Today, I ran into a former co-worker who I hadn't seen in years. She was raving at how I hadn't aged a bit, but before I could thank her she said, "But, you know, chubby people age better." FML

52-I believe #2 was trying to make an assertion that assumes the coworker is fat in a "funny" way so as to receive the validation of the community. It failed though.

It may be a fact, but the other lady doesn't have to be a bitch and say it out loud. You know what they say, connect your tongue to your brain before speaking. Think that applies to you and the OP's co-worker.

It's not really a "fact" either. The "chubby" people I work with all appear 10-15 years older than they really are. It's an opinion (and one that should have been kept to the coworker's own self).

Just because something is true it does not mean you should just go out and say it. Especially if it will hurt someone's feelings. She should have just said that op has not aged a bit and left it at that. Also, everyone has their own idea of what is/ is not chubby or fat.

Or even lose weight.

But talk about a backhanded compliment. Geez. I suppose you could have made a bitchy comment about how you barely recognized her because she aged so much, but I"m sure you're better than that.

Alright, I get it, I misspelled "lose," but in my defense my phone's spell check/ auto correct is over sensitive. Or at least that's what I'm blaming it on :)

There is nothing wrong with being a little chubby, as long as you don't have health issues. If you still look young, and are very healthy ( I am assuming you are ) then there is not a downside. Be proud of yourself girl. Hold your head up high, and be proud of your curves. Have a nice day OP. :3

Best thing to do is to shrug it off. If anything, you should pity people who lack self control and don't know when to shut the hell up. It gets them into a lot of trouble. This lady will realize it sooner or later.
