Last summer my fluffy sister and fluffy me were on the hunt for dresses to wear to my daughter's wedding. Unbeknownst to us we made a shopping faux pas and entered a store that did not carry fluffy girl sizes. I thought, "Alright girl! Just play it cool." As my sister and I perused the store the young, snotty sales lady walked towards us and in her most smirky voice said, "Can I help you?" We asked her to point us towards the dresses (of course leaving out dresses in our size). Then she had the NERVE to ask what size we were looking for...RUDE!!! I remember thinking, "Seriously???? You had to go THERE with us????" So my smart sister and I avoided answering it and told that snot we were unsure. She pointed us towards the back of the store and off we went. As we headed towards the back, my sister and I felt every eye was on us and we knew everyone must have been thinking, "What are THOSE FLUFFY GIRLS doing in a skinny girl store???" We shopped a little longer and then quietly sneaked out. When we got out of there we were beyond FURIOUS!!!

This weekend I enjoyed some awesome sister time with this same sister. She and I are on our way to a healthier lifestyle. She had the sleeve a month ago and is dropping weight like crazy! I too am WELL on my weigh to losing weight. My weigh in day is Saturday, and I'm anxious to see how much I have lost this month. Anyway, we got to reminiscing about that HORRID experience last summer. We made a pact that when we get to our ideal weight we are going to have our PRETTY WOMAN moment. We are going to waltz into that skinny girl store with many, many bags in tow. We will sashay our skinny hiney-bo, fanny-boos straight to that snotty sales lady and say, "Remember us fluffy girls? You work on commission right? BIG MISTAKE! HUGE!" Then we will shake our skinny butts right out the door with our heads held high and our chests puffed out. LOOK OUT SKINNY GIRLS! HERE WE COME!!!

    I havenever understand any customer service related personnel who don't seem to like dealing with customers. Not good for the store that employs them!

I hope you have your moment and relish it.

    The same thing would happen at Lane Bryant if a skinny woman walked in and asked to see the size 2s. Smaller women are NOT better than heavier women, just smaller. I didn't lose my weight to be superior, just smaller. There are stores I can't shop in because the clothes are intended for young people; sparkles and sequins and the like. I don't feel denigrated, it just doesn't sell to me. There will always be a store that has something I want. God Bless America!
