As readers we’re all used to reading reviews at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at various websites and blogs and weighing the reported pros and cons of the books we are considering purchasing. Some of us give the reviews a lot of weight in our purchasing decisions. Some of us give the reviews not much weight at all. I don’t give reviews a whole lot of weight for the simple reason that what I like may be the very thing that another reader doesn’t like and vice versa…so I weigh any review against my own likes and dislikes to determine whether a book is likely to be one I will enjoy.
Recently I’ve discovered Amazon is a great place to learn about products – not just books. As with books, reviews for products have to be weighed by what an individual wants from a particular product. When we decided to replace our old vacuum recently I did a lot of research at Amazon before making a purchasing decision. I’d long been interested in the Dyson vacuums, simply because they have such a great reputation for picking up dirt and pet hair…and with 19 cats…we sure have a lot of cat hair to pick up. I’m still amazed that I can vacuum up a ball of cat fur equivalent to the size of a good sized cat on a daily basis…yet we still have the same number of cats…and none of them are running around hairless. Amazing!
But anyway…I read numerous reviews before finally deciding on which vacuum to buy.
But this brings me (rather tongue in cheek) to the subject of men. You may have heard that men aren’t all that great about asking for directions. In fact, they have a reputation for NOT asking for directions even when they are CLEARLY lost.
But…according to the Amazon reviews for Veet Hair Removal Gel For Men, they aren’t any better about reading directions than they are about asking for directions.
Some of the reviews written by men who used Veet Hair Removal Gel For Men in a manner inconsistent with the packaging instructions had my husband and I holding our sides as we laughed out loud.
Check out the reviews…and the next time the man in your life doesn’t stop to ask for directions when he’s clearly lost…remember…it could be worse.
