I bet it smells like the kitchen at Popeyes while she's tanning.

*overhead speaker*

"Clean-up in tanning room 3."

MMMMMMMM.  I loves the smell of bacon.

From TFA, "Another salon is letting her now tan for free."


It's not a tanning salon, it's Boston Market, and it's not a tanning bed, it's their industrial sized rotisserie.

Tanning company was pretty stupid to not refund the $70.  That is a very small price to pay to avoid negative media attention.  It is their fault the upright booth was broken, they could not accommodate the customer, so the answer seems pretty obvious.
 
2013-04-24 08:59:15 AM  
Were they afraid she'd mistake it for a George Foreman grill?
 
2013-04-24 08:59:39 AM  
They should have just refunded her the money.

Let's face it, this story is catering to FARK's core demographic:
Overweight people, who desperately need a tan, whining.

What again? If this lady spent half as much time working out as she does tanning then she wouldn't have a problem.

/repeated article is being repeated
 
2013-04-24 09:02:17 AM  
After an outpouring support for the woman on social media, the salon agreed to refund her money.

What was our "support" ? Pointing out to the morons that not refunding money for services NOT rendered is stealing! Not much support for the woman though, the table could of broke and tanning is stupid anyway.
 
2013-04-24 09:02:17 AM  
Being known to the world as being too fat to tan is worth $70 to this woman.
 
2013-04-24 09:03:11 AM  
They should start charging by the square inch or maybe the pound.

/I wipe my a** with a rag on a stick
 
2013-04-24 09:04:36 AM  
I'm *pretty* sure they were more concerned with being being for cruelty to a Beluga whale...

Given the lack of details, all I took from the blurb was "I'm a morbidly obese snowflake and the world should accommodate my dysfunctional feeding habits"

:/

Great, now there will be nationwide rolling brownouts.

911. What's your emergency?

Yeah, I'd like to report a grease fire at the tanning salon on 34th Street.

Not sure about that. If you are going to lay down on something all day, isn't it nice to know it wasn't stressed out and covered in cheesey sweat?

OP "Tanning salon employees tell a woman she is too fat to use their tanning bed until she goes off and blubbers about it to the media "

Um, tanning salon still won't let her tan her walrus body there, she was too fat, had to go somewhere else.

Paying for tanning is as stupid as smoking. Why would you give someone money to help you get cancer?
 
2013-04-24 09:19:32 AM  
For any morbidly obese tanners out there, I have a question. Do you lift alternate flaps of skin in order to get full tan coverage? It seems to me that if you're so fat that you would break the machine, a normal tan wouldn't touch the deep chasms caused by your flub.

Can we mock the modmin's for being fat headed?
 
2013-04-24 09:23:33 AM  
I think the salon's got a legitimate grip here.  I don't know what the specs on their beds are but I doubt those things are designed for someone over 300lbs.
 
2013-04-24 09:25:20 AM  
Is the salon so old it doesn't have stand up beds?
I went to get a spray tan for a formal event this last winter and there were several larger women that tanned in that salon.  The salon had them using the stand up beds if they exceeded the weight limit on the other ones.

Now with laser coverage, for those deep cheeze filled folds.

Yeah there comes a point when your right to be as fat as you want comes into conflict with the laws of physics and engineering.

Dear Fellow Fat Person:

There are things we can and cannot do. Tanning beds cannot hold our fat asses. Stop biatching about it and focus your energy elsewhere...on something healthy (because Tanning beds are not, dumbass).

-Monty

ps: This media attention is bad for the business you are calling out AND bad for you. No one wins here.

When she closes the tanning bed lid, I bet it looks like a waffle iron with the batter all oozing out the side of it.

I doubt the Chunk Ass would be willing to stand up for her 15 minute tan session, cuz you know how exerting standing upright can be for portly folk.
 
2013-04-24 09:55:10 AM  
Couldn't they have put a giant pan under the tanning bed and sold the resultant barrels of gravy to an Applebees?
 
2013-04-24 10:07:07 AM  
She payed money to tan. They told her they wouldn't let her tan and didn't give her back her money. If you're not going to give someone the service yous sold them, at least refund their money.
 
2013-04-24 10:09:43 AM  
The other salon also sells a great book "To Serve Man"

You're missing context and facts here, yet you feel you're sufficiently well informed to make this judgement.

I bow to your powers of deductive reasoning.

I, using my run-of-the-mill dullard-sense read the story as "She was told she couldn't tan *that day* because the vertical bed was broken and she had herself a precocious-child moment".
 
2013-04-24 10:36:51 AM  
We're going to need a bigger bed.
 
2013-04-24 11:34:34 AM  
Just man up and let her know the reason she's not getting her deposit back is because she broke the only machine that's able to accommodate her and that the deposit isn't nearly enough to cover it.

Of all the ideas people have about tanning, yours is my favorite.
