Being a bride-to-be is one of the most exciting times in a person's life, so you can forgive them for wanting to post on social media to show off their ring, and maybe put up some lovey-dovey picture with their fiance. It can be slightly nauseating as you scroll through social media, but it can also be heartwarming in moderation.
One woman was very excited after her boyfriend proposed, but nobody online seemed to share her excitement, and instead had questions about her hygiene.
An unnamed woman posted a photo on Facebook sharing that her long time boyfriend had just proposed, and she said "Yes," but the photo she posted only brought up questions instead of congratulations. Although the ring on display is admittedly gorgeous, it is the woman's hand, or rather her manicure, that has everyone talking.
Folks could not understand how she let her nails get in the state they were, and everyone was struggling to understand what exactly was going on. "It looks like the nail is running away!" one person commented online.
Instead of sharing in the newly-engaged woman's joy, people piled on trying to puzzle how her pink and gold-tipped nails came to be in the shape they were.
One person wrote, "I'm not normally speechless when I look at these kinda photos...I'm 100% speechless." Then others wondered how it was that some of her fingernails seemed to have grown quicker than others.
The jokes started to come in droves, and hardly anyone took time to congratulate the woman, as they were all too busy roasting her. "Surely this ain't real, if her nails grew that quick they'd be chipped to death," another Facebook user commented.
This begs the question if people online have gone too far, and instead of sharing joy everyone is now too concerned with making others feel bad. Or, was it this woman's responsibility to perhaps clean up her nails a bit before posting the "I said Yes" image online for everyone to see?
Do you think it's her fault for posting a photo of her bad manicure?
Have people online become too mean?
