People at my work do make comments about my food but tend to say things like — oh man, that smells great!  Or something like that.  We’re not overly critical in my place of work, and if someone has something delicious & healthy we’re very complimentary and ask for the recipe!

I would not appreciate it if someone made a comment like that guy!  How rude!

Yup! People always chime in with what I am eating. When I was doing weight watchers I made the mistake of telling a few work friends. So every time I ate anything they would ask me how many points it was, etc etc. Then if I ate something not so healthy, they would make comments. It was so annoying that I eventually stopped eating around them!!

At my old team people used to comment all the time.. and not in a nice way.. it was annoying. Now people generally don’t unless it smells really good… or bad.. haha.

I think sometimes co-workers think they are helping. I have this lady at work whos is a really healthy eater and very thin.
Whenever I would eat junk she would be like “Tranquility, that’s not good for you”

Not food related, I used to have a supervisor who signed up at the same gym as me (it was right beside work so it wasn’t stalkerish lol).
Well, everytime he would see me eat anything bad he would make a comment about me being chubby. And then he would always grab my arms with two hands and be like “fluffy”.

It got really annoying, but I know it was just because he felt comfortable with me that he thought he could do it.

yeah, i can’t freaking eat fish in this joint, because sassypants over here will always stick her nose up in the air and comment on the smell (and then heat up her equally stinky food!) saying it smells rotten. honestly, it doesn’t matter what you heat up – we’ll all smell it for like 5 minutes – get over it.

ALL.THE.TIME.

It doesn’t matter what I’m eating, there is this one particular lady (who seems to have a problem with food smell) that will always comment on my food.  It can be simple things like pasta, she’ll comment.  And it’s not a nice comment, it’s mostly “what’s that smell?” Sometimes, I even get comments about my coffee. ??

one of my co-workers always comments on what I eat for breakfast. He says that a protein bar and coffee is not “breakfast” and that I’m doing myself a disservice. nobody asked you bub! Besides, I can’t eat a big breakfast, it makes me sick.

@elliestan:

Wow you’re nicer than me! I just eat away whether she’s there or not.  She has an office, she can close her door 😉

YES! Even people who I supervised would say things like “Is that okay for baby?” when I was eating a donut “Ummmm yes, thanks for your concern since you’ve got no kids/experiences I can find and I’ve only gained the appropriate amount of weight” haha

YES!  But only from a male co-worker.  He’s like “what are you eating now?!”  (fata**) lol.  I’m like..whatever I want jacka**.

@elliestan: ugh!! We used to have a toaster until someone (I have no idea who), complained about the smell of TOAST. So, they got rid of the toaster.
