I thought I'd share with you some of the really hysterical comments I get daily on youTube. I literally laugh myself silly sometimes at these comments and I can't help but show you some of these because they may just amuse you too!
In order to be a video blogger you need to have really tough skin. People are brutal. I've had people tell me I have fat hands, I talk too much, and worst! Lucky enough the positive outweighs the negative in my entire time on youTube however I've never seen so many people so interested in where I get the money to buy cosmetics. I've taken to telling them I sell organs and rob banks! Seriously, when did it become anyone's business where I get money to pay for anything I might own? Lordie! I guess these people didn't have a Mum like mine growing up! If I dared ask such a question I'd get hit over the head with a broom stick or a wooden spoon (My mum's Italian!). My mother instilled some serious manners into my sister and I and asking people where they got the money to buy something or how much it costs is a number 1 offense! That's like seven years to life in my mother's book!
I'm not ranting here I'm just generally amused! At first I was shocked but as I got used to youTube I realized that this was something I'd face daily and now I'm not so much shocked or hurt but just plain amazed at what people say!
Mind you these are NOT children! These are grown adults ranging from 19-35 or more! The funny thing is on a rare occasion some of these, as I dubbed them, "strange ones" follow me over to blogger and make generally rude comments. Mind you I really dislike taking away a person's freedom of opinion and I generally want people to say what it is they are thinking but somehow these "strange ones" think it's their god given right not only to insult me on youTube but waltz on over to Musings, pop a squat, and insult me here!
After all that babbling allow me to paste a few of my personal favorites:
Comment: OMG you breath so loud you talk and then it sounds like your gasping lol.
sorry 'bout that. I hadn't noticed I was gasping or breathing loudly.
I doubt she noticed the sarcasm in my "sorry 'bout that..." This particular gem comes to us from a 23 year old young lady.
In my travels through youTube everyone is VERY, VERY fond of telling me about infections, eye damage, bacteria, germs, etc....as if I didn't already know all this.
This particular comment was in reply to the fact someone had said that powders are good for at least three years. I assume she wants me to use an eyeshadow once and throw it out after 2 months!Once you open them though, you're supposed to throw them out wayyy earlier than that; otherwise, you're just setting yourself up for any eye infection.
Update: No Pink Eye Yet! Phew!
As I was saying earlier people are positively fascinated with my income!
Comments: ooo mmmyyy ggooosh!!!..loopove your collection!!!!...how mcuh money do spend on makeup??.. i mean just for 1 eyeshadow or blus..etc..cause u said u don't buy cheap makeup liek the bodyshop..and i can't even afford body shop cosmetics...=).. man! u talk alot at the beginning...where do u get all that money to buy these stuff.. u must be rich!..anw, its quite an awesome collectioncheers~
so what do you do for a job to afford all this makeup? lol
I felt like replying None of your damn business LOL but I was nice! I thought the LOL at the end was a nice touch! woahh.....i want your makeup. each of those eye shadows are like 13 dollars!! your probably broke huh. ahahaha. How do you afford all your goodies?! They amaze me! x
Wow! How do you afford all that stuff? Do you have a mac pro card? Either way, that is still a lot of money! I saw your stash videos. I would love to just have like a fraction of what you have!
No I don't but damn I WISH I did! How mutch money did all the stuff cost must have been really expensive? But everything looks so yummy and delicious!!
How do you afford to buy high priced cosmetics at one time? and do you have a mac pro store near you?
They are equally fascinated with how much I talk and aren't shy of telling me in rude terms how much I talk:
Comment:you really do talk a lot. :|but great stash
This one has a an irritated smiley at the end! I guess my talking really pissed her off! The nerve of me! Talking in my own videos!
Comment:WOW u talk alot!!!
Folks are also very fond of telling me that I giggle too much, I say ummm too much etc....
Comment:u sat "ummm" alot in this video omg lol
Well I guess you get the idea! And you can imagine that one of the main reasons I don't do videos (and am slowly fading out FOTD pictures) anymore is because of all this drama! It's sincerely too much of a headache to monitor comments on youTube and take out time to reply to what I consider some seriously weird comments. I'd much rather spend that time here with you guys interacting, discussing cosmetics, and just having a generally good time!
Strangely enough this post wasn't inspired by youTube. It was actually taken from the fact that I've made a guest starring appearance on a few forums this week. Pictures of my stash and my self were taken from here and placed on a forum. Some of the comments were good ones but some were downright scary from what I saw. I actually wasn't upset by anything that was said (I've been dubbed the "fat girl" on the forums it appears) because over the past year of blogging the written word and blogging video I've grown such a tough skin that none of this fails to shock me anymore or hurt me for that matter. It interests me that people find me so fascinating that they want to rip me a new a**hole without every getting to know me as a person! But oh well..to each his or her own! My take on it is I'm still the same old person I was yesterday and I'd personally never say or do anything that these people do and I take pride in that. I'm a generally nice and good person and I sadly fail to expect the same in people lately but I defiantly treasure those who have the same type of heart that I do!
Hope you enjoyed my foray into youTube!
