I tell you - I just attract the weirdos, meanies, idiots. Surely that's the only explanation. It's my infamous tin-foil hate.

Let me explain. I screwed up. I didn't plan everything out on the move like I should have - forgot to handle a few things and put myself in an embarrassing situtation. 'Nuff said.

So...after work I went to take care of everything. In the process I was sitting in a waiting room to talk to the nice lady behind the counter. There at the counter was a woman (I refuse to use the term Lady). I had forgotten something in the car and went out to get it. She saw me leave, but didn't see me come back in. I picked up my book and started reading to pass the time. What I didn't realize was I had become the hot topic of conversation.

I completely missed it.

When it came my turn the Lady working behind the counter apologized for the woman ahead of me.

Tammi - Why? What did I miss?

Lady Behind Counter - Oh, she was just talking pretty bad about you.

T - WHAT! I don't know her. What'd she say? (ever the glutton for punishment)

LBC - she was talking about how fat your legs are and how big your feet are.


If I HAD heard it...my comment would have been - And you last looked in the mirror when?????

How Rude! And why do I always run into these asswipes?

I don't want any comments telling me she's wrong - I have put on weight. I'm not fat, I'm just larger than I like to be. I guess I'm posting this for a couple of reasons.

1) She flippin' pissed me off....

2) Lesson learned - Be Nice. You never know how hard you may be kicking that person who is already down.

Wait. Not only is it rude, but the woman behind the desk is equally guilty. She's not a lady either. Lady's don't say hurtful things or repeat gossip.

And... if you wore a small shoe, you would topple over. Tall buildings need adequate bases to keep them structurally sound.

Stupid people.

Stupid b*tch! Where do people get off thinking they have room to say anything about other people??

And I'm with Bou, the other chic should have said anything.

I live with people and crap like this every day!!!! I know how pissed you must be. In my experience, people who do that sort of thing are simply insecure and very jelous, on top of both of them being stupid AND uneducated.

And I thought this only happened here. Thanks for enlightening me!

I am sure she was just jealous. That is ussually what makes women act like the c word.

Have to agree with Bou. She should never have mentioned it to you. So they were both hideously rude without reason. She's the kind of person who tells you things "for your own good"... yeah right, she just wants to see what you'll do. Stir the pot... watch the fireworks.

It's even possible that the other woman never said a word... this b*tch just wanted to make trouble. Sorry I didn't think about all this earlier when I was talking to you!

I won't say she's wrong per se, but if you have fat legs...well, nevermind, you don't. And with them being like eight feet long, it would't show anyway.

Since I am so good at making people cry, I will come over there and make her cry.

Seems I can do it with just a look now!

I do my best not to say anything about someone behind their back. If I wont say it to their face I try not to say it at all. Why? Because inevitably anything you say will get back to the person you said it about, and usually in a worse context then it was meant.

However I have to disagree about the girl behind the counter. If she thought you overheard the comments and was appolgizing for rude comments by another customer, then she was being polite. To ignore it would have been rude.

Neither was a lady. If the one behind the counter had been, she would have shut the other one up when she started, and not repeated a thing. Feh. Unless you have done something really odd in the last few weeks, you do NOT have fat legs. Or anything else...

Find out where she lives and I'll come over and kick her (I'm sure VERY fat) ass! (Should be easy, 'cause its obvious the woman needs glasses!)

It's just sad that some people can't tell the difference between fat & hot.
