Shocking reason woman pretended to be blind for 28 years!
This Spanish woman who may be one of the worst of anti-social people has let 28 years of her life down the drain pretending to be blind because she couldn’t stand saying hello to people. As reported by odditycentral.com, the 57-year-old woman recently revealed that she had always been able to see perfectly, which left her family in shock, even though they had always suspected that something was off about her condition. Her husband told reporters that she would put on her makeup perfectly, and sometimes they would see her trying to look at the TV from the corner of her eyes. But she never admitted to faking her blindness, until recently.
“I was tired of meeting people on the street and stopping to say hello, I’ve never been a very social person, and by pretending to be blind I was able to avoid many social responsibilities,” she said.
According to her husband, “Many times we seemed to see her looking sideways at the television and was always very well made up.”
Even though she was able to have most people fooled, Carmen Jimenez may still have a tough way to go. This is because while pretending she was blind, she had received financial assistance from organizations and personal assistance which could now be interpreted as defrauding them. This may pose a serious legal challenge for her.
