As of this week I have been at my job for a year. Is it okay to stop responding to my coworkers when they talk about how they’re “omg such a fatty” and the size of their asses when the even look at a cookie, etc.?
It’s not reassuring them, nor does it seem to make them like me any more — and it makes me feel bad about myself, because they are all a substantial amount smaller than me. Yet, I seem to be getting along just fine! And I don’t really feel like being the fat expert.
At the end of the day, there are so many other things we can complain about together, like the lack of decent cheap places to eat near my office, or how Matt Lauer clearly hates his job and should go away.
