Haters Gonna Hate

Hi friends.
Today I wanna take a few minutes and talk about something that burns me.
Like BURNS me.
Yesterday I took a trip to the cafeteria to get a small soup to go with my turkey sandwich I brought from home.
 I get back to my desk and start to enjoy my lunch.
That’s when my normally peaceful lunch took a turn for the worst.
One of the asshats I work with made a comment…
“Eating a bit much there aren’t you Nikki?”
Ummmmm EXCUSE ME???
Lets just say it took ever last ounce of me not to get up and give said asshat a verbal lashing.
What I would have done to say something along the lines of…
“I’m sorry asshat but who the f*ck do you think you are commenting on what I am eating? 
Lets remember that I am the one who lost 130 pounds and you sir
are the fat slob who has gained 50. 
So I would highly suggest instead of investing your time and energy in what I am eating maybe turn that energy and concern to yourself and change your lunch options. 
While your at it I would LOVE to see you manage the feat I managed. 
Have a nice day!”
But what did I do?
I quietly sat at my desk held my tongue and ate my lunch.
That is after I posted to Twitter and Facebook…
“Why do people have a need to make comments on my food choices. I’m the one who lost 130 pounds I think know what I’m doing. Asshats!
So basically what I am getting at is lets remember the golden rule here shall we…
**Big shout out thank you to Ms. Networking for the illustrations!**
  Hugs, Nikki

    I love the illustrations! Gives the story a whole new dimension! I think everyone works with at least one person like that… I have two: “You can eat all that?” Why yes, unlike you that eats a half of club roll with turkey, I do enjoy a whole sandwich (or soup, or salad)!! Or my favorite while I am trying to eat, “How’s the diet going? If your hungry later, I have crackers and chips if you want them- just sayin'”. No thanks, i have healthy snacks for later. Grrr How many times do I have to say it’s a lifestyle change NOT a diet! Thanks for the support (asshat!)
    Some people just need to be in everyone’s buisness!! LOL

    You go girl! Some people haven’t learned, er… manners? yet. Even if you didn’t say anything, you still won.

    High five. I on the other hand would have lashed out, that or I’d have gotten even and reported it and made it look like the man was beating me with a stick. You go girlfriend!

    That’s okay. I love it when I tell people what I can eat. Then i tell them if I don’t eat, then my body is going to go into starvation mode and I will ultimately look like them. So boom that shuts anyone up. I’m a stinger sister! xoxo. 😉

    Wow, what an ass!!! A small soup & sandwich? Seriously? Kudos for keeping quiet, I don’t think I could have done it.

    I love this post though and all the perfectly coordinated memes!

    What a freaking dumbass. Like seriously? A soup w/a sandwich? Um, I have that like all the time. Good for you for biting your tongue. I might have tossed the soup on him. And you’re right; haters gonna hate. Keep it up girl!

    What a dumbass. Seriously? I have a soup and sandwich all the time. And the gall to comment after he gained weight? Ugh. I would’ve thrown my soup on him. You have more class than I do. Kudos and keep it up!

    what an absolute jerk-o! I can’t stand people like that! I don’t think I would have been as composed as you to not respond with something equally as rude. Holla for taking the high road!!

    Unbelievable that someone would comment on what you eat! Besides the fact that you lost all that weight- you are by far the fittest person I know!! WTF…

    I’m glad you were the bigger person in this situation.

    PS- I never heard the word asshat before but it’s now my fav!

    Umm, #1: Illustrations? Perfection.
    #2, and most important: you work your ass off every week. You have lost 130 lbs and kept it off. You, my dear, are freaking AMAZING! Jealous people suck and hate themselves and only know how to be stupid to others. I LOVE YOU!! 🙂

    This post cracked me up.. love the pictures! 🙂 They fit perfectly with the story.
    And I’ll admit I judge what people are eating, but one example is our overweight receptionist who tells me she wants to lose 10lbs and yet is drinking her Coke and eating her fried chicken and cornbread.. I won’t judge your food if you’re eating it for a purpose. And as a girl who works out, a girl’s gotta eat!

    OMG I love you, I love your cartoons, and I want to punch that “Asshat” in the face for you. You are AMAZING and he’s just jealous!!

    Why people feel that it’s okay to comment on what others eat, do, etc., is beyond me. People can be so classless and rude. I’m sorry you experienced it firsthand.

    But really? The illustrations are perfect. At least you have a good sense of humor. Even if an asshat commented on your teeny tiny amount of food.
