While her response was unsavory at least be proud, OP! You're doing something awesome! :D FYL for having to handle students like that, though.
I'm not sure if it was an awkward rejection to your cookies, or that she may be anorexic which is a much more serious problem.
Or possibly she's just sick of people selling stuff/asking for donations/etc. I haven't had the balls to say it but often when people ask I really wanna just shout 'sorry, I don't believe in helping others!' Kinda horrible but I don't believe in guilt donations and you do get sick of it when every third person you pass is asking for something.
She could have been anorexic, OP. You also should not be complaining about ts, as you do not know if there was anything going on with her.
no, because any actual anorexic person isn't going to announce that "hey guys! I'm anorexic. I won't buy your cookies because I'd rather starve myself! " is much more likely that she just didn't want to buy OP's cookies and make a really bad excuse instead of saying they didn't want any. kind of like saying "I'm not from here." when petition people ask if you're registered to vote. you don't want to say "yes, but I'm not interested," because you don't want to come off as rude, but you also don't want to actually talk to them because you'll probably end up signing the petition out of awkwardness even though you really have no idea what exactly their agenda is. I awkwardly signed a petition once that I ended up voting against, and then started getting emails saying "thank you for being a supporter of this measure.
I said an actual anorexic person wouldn't normally do that. you're the one stereotyping by saying "Well she openly said she doesn't eat food, so the only logical conclusion for why she said that is she's anorexic." anorexia is pretty serious, and most people who suffer from it don't want to acknowledge anything's wrong or that they're hurting themselves, let alone openly tell random strangers about it like it's no big deal.
