Being known to the world as being too fat to tan is worth $70 to this woman.

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

octopied: They told her they wouldn't let her tan and didn't give her back her money.

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".

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).


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

DubtodaIll: 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.

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.

Paying for tanning is as stupid as smoking. Why would you give someone money to help you get cancer?

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.
