Today, I saw an attractive, thin woman eating a salad. Trying to be smooth, I approached her and told her that she didn't need to eat so scarcely, because she was beautiful. She promptly gave me a dirty look and informed me that she was a vegetarian. FML

Same thing different taste


I dunno I still think that counts as a compliment

Definitely still a nice thing to say. I'm veggy, and I don't have salad often. I certainly wouldn't call it a meal!

That was still a nice compliment, whether she's a veggie or not. And that was really rude of her to be so venomous to him.

I agree that it counts as a compliment. As a retarded dumbfuck anti-smooth compliment, to be precise.

I don't understand how that simple comment could be so offensive to a vegetarian, unless it was a very guilty, defensive vegetarian. I guess I'm just like all the other dumb ***** who think it's a compliment, and who are wrong for thinking logically that it was a compliment. I'm going to go die now.

Acousticpixie14 6 I said, so what if she was a vegetarian? I eat salads all the time and I'm not a veggie. So should he have assumed that since she was eating a salad she MUST be one? That's ridiculous.

No he shouldn't. Point is, even if she's not, the compliment is still retarded cause she might be eating a salad just cause she ******* LIKES it.

this was more of a "FML people are making excuses not to talk to me again"

it's rude to insult her choice of dish. it's rude to assume she's on a diet. it's just plain RUDE to make an unsolicited evaluation of a complete stranger's meal!

He never actually assume that that was why she was eating a salad. He was simply making a compliment out of it. I'm a woman, and I'm saying that that wasn't rude, so I'm not just some ignorant man that doesn't understand. Anyone who thinks he was wrong to say that is really just being over sensitive.

#1 rule of being smooth- Opening with a line about a girl's appearance will rarely (if ever) get you anywhere. It's easy, standard, and unimpressive. Another rule of being smooth- Never comment on a woman's weight or what she eats unless she brings it up first or if you know her and are commenting that she lost weight. Rules man. Gotta follow them or you'll just get more dirty looks.

I thought he said that because he thought she had an ED?

#44 it wasn't rude of her. it was rude of him to solicit her attention when she is just trying to eat a salad. I wouldn't call it a compliment. More like an obnoxious way to try and talk to a woman who is enjoying her salad in PEACE.

No. 286 I agree with you, it's not a compliment, it's a rude statement. I love salads and I eat them regularly even if I'm not vegetarian, no one really has any right to comment on my choice of food. How would you react if anyone said you shouldn't eat a Pizza because you're beautiful? It's the same thing just with different dishes.

how can you tell someone is a vegetarian? They'll tell you.

Not true. Most of my friends don't find out until we go out to eat.

run the other way! not always a freak, but usually means either a PETA person or a health nut, aka Fanatically stupid, or plain old stupid, respectively, since meat can actually be healthy, imagine that

263- I'm sure that meat *could* be healthy, but it usually isn't since they pump the animals full of all kinds of unnatural hormones and chemicals. Not to mention the bacteria and poop that frequently get into the meat when they slaughter the animals. So don't call someone stupid just because they don't want to eat hormones and E. Coli.

idiot why would you even care... leave them alone

YDI for being a dick and judging her on hat she was eating. Not everyone has to eat burgers and steaks. Salads are just as delicious and alot more healthier. Just because a girl eats a salad doesn't mean they think they're fat or on a diet.

How is complimenting her and saying she's beautiful a jerk move? I thought it was kind of sweet. He wasn't judging, just making a pick up line.

More healthier makes no sense. It's either more healthy or healthier. FYL.

"more healthier" makes fine sense. it may not be grammatically correct, but it makes sense.

Where the **** do you get salad that tastes as nice as burgers? :<

True, lettuce is mostly water... It's... Just not unhealthy. Healthy food involves all kinds of stuff, like vitamins and whatnot.

how dare this jewbanger call a girl beautiful I am sincerely outraged.

I'm sorry #5, but I have revoked you privilege to ever speak in the presence of another human being, ever again, for fear their head might explode.

#108: Are you revoking 5's right of speech because of his/her grammar skills (or lack thereof)? If so, then your comma splices hurt my eyes. Oh, and you used "their" rather than "his/her."

#81, What the **** is a 'jewbanger'??? Is it a womanizer that only ***** jewish girls?

Ok first off, 5 is retarded. It was an easy mistake to make and he's certainly not a dick for making it. Second, 36, more healthier makes absolutely no sense since it isn't grammatically correct. And third, 131, their use of their was absolutely correct seeing as 108 wasn't talking about a specific human being.

And you have a children's movie character as your picture. I guess they do teach English at a decent level in 3rd grade.

it's actually "more healthful". juuuust sayin.

20- it's a jerk move because as he was complimenting her, he was also implying that he assumed she was anorexic or had some other issue with her body because she wasn't eating a "proper meal", just a salad. And telling a thin person they need to eat more is just as insulting as telling an overweight person to eat less.

So much anger. #5 sounds like a vegetarian. . .

take your shoes off and throw the baseball

YDI for having a terrible pickup line. "You're not fat" isn't the best way to scrape acquaintance with someone.

But the way he said it wasn't just implying that she shouldn't be on a diet because she isn't fat, he was saying she was beautiful, not just "not fat"

I agree. But I think the bigger problem is that he automatically assumed that when a girl eats a salad, she is eating scarcely. Salad is great. I can say with certainty that I'm not eating very healthily most of the time, but even I like to get a salad from time to time, just because I like it.

Also, some salads can actually be pretty filling, since you can put just about anything in them. I've had salad with stuff like tofu, nuts, or portobellos, that really fill you up.

you should've offered to toss her salad

fthku 13

Suchagooon- It means brainstorming. So if you need to toss the salad, it means you need to brainstorm. OP, FYL for hitting on a bitchy girl, YDI because it IS quite rude to say what you said. And no, it doesn't matter if she was vegetarian or not. You came off as more creepyjust weird to me.

I bet she could even drink two percent milk if she wanted.

I think #11 was making a reference to Napoleon Dynamite.

Tina, you fat lard, come get some dinner!
