People: stop commenting on bodies that aren't your own!

The checkout girl at my work cafeteria is one of my favorite people. She's bubbly and chatty and always ready to tell me stories. Today, she had a moment plenty of women have encountered: one of her regular customers came up to her and said, "Congratulations!"

She looked around and said. "I didn't get a promotion, what am I being congratulated for?"

The commenting woman immediately got embarrassed and started apologizing. The cafeteria staff wears awkward ill fitting vests. Of course her not going a size up meant some jerk would think she was expecting!

I've had it happen to me before, I just flatly told the lady I was getting fat.

People, stop it! Stop commenting on bodies! You have to be better about that!
