a fat girl served me lunch at McDonalds

She said 'sorry about the wait.'

I said 'don't worry Chubby, you're bound to lose it eventually.'

OK...I'll try to "explain" the "uncool joke"....(and yeah, it's not cool to anyone overweight)....

The overweight lady at McDonalds said..."Sorry for the wait"...the guy said...(Being uncool, and switching "wait" or "weight")...said..."don't worry, Chubby!...You're bound to lose it...eventually"...
So the guy actually was annoyed about the long wait for his food, so he made the remark to the overweight lady....

Get it now?

Sorry, Robin. No offense to you, but, jokes like this are very insensitive to those of us with weight problems. Society doesn't stop and think about the REASONS some of us are overweight. They just ASSUME that it's because we're lazy, like too many Twinkies, and on and on.

I don't think you meant to offend, but the joke .....fell short.

Sorry.

Btw, assuming ... just makes an ASS out of U and ME.

You could appease us by posting an anti-conservative joke for once.

Weight and wait are phonetically similar.

You have good intentions and you rock in my book.. it's just that you had to explain the joke as well. IMHO.. this shows you condone bullying fat people based on posting then explaining this joke. Societal expectations leaves little room for us to breathe and we come here in this community not to be ridiculed. HTH.

Correct; they sound the same. It just doesn't excuse a person lack of tact.

That's right, Ms Bucket...this joke was told by a hearie, but not specifically said to a deafie....but it's good to know that some deafies got the underlying meaning....it happens in real life. Some will say.."what did that person mean when they said that"??

Yes, it's uncool...and no worries. I'm a little overweight myself, and if it was said to me specifically, the hamburgers probably would have wound up his azz.

But seriously, my apologies to everyone about this "wait"/"weight" joke....Seems I'm always sticking my foot in my mouth.

Don't worry. Everyone knows I am fat too, and I know you didn't mean any harm.

Only reason why I didn't say anything is because I made a snide remark like that when a person who was on the heavy side made a remark about someone who was morbidly obese. Why make such a rude comment when it's obvious you're [general "you"] isn't a role model either?

I don't engage in fat jokes often, but when the pot is calling the kettle black... these sarcastic remarks slip out.

So to condemn the joke would be condemning my way of pointing out of people's double standards.

I will call out a person if I feel he/she is inappropiate. When someone calls me out I appreciate it and keep it in mind not to repeat the mistake. When I call out the person, I always have in mind that we all are humans and prone to err in judgment.

I will share something with you all. Normally this joke would not bother me. I have a "TNT" anger response.. when one thing bothers me I let it add up and add up. Take a pop bottle and shake it. You open it and it overflows ... that's me. Bad bad way to be on this board when I'm feeling like this. My sincere apologies Robin, sorry and next time I will take the time to read and re-read.

Don't you feel bad either Mrs Bucket. On another day it might have been me who got mad.

We all have our off moments. Both you and Robin and bad is far outweighed by your good spirits.

I love you both.

We all have our days and our faux paux's. Just chalk it up to a learning experience for us all.

Ahhh, No, Ms Bucket, My apologies...ya know I love you all!...My mistake, really. I've such a dry sense of humor and need to keep it in check. Sometimes we all think some things are "funny" but to others they are not...no ill intent was meant at all...

I love happy endings! Glad we all learned a few things here.

RR has a dry sense of humor. I have seen it before. My years working in machine shops has jaded my views a bit, in that I tolerate tasteless jokes more than the average person. I know RR means well.
