So, I supose this would fall under a “vent.” I just seriously cannot believe the things that people feel entitled to say. I’m chubby (around 240 lbs, size 22ish depending) :3 I’m okay with my shape for the most part (of course everyone has their days, right?) and like to think I’m pretty confident on those days. I also like to flirt, which FI is fully aware of and okay with. 😀 And I work front desk at a hotel.
So, that background aside, I was flirting with a guy today who was pretty cute, while he was checking rates for rooms. He had complimented me on a couple of things like my hair, eyes, etc, and I was feeling pretty good 🙂 Then he hits me with this line:
“You’re kind of on the fat side…but you have a cute face which makes up for it.”
Really. Seriously. My face was like O____O Wat?
Makes up for it? Makes up for it? As if there’s anything to make up for, dude. As.if.
I’m just in shock that someone would think this is acceptable as a compliment. As if I didn’t know I was fat. As if being fat is such a horrendously unsexy thing that you have to have extra-cute attributes to somehow atone for it.
So yea, just thought I would share that and get it off my chest. People. 😛

@Vidya: WOW! I would have replied with “yeah, I’m fat, but what are you gonna do about that face?” What a jackhole

What a dick. You should have told him “I can lose weight, but you’ll be an asshole for life”.

Who the F does he think he is? Who says that!

@sara_tiara: This is what I was going to say.
Or you could have said “Me? Fat? Noooo…this is an allergic reaction. I tend swell up whenever I get too close to an asshole.”
I can’t stand people who say these types of things. They’re basically saying in spite of the fact that you should be ugly, because you’re fat…you’re not so bad! It’s bullshit. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, skinny or fat.

Oh my god, this reminds me of a time when I was in a bar with friends and a drunk guy was flirting with me and after taking a second to look me up and down proceeds to tell me that if I just lost 10-15 lbs every guy in that bar would be all over me because I had the most beautiful face…!!! HA!!!!! I just started laughing so hard at him and got up and walked back over to my friends table. Men. Are. Idiots.

This is like off the charts rude. I can’t imagine someone saying that to another person. Did he think it was some ridiculous kind of compliment or what?

Smooth, real smooth. He must get a lot of action with his game (not). What an ass – good thing you didn’t end up going on a date with him and finding out what a dick he is after wasting more of your time.

I would have tried to think of something to say about him. “You are kind of on the ugly side but I guess I’ll hit on you out of amusement..” What an A$$. I hope you quoted him an expensive price!

@MrsBlueSeptember: Oh my goodness, that is the best response! 😀
@StuporDuck: Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to say. But I was like, “Excuse me??” He did think he was making a compliment – I couldn’t do anything but laugh at him at that point.
@eloping: haha, Nah, not awkward at all. 🙂 Flirting’s fun and it’s always harmless. I’m more of a flirt than FI – he’s very introverted. But he does it too. We have our boundries and flirting falls within them. 😀
