what the fuck is going on with mn today - eugenics, snobbery and now this - op have a biscuit

What a stupid question!!! Why is her weight even relevant?

I have a wonderful home and family, good social life and a job in which I may be seen, by some of the public, as an authority figure and am overweight shock. It doesn't affect my work performance or my life as I'm sure it doesn't hers.

She's on TV 5318008, finding jobs for unemployed people. So obviously her weight is entirely relevant hmm

Look, find a stone and crawl back under it, together with your trolly claptrap.

That is - if YOUR ass will fit.

God almighty. I've read some shit on here today, but that takes the biscuit. (did you see what I did there? Did you??)

shock

I thought you meant some kind of cartoon character or something and this was going to be a joke but you are serious aren't you

5318008 Wed 08-Jun-11 20:26:44

oh, sorry, am watching Springwatch MissPent

not got me finger on the pulse at ALL have I

grin

Maybe she does have a medical issue. Or maybe she eats for emotional reasons. Or maybe she put on weight while pregnant and hasn't had time to lose it. Or maybe she just enjoys her food.

The crux of the issue, though, is that it's a) entirely irrelevant to her job and b) none of your business whatsoever. Bringing it up at all is judmental and bitchy, tbh.

MissPenteuth Wed 08-Jun-11 20:28:33

judgmental, even.

emsyj Wed 08-Jun-11 20:31:07

I wasn't aware that she marketed herself as 'disciplined'. She is very good at helping other people to get motivated and confident so that they can secure employment. Her eating habits bear no relation to that skill.

YABU. Your question is nonsensical.

ptangyangkipperbang Wed 08-Jun-11 20:41:11

I usually just lurk but am so furious about the OP I must post. So does that mean only slim people can be organised and motivating? Rubbish.

Cocoflower Wed 08-Jun-11 20:42:24

So self-disiplined has to extend to every part of your life?

Does that mean we shouldnt employ any fat people as their weight shows how useless they are? If they cant keep skinny does than mean they are worthless in every aspect of life?

glitteryturd Wed 08-Jun-11 20:45:07

this post had made me hungry off to the fridge

Mumcentreplus Wed 08-Jun-11 20:54:12

<cackles> bitch alert she has a job so she can be fat..you can be to be overweight if you have a job...you buy your own cakes innit?hmm

SuePurblybilt Wed 08-Jun-11 20:58:06

She was just one of many doing a recruitment-type job for the long term unemployed in the show last year. Luckily for the last series, she was great telly, chiefly because she spoke like a loon and wore odd air-hostess circa 1982 outfits. So this second series centres around her - so far so exactly like every other fly on the wall reality show.
I don't think she has set herself up to be anything - she was just the person who made the best tv and selected to 'star'. Should she have dropped 3 stone just cos she made it on t'tellybox?

MadamMemoo Wed 08-Jun-11 21:00:05

Don't be such a bitch

SuePurblybilt Wed 08-Jun-11 21:06:14

grin Me Memoo? Or the OP?

JockTamsonsBairns Wed 08-Jun-11 21:08:21

Christ. MN is awful at the moment. What the hell has being overweight got to do with anything here? Utter crap, but then there are plenty of threads of this variety going on these days.

OP, if this is genuinely your view, then I despair. If you have posted just to get a rise (as I suspect), why bother? It really is quite dull.

Oh, and YABU by the way.

southeastastra Wed 08-Jun-11 21:10:39

she reminds me of the pen lady, pauline, from league of gentlemen

BlooferLady Wed 08-Jun-11 21:11:25

this is about the fifteenth thread this week that has made me despair for MN. What in fuckery is going on.
