Amazon's (Awesome) Reviews

   
     Since living abroad, Amazon has been our 'go-to' for when we want to order something on-line and whether it be amazon.com or amazon.fr, we have never been let down. Why do I bring this up, you ask? Well, I have been on Amazon lately in search for a lens for my camera (turns out our photog friend Romain was in agreeance with me that I needed a different one to do the specific things I wanted to do...much to Shaun's chagrin) and after hours of reading reviews and a few suggestions, I am happy to say that my lens is being shipped as I type. But that is not why I am writing this. Over the years I had noticed a few funny reviews and more recently saw a few for the lens so I googled Amazon funny reviews just to see what came up. Hours later, I am still entertained. So instead, I am writing this to highlight the hilariousness of some reviews, most notable the Bic Cristal for Her Pen. I sat for what seemed like forever reading them and laughing at the sarcastic humor (right up my alley) of some of these reviews from what I will assume are women. Here are a few of my favorites.... and if you want to read them all for yourself, click here.

I tried using a man's pen (as soon as my husband showed me how to work one) but I found that when I tried to write out my recipes or my diary, the pens just didn't have staying power. I even tried using a mechanical pencil once, but I was so confused I just sat in the kitchen and cried, and cried until my husband finally bought me something pretty. Now, finally, with Bic for her I can complete writing out my menstrual calendar without it 'running out of ink'. Thanks Bic!


2.0 out of 5 stars NOT for the mature woman!January 26, 2013

Being female I was naturally attracted to "BIC for her" (who can resist those pastels?!). Yet, these pens were somewhat of a disappointment. As a more mature woman, I am currently experiencing the symptoms of menopause. I can be in a perfectly good mood while writing a letter and without warning, in mid sentence, I will become so angry that I find myself using such excessive pressure on my pen that it shatters! Then there are the hot flashes, my hands became so sweaty that I could not keep a hold of that slim design, plus the ink smeared! Perhaps in your next endeavors, a "Female BIC for the mature" with a non-slip, steel reinforced grip, waterproof ink and a built in fan could find it's way onto the market!


5.0 out of 5 stars Thank You BIC for Her Pens!January 30, 2013

I was once like you: a hippie, liberal and feminist woman who was going to college, but handling man pens was exhausting. Since I ordered BIC Pens for Her I have gotten married, dropped out of the college, and birthed twins. I could use these pens to draw hearts all day long but then who would cook dinner? Recipes are a cinch to write down with these pens, and they even smell like strawberries and rainbows. My husband tells me how happy I am every day and who am I to argue with that?


5.0 out of 5 stars These pens showed me my true pathJanuary 30, 2013

Thank you Bic! I thought I was a career oriented lady that was ready to take on the world and climb ladders! Now thanks to these pens (and their fantastic colors!) I learned my place was with a man, and in the kitchen!
Every time I used the pen to write at work, all that came out were recipes and sentences about how cute kittens are. (KITTENS!)
Now I have found a man, and can't wait to cook him dinner and have babies! I think I can do it with my "for her"pens at my side!


2.0 out of 5 stars Size Does Matter :/February 4, 2013
This review is from: BIC Cristal For Her Ball Pen, 1.0mm, Black, 16ct (MSLP16-Blk) (Office Product)
I'm sorry but I like my pens big and thick with some girth to them. Small pens are just not satisfying for me.


1.0 out of 5 stars Seriously DissapointedFebruary 1, 2013
This review is from: BIC Cristal For Her Ball Pen, 1.0mm, Black, 16ct (MSLP16-Blk) (Office Product)
Why BIC? Why do you come up with such an amazing idea in such horrible colors? Seriously? None of the colors in the set matches my nail polish. I am returning the product today and I expect a full refund.
