Wonder how many eating disorders she diagnoses at the cash register every day. “Psych 101? I know fucking EVERYTHING!”
Because the job market is in such wonderful shape that no one actually qualified in psych could possibly be working at McD’s because the rent needs to be paid somehow.
Also, fighting an eating disorder of your own teaches you a hell of a lot. She may be speaking from firsthand experience.
You can’t deny that what she says is true no matter where she works though. There’s lots of reasons other than just over eating a person could be overweight. My mom had a friend who weighed over 400 pounds. Could not lose weight. Turns out she had a tumor wrapped around her thyroid.
There’s medications that make people fat. Allergies can make people fat. (Inflammation from allergies can slow your metabolism.) For women there’s Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Thyroid problems.
And there’s emotional problems too. I know my own obesity is a combo of the PCOS, emotional problems from being bullied & sexually assaulted when I was younger, and inflammation due to allergies. And having people constantly put me down and treat me like crap because I’m not thin doesn’t help. It doesn’t inspire me to lose weight. It just makes me feel more depressed, more hopeless, and I turn to food as a crutch.
So yeah, she has a point.
And who knows, maybe she’s working at McDonald’s to put herself through college so she can become a psychologist and help people with eating disorders of all types when she graduates.
Well, this response right here signals the death of humor.
Fine, down vote me. I’m just saying if the people at Winning spent this much time analyzing every potential joke they’d never post anything. Sometimes a joke doesn’t need to be dissected to death. This is not a news site.
You seem to forget that it’s THE FAT ISSUE
People will get extremely jumpy, anyone who isn’t fat or doesn’t retell thyroid gland story as a firsthand experience will be downvoted to oblivion as a horrible, horrible human being.
That’s how reddit-based internet works.
Wow you’re not kidding. I guess if you’re the kind of person who can’t fix the problems in your own life, the most you can do is down vote a comment on the internet.
(ed. note: Hahaha, self-fulfilling prophecy)
I don’t actually dispute anything she says. I just thought it was funny that someone would give such a lengthy treatise on eating disorders, yet she works at McDonald’s. Funny bit of irony.
Yep. The Former Ms. Sock was 5′-1″, 98 pounds when we first got married, then for the longest was a very healthy (and sexy) 120 pounds. Then she shot up 60 friggin’ pounds in a year; it turned out to be thyroid cancer. But she went through the same abuse and shunning by judgmental assholes like Mr. Paul Clark.
She still looked (looks) pretty to me.
But Paul Clark is a TOP COMMENTER. What do you got?
Sock’s got writing skills.
I got two turntables and a microphone.
Where it’s at!
I think she’s incredibly well spoken! Pro ana images are awful and encourage poor nutrition habits, I’d even be willing to say that they’re worse than McDonalds.
Oh. I thought he meant “pro anal”.
Which still makes sense. But the other makes more sense.
Don’t google “pro anal”, btw.
Or “pro ana”. Pretty sad.
Whats so funny? Binge eating is a real disorder. It is serious. I’ve had it and still suffer from it. Her argument is valid.
And so what if she works at mcdonalds?
I work at mcdonalds and so do a lot of my friends.
The bills need to be paid. There was no other places hiring around my area so thats why i work there. Or should i just have no job and use my parents to get whatever i want, just so i dont get made fun of for working at mcdonalds?
Dude, chill the fuck out.
