    Attention all fat people... please be aware of your surroundings.

    When you are standing in a doorway/hallway/other high-traffic area and someone says "excuse me" - they aren't politely interrupting you, they are politely letting you know YOU NEED TO MOVE YOUR FAT ASS OUT OF THE WAY. And not one of those little half steps... you're fat, you take up more room than skinny people. Skinny people can often times get away with the half step - FAT PEOPLE NEED TO MOVE FARTHER... you take up more space. This isn't mean, this isn't rude - it's basic science.

    Being fat isn't an excuse to be stupid.

    They take little half steps cuz they're afraid of toppling over.

    I think the title should have been, "Attention fat people who are also stupid".

    :stupid:

    I think I might print this rant out and tape it to the outside of my office.

    Fat isn't an excuse for being stupid, but smart people tend to look in the mirror and say "holy ****, I'm getting fat. I shouldn't eat as much". Stupid people look in the mirror and think "I'm getting fat, I think I'll eat a large pizza and a stick of butter".

    Well some people do need to considering losing weight because it is/has been a problem and its extremely not healthy. And its said to hear about people that eat 10,000 Calories a day and need a crane to get out of bed.

    it's not just the fat people its stupid people, the fat people just stand out because they take up more room. Like people that just stop in the middle of a high traffic area to chat with their yuppie friends. STUPID PEOPLE SUCK. Now that i think of it's it's not stupid people it's just the inconsiderate people. So Fat Stupid Inconsiderate people suck! ok i'm done i feel better now.

    I like the dumbasses in the grocery stores that look at their items while holding their carts in a way to take up the whole aisle. I've found that not saying anything but charging them at a sprint pushing a full cart gets them to move quickly.

    Yeah, now that the shopping cart thing has been brought up, I would like to add old people into the mix. I have to go to Costco today and am dreading it because i know it will be full of slow old people. maybe they should make designated shopping times so people who only have a certain amount of time to do things during the day can get them done. And not be held up by old people who think going to Costco to chat with the equally old sample ladies is a social outing!!!!! :angry:

    Thats exactly what i was talking about, they stop at the end of the aisle with the cart across the aisle and stand there. then when you ask them to move they get a pissy! I'll take you recomendation on charging them!

    Do we even have any fat people on this forum (other than MMike's cheezy-puff-eating-tons-of-fun-girlfriends?)

    I thought there was some kind of check and weigh-in at the door

    What's worse is the girls at the mall who decide to gather in entrance to a store to talk making it impossible to get by. Then you say excuse me, and they'll either ignore your, or scramble chaotic like chickens with their heads cut off making it even more difficult to get by. Take it to the food court biatches!!

    I was just in CVS and a mother-daughter fatty combo were parked like a double-wide in the makeup aisle trying to decide whether to buy the purple or the pink sparkly eyeshadow. Later they were behind me in line and suddenly started raiding the candy at the checkout counter.

    I would fall under the category as "fat." But I don't act like a fat person. I keep right up with the others in my spin class 2x a week. And for the most part people don't have to tell me to move because i am not stupid enough to stand in the way in the first place!!!

    I was on a LAX shuttle once and when the shuttle stopped, I had luggage that I put in the shelving, to give people more space. This guy starts pushing into me while I was trying to remove my luggage, I told him I needed to get off as well and had to get my bag and my golf clubs off the shelf. He continued to push... I could see that people around me saw that I was getting pissed, I finnally shoved my oppiste elbow into his chest just below his throat and yelled heads as I swung my clubs twords his head. He ducked and the clubs just swished over his head. He had this look on his face like he thought I was going to kill him or something. I just wanted to get off in a ordely manner. I was suprised by my actions and almost felt bad for the guy... almost. I did have a big grin on my face all the way to New Mexico on the flight though.
