    Some Things Can Weight To Be Said

    | Toledo, OH, USA | Coworkers

    (I work at a large factory and am spread across all three shifts. Sometimes, I don’t make it to certain areas for weeks. I’m also a newlywed of one year, and am the same size as when I got married. One day. I run into an older female employee.)

    Employee: “Wow! Haven’t seen you in a while!”

    Me: “Yes, sorry. It’s been crazy around here.”

    Employee: “So, I have a question.”

    Me: “Sure, what is it?”

    Employee: “Are you expecting?”

    Me: “No, ma’am, I’m not.”

    Employee: “Oh! Well, marriage looks good on you then.”

    Me: “Um, thanks?”

    Employee: “Don’t worry, dear. I gained 40 pounds after I got married!”

    Me: *speechless*

    Employee: “There’s no shame in letting yourself go a little.” *winks*

    Me: *speechless*
