As if 13 year olds acting like 13 year olds ain't annoying enough.....

She walked into the Chevron like she was walking onto a yacht..... (if you recognize those lyrics, you're old. like me.)

Bleached blonde hair. Tight care-bear shirt and a short Levi cutoff skirt. Just enough extra weight on her 20-something frame to make this outfit you usually see on a 7th grade girl look kind of like a poorly stuffed sausage. She walks in talking on her cell phone, loudly, with a sing-song voice that brought me right back to my Jr. High teaching days (well, it was only a year ago). Even at the counter we can hear her talking at the back of the store. Things like whatever!, omg, bff, inbd and other girly texting phrases. She goes through the entire checking-out process talking on her phone like this and as she walks out the door the guy I'm helping turns to me, holding back a laugh, and asks "What the hell was that?" An overweight 13-year-old that's old enough to buy beer. Thats what.
So, please keep in mind that when you are talking on your cell phone in public - it's not all that private, and many of us really don't want to hear it. And what we do want to hear, we just want to make fun of......

Have you ever noticed how many overweight women still dress like they're a size 4?
Yes, I'm plump. I admit it. But I cover my fat rolls. I do not wear skin-tight tank tops or belly shirts or shorts that leave all the cellulite exposed.
Okay, maybe you can't get away with posting something like this because you're a man, and it might be construed as sexism. So I'll say it for you: no one wants to see fat rolls; cover them decently.

Thanks Paperback, and that is the same for those guys with beer bellies that let them hang out from under their shirt and over their pants. Folks, if I wanted to see that I'd stand in front of a mirror and let it all hang out. It's not a matter of are you overweight (or underweight for that matter), it's a matter of should someone with 30 extra pounds dress like a model? Uh, no, male or female. My opinion.

I wish I was fat enough to act sexy.
