    This bus-stop ad for a health club in the Netherlands. It has a scale in the seat and displays the sitter's weight for all to see. We're sure Fitness First is expecting a huge spike in membership from this, but the effect is ruined the moment two people share the seat. That and, you know, trying to win people's business by humiliating them

    I dreamt about this last night :( Dreamt I was a school child and was forced to sit on it by the school bullies. The Headmaster made me wear a sandwich board with my weight displayed on it :cry:

    The other children were laughing as they walked by and chanting my weight. :cry:

    That is a horrid dream. :hug99:

    I had an experience like that at school though. It's stayed with me all my life since ... we had to measure height and weight as part of a maths lesson and my stats were there for all to see and I went hot with shame as I was the heaviest. This exercise (no pun intended) went on for about 2/3 days. I was 9 at the time. Unforgivable. So huge hugs to you. :hug99:

    I remember having this happen at school, though for me it wasn't too bad an experience. You see, it turned out I was the 2nd heaviest. I was just totally gobsmacked as I always thought there was nobody in the world fatter than me.

    I remember looking at the other girl and visually superimposing myself over her frame. Was I really smaller than her?? She wasn't so big?? Could it really be possible?

    I remember going home and telling my mum, but my mum said that they probably gave me a false reading so as not to upset me :cry: She was like that, my mum :rolleyes:

    Thankfully, at the school I teach at (and I assume other schools), height is recorded, but weight isn't allowed to be done in a lesson. Strictly against the rules :clap:

    Thats flipping horrible.

    I went to seaworld last year and at the dugong exibit thing there is a sensitive floor and you step on it and it tells you your weight and how many of you it would take to weigh the same as a dugong..............needless to say the girl i went with was a twig and there was no way i was stepping near it!

    I would NEVER join a gym that was willing to shame and humiliate people even before they were members!
