To have laughed at her Slimming World advice?
829

Pikaso · 18/01/2022 13:04

Woman at work has been doing Slimming World. She’s obsessed with it and goes on about it constantly armed with her books and Muller Lights at every meal.
I told her last week I was going to give it a go. I didn’t buy Muller Lights but instead bought some asda own yogurts which had almost identical calorie, fat and sugar content. Sat down to eat lunch yesterday and she came in and said “I thought you were doing slimming world?”. I said “I am” so she said “how many syns in those yogurts?” So I said “none, they’re the same as muller lights”. She replied “no, you’re meant to eat Muller lights!” And looked really concerned and worried!! I did owl noises in her face and told her the calories, sugar and fat etc were exactly the same so why would it matter??! She actually left the room muttering about how it won’t work if you don’t do it properly.

I did slimming world a few years back and stopped because of the cult like behaviour of the members and leaders. I thought I’d give it another go but she has totally put me off again! Nothing has changed!!
She’s been off with me ever since. WIBU to have laughed at her muller light concerns?? Common sense tells you it’s the calories etc that matter, not the bloody name on the pot!!

If only for going all owl on her arse.

Common sense wise you are of course right.

Just shite to laugh at her.

Never heard of anyone doing owl noises before...unless you are an owl of course. Is this a 'thing'?

It was just so daft!! She’s an intelligent person, I couldn’t believe she was so brainwashed to think that the brand mattered!

You made owl noises in her face??? How incredibly rude and childish. Sounds like you need to grow up a bit.

I guess in theory you're not wrong but your behaviour sounds mean

What sort of owl noises did you make? A gentle 'twit-twoo' or a full on screech?

How was I rude?? I was just pointing out the facts! It’s calories that matter (and I suppose in slimming world - the fat content) but it was practically identical to muller light!

Is the owl noises a typo like "then I snapped and farted"?

Well obviously you are unreasonable to make owl noises in her face .

And you are both unreasonable about the SW as none of the flavoured yogurts are 'free' any more - just the plain flat free ones Wink

Owl noises? Did you twit twoo at her? That’s more batshit than believing you need to eat muller lights.

Is making owl noises in someone's face like t-rexing at the supermarket?

I am guessing she is off with you because you were rude to her rather than because of slimming world.

Is that true? I’ve not actually joined up, I’m just relying on her advice and books!
