There’s something about local newspapers that seems to bring out the more eccentric side of a community. Once you give people a forum where their grievances (big or small) can be shared, you’re opening the floodgates for all sorts of feedback and ideas.

Of course, this is often a good thing. You're giving people who might not normally have a voice the chance to share their own unique point of view. But then you also might give a platform to people with rather toxic views, like in the case of one quite opinionated Florida man.

There’s an entire Facebook page devoted to Angry People in Local Newspapers, and a quick scroll through will quickly remind you that people are indeed crazy.

Read on to learn the story of one man who shared his thoughts on women’s styling choices and the hilarious comments that ensued.

Some people say that women like to get dressed up and wear makeup to impress men.

Perhaps some women do feel this way, but we’d guess that it’s not true for most.

Others say it’s to impress other women.

Everyone likes a compliment now and then!

Still others say they wear makeup only for themselves.

Because we don’t need anyone else’s approval.

But one man from Florida is firmly in the “women should look good for men" camp.


Here’s what the man from Sebring, Florida had to say in his local newspaper.

Wow, Don, we don’t remember asking for your opinion!

Sorry, we can’t hear you over the sound of our eyes rolling out of our heads.

It’s interesting when people try to exert control over the appearance of complete strangers.

Naturally, the internet came through with some hilarious responses to this post.

We can always count on you.

BRB, just growing our hair out and getting a nose ring.

We don’t like you either.

Take that, Don!

Maybe he needs to self-reflect.

Oooh, sick burn!

Let’s make it into a game, shall we?

Ten bonus points for you!

An apt observation.

You’re not wrong, Alan.

Consider the following.

No one likes a bellend.

Oh hey, red flag.

It’s a public service, really.

Sarcasm always wins.

via: Facebook

It would just be devastating for us all.

Some people tried to help Don find his person.

via: Facebook

It’s a match!

Have we entered a time warp?

via: Facebook

Because it’s hard to believe that people think this way in 2019.

It can really be boiled down to one thing.

via: Facebook

And there you have it.

An open letter to Don.

via: Facebook

Mind your own business, man!

Which century is it again?

via: Facebook

He might be happier in 1919.

A voice of reason.

via: Facebook

Say it again for the people in the back (or just Don).

Dang it.

via: Facebook

Whoops! Guess we have to rethink some things.

We’re keeping our witchy long hair.

via: Facebook

Be gone, haters!

On the other hand...

via: Facebook

Dang, he caught us!

Our biggest goal.

via: Facebook

Yep, who needs a career or personal happiness anyway?

His poor wife.

via: Facebook

We’ve got a feeling that this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Don’s opinions.

A little self-awareness goes a long way.

Take this into account.

via: Facebook

All very good points!

Red alert.

via: Facebook

Phew, close one there!

The moral of the story?

We’ll keep rocking our looks and not caring what anyone has to say about it. Be sure to share this article with your Facebook friends!
