I just went to get a snack from the vending machine at work. I’m very committed to working out regularly, and eating right – with the occassional treat.
This afternoon I realized I didn’t bring a snack for myself before I headed to the gym afterwork for my workout, so I was going to try to find something in the vending machine to tide me over so I am fueled for my routine at the gym.
Well, this woman that works on my floor comes into the break room at the same time as I do.
Then as I start putting my change into the vending machine, she pipes up with “Oh you know you shouldn’t be eating that. You won’t be able to fit into your wedding dress!”
Excuse me? 1. That isn’t any of your business 2. I’m a healthy, active person 3. That is probably 1 of a total of 3 times I’ve ever used the vending machine at work in over a year. 4. Keep your comments to yourself.

I can’t believe she said that. I hope she doesn’t fit into her pants tomorrow.

Some people have no sense.
I hope you found something supertasty, though!

REALLY? I mean really? Wow. I don’t know if I could respond to that without getting fired! Lol. How ridiculous! I bet she went and bought a coke and a candy bar right after you left too…psht.

I got that ALL THE TIME! And it drove me insane! They have mini birthday parties here at work, and they always have cake. I’ve never been a huge cake eater…and anytime I passed it up, someone said, “Oh…that’s right, she’s a bride! She has to fit into her wedding dress!”
Actually, no…I just don’t like cake. And if I wanted a piece, I would have one, thank you very much!

Typical foot-in-your-mouth comment that I think every bride to be has to hear!! So annoying!! People are just dumb sometimes.

I always remember what Ann Landers used to say when people either said or asked something inappropriate.
“Why are you asking (or saying) that?”
It totally turns the comment back on them.

Totally inappropriate. I got this all the time too in conjunction with pressure to eat cake my coworkers were eating. I was like “Make up your minds!!!”
