Thanks for the mental image!

Today, a customer told me, "Girls your size can't bend at the waist." I couldn't stop laughing at the imagery long enough to be really offended. FML

Hey, it's always okay to laugh at yourself

Laughing at the stupidity of others at an attempted insult is always the best!

Hey, it's always okay to laugh at yourself

Yeah, beSIDES, that guy doesn't matter anyway. Women with curves are better, don't let that body go to waist. ;)

#13 *sighs* Yaaay, answering fat body shaming with slim body shaming... Because that's going to make things better.

Beautiful. Just beautiful.

24- i could be wrong and im not sticking up for anyone, but i think 13 meant, all girls are lovely, no matter what size they are, and waist used as a pun for waste. idk thats what i got out of it anyway lol.

#42 I understood the puns, it's the "women with curves are better" that I'm talking about. I'm just tired of hearing people debate the morphology of women and men. You like thin people, good for you. You like heavier people, good for you. But I don't understand the need to put people down for their weight.

Trying so hard.

I never put anybody down for their weight though? #46

To quote a friend of mine, 'If I wanted someone with the curves of a 12 year old boy I'd go find a 12 year old boy.'

50- What makes people think it's okay to say things like that? I can tell you, it isn't nice to hear yourself described as a "12 year old boy", just because of your body type.

#46 well in all honesty I think men who shame chubby women and go for the skinny are dicks. I personally believe that either works, as long as they are healthy, and don't try to be super skinny because "that's what men want". Remember ladies (and back me up if you agree men), men don't want skinny or fat, we want healthy, being skinny/curvy/fat/or what ever men want, is just a bonus.

@46 I never put people down for their weight. I do have a problem picking them up, however... Let the down vote beating commence!

#52 I think you and a lot of other commentators are missing the point. It isn't the priority of women to feel secure about the way men feel about them. So saying things like "well I like curvy girls, so don't worry" is missing the target. The point is that the offense comes from the fact that this man thinks OP really should give a damn about what he thinks of her. The whole point is that OP should feel free to resume her life without having men constantly giving unsolicited comments on her body, regardless of whether they are positive comments, or negative ones: they both are annoying and uncalled for, because it often makes women feel like they are only as good as their bodies and how men respond to them

Since when can't skinny girls have curves? I've seen some girls with big tits and slim bodies

24, can you MAKE the sarcasm font?

No need for a sarcasm font. Just be as pedantic and cynical as you can, and the sarcasm will just come through, like Oberyn's brain.

I'm slim, 115lbs, 5'5" and have size G breasts. We can most definitely be skinny with curves.

Im sorry im sorry but what the fuck is a size g?!? XD goddamn i feel bad for your back if yoir carrying some g's xD

#52 it's not about "it's what men want", it's about instincts and everyone prefers something different but instinctually the skinnier girl (not to skinny) would be ideal because of genes, flexibility, and other factors that we do subconsciously (women do it too)... Can't change thousands of years of instincts easily. Only thing that has changed is lifestyles and availability of fatty foods that have made this obesity problem.

Size G! Holy Mother of God! Time for Breast reduction surgery. FYI, curves really isn't just about having breasts. It's about the ratio between the size of the waist, hips, and chest. You could be fat and not have curves, just as you can be skinny and not have curves

That's not "slim-shaming" that's "whore-shaming." Besides, that comeback had nothing to do with the woman's physique, and had everything to do with what she said. Sheeeeeeesh. Take a note from OP's book and try not to be so sensitive.

Everyone is attracted to different body types. Most of it has to do with how genetically similar your possible mate it to you. Everyone just please stop arguing about what "the ideal female body type" is because it is ridiculous everyone has different tastes

It's good to have a good sense of humor!

He said it right dumbass

I know but a FML after this one the first comment said stupidly and I thought people would understand the joke

Who even refers to other FML entires? That alone is a fail in itself

It's better to bend with your knees anyways :)

Well it's good you laughed! That was like a "I don't give a fuck what you think" to that customer! But it was mean so I'm sorry for that!!

I've never heard that expression before. What does it mean?

jack_jill05 14

but, some people are hypermobile (like me) and no matter what my weight was I would probably still be able to touch the ground, so I mean either way...

One of the many situation where the customer isn't always right.

I feel like this is neither fyl nor ydi...

I am so confused.

They were telling the OP they didn't think she was able to bend over because of her weight. In a really douchy way.

Laughing it off instead of getting offended is the right thing to do anyways because there will ALWAYS be jerks that will make thant kind of comment. :)
