@DuckEBee:  Let me ask you this…was the clerk overweight??

Sounds like she was taking out her anger at someone else on you.

@DuckEBee:  I would venture to say this person was overweight?

I don’t get the commenting on people’s weight bit.. whether your overweight or thin, don’t make disparaging comments about it.

Telling a thin person to go eat something is just as hurtful as telling an overweight person to not eat something.

@DuckEBee:  Oh man, that’s such an inappropriate thing to say it’s almost comical. I would have walked out. I don’t know if that would really be considered the mature thing to do, but I wouldn’t have been able to help myself.

@DuckEBee:  I didn’t like picking out BM dresses. I felt like stores were snottier and less helpful.

@DuckEBee:  Unreal. What an effing bitch. I’m so glad you didn’t give them your business! Kudos to you for being confident enough in your body to not let that douchewad bring you down.

That is so so so rude, and says something about the insecurity of the person working there.

@DuckEBee:  I guess I’m confused how the clerk made that connection to begin with?????

They weren’t there….you said you’re all about the same build and they come back with that comment? It’s just weird.

Wow, I really don’t understand how people can work in a customer service capacity and think it’s okay to say something like that. Did you get her name? I’d call and tell the manager, because that’s AWFUL. 

And it’s not like you had 8 bridesmaids who happened to be thin. You have 3. One is your FSIL. Even not knowing your athletic background, it’s not a crazy coincidence.
