Things that piss you off that shouldn't

Recommended Posts

My other half often complains that she doesn’t know why she doesn’t have any money a lot of the time. Doesn’t know what she spends it on. 
 

Yesterday I took delivery of something. As she was opening it I asked her what it was. “It’s some serum to put on my eyelashes to help them grow”

Weird but fine I guess. I asked how much It was. 
£45. And that was on sale. 
 

When I asked how much you got for that... she answered with 1ml

Thats not a typo. One millilitre. ONE! For £45. It must be **** liquid gold or something!

Dunno where your money goes? Well there’s a start!

That should have been the starting question and the answer is 99.998% No

This came up in a former office conversation with a woman who was up with all the 'beauty fads'. It blew my mind. I didn't get it. Who, who, in their right mind, actually notices whether someone has slightly longer eyelashes? You don't notice stuff like that. You notice eyelashes when they're stupidly extravagant, and thats about it. Why bother?

Same woman introduced us to the concept of 'HD eyebrows'. Being a geek, I knew that the HD naming convention was the hallmark of snake oil, but when she explained what it was... HD eyebrows are basically very very dark sharply outlined eyebrows. They look absurd. They look like someone's put some electricians tape over their actual eyebrows. And as ever, ludicrously expensive.

I have a mate who was interested reading this and wants to know if the growth thing only works on eyelashes?  :ph34r:

Some people just have to spend money, its like an illness. They get money, they have to spend it. No concept of saving.

I see it with people at work. Earn a decent salary, spent it all every month. Nothing tucked away for a rainy day (or a worldwide pandemic!)

I agree on this, HD brows look ridiculous. Good eyebrows are like a good referee in a football match, you shouldn’t notice them.

Natural almost always outweighs fakery.

Shame so many women don't understand that.  

In my office of 6 women, 3 of them have had Botox, they always talk about plastic surgeries or tucks or plasties.

Even with all these things done, they'd still be overweight munters.  Can't polish a turd I always say :)

Mate it’s £45 for one millilitre. If you used it on anything other than eyelashes you’d need to remortgage

Absolutely. I was watching some Youtube videos of the Robbie Williams Knebworth gigs from 2003 the other day* and the women in the crowd just looked far more natural than what you see around nowadays. No botox, no trout pout, no butt implants, etc. They were just natural beauties as opposed to the identikit blow up doll look that some women aspire to now.

Meh. Women can do what they like to feel more attractive. They don’t do it for our approval, they do it to feel good. 
 

Each to their own.

But they only do it because famous, wealthy people do it.

If no-one had bladed eye brows, Danielle from Dudley sure as hell wouldn't.

Same goes for Botox etc.

I remember YEARS ago, reading or watching something with Jordan in it, advising someone in a camera shoot to "look at the camera like you'd look into the sun and shape your lips like you're blowing bubblegum".

I thought at the time it was mental, but now it's that X10.

It's completely contrived and that's not something or a trait I value, it's fake.

I did think a few years ago that greater equality would mean that women felt less pressured to do all the weird tweeking and product buying.

Unfortunately, it’s actually meant more men thinking they need hair product and teeth whitening and beard oil and layering of three complimentary scents.

What a sad load of old bollocks.

But, again, they don't do it so that lapal_fan off of the internet values it. They do it because they want to, and they think it looks good. Fair enough they do it coz famous people do it, but that's life.

I think a load of fat blokes on the internet deciding what women should and shouldn't do to feel attractive is a load of old shite to be honest.

If only it did make people feel happier though. It just ends up being some weird arms race to keep up with the next procedure, the next ‘thing’. It’s always been the same but easy credit and a million ways to see a million celebrities just appears to be increasing the pressure and stress. Probably getting a bit out of hand when people start injecting their lips with botulinum toxin.

Obviously people can do whatever they like up until the point I’m in charge..

Oh there's lots of stuff wrong with it, but we've always had stuff like that. Just what the stuff is changes with time as does every other element of fashion and taste.

 

I was talking more about the whole male approval thing. They don't do it for blokes on a football forum to give their approval that they look good.

No-one is injecting botox, or blading their eyebrows cos it's fun, it's for approval, which in turn makes them feel good.

These are painful procedures and I don't "judge" people on their appearance (instinct tells me I'm a liar), but it's very, painfully obvious in most cases as to who has had these procedures done.  If they feel great about themselves, then that's great, I just think it's a shame for them to go through that, to feel "normal" or "good".
