I have seen some of the blogs I read make comments about anonymous commenter's that find it necessary to be a little, or allot, nasty. When reading these people's post I've always felt good that I haven't had to deal with anything like that. I've only received a few anonymous comments that were truly unknown and they have always been nice. That was until this morning.
I was leaving the grocery store when my Blackberry rang notifying me that I had a new comment. When I clicked to view I was very surprised to see that it was on my Smart Mop post back at the beginning of March. If you don't remember that post or never read it you it might help to go there first. Here is what Ms. (if your a man to bad I will forever be referring to you as Ms. because you didn't leave your name) Anonymous had to say,
Um, I'm pretty sure it was supposed to be a joke... sadly, I guess some people just don't get it...
While this isn't exactly mean or rude there is something about this comment that gets under my skin. Plus if you can't leave your name with your comment than don't leave a comment. I have spent the past hour debating on whether or not I should post something about this and I decided I would just to vent and get it out of my system so I can move on, here goes.....
Dear Ms. Anonymous,
First let me start by asking you if your mother ever taught you manners? You know do unto others as you would want done to you, always say please and thank you, and if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all! Clearly I don't know you or we are not friends because if we were you would have used your name and not hidden under the anonymous title, and you must have known your comment was a little on the rude side.
Now as for the comment itself. If, and this is a big IF, that part of the sales pitch was a joke it was done in poor taste and not executed well at all. Having worked in sales myself and having my husband work in sales you have to be very comfortable with who your clients are before making any kind of joke in your sales pitch. I'm pretty sure that since this was an infomercial the gentleman trying to sell this product does not know his client well enough to make a joke.
After watching that part of the commercial numerous times I seriously doubt that was meant as a joke. I think they were trying to use the bad economy to help make sales because the economy is probably hurting them like everyone else. I also believe that part was hurting their sales because in the last few weeks I have seen the same commercial minus ringing the spilt pop back into the glass.
So next time you want to leave a comment you might want to share some proof as to why you are right and leave your freaking name because it's just rude not to.
Ok I feel better now, thanks for letting me vent!
