geeze, leave her alone. people can break heels easily without being big. my best friend is 60kg, and really tall, and she broke a pair of heels when we were out the other night. honestly, they can be easy to break, she might not have been a big person. even if she is, some of you arseholes need to shut the fuck up, cos theres no way in hell you're perfect, let alone the op. and whats so bad bout trying on something you might not buy? i try on shoes and clothes that are expensive that i dont

(On reflection, that's not entirely fair. I have noticed that the harshest critics of the obese are not the very slim - why would they care? - but those who are carrying about 10kg more than they think they should, and are INSANELY bothered about it. )

Why does the thyroid gland always get mentioned in fat threads? Most people aren't fat because their thyroid doesn't work. They're fat because of unhealthy diet and lifestyle. I'm sorry if you genuinely have a thyroid problem, #92, but just because you have it, it doesn't mean every other fat person does. Mentioning it every time there's a fat thread only helps the fat OP keep blaming their weight issues on something or someone other than themselves.

Thank you #105 I was gonna say something similar. Also, as other people have said, if you are so ridiculously obese that you SNAP HEELS then you have a major problem. The OP deserves it not so much for being fat, but for being bothered when people call her out on it and not doing anything about it. Well i suppose that's an assumption, maybe the OP is doing something about it, but trying on heels is not one of those things that she should be doing at the moment.

Reply

Who says the OP is actually fat? For all we know those shoes had a bad heel that was doomed to break, fat person or not. :/

I'm sorry, but Jesus fucking Christ. Stop using the thyroid gland as an excuse. Obviously people who are criticizing people for being fat are not including those who cannot help it in their criticisms. And let's be real here... 30% of all Americans are not obese because of a thyroid problem. Pull your head out of your ass and get a real argument.

Nope. Try working in a data center sometime :) Professional dress required in an environment hazardous enough that it's silly to not wear jeans. I snap cheap heels and I'm not fat - a lot of times it's because the heels aren't attached right. You can get them repaired, though.

Even if your thyroid is malfunctioning, you'll gain at most 20 lbs because of it. My coworker tried that argument on why she gained 60 lbs last year, her thyroid specialist called bullshit on her.

#157- Shoes that are worth two paychecks are generally built a little better than the shit at payless. She deserves it for trying on shoes that are out of her price range.

I work in a vets office and see some animals that come in with thyroid issues that are like little parade floats-because of the thyroid issue. I expect my heels to take all the abuse I give them. My little self running in stilettos is probably no different than a fat lady standing up. Expensive heels should hold up- manufacturers fault they didnt so lady should not have had to pay for them.

Reply

Buzzer sound. Wrong. High heels are not made for weight specific, but for grace. You'd be amazed how many fat girls can walk on heels better than skinny girls. It's a matter of how you *carry* your weight, not your weight itself. I'm not crawling onto 3 inch heels at gunpoint, but I know a girl twice my size--actually, 4 girls twice my size, all dancers, beautiful women who are very round--who can walk on heels like they are sneakers. Ignorance is bliss. Keep your elitist world full of sk

I've broke heels before and at the time I was only 90 pounds but I tripped did you ever think about that it doesn't mean she broke the heels because she was over weight but because she doesn't know how to walk in them?

You are correct, #8, but the sales girl should show some etiquette. The OP should have complained and weaseled out of paying for the shoes. And now she should join Weight Watchers.

8 - So are people who smoke and drink. So are people who have children really. Live and let live, and shut the fuck up about the taxes you pay to live in a civilized country, imo.

Reply

12, there's a reason why cigarettes and alcohol are so heavily taxed. I'm with wazdog. Tax the fatties.

Reply

They tax the products, not the people, so it's ridiculous to say they should tax people because they're fat. Don't apply double standards. And OP, two paychecks? You either don't make much money if it would cost you two paychecks, or the shoes were way too expensive for you (if they weren't, it wouldn't cost you two paychecks, but perhaps 1/4 of one, don't you think?).

Reply

No, all smokers have to buy cigarettes, so it's the easiest way to tax them, the same for drinking. It would be ridiculous to introduce a high food tax because EVERYONE has to eat, fat people just eat too much. Why not tax them? It's not double standards, it's a different way of doing things.

Reply

They also have a tax on junk food you idiots. Ignorance would appear to be an even larger issue in your country than obesity. Why should people have to pay taxes for you to go to school, when clearly it's completely wasted on people like you?

Reply

You're right, in "my country" at school they don't give us a comprehensive list of every single item of food which is taxed. Shocking. It isn't just junk food which is taxed, they tax all restaurants and take aways as well as confectionery and crisps etc, so yeah that's a step, but you can get fat eating too much of anything, so the real answer is to tax the fat people. Eating one bar of chocolate a day won't make you fat, however, eating five plates of pasta, which isn't taxed, will.

stupid people are more of a drain on tax $$ then fat people. wory about your own life and not other peoples. if there fat they have to live with it not you so fuck off

Not everyone buys shoes at a simple store, Hun. Some people go for Manolo Blahniks or Steve Maddens. (Or any other name brand that's huge in the fashion world). In which case, some shoes may ring up to nearly a thousand dollars. Thus, if she were trying on shoes like that, she could have easily spent two paychecks worth of money. Anyways, OP, I am assuming you were trying on stilettos if the heels snapped that easily, so maybe next time you could try a thicker heel. FYL, but try to be more ca

Reply

Spacer, what does not having a comprehensive list of what particular items are taxed have to do with knowing that junk food is taxed? By your logic, someone can also grow their own tobacco, or make their own wine, and suffer the same ill effects that someone paying for taxed cigarettes or alcohol would, and be a far bigger drain on the health system. Stop bitching about paying taxes for health care of fat people when you don't know the OP is even fat, when there are a lot more drains on

Reply

Either way, she is still a fat ass pig and needs to lose weight. And Spacer is right, obesity is #2 on the death list, soon to be #1, I'm sick of wasting tax dollars on that BS too. We should be spending on more important things than a lazy waste of space. YDI for being lazy and looking at shoes you cant afford...

Reply

actually I'm not American, so no my tax payments don't go to supporting the occupation. Be realistic for a moment and consider how many people actually do grow their own tobacco or brew their own alcohol. A tiny percentage. At least something is being done to try to stop people from over indulging, I think the same should be done to fat people. Teaching us everything that is taxed and isn't wasn't on my school syllabus. I don't know how you didn't understand that from my previous comment,

mobius is completely right. There are so many more important issues to concern yourself with.

#74 this isn't the place for that. If you want to debate go to a debate forum. But seeing as this is a post about a fat person and has nothing whatsoever to do with our nations decisions, I do suggest you shut the f+ck up. Cheers!

One thing I've notivced is that everynoe is assuming that the OP is clinically obese, or extremely fat. Fro all we know she could be chubby, or even just thick (like a latina or black woman). We can't just assume that she is massive just because a cashier made a comment. I could easily see someone working at a boutique (where she got these expensive shoe i'd assume), being some weight obsessed bitch who thinks that everyone that isn't a coke whore, or anorexic us a fatass. we are making too many

I know seriously, why was she trying them on if she couldn't afford them? I try not to do that because it gets my hope up if something looks good on me

Reply

Spacer, the OP is American so why would you bitch about your taxes supporting fatties like her if you're not from her country? Judging from your idiotic replies I guess I probably shouldn't even have believed that you're old enough to pay taxes at all. A lot of people brew their own alcohol actually. Probably a much larger percentage of people than there are fat people who never eat junk food. There's make your own wine and beer kits available at a lot of shops. And while not many people gro

Minor point: In the US at least, smoking only costs society slightly more than obesity, not much, much more. Obesity is the second leading cause of preventable death, after smoking. It's estimated that one in three people here are obese. It's a pretty big deal. As far as taxes go, I dislike sin taxes of any nature. However, I think it is impossible to use cigarettes without harming your own health and that of other people, and so it makes sense to tax them, particularly because you will then

Where are you getting this number and what specifically does it refer to? (Ie, tax dollars spent on healthcare, lost productivity, and so forth).

that's like taxing black people, dumbass. that is just another form of bigotry, so shut the fuck up and go crawl up your confections and crisps and stop trying to make a fool of yourself. you don't live here, you live in some other shitty country.

see, i'm overweight (and i'm trying to do something about it, call me out if you will, i don't care) and i partake in the occasional smoke. i have absolutely no problem with sin taxing because it's something i choose to do. however, how the hell are you going to discriminate against people by taxing them or their food? Why not tax companies that put out all these bags of chips and sodas? Anything with high sugar or fat content, slap a tax accordingly so they make that shit to code.

Reply

Steve Maddens are usually like two hundred bucks or thereabouts. Even Manolos are generally not in the thousands. Anyway I don't think #23 meant that that was necessarily too much to spend on shoes, just that it was too much for the op to spend - if you need two whole paychecks to cover the cost of a pair of shoes, then those shoes are obviously out of your budget; people who buy more expensive shoes regularly are usually people who earn enough to afford them. Anyway, if they were a brand

jaysus mobius before you go calling me ignorant maybe try learning to read and or checking your memory. I said nothing about her personally being the one my taxes (which yeah, I am old enough to pay) pay for, I said "for fatties who have heart attacks". It's like writing to a brick wall.

Reply

So are people who smoke, have STDs from casual sex, people who do drugs, elderly people, etc...

Make a complaint about the sales girl. That's a pretty terrible thing for someone who's job it is to be polite to their customers to say, especially if they made you pay for them anyway.

Reply

Well, the problem is that if a pair of shoes costs "two paychecks," it's not going to break so easily. This obviously isn't a real FML.

I know, right? If you're a Fatty McDoublewhopper, here's a word of advice. Don't sit in a chair unless it's a chair you payed for, otherwise you'll be risking damaging somebody else's property.

Hello, welcome to the internet.Please reply to your own comment if you're replying to your own comment. Thank you. Have a nice day.

Depending on what kind of heels they were and how well manufactured the shoes were, the problem might not even have been the OP's weight. And either way that saleswoman was a bitch.

Reply

That's what I was gonna say too... I mean even if the OP WAS really fat, then her feet wouldn't be skinny either...then she wouldn't even fit in a pair of heels...and if the pair of heels WAS big enough to fit a really fat person, then they shouldn't break under the weight... So I highly doubt it was really the OP's fault...more likely the shoes were not manufactured well enough.

YDI, if the money is such a big deal why were you trying on shoes you had no intention of buying anyway. Also, in the nicest way, if you're offended by what the assistants said, maybe go try on some running shoes next?

Reply

Agree completely, I YDI'd because if you're trying on shoes that cost half a month, or a month's salary, then you deserve it for that alone. The excuse "oh I try on things I can't afford all the time" is bull as well, being a window shopper doesn't excuse you from the "break it you buy it" rule.

Reply

The OP never actually said she had no intention of buying them. Maybe they were for a special occasion which might warrant expensive shoes. For a nice pair of shoes, maybe it isn't that much. For a useless pair of shoes, that is way too much.

Reply

You can try shoes on intending to buy them, look at the price and say 'oh heck no!' Our try them on fully intending to pay, and realize they didn't suit you. Also note she had to pay full price for Broken Shoes! Nobody wants to pay for something broken.
