general rant

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
ok here it is...
i am now living in accommodation at university and am sharing with 6 other people, four of which go to a performing college so their figures are amazing anyways, and two other guys who do construction and architecture,

me and one of my flat mates were eating a really healthy dinner (salmon, brown rice and veggies) and this guy walks in who is on the construction course and turns around to me and says " o you should watch what you are eating you are getting fat....." i was like excuse me do you say this to all women and he said no just you. so i am standing there absolutely fuming (i dont think myself as fat, i am a size 12, granted i need to tone up abit) i am just so angry at how he just turned around and called me fat, he was apparently joking but all women that i know, if a guy turns around and says you are getting fat will be mightly offended by it. he doesn't even know me to make a statement like that!

    sounds like a bit of a dick. I'm certain aaaaall men know that they should never ever say "you're getting fat" to a girl!

    ignore him if you can, but dont let him know he's getting to you.

    I think you overreacted tbh. It was obviously a joke, given what you were eating.

    not a joke, or if it was it isn't funny. You have a perfectly normal figure, a size 12 is slim in this country. He should grow up!

    I used to get comments like that off total strangers when I lived in France and I've always been a size 8 at the most. I'd be in a shop buying an ice cream and they'd say " Don't eat that, you'll get fat!" Thats just their culture I think..
    You should just tell him to fuck off or something. If it was a good mate saying that then it could be taken as a joke but since you don't know him that well he was obviously just being a prick. Its very easy for someone to insult you and then just say "ooh I was joking!"

    Yeah, but she was eating vegetables. You'd have to be stupider than Forrest Gump to say that vegetables are fattening and be serious.

    I'd tend to agree with you - the meal was obviously a healthy one so chances are he was being ironic and didn't meant to cause you upset...
