Local YouTuber Wei Hong (偉鴻) is known for doing unboxing videos on his channel Play Channel Wei Hong (Play频道伟鸿). Most of the time, people enjoy his little surprises and his very-down-to-earth videos. However, his most recent video caused quite a stir among the community.
Wei Hong shared that their old dishwasher had broken down and as a result, they needed to get a new one. However, netizens ended up arguing over which was better; washing dishes by hand or using a dishwasher.
Wei Hong’s video was simple. He shared that his previous dishwasher had been perfect for a family of three. However, since it had broken down and his family had gotten bigger, he opted to get a new one! He had apparently gotten the Toshiba Dishwasher and showed its setup in the video. Wei Hong also took the opportunity to test it out while dropping some helpful hints for viewers based on his own experience.
However, netizens had a very different opinion about using dishwashers for their chores. Some agreed that using a dishwasher was great. “Once you start using the dishwasher, you can’t go back,” one comment read. “I’m sorry I bought it (much) later (in life)!” Another pointed out that a dishwasher saves time and prevents quarrels among their family. One netizen added that a dishwasher was great for people with eczema as the dishwashing liquid can be bad for their sensitive hands.
Others however felt that using a dishwasher was unnecessary. Some shared that they liked washing dishes and used the time to connect with family members. A few claimed the dishwasher was a waste of time, electricity and has the added downside of ensuring kids didn’t know how to do their own dishes.
One netizen went as far as accusing Wei Hong of being the reason why kids were ‘growing up wrong’. They claimed Wei Hong was simply making things sound better than they were. “No wonder today’s children want to be YouTubers when they grow up,” they wrote.
Needless to say, Wei Hong wasn’t happy with the comment. “(Does) buying an electrical appliance stifle the future of (children)?” he asked exasperatedly. “If so, is it a problem with education from the parents? Or society?” He later added in his Instagram Story, “I really can’t (with this comment).”
It seems that people really will argue over anything and everything! Oh well, we guess there is no way of pleasing everyone.
