CSB time! Although relatively gross.

I work in the IT department of a call center. Being a call center we have a female staff that can only be described as viking-esque. Sure there are a handful of rather attractive women(a hold over from our male HR directory who just got let go), but for the most part it's a sea of fatties out there.

We had this one gal, who's name I shall not disclose, who was easily the largest of the bunch. I'm talking she's 35-40 years old, and is so heavy she can't get around without a walker. Easily 350+, an absolute land whale. This gal, and I'm not kidding, bought a bucket of chicken from the KFC down the street every single day and kept it hidden in her desk drawer for this mid-day cravings.

Well one day I get notified to disable user accounts and badges for this gal, and our cleaning lady. Dave, our HR guy(who hired the hotties!!), comes back to my office to return the now terminated employees badges and is just.. I don't even know how to describe it. I guess high strung yet in a state of total disgust. Sensing a story I ask what's going on.

Apparently the whale was on a rather long call with a customer when the urge to evacuate her bowels took hold. She held it until the call was over, and then b-lined it for the bathroom as fast as a 350+ lbs woman who requires a walker to move can. Well she made it to the bathroom.... She, however, did NOT make it to the toilet.

Dave says he's just minding his business when the cleaning lady basically storms into his office, throws her badge down, and announces she's not being paid enough for this shiat and quits. When Dave asks what she's talking about, he is informed to go and inspect the womens bathroom.

Upon entering this fowl den Dave discovers a handicapped accessible stall that is LITERALLY covered in shiat. The walls, the floor, the toilet, it's EVERYWHERE. Multiple people inform Dave that the whale was the last one seen entering said bathroom, so he pulls her aside to find out what happened.

He is told that she tried to hold it in as long as she could. But after she dropped her pants and underwear, it was too late. So rather than trying to actually sit on the toilet, she just bent over, aimed in the general direction of the toilet, and let it fly. Thus creating this disaster that I have yet to come with a proper adjective for.

Moral of the story: Skinny girls don't shiat all over your walls, and make the cleaning lady quit. Should have seen this broads keyboard/PC when I had to go account for the equipment. Utterly disgusting.

Aracnix: @BiffDangler: That'd be the vast majority of the human population.

Otherwise...

Speaking from personal experience, when I went from 260 lbs to 155 lbs, the journey was very enlightening. The smaller I got, the more people noticed me. Thinner = more approachable. I look at people who are the size I was then, and they frighten me. I wonder what they are hiding or what happened to them to make them so dependent on food. Because food *is* addictive and it *is* ubiquitous and, while being fat is socially unacceptable, eating a lot of food isn't. So good luck making sense out of that. For my own part - and I think I speak for most obese folks - no one ever taught me HOW to take good care of myself. 20 years of dieting through every bland, boring, tasteless and predictable program you can imagine never helped and it's really discouraging. You get to the point where you can't think of yourself as anything but fat, and then you're done. Once your self-perception is "I'm fat, I've always been fat and I'll always be fat," it is impossible to be anything BUT fat.

You can't change your body until you change your mind.


//the more you know


THIS

I'd also add this, as someone who is losing the weight I've felt I've always had, it enrages me any time I here some fat person complain about discrimination, and say being fat is ok. It's not okay. You're lying to yourself, and worse, you are perpetuating the idea that being fat is okay. It's like saying being addicted to meth is okay. All you're doing is making an excuse to not except the fact you are failing as a person, and you have for a long time. Instead it is just easier to say 'Hey, I'm okay. It's everyone else that is wrong.' In doing so, you're just fostering this repugnant notion that ignoring self control and being accountable to yourself, and for yourself, is perfectly fine. It's not. Fat people, stop doing that. Then again, if you could 'stop' yourself from doing anything we wouldn't need this discussion.

AngryJailhouseFistfark: Sergeant Grumbles: Their weight might be the same, but they carry it well.
Ms. Grumbles is 5'0" and +160 pounds. She has a slight belly and the rest is T&A. You might call her thick, pudgy, or plump, but not obese. To me, obese is when you don't carry it well, and that usually means you have too much of it, no matter your body type.

Mrs. JailhouseFistfark has similar proportions, though taller. All hips, ass, & bosom with an hourglass shape. Haters will call her fat but I call her magnificent. She has some friends, though, where it's all belly. Big ol' belly going everywhere and the ass is flat and the boobs are tiny. Big, thick necks, too. Ick.

That's because the rest of us are sick of having to crank the AC to accommodate the big girl who is always hot, even in December. "It's so hot in here!" [fanning herself, wearing a sleeveless shirt] "Are you guys hot?" Meanwhile I'm at my desk with my hoodie up, a blanket on my lap, and another one around my shoulders, making typos because my fingers are numb.

And we're sick of having a potluck every other week.

It's "discrimination" in only the most technical sense. In the way the word "discrimination" is generally applied when the subject is people, it's implied that it is done without good reason.

Obese people can make good employees. But they incur more costs, take more sick days, and more often than not (it seems) are just lazy farks to begin with, them being fat as a result.

Just as you can raise kittens in square jars so that they grow up into cube-shaped cats the same applies to the rear ends of some women who sit in office chairs with arm rests. Look around your office and ask yourself if nature actually intended the human ass to have right-angles.

The worst crap you get is from other women, especially female bosses. My boss just sees me as lazy because I'm fat.

Bullshait.

Every single job I've ever had always had an obese girl that is what I call a "semi-manager" (works in both meanings of semi btw) Which means she isn't a manager but somehow she can tell everyone what to do and the real managers back her up.

I don't care what weight a potential employee is as long as they are qualified, have the right attitude, and dress well. You can be plump and still dress classy. Slobs are ignored no matter what their weight.

Also, for those of you making jokes about reinforced office chairs and toilet destruction, if you "read more" of this article, you will find that the same discrimination does not hold true for fat men, only fat women. So this isn't really discrimination against being fat, or costing more in insurance. It's a matter of women being expected to be sexually attractive to get ahead at work while men can be fat and bald.

Millennium: Nitpick: you can't actually sing Ride of the Valkyries. It has no lyrics.

/unless you count "Kill da wabbit, kill da wabbit, kill da wabbit..."


Ummm, no.

The "Ride" is the prelude to Act III but about a minute and a half into it the vocals enter, with Gerhilde and Helmwige calling back and forth to each other. Eventually they are joined by the other Valkyries except Brunhilde. Most of the time if you hear the ride done as a standalone piece, the vocals are left out, but not always.

For example

What's stopping you from getting the gym membership now?

Hell, just go to the gym; tell them you are thinking about getting a membership and they will probably let you use the gym for free. In any case they should have a single-use price if you don't have the kind of cash to put down on a membership today.

When it comes to this, if you put it off today, you'll put it off tomorrow.

I know this is a joke but seriously I worked at a call center for 5 years and fat people would break our chairs ALL THE TIME, then grab a new one and throw the broken chair into some other poor saps cube.

I think people have no concept of the amount of calories they actually need. I've quit eating lunch and just eat a protein bar in the morning; sitting at a desk for 9 hours a day, I dont NEED the energy (calories) that I see people plowing down. it took me 8 months at my new position (formerly I was walking 5-7 miles a day running around a hospital) and gaining 20lbs to figure out that it was going to get really bad if I didnt get a handle on it. And that weight gained was despite still lifting weights and working out on a regular basis.

I think most people just don't give a shiat.

Here's the truth about bathrooms, from someone who cleans them for a living.

Women are disgusting. Men leak a little pee by the urinal, which is sterile and comes up with a mop no problem. Women leave blood on toilet seats, in stalls, they leave trash all over, piss all over the seat, shiat on the inside rim of the seat, bloody tampons/pads put in the sanitary napkin disposal but not in the bag.

If youre gaining fat while lifting weights and working out on a "regular" basis then you are doing something wrong.

That is unless "regular" means once a week or twice a month, then yes that will lead to fat gain, otherwise it leads to muscle gain as long as you havent plateaued and in that case you need to increase the weight lifted and stress of cardio.

D_Evans45: TheAlmightyOS: i wont hire skinny people because they are just not right in the head. all of them are just so damn smug about there anirexia


/am i doin it right?

It doeant work that way. That's like a bum accosting a bunch of rich people and nonsensically berating them. Also it lacks proper spelling, effort, another all around pijss poor attempt indicative of a true fatty.


all well. troll fail. never tried it, thought this might be the thread for it.

seriously though, why all the hate for the obese? Linking it to mental illness and the like? My girlfriend an I are overweight (mine is more a like of junkfood and not enough miles on the bike, hers is a medical issue) and we are some of the nicest, hard working people you may ever meet. Why all the rage cause I have a spare tire?

frepnog: Jake Havechek: Not if they work at Lane Bryant.

why is it that Lane Bryant models always look so damn delicious? considering the target demographic (fat women) that is.

i mean, come on.


*I* would hit that, and I'm a straight woman.

Regarding the subject at hand, though, if obese women are being discriminated against in the wokrplace, all they have to do is move to the Midwest. Plenty of obese women here in positions of authority. Heck, my last 3 bosses were obese ladies.

/They were not great bosses, either.
//Cool story, sis
