I'm just really nice.
I took off of work today because my friends wanted to spend all day trying out some new workout techniques (which were crap, but that's not the topic here), and I agreed to check it out. I woke up later than I was planning on this morning, so I didn't have time to cook myself a decent breakfast. No problem there, I just spent the extra bit of time surfing online a bit. On the way to their house, I stopped by a gas station to grab a quick breakfast. After checking out a bit of nutrition information, I decided to settle for some jerky. Low sodium, hell yeah! Anyways, when I was in line to buy it, a woman's voice behind me starts complaining about the meat. I turn around expecting to see some hippie chick preparing to give me a big lecture on animal cruelty, but instead I see a woman who probably hasn't seen her shoes since the early 70's. In one hand, she's got one of those jumbo slurpees, and in the other, a large bag of Doritos. "Alright, not the usual hippie," I think to myself as I wait to hear about how the meat companies kill bunnies or some stupid shit. Instead, I get a lecture on how bad meat is for your body. That's right. I'm standing there with 5% body fat, being lectured on unhealthy eating by some injured manatee that was holding food much worse. Normally, I would have countered with a lecture on the dangers of obesity, but I was way too stunned to say anything. All I could get out was "Um, okay," then turned around for my change before I left. Who the fuck did she think she was telling me what to eat? Hell, at least I got a damn nice story to tell out of it.
