“iPhone users are dumb!”
“Infact iPhone is a stupid phone”
“Why would you use your hard earned money to buy such a dumb phone?”
This guy yelled continuously.
“What’s even special about the phone?”
“Isn’t it just a phone? Just to receive and make phone calls?”
He kept on ranting.
Judging by his noise, I knew he didn’t have an iPhone.
Some supported his rant.
Others were silent.
I was busy with my phone (Android)
Quietly creating an article for my audience.
Deep down, I would love to own an iPhone.
I would have loved to engage in this conversation
But I already vowed not to engage in unnecessary arguments.
At least, I’m trying not to.
It didn’t take long, an iPhone user stepped into the room.
This guy kept on with his rant and he even got louder.
The guy with a popping, clean iPhone looked at him, smiled and asked ;
“Where’s your phone?”
The noisy lad started to get a little bit quiet and nervous.
He scratched his head while bringing out his phone from his pocket.
The noisy lad wasn’t even using an android phone.
He was using a small phone with some buttons missing.
The iPhone user smiled and said ; “No wonder”.
Everyone (Including those who previously supported him) burst into laughter.
The noisy lad got quiet real quick and felt embarrassed.
MORAL : People often criticize what they don’t understand and can’t afford. All criticism are not created equal.
Some critics are actually honest. Some are just sketched art. They are not always real. Some have hidden agendas or hooks you may never see.
How do you differentiate real criticism FROM the one with hidden hooks or agenda?
