      I really doubt if you see her, you will have the nerve to talk to her. Cheap internet and cheap smartphone has given you the edge to be a faceless bully. How about congratulating her for what she has achieved and pick up your sorry ass to your grind. I doubt it!

      Bullies?….did you read what they wrote?
      one asked if she was in fact seeing what she thought she saw…and the other confirmed that it is indeed what she thought she saw. (lol)
      One now cant state facts without being called a bully or hater. WOW

    @ Ije fine, you are obviously the bully. she just asked a question and complemented her. Pull your self together and stop displaying your snobbish self on the internet. My 2 cents
