Okay, I went shopping yesterday with my friend... she tried on some clothes, maybe a size too small and the sales lady said: "Don't you think you need to lose some weight?" HOW RUDE! I know my friend is a little overweight... BUT HOW RUDE WAS THAT?! People are always telling her that she needs to lose some weight... even strangers on the streets. I mean, have you've ever experience anything like that from strangers?

Nope.
They are all concerned. Being fat is bad and it increases her chances of all sorts of lovely diseases and conditions. Like heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Perhaps she should finally heed these people; not just because of how she may look to others but the health implications of being a fatty.

But yeah it was rude I guess but I have heard ruder, like when a drunken fat guy was trying to hit on my best friend and he just said "Hi, please don't eat me fatty," then the guy buggered off, no doubt to go eat some cake or oat meal.

Or at least that is what she thinks, she is a sales rep. she probably only knows numbers up to 18 and the letters S, M and L.

How does it affect me? ...

My health care premiums go up because more obese people mean more insurance claims because they're seeing doctors and in the hospital more often.
My plane tickets have gone up in price because the average weight of a plane has gone up 10% in the last 15 years because of more people being obese and a heavier plane means more gas consumption and higher ticket prices.
My taxes go up because I have to support people being obese on government health programs.

Part of the problem is that a lot of people are "morbidly obese" today, rather then "slightly obese" as of 15 or so years ago. When people can't even walk up a flight of stairs or support their own body weight they really need to do something about their weight.

That and the fact that there are a lot of commercials on tv now (at least in the US) that claim "It's not your fault that you're fat, blah blah blah" and try to push pills. Most people don't try exercise or a healthy diet, or make a very poor attempt at it and these commercials prey on them and lead to unhealthy thoughts like "Yeah, it's not my fault, I did try walking five minutes three times a week and I didn't lose weight. It's not my fault!"

LISTEN YOU FATTY COW LOSE SOME WEIGHT OR DIE.But that is true, she may die earlier because of it. Or one day she may run out of food and eat herself.
Perhaps we should have a petition to make her loose weight.

And other studies have shown that some fat people really can't help being fat. Sure, people have taken hold of that, and tried to profit from it, but still it all really boils down to what you want to believe. The things you say are true, but I, for one, do NOT believe someone with in the reverse situation of obesity, that is to say someone with an eating disorder, affects your life as a consumer any less. In fact, I would most definitely say it affects it more. A visit to your family doctor costs much less than a visit to the emergency room and a seven month hospital stay because you're malnourished and freaking refuse to feed yourself.

There are always going to be people in this world who are bigger/heavier/fatter whatever, by either choice or by birth. Some people, including myself, want to do something about it, and do. However, I'll never be smaller than a size 13/14, so that's my goal. Why? Because that's what my body says I should be and because I'd look really freaking weird otherwise. There are many people out there who say that is simply far too big. But why should they be allowed to dictate that?

This saleslady wasn't concerned for the health of her customer, she was just a witch. And personally, I think rudeness is a much worse condition. I know if I had said ANYTHING like that to a customer, I'd probably be fired. And branded.

Flying Mullet
08-03-2005, 05:11 PM
I agree with you 110% foa. I'm referring to those that are morbidly obese and those that don't try to do anything about it and then claim that it's genetic or can't do anything about it. If you eat a healthy diet and/or get regular exercise but aren't falling within the "heathly" boundarys of weight for your age, sex, etc... then in my opinion you're healthy and your weight is healthy because your body's running smoothly and you're taking care of yourself. But unfortunately that's the minority and the majority get fast food 2-3 meals a day, never work out and then complain that they can't do anything about it and that's what's driving health care and other costs up (plus the fact that the baby boomers are getting older and more obese so that just exponentially drives up the costs but that's a discussion for another time).

Also, I agree that anorexia and similar diseases cost more but they are such a small percentage (as far as treatment is concerned) that obesity ends up over-shadowing it. Also, as I said before, <b>both</b> are an issue that need to be corrected, but we're talking about obesity in this thread.

And I agree that the salesperson should have kept her mouth shut. Regardless of how she felt she represents the business and she should be working making the sale, not preaching about weight and weight-loss.

It annoys me when people always have something nasty to say!Last year I went really spotty, I hated it so I went to a Clarins stand to buy some stuff to sort out my skin and the woman was like "Yes, you have very bad acne!" and she was so stuck up about it, and I was like "Yeah, that's why I've come to buy something to sort it out" and the stuff just cost a fortune and made my skin worse, so I was like "Stfu!"

Tell her to have a collection of stones handy, to practise with them for hours every day, and to throw them right in the eyeball of anyone who says anything like that.

If it's an issue where it's harming her health, then it's some of her friend's business. If it's not, then it's nobody's.

See this is what your friend should have done. Punched the saleslady in the face, then stand over her, as she lay there unconcious, eating a double bacon cheeseburger, letting the grease drip onto her face.

There's a reason why some retail workers work in retail. They're ignorant, and aren't competent to work a job that entails using your brain.

That ignorant moron for a saleslady had no right to say that. That's mean.

However, if people constantaly remind her, there must be a reason, and I'm sure your friend is concerned about her weight, and she should get into a healthy lifestyle, (i.e. some healthy eating and exercising habits).

What the saleslady did was wrong, it didn't show concern for her customer, and even if she did say that Chris's friend were fat, it would still be wrong. If you're working at a job that communicates with customers, you are expected to "kiss a$$." I worked at a movie theatre and no matter how rude someone was, I'd still kiss their a$$. If someone insulted me about my weight, I would feel horrible about myself, and no one should have to feel that way. Obviously she may have a problem, but close friends and relatives should be the ones concerning over it, not some random rude saleslady.

I know a lot of people discriminate against fat people, but there are still things called "manners."

I read this one story in K-Zone (a kids magazine in the philippines) that happened in Brazil.

A professor was fined 2,600 reals for calling one of his students a 'fatty'. The student left the classrom to go to the restroom, but left her tape recorder on so she wouldn't miss a word from her professor's lecture. When she played the tape back, she heard the professor telling the class she was a 'fatty' and that she would get fatter if she didn't go on a diet.

So yeah, it's really rude.
