I agree with kiwi, actually.

The first comment, although rude, was true to a point.

The second comment was completely uncalled for.

I know eating in moderation is the key, but food choice is also important.

Yeah, McD's has healthier choices now, blah blah blah, but when kids are whining for McDonald's, it's certainly not usually for the chicken salad.

They tend to want the fried and cholesterol heavy items on the menu.
So, in that case, yeah, the Mom was saying no and although it was worded poorly, she had a valid reason for doing so.
I don't really have issue with what the mom was trying to do, but how she said it.

Eating at McDonalds will not make you ugly, and the way she said it implied that if you're fat, you're ugly.

I agree on that point as well.
I have lived my whole life with a weight problem, so I know how it feels to have people look down on you because they percieve fat as ugly.

I believe this mother was making the same equation.
(She could also have been meaning ugly as in greasy fried foods have often been associated with pimples, and pimples are considered ugly, but not that's not likely the case here.)
Too tired of living and too tired to end it. What a conundrum.

See, I have no self-control. I would've either went off on the putz, or just flat out refused to serve him, consequences be damned. Completely uncalled for, no one should have to put up with that.

People need to watch what they say to others. There are some words that are hurtful.

And it's also true that the salads at McDonalds aren't really very healthy, being full of high fat dressing and so forth. If I fancy a salad for lunch, I go to a salad bar; if however I'm PMSing and crave junk, I go to McD's.

As for ugly, personality wise these insulting people are the ugliest of all.

Man, I just don't care who anyone is, or how "overweight" they are. No one has any right to rip on another person about their weight. Maybe that person has some sort of problem and they can't help it? I've known people that had weight issues they just couldn't control. There are so many options out there for people if they choose. Where I do have a problem with it, is when someone complains that they can't lose weight, yet they keep eating fast food, sugar, and everything else under the sun, and aren't active.

I think of myself as overweight thanks to too much fast food in the past. (which relates to the first comment in Erik's post.) However, I never thought of myself as ugly because of it. Once I went up another pant size at work and started to really feel icky when I woke up, I decided, enough is enough. Time to do something about all this.

Now....I'm down 2 pant sizes, My arms, legs, and chest have all increased in muscle size and I'm eating healthier more now than I ever have been before. A strict diet of chicken, fish, brown rice, cottage cheese, whole grain breads, water, water, and more water. I still eat fast food, but only as a reward for a good week of keeping on my diet. And i never over do it.

But for anyone that thinks they are overweight and are feeling down by others attitudes on it. Think about this: I'd rather die happy and satisfied that I lived a full life and had some great food along the way, than die sad because I was afraid to eat some of the best tasting food out there for fear of gaining weight.

As for the first comment, although true to a point, it could have been worded differently.

As for the second comment... It takes all my self control not to punch people like that. I usually settle for a snide remark.

I have always been a firm believer of it's what's on the inside that counts!! An attitude like what this guy has makes him extremely unattractive.

Default asshats!!!

I agree people need to be more considerate, I would never dream, of going up to someone and saying, those things, God what an ass, well, karma's b*tch, at least I hope it is for this dude.
Anyway, i get this stuf for being thin (you can't win, and you are lucky to lose) among the comments I've gotten.
MY GOD do you ever eat?
Are you not eating?
Why are you so f----n' thin???
DAMN, you don't eat much do you?
God, eat something will you?
Jesus, eat something, for god's sake.
I really don't know if they are as hurtful as the one you mentioned, but, people need to stop judging others, because none of us areperfect we all have flaws. So pipe down asshats.
