The Ignorancce of Mankind

Monday, February 20, 2012

So my husband Barry once weighed aout 450 lbs. In 2001 he had open Gastric Bypass surgery. He got down to about 250 lbs. He had poor habits, over eating, drinking, not exercising, etc..., and he wound up stretching the the "thumb" sized stomach out to a large man's fist sized stomach, so now he really gets no geood effects of the surgery, only the bad ones, the plugged up feeling, dumping syndrome, etc. He went back up to 363 lbs and over the last year and half to 2 years has dropped back down to 257 as of this weekend. 2 nights ago, he went into work, and a couple sitting at the bar looked at him and the man said "Who the hell is THAT?", his wife replied, " How the hell should I know, I guess the last chef was too skinny, cuz it looks like they replaced her with another fat ass" Barry heard every word of it. A few years ago, Barry prolly would have went to jail for assault over this. This time, he went on into the kitchen and stewed over it for a few hours then reported it to his boss. Today the guy cornered him in te bathroom, looking for a fight, and Barry mentioned to him that if they think he's a fat ass now, they should have known him a few years ago, and the dick heads reply was "Looks like you still got a ways to go to me". How devastating. I wish the guy would have laid his hands on B , so B could have wiped the floor with him.

    It's terrible the way people assume things about others and make horrible, mean, awful comments. Kudos to your DH for working so hard and keeping his cool!
