Sizism in the Workplace . . .

Red - "I give people a nickname based on the first thing I see about them."
Sean - "What was her nickname?"
Red - "Fatty McFatfat!"
Sean - (speechless)

Ah. You can take the weight out of the body but the sensitivity remains. How many people used to call ME Fatty McFatfat? Be honest - dozens? Hundreds? ALL of them?

For shame, Red (whom, in the interest of full disclosure) I do call red because of her red hair (yep, I'm a hypocrite like that))!
