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!
