Hater’s Are Prone to Hate

So… I did finally replace that old flip phone. It was hard to give the old girl up. I considered using it until it broke down, but I just didn’t want to see it happen. Better to go out with it still functioning. Also, not that I cared what people thought, I figured, as a side effect, it was finally time for people to stop making fun of my phone. Then I got the iPhone 5…

The amount of vitriol some people have for Apple and its products is just straight up irrational. I know people (who I find otherwise to be quite reasonable) who sneer and cringe at the sight of my new phone, like vampires shying away from garlic. How can I convince them that it’s a fantastic device which has replaced four of my other devices and does everything I need it for amazingly well?… is there an app for that? Oh wait, that’s right. I don’t care.

    Whether you went Apple or Android, you’d still cop the same amount of verbal defecation from the other camp.

    Myself, I’m an Android (I wish. But the phone is good enough, I guess :) )

      True story. There’s no universally accepted phone option. But it feels like Apple haters burn a little brighter.

    As a preacher once said, a man who complains about everything will say Jesus walking on water is just a man who can’t swim ;)

      lol, well put

    Last time I checked, there’s only an app to make shotgun shooting sounds, not the actual shooting. I think you want the latter for dealing with these types.

    Side note, a working shotgun app would be insanely popular and slightly disturbing.

    • coliver

      Well, I have heard some rumours about the firepower of the iPhone 6 :)…

    That’s why I replaced my old flip phone with a kitchen knife. Haters get stabbed in the face.

    • coliver

      How’s the reception on that thing?

    “I know people (who I find otherwise to be quite reasonable) who sneer and cringe at the sight of my new phone, like vampires shying away from garlic.”

    Remind me again why this isn’t just another useful feature of your new jesusphone?

    Screw the haters! Congrats on the iPhone, heh. I’m a bit addicted, but seeing as how they pay my hubby’s salary I’m biased. Also, I use nothing but Apple at the office, both at work and at home. Yet I love google and think the android system is pretty sweet. At least we can all unite in hating Windows?

    *ducks Microsoft fanboy rage*

    • coliver

      Microsoft has actually been doing alright lately. So I say we should just give up on the whole hating thing entirely :).

    Haters are becoming a sub-species.

    Congrats with your iphone. :)

    Who cares about what people think. If you like the iPhone 5, then that all that matters.

    LOVE my iPhone (have a 4S)… I could ever go back to a flip phone! Haters=clueless!

    • boliver

      I am quite tempted to upgrade…finally.

    *Sniff* don’t remind me….my HTC phone won’t turn on. It’s totally bricked! I’ve been taking it from shop to shop trying to get the darn thing fixed. This comic hit a little too close to home.

    • boliver

      It’s true, we should be happy with whatever working phone we actually have ;)
