What A Diabeetus

| Right | May 19, 2017

(I am talking to a regular customer, who is looking to lose some weight before her wedding, about a fitness professional I follow on YouTube who posts workouts and meal plans for free to help people. There is a customer next to me who is being helped by my coworker.)

Customer #2: *to me and [Customer #1]* “Are you calling her fat?”

Me: *startled* “No, I am not. We’re just talking about fitness and—”

Customer #2: “You should love your body. Don’t go telling her to change it to fit YOUR standards!”

Me: “I’m not telling her to—”

Customer #2: *to [Customer #1]* “Don’t you love yourself?”

Customer #1: “I do; I do. I just want to lose five pounds before my wedding.”

Customer #2: “No! That’s the media talking! You’re being brainwashed.”

Customer: “No, it’s my doctor talking. I’m all for body positivity but a health professional is telling me to lose weight.”

Customer #2: “When you die from diabetes, don’t come looking for help then!”

Customer #1: “I couldn’t because I’d be hypothetically dead.”

(Customer #2 sputtered and walked out without her change.)
