  • Fat people need to lose weight.
  • Normal-sized people need to lose weight.
  • Most thin people need to lose weight.

What? No, thin people and those in a normal weight range do not need to lose weight. What are you, an anorexia fan??

She is way over 200 N





And please don't respond that it's a choice to be fat, because even if that were true (which is debatable), it still doesn't excuse being so rude towards them. Also, it's just an analogy.
So folks in the USA get fat because... The air???
No, you get fat by eating junk food and not moving around. I travel outside the country and every time I come back I am flabbergasted by the amount of fat people.




By “never sport,” do you mean that you never exercise? I eat normally, perhaps even less than average, and at the very least go for a 30-60 minute walk (with my dog) every night; and yet I am still a good 30 lbs overweight. I used to be even heavier, and it took a year of hardcore diet & exercise just to get down from “obese” to “overweight.” We are all made differently, in case you haven’t learned that in your 59 years.
I walk between 5 and 8 miles a day. Just walking beside what else I do. 30 pounds to much is not fat in my world

I'm pretty sick of fat people on planes when I fly too, but I board knowing that in America, half the population is obese and the chances are high I'm going to get sandwiched in between them. It is what it is. I 'm not gonna make a big deal about it and be a jerk about it when they can easily hear me doing so.

Not in this case, I know he was texting, but plenty are talking on their phones, like the woman was last week.

Yeah lol - I have to agree with you on this one. Wasn’t he simply texting his friend in a personal conversation?

What did people ever do in the days without social media.

They coughed, sneezed on the offender. Offenders are people whose body parts spill over into your seat and people that recline their seats. If none of that worked, they pretended to spill their drink. And if that still didn't get the offender to mooove, maybe burp and fart as the grand finale. That's what they did, before social media.

'I'm only sorry I couldn't take up more space'

don't understand this at all, did she even try to puff her cheeks out and hold her arms out at he side like an ape and tilt back and forth? That could have taken up a lot of space.

So much venom & vitriol towards the metabolically challenged.


Shameful.
