyesight problems, especially if it requires superglue. (Common sense there) If she were using superglue on a common basis, then you would already know the bottles are similar in size and shape so, again, common sense would tell you to keep them well seperated and to pay attention to what you use and for what.

Verdict? Yup... she is a little dumb for this. Sorry, you lose one internets.

I can`t believe how many a-holes there are on this board.

My grandma had cataracts, it was near impossible for her to tell the difference between two things that looked similar in shape and colour. It`s very depressing when I used to see her and her struggling.

I think some people should learn to have some Empathy, this woman isn`t an idiot, she`s just friggin half blind.

Annnndd that`s why you don`t buy super glue. Honestly, unless Bart Simpson thought it would be funny to do the ol` switcheroo on her, it was her own damn fault. She bought super glue. She stupidly put it where her eye drops would be. Is it that hard to put the super glue somewhere else?
