"Have you lost weight?" One of my coworkers asked recently. "Well I've been going to the gym..." I replied, not wanting to dissect the semantics of the question, as I have not lost weight but just made the same weight look better. I still know where the weight is.
"Oh, the gym. Never cared for that." Scornfully, she walks away.
Why is she mad at me for going to the gym? Was it a compliment before she found out that I don't magically make fat disappear? And I can tell she doesn't like the gym because she gets winded waiting for the elevator.
Ok, so there's my proof that as snarky as we may be here, there are those on the other side that are very bitter about it.
