Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about fat talk:
A coworker told me she does not want to work fast because she might get fat like me!
Signed, Feeling Humiliated
Dear Feeling Humiliated:
The remark your coworker made was certainly mean and rude. It sounds like the rudeness you hear from a 13 year old girl when she’s in a fight with another 13 year old! Unfortunately, when people are immature in their thinking or when they are just angry and wanting to hurt people, the most obvious thing to say is something personal, in this case about your weight. She probably knew it was a jab that would get to you more than almost anything else.
