Tackling All The Weighty Issues

| Friendly | April 15, 2014

(My cousin and I are out walking one afternoon, and we are approached by an older woman who neither of us had met before. Ignoring me completely, she hones in on my cousin who, while not skinny, isn’t really what you’d call overweight.)

Stranger: “Hi, there! I just wanted to let you know about this group we’re running at the local leisure centre for teenage mothers. I have some leaflets here, in case you want to take a look?”

Cousin: *slightly gobsmacked* “Uh, thanks, but I’m not pregnant…”

Stranger: “Oh. Right.” *pause* “We also run a group for teenagers with eating disorders!”
