Sweet & Lowdown

Sadly, not everyone shares Angela‘s compassion for the portly.

At Julie’s office in Alexandria, Virginia, one employee decided to formalize his or her grudge against artificial sweeteners (and us fatties who love them) with a little help from the reception desk label-maker. Protests Julie: “Hey, some of us just like our sucralose, okay? Or maybe we’re diabetic!”

How about going to the gym instead?

(In one office break room in the Twin Cities, meanwhile, the sugar packets themselves do the talking…)

USE REAL SUGAR...if you know what's good for you

And across town at a different office in St. Paul, the office manager (“a fitness freak,” according to our submitter) takes the (relatively) constructive approach with her fellow employees — who are, our submitter agrees, “a bunch of lard-ass geeks who don’t exercise.” Um, thanks?

    Maybe people don’t want to marinate their teeth in sugary coffee or tea? I personally can’t stand the mouth-feel of sugary drinks, regardless of their caloric content. Of course, I’m not petty enough to worry about what my coworkers should and should not be eating… just whether or not they’re working. Ha!

Yeah, you’re probably right, without the coffee the drug traffic wouldn’t even exist… Damn you, coffee! We could achieve World Peace without you!

      I drink the occasional cup of coffee because it tastes good and it’s good for you in moderation. If you need 5 cups of coffee just to get through your day then you have a problem but one cup or less per day is good for you.

      Also I’m a vegan gym bunny who hasn’t touched alcohol in over a decade and has never smoked or done any illegal drugs so I’m kinda OK with having one minor vice.

    Personally, I subscribe to the theory that by drinking an artificially sweetened drink with my Super Sized Big Mac and XL fries, the negative calories in the drink negate the calories in the food. And if you know what’s good for you, you will continue to allow me to believe this… because I may look nice, but I’m only artificially sweetened.

    I tell passive aggressive people like that:

    Jerk: You’re fat.
    Me: I get to eat ice cream any time I want with no guilt.
    Jerk: Yeah, that’s why you’re so fat!
    Me: [smile] And I enjoy eating it. Just think, you can’t. You can never have what I have.
    Jerk: … Yeah, being a lard ass! I jog 2 miles a day! I work out at Gold’s Gym. I have an attractive spouse!
    Me: [ignoring them, but lowering my voice to a whisper] Anything. No limits. I don’t even have to think about it.
    Jerk: Yeah, well.. you can’t walk or… you’re FAT! Fatty fat fat fat–
    Me: [ultra-calm and steady whisper] Anything. When I want. How I want. [whisper in their ear] I am free…

    This usually puts most insecure fitness nuts in a blind rage. I’d say about 9/10 people who make unsolicited comments about me being fat have a severe guilt complex stemming from childhood rejection. They are not telling YOU to stop eating sugar as much as they are telling THEMSELVES. All I do is stir up that internal conflict until they lose their temper. They are remarkably unstable people.

    That being said, it’s not healthy to be overweight, BUT that’s a personal choice and mind your own damn business.

      I like to tell the health nuts that they’re going to die some day, too. 90% of the time, they ignore me in their unwavering belief that if they just eat healthy and exercise enough, they will cheat Death.

      It’s the other 10% that make it worth it. The ones who realize I’m right. The look of panic that comes into their eyes can really make my day.

      But then I’m kind of mean like that.

      I don’t ever think I’m cheating death. I could die tomorrow for all I care. I just want to feel energetic and be able-bodied while I AM in my corporeal state.
      But I still eat ice cream. Mmmmm. Because ice cream is freezing cold sex.

      Ice cream is good for you! It has no calories! A calorie is a measurement of heat, and ice cream is cold… :D

      …likes DOL’s logic.
      I work out. I consider myself fit. I may live a little longer but accept that statistically the extra time will be spent in the gym or on the running trails. Most of us who work out do it to feel better. Most of us feel good enough not to rudely comment on anyone else’s appearance or physical fitness. The cat who is compelled to make such comments deserves grig’s mind f**k. They’re asking for it, man. They truly perpetuate the stereotype that us good looking people can’t be nice.

      BTW, I once thanked an airline attendant for being very helpful by complimenting her for “dispelling the stereotype.”
      She, being of a complexion associated with a minority ethnic distinction asked “what stereotype is that?”
      “The stereotype that good looking people can’t be nice.”
      Got a huge laugh, an invite to business class and what seemed to be extra warm smiles from the rest of the crew.
      Thanks for letting me share.

    The gym costs money, but the Splenda packets I steal from the office are free.

    That’s a pretty bitter custom sticker.

    Me, I drink Diet/Light drinks because I like the taste better than regular ones. But I don’t like Sweet ‘n Low at all – it’s too sweet. I go for Splenda instead… mmm.

    Why do you guys get so many submissions from the Twin Cities? Are we THAT passive-aggressive here?

    These are great! I love how our society values being rude, narcissistic, and condescending over the value of kindness and tolerance to our fellow neighbors and co workers. Yes please do promote the Target coupon at the expense of others feelings! Hey do they have any self help tapes there other than weight loss? You know the kind that tell you how to relate to others on a level that isn’t superficial? “How Not to be a Douchebag in 10 Easy Steps” on sale now at Target with special bonus tape “Minding Your Own Business Made Simple”

    I’m pretty sure the first note counts as creating a hostile workplace.

    Passing on the coupons, though, that’s thoughtful.
