nicetransitglory- I think you completely missed the point of the FML, probably just needed an excuse to rant. Yes, I agree that the whole 'full-curved, apple-shaped' crap gives people at an unhealthy weight/BMI an excuse to live in blissful ignorance, but it is also ignorant to think she was fat to the point of not being able to tell she was pregnant. News Flash: Women GAIN WEIGHT (I know, shocking!) during pregnancy. I'd never seen a pregnant woman that was a size zero. The FML is that she

I agree with 65. Most women go through that stage in mid-pregnancy too where our belly is just starting to poke out and it is a little hard to tell if we're pregnant or kinda chunky. Either way, the cashier should just keep her opinion to herself because I'm sure she's not some flawless super model working at Walmart

I think it unsurprising when any women buys chocolate. Women love chocolate, chocolate is freaking awesome! Besides, having chocolate once a day is actually extremely healthy for you.

107: or it could be that cashier was just being a total bitch and can't tell the difference. besides, i actually HAVE seen curvy women who are at a perfectly healthy BMI. also, if you wanna be overweight, fine, whatever. that's YOUR decision. i'm not going to belittle you or insult you for that fact, though I might try to inform you in a polite manner it would be better on your body to get healthier. and that's only if i know the person. people can live their lives however they want, so long as

What's it matter to you if someone has a "curvy" or "full figured" body! Personally I'm sick of people deciding that overweight is unhealthy and therefore I can be a rude asshole to anyone that is overweight! Using the fact that overweight is unhealthy is just an excuse for people to be mean! You know what else is unhealthy, alcohol, cigarettes, fast food, etc.There are lots of unhealthy things that everyone does, but you don't see people being mean to other people because of

Actually smoking I'd banned in most public areas now because its unhealthy and people bitch about it all the time and that's how it's gotten banned so your argument is wrong and bitching about it is the only reason anything was ever done. People have been bitching about fast food for years as well that's why McDonald's can't give out free toys for happy meals anymore. Also alcohol was once illegal because of women bitching about it so everything you just said is wrong They should have a littl

It doesn't matter whether the OP is pregnant, fat, or pregnant and fat. The cashier should keep all her assumptions and judgements to herself. What if the candy bars weren't for her? The cashier had no way of knowing why OP bought them.

124 -Just about every single doctor you meet will tell you that being overweight is unhealthy--it's not like "Oh, my god, I don't know why people tell me to start eating healthier all the time. I'm only 400 pounds. That's perfectly healthy and I don't know why everyone thinks you need to be like under 200." Being overweight technically IS unhealthy. There's no opinion involved; it's a fact. -I tell off people for smoking and drinking all the time.

I can see now why the national obesity rate in the US is topping 35%. No, that isn't overweight, 35% of ALL men, women, and children in America are straight up fat ass obese! I could give a fuck about the thumbs down, we are going to hit 50% in 8 yrs because of the coddling and telling people it's ok and they are beautiful. Fact, it's disgusting! Stop telling people that things that are clearly wrong are ok!!! And it's not just your choice when I have to sit by you at a movie, on a plane, o

151: in that case, I say that no woman should be able to wear anything that reveals anything other than arms and legs, because i don't want to walk behind it, or sit on a plane next to it, or sit next to them in a movie theater since I personally find it disgusting. yeah, that's not how life works. if you find something offensive that is not directly harming you, be an adult and deal with it. i am in no way required to cater my lifestyle to your definition of what's acceptable (in this case, no

Agreed, or I would have asked to speak to her superior and demanded some sort of reprimand as a customer you're the one making sure asshats like her are employed there.

Reply

Oh I TOTALLY would have humiliated that bitch. I'd have said in loud voice so everyone could hear, "I don't see why you're surprised that a pregnant woman or anyone else would buy chocolate. Now where is your manager? I want to speak to them immediately!"

I agree. OP should have complained to the manager. She had no right to say that, even if OP was actually that fat. We all know one very important thing, NEVER piss off a pregnant woman.

You should have reported her to the manager. Her job is to take your money and give you your items, not to make assumptions about you and comment if she thinks you're getting chubby. I hope you told her you're pregnant and put her in her place. Also, congratulations on the baby! :)

Ya, whatever happened to "the customer is always right"? I'm spending MY money at YOUR damn store. Honestly, if this happened to me, I would probably leave my groceries and walk out and go to a different store.

"The customer is always right" is a horrible concept and should be abolished. The customer is not always right, and can very often be an asshole. That nonsense needs to go.

Reply

39- maybe sometimes, but that has nothing to do with this fml. OP is a paying customer and did nothing wrong, your argument is pretty much invalid in this case.

That's right about when I would say something to her, honestly even if you were overweight an not pregnant it's not any of her business. All she needs to know is that you wanted them.

Because being a Wallmart cashier is such a position of respect and responsibility that she gets to give you unwanted lifestyle advice! Not. When she becomes a doctor and you ask for her advice, _then_ she gets to tell you that you should eat less chocolate. Until then you are quite entitled to kick up a fuss and report her for it. Congrat's on the new-one.
