Sumo Wrestler or Jockey?

Saturday, April 24, 2010

Never in my life have I ever gone up to someone that is really short and asked  "were you a jockey?"



It's never crossed my mind when I've seen someone overweight to ask "are you a sumo wrestler?"


So why do people I've never met come up to me and say "You're tall, you must have played basketball"?

Seriously! Why does it seem that more and more people don't come with filters?
I think about the girls at the Starbucks I go to. If I had to put up with what they do I'd be led away in handcuffs!

Teri....forget the Starbucks barristers, try being an ER nurse for 12 hours.....

I have no hair and am amazed at the number of people who think it is acceptable to make bald comments when they would never make fat comments. You struck a chord with me, Teri. I came over from Green Eyed Momsters site after reading one of your comments...coincidentally, I am also in Oregon. Have a great weekend.

Hello friend how are you?
Here also ask me whether I am sumô.Eu am a great fighter and weight as well, great.
A hug.
Carlos.

Oh Karyn, I could never imagine! I have no idea how you do it!

Teri April 25, 2010 at 6:12 PM  

Monkey Man;

Thanks for coming by! People and their lack of anything resembling respect never cease to amaze me.
Oregon? We're in North Clackamas.

I hope you come by again :)

Hi Carlos!

I'm fine, thank you! I love the comment you left, you made me smile!

Hugs to you!

they do the same thing to me: you're really skinny; you must be a model/dancer/anorexic.
