IF YOU HAVEN’T caught up with social media in the last three months, the red flag took the spotlight for the most used emoji on Twitter when it was used to point out warning signs in people. For example, when you use there, their and they’re interchangeably: 🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩. When someone says they don’t drink coffee: 🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩. Or, even worse, when someone says, “I don’t follow @OverheardOptometry”: 🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩 (kidding, but not really).

The viral red flag memes flooded the internet and took a turn when Overheard Optometry joined the party and shared the optometry version of red flag Tweets. You may be thinking, “What could be better than our bizarre stories from the eyecare world?” One possible answer: optometry red flag Tweets: Holiday Edition 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄.
