I posted on Makeupalley Bath & Body board about the Free Cosmetic news, how happy I was when I saw they actually did, and what I got?
- isn't that taking advantage of the situation?
- what you did is no better than what a shoplifter does
- being dishonest makes you happy?
- stealing makes you feel better?
Some went on about how she thinks this is a lawsuit abuse,
"There really are not litigants in this lawsuit...no purchase necessary means that people in the US get $20-25 worth of product so a few lawyers can get a few thousand bucks. The lawyers claim that the "lawsuit" is filed because these cosmetic companies kept prices too high. What do you see wrong with this??? They made money so that every American can walk into a department store and get $25 in free merchandise..."
It's either she knows something I don't, or she just made things up (which is most likely what happened).
Here's what I think.
GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE ! Lawyers make money no matter what, either you take the freakin' Shower Gels or not. And why would they get enraged if billion dollar companies gave million dollars to another million dollar companies?
And some girls went "It is WRONG!", well...who the hell are you to tell me it's wrong? I have the same right as everyone in the U.S to walk into Macy's and get free stuffs.
"Why you got more than 1 stuff, you're not supposed to!" Aaron got himself a shower gel at Macy's and he got me a perfume at Neiman Marcus, is that wrong? And I did not go back in line to get more, I am better than that. Even if people do, why the fuck do you care?
Did I cross your little moral ground check if I got 2 stuffs instead of 1?
And how in the hell I'm stealing, again? Did they miss the FREE word on FREE COSMETIC?
I don't know why I let some bored negative resentful women sitting around their computers get me, maybe because I know I didn't do anything wrong and they kept stating I was.
I never grew a mean bone, I never bash people and stupidly I expected the same from them. Today I learned my lesson. People are mean and toxic. Toxic people are riddled with their own insecurities, generally bored with life, have much repressed anger and wallow in their own unhappiness.
Why can't they just say "Good for you"? Obviously some people just simply can't see others happy. I am very sad to say this but I never meant to boast. It's not like I have a lot of money, buy fragrances every day and show them off. I got them for free, for god's sake. And yet now I'm a thief according to them. I just wanted to share a good news in case they missed it.
But some people don't deserve it. Some even don't deserve help.
I guessed, welcome to the real world for me. I thought women who loves makeup & good smelling stuffs are supposed to be happy, supportive and have some class. I guess I was wrong.
I cried last night, mostly because I was bewildered. But I came into a conclusion, those women don't deserve my tears and I'm so done with that stupid board.
p.s.// I am so mad so I apologize for the cursing, abusing, and negative vibe.
Hope I don't soak your happiness.
