Dear ignorant and hurtful idiots...thank you
Dear Man I Haven't Seen In Two Years,
When I say hello to you and go to shake your hand, please do not frown at me and say 'my god you've put weight on, haven't you!!' Your comment, in front of a work colleague and countless other people at the christmas sale, was hurtful and embarrassing.
How very rude of you to walk into work for the first time in 6 months and insult me. When you found out I am doing a degree in physics and astrophysics, I didn't really need you to say 'do they make space suits in extra extra extra large?' Trust me, my colleagues, who I am very close to, were absolutely disgusted and appalled by your comment and I can assure you we all think a great deal less of you for your crass and cruel humour.
However, I also want to thank you both, because your thoughtless and hurtful comments have encouraged me to get back on the right path and lose weight. I had planned to start in the new year, but now is as good a time as any!
