Sara; Grr… pissed off. I had a shit week again!!
Billy; Whats happened!
Sara; I was in work the other day, and the canteen staff are always quite abrupt with me. I sometimes wonder if its me? I do keep asking you lot but you seem to disagree so I’ll go with that, Anyway. There’s something about me that they dislike, because I got eyeballed for just smiling? Honestly right. I was in the queue the other day, and this huge six foot plus security guy, and about six foot wide was laughing and joking with the cashier, he ordered five sausages, five bacon, three eggs, three black pudding, two slices of toast, fried brad, beans, tomatoes and mushrooms. honest to god he had half the farm on his plate right. The canteen assistant was laughing and flirting at his joke, which wasn’t funny. She was asking him as she pilled on the beans that dripped down the mountain, if he wanted more. I was gobsmacked at the size of his breakfast! The she turns to me and looks me up and down with a scornful eye, I knew instantly that she took a great dislike to me, her tone of voice changed and she went ‘want to you want!’ with a sour tone. So I said sarcastically, erm, Ill have two slices of lettuce, half a tomato, three beetroot, a slice of onion and oh, and go easy on the dressing, I’m watching me figure! She eyeballed me with a look of death!! I couldn’t believe it, then fat Larry at the cashier station turns round and goes ‘that’s not gonna fill you up love, you need a bit of meat on your plate cos you need some meat on your bones!’ I looked over and goes, ‘oh, as opposed to half the farm you’ve got on your plate! I think your eating for the both of us buddy, and the rest of the queue! I slammed my fiver on the counter and put my hand on my hip! Cor, it really pissed me off, they way she scowled at me and the fat bastard got all her flirtatious charm? Great service hey!
Julie; MIAW…. Lol, I love it, tonight’s the night we’re gettin the claws out!
Chrystal; Oh that’s blatant jealousy, obviously cos you’ve got a skinny figure!
Sara; I know!! But did she have to be so friggin rude!
Billy; Get your own back!
Julie; People are rude hun, she was probably thinking, ‘oh you skinny cow, you think you can swan in here and eat anything without adding a single gram to your hips and I have to ration my food because I’m a fat!’ Don’t let her get to you babe!
Sara; It still pisses me off! Her attitude towards me?
Julie; Next time someone pisses you off like that, find Mark and get your zen on with him, sit under the tree in the garden!
Sara; Good point Julie, Only I’m Just too tense to breathe properly right now!
Chrystal; Me too, only I’m too fat!
Julie; I had a similar experience once. was in the staff canteen the and yeah, the staff were big girls too. Not that I’m critisizing big girls or anything, but what happened proves a point. I forgot to clear my plate away when I had a slice of toast and a coffee the morning before right, so the next time I was in the canteen, the assistant said to me as she made my toast, ‘just to remind you that over there, is where you put your plates when you’ve finished!’ I looked round and saw the tall trolley where the trays are stacked! then I thought, ‘oh shit, I must of forgot to clear my plate away? I apologised politely and she goes, ‘lots of people miss it too, it’s because it’s at the front here. So I kept my trap shut, thinking I was upsetting the chef! and then she goes ‘it’s one less job for us to do you see,’ I nodded and left it at that. Then when I sat down and thought, hold on a minute, It is your job! I watched her as she left the counter, as it was quiet, then sat down to read the paper and chat with her colleague for half an hour!
So when I finished my toast, I left my plate and cup on the table and walked off!
Julie; I was being a cow, even though I was doing her a favour, I thought she could do with the exercise…. Sometimes you gotta be cruel to be kind. anyhow, the extra exercise will keep their weight down!
Sara; Do you know what, tomorrow I’m gonna order three pieces of cake, three chocolate bars and start ripping the wrapper off the chocolate as I’m in the queue. Tell her I’ve got a ravenous appetite. Stuff my face with loads of cake and chocolate.
Billy; Can you handle all that in one sitting.
Sara; No, I’ll probably be sick after eating half of it, I can just see it now, after stuffing my face Ill be throwing the contents up in the car park?
Julie; Yeah but think of how much it will piss off the assistant’s!
Chrystal; Noooo. Don’t do that, you work next to the eating disorder ward?
Sara; Good point Chrystal. Knowing me after all that sugar, I’d definately throw up, can you imagine it, the ward sister might think I’m purging, she’ll come marching out the hospital chasing after me, get me into a head lock, and frog march me onto the ward!
Chrystal; They might spit in your food if you upset them!
Billy; Oh don’t girls…. my ribs are hurting from laughing!
Julie; It isn’t all black and white though, there’s millions of people trying to keep their weight down.
Billy; I’m one of them?
Julie; No you’re not Billy you’re cuddly, there’s a difference… Anyway, don’t take it personally, it’s a generalisation. Obesity is so rife these days, it’s getting way out of hand. I’ll tell you a case I had once, and this is true right, so take from it what you want. And, It’s not an attack on fat people, but another perspective that I experienced which might shed some light as to why there is so much prejudice around!!
It was a Woman, mid forties. Obese, and no, she didn’t have Prada Willi syndrome! She was about twenty five stone, and had a fall at home. After all tests were carried out, with no sprains or broken bones, the woman was returned home with £6’000 of equipment to support her, along with four hourly calls of three assistants. But, after one night at home, she was unable to stand when hoisted and the care staff were then struggling with even getting her in the hoist! Yet when she was discharged fro hospital she could stand and wasn’t hoisted in hospital!!! Anyway, after an assessment with the experts and an hour of encouraging her that she can stand on her feet with support, she wailed all the histrionics she could until the psychiotherpaist gave up and mission was aborted. The physio reported back to the team saying she just didn’t want to stand again and we couldn’t force her!
However, when we all went to wash our hands, you wouldn’t believe what we saw. She had nine packs of cakes stacked up in the kitchen, so by assessing her environment, she was too comfortable watching tv all day, now she has three care staff attending to what she could do herself! So she wasn’t helping herself in any way? Only causing a strain on an already strained service!!
Sara; Oh wow, I see what you mean. I saw once on the news that it took four hours, to take a window out, with the fire, and ambulance service, to get this one chap to hospital? The staff and time needed was shocking, the repair to the building too? I did sit back and wonder why his care staff kept feeding him, surely if he was unable to get out of bed, he can be restricted with his diet?
Julie; No, it doesn’t work like that Sara, human rights and all that? Plus, there’s the prada willi disorder, where the brain and the stomach don’t recognize its just eaten!
Sara; They’ve got more human rights than the in-patient anorexic girls, that’s for sure?
Chrystal; How’s things with Matt Julie?
Julie; Well, after that night, I stayed with my sister and she advised me to have a few days space. So I came home from work the following day, picked the kids up from school, as I didn’t want to spoil their routine or anything. Made their tea and was chatting with them. I told them that Grandma was poorly and I needed to stay with her to make sure she got better. the kids all bought it, so at least they didn’t get dragged into anything and were none the wiser. Then, Matt comes home and he thinks everything is ok. He walked into the dining room where I’m talking with the kids and goes, ‘mm smells nice, what’s for tea,’ Cos the kids finished and the plates were empty and I goes, ‘Oh I only made the kids dinner, I left work to pick them up and now I’ve got to go back and finish my shift!’ His face went stone cold. And then I get up, grab my bag. Well at this point I already had my song ready to play and I said, ‘I’ve got to rush off, I called out from work to get the kids, I’m on a late shift!’ He asks what time I’m back and Annabell pipes up and says, ‘she’s going to look after Grandma!’ As she said it, I said speak soon. then blast out the stereo, Tammy Wynette, ‘I don’t wanna play house!!’ as I rush out the door. I think this left Matt in a right flutter. He’s been sending texts declaring he loves me and misses me.
Sara; Ooh you’re making him sweat his one out.
Julie; I know, won’t do him no harm though! Two can play that game!!
Chrystal; Go on tiger, show him your claws! lol.
Julie; Well I come with two sides, I’ll give you heaven or I’ll give you hell, which one you get, depends on how I’m treated! We’re meeting on Tuesday so I’ll update next week girls!
Billy; True, true. The sooner men learn that fact, the happier marriages will be!
Chrystal; So what is the secret to a happy relationship!
Julie; Add as much spice as you can?
Billy; Turmeric for libido, chilli for action….
Julie; Itching powder?
Chrystal: Itching powder, what for?
Julie; In their boxer shorts for when they stand you up after you’ve spent three hours making dinner!
Sara; Oh I like that one Julie. Although, thinking about it… if Luke saw itching powder in the house, he’s use it on his brother!….. I agree though, once the honeymoon period is over, you got to keep things going. It takes work and commitment from both sides!
Julie; Men are quite simple really, when you think about it! It’s us women that complicate things, as we’re more emotionally driven. And men are more mentally driven.
Chrystal; And…. by their lower region!!
Billy; Not always! There’s women out there that are just as cold and abusive towards their husbands and wouldn’t think twice about cheating and abusing them!
Julie; Yeah they’re are, I cant disagree with that. I’ve seen it in practice too. Where the wife is quite bolshie and aggressive! I remember one go to swing for her husband once? Couldn’t believe it…. the poles swing in both sexes doesn’t it! They’re are some decent men out there!
Sara; Yeah but women wouldn’t abuse woman, like men fight men!
Billy; Oh yes they do!!. Wait till you hear this one. The mistress and the mayor’s daughter. You’ll question your trust with woman!!!
Julie; OOH go on Billy, spill spill!!
Billy; Well, it as at work. There were these two women, one was the mayor’s daughter and the other one was a nice hardworking, decent girl. Well the nice girl was so nice that she was sucked in by the mayors daughter, BIG TIME. I really felt sorry for her, when the whole thing came to light!
Sara; Ooh, sounds illicit, go on Billy, I’m getting a twinge. Tonight could be the night bump finally bursts through the waters!!
Billy; Okay. The nice girl, I’ll call her Eve, she came from a humble background and well, she had experienced domestic violence. So her heart was in the right place. Anyway, the mayors daughter, I’ll call her Lilith, what she did was reel her in and re-abuse her. It certainly shed a light on those women who judge the battered wives that’s for sure!
Sara; OMG how she do that?
Billy; What happened was Eve was duped into believing Lilith was unhappy in her marriage and was being abused, so naturally, she jumped in to help, without thinking or rather, she was conned through bullshit by Lilith.
So, Lilith was a happily married woman, who wasn’t satisfied with her husband and was having an affair, in fact, Lilith confirmed that she had the perfect husband…. and she wanted to get time away from work so she could get her weekly shag with her lover.
Julie; OMG Billy, do I need to crack the brandy for this one or what!
Billy; You might? Anyway, this Eve, right, was told by Lilith that she too, was being abused…. by her lover?
Sara; Why she staying with him then, if he’s abusing her and she’s got a husband?
Billy; Ok, stay with me here, cos it gets complex and really viscous! So, it started out the that when Lilith mentioned this as an excuse to get time away, so when Eve caught on that Lilith had no intentions of divorcing her husband and he wasn’t abusing her. Eve ended up changing the game plan, by jumping in, heart first and saying that she needs to get out of the relationship, she gets reeled in even more through Lilith’s insidious mind game, forcing Eve to reveal more than she wanted to, even though her heart was in the right place and her intention was honest.
Anyway, over time Lilith knew she was onto a good thing. So every time she invaded Eve’s personal life, to badger on at her about her abusive boyfriend, asking for advice because she was claiming to be an abused spouse too. What conspired was Eve wised up to the game plan and recognized she was ‘being played’ by Lilith, because over time, Eve was noticing a pattern. Eve said that when she would tell Lilith that she didn’t have the answers and that she wasn’t the right person to talk to, Lilith would paraphrase ‘yes but you were abused, and you didn’t listen either did you,’ This phrase was used over and over and over, So Lilith could keep using Eve to get away, not once, but three times a week. Eve tried to contain the situation by saying no, she couldn’t leave work again and that she would report it to higher management if she did leave to meet her lover!
Lilith did this time and time again and eventually, Eve reported it to higher management, because she confronted Lilith, and raised her voice, she was heard shouting at Lilith. So she explained the whole scenario saying that Lilith was using work time to escape and Lilith spends three hours or so with her lover, several, times a week, leaving Eve to hold the fort and do all the work.
Sara; I don’t fucking blame her for raising her voice! She was lucky she didn’t get a right hook!!
Chrystal; It happens to both sexes doesn’t it!
Sara; Well that Lilith is one damaged woman there?
Billy; Oh it gets worse… when Eve reported it, the higher management decided that because she raised hr voice at Lilith for abusing her, she was sacked.
Julie; No way??
Sara; That’s insane…. She reports that an employee is abusing her and abusing the company, and gets fired for whistle blowing! WTF???
Billy; I know.. I couldn’t believe it too.
Julie; Ah that poor girl? There’s no place for decency in this mad world!
Sara; It certainly sheds a different light on the nature of domestic violence doesn’t it?
Billy; Well that’s why society prejudges it. Because they all think it was the victim’s fault in the first place. Yet here we are, hearing about a rich, daddy’s little angel, who was one abusing her husband, the employer and the girl – Eve, who she used as a scapegoat to continue on with her illicit life, and she gets off scott free!! Whereas, in a generalised society, its the the poor, poverty stricken girl, who endures punch after punch, for being loyal to one man, and then suffers the shame off the public, blaming her for enduring it!!! Yet the wealthy loyal man, has to suffer the same level of abuse, from his wife!
Julie; Cuts both ways! Only on different levels?
Sara; Yeah… How fucked up society is?
Julie; Prejudiced you mean? Most people judge by saying the victim deserved it for being too submissive, for sticking around, yet the mistress and her antics go underground! I bet her husband is one of the nice guys that wouldn’t entertain abusing women, cos he’s the one being abused! Jeez Billy, your right, I do need the bloody brandy now!
Sara; If the truth be known, it’s the probably the mistresses saying those things about their fellow women!
Julie; Well Bob Marley write and sing. the song…. NO woman no cry!
Chrystal; Ooh….. Oh,, er…. hmmm..
Sara; Holy shit, has is started!!!
Chrystal; Oooohh… I think my waters have broke!
Sara; Julie; Billy; Yaaay….
Billy; It worked…. The shock tactic ahs burst the pipes….
Julie; Where’s the old man Chrystal.
Chrystal; I’m calling him now.
Sara; Have a bath honey, ease up the back pain…. It’s gonna be a long night!!
Julie; Go on GF, you get off line and go deliver that baby.
