Public Displays of Fat: Follow Up

As some of you might remember, I had a thing at work a few weeks ago,


My boss, in an attempt to give us all free shirts, asked that we fill out a chart with our shirt sizes. Everyone in our office could see the entire chart, so I found myself embarrassed to put down my size. The other girls in my office are like sizes 4-8, maybe 10. But I rock a 12-6 depending on the item (my boobs a large and in charge, so that's another consideration). They all put something like 'small in mens, medium in womens'. I personally don't care for women's sizes so i just put an 'L' like the men did. I didn't want to put 'large in mens, xxxxxxxlarge in women's' in a public area, even though my coworkers see me every day and obviously know how big I am.

Needless to say, my hope that my boss would read the 'L' as a men's large was not recognized. I'm now the owner of another free t-shirt I'll never wear.
