    so i went to work yesterday and was working with a guy i havent for seen for a few monthes.

    having handover in office he says " wheres Emma".

    now im sat next to him(and he is a practical joker) so i say to him "im flaming here sat next to you"

    he replys " your not Emma shes big and fat and you arent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I used to hate " you have a fantastic personality " remarks..... give me a fantastic tush anyday !!

    The worst I have had is " my God, you have lost weight" my reply modestly said " Oh thank you so much, but I still have a long way to go " reply back " You must have forgotten how huge you looked !"

    I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

    And Emma just give him a quick "accidental" kick under the desk lol.

    Have heard those 'nice face, shame about the rest of her' behind my back comments! I fall prey to it as well as I put on nice eye make-up, do my hair but then hide away in baggy clothes! Can't wait for this 'butterfly' to emerge! :eek:

    I like this thread it reminds be of the time when a nob cobbler cycled past me and shouted "you fat *******" he was so busy looking at me and shouting that he didnt see the pothole in the road and went over the handle bars. :)

    Ha i like name callers falling down pot holes! sounds like a plan.

    i also get from one girl at work, when we are all talking about clothes shopping that so and so shop do BIGGER SIZES for you Emma.

    now this coming from a women who is clearly a size 18 sqeezing herself into a size 14 and bits of her gut and a*rse hanging out from to tight jeans all over the place, she should be arrested by fashion police and locked away!!!!!!!!

    i should say to her "well maybe you should go there for BIGGER SIZES cause your rolls are hanging out"

    :p

    would love to see her face if you did that!!! :D

    I dont understand people in denial - well i do, i was myself for a little while!!! perhaps you need to say something positive, like....'ive got a top that would suit you - size 18, thats your size isnt it?' and see what she says - !!! If she keeps being negative to you - just be positive back , she will soon shut her mush! x

    I love it !!!!! Love it !!!! It reminds me of when our local, very unpleasant and disliked, village Bobbie rode his moped into a drainage hole that had been dug in the main street. He was eyeballing some imagined misdemeanor and whoops Gone !!!!!! How sad that we all chuckled before we went to his assistance.

    My, my how true it is that God works in mysterious ways !!!

    I know people are right when they say it's the "inside that counts", but I want someone to fancy me without knowing me, just look at me and that's enough!

    So I really get what you mean "you've got a great personality" feels like "..which is good because no-one would want you for your looks!"

    I had to laugh reading some of these replies, but it's sad that we live in a world of such narrow-mindedness! That was in reference to the idiots that make the nasty comments, not any of you lovely MM people! :)

    I'm staying realistic about my weight loss - it wouldn't matter how much weight I lost I'll never have a pretty face, but at least I'll look better than I do now! Those nasty people will always be gits though! Karmic retribution will kick in at some point, haha! :D
