Title: Health food again..... *Sigh*
Post by: emeraldsage85 on October 01, 2007, 07:52:18 PM
You all probably remember the health food nuts from my previous post (I used a different N word to describe them but I will call them nuts here because of previous objections).

I normally try to avoid the health food nuts like that plague but I got stuck doing group work with one of them today in school. She said, "I hope class is over soon. I have to go to the bathroom." I said, "You and me both."

Health food nut surveyed my appearance and I could tell she was thinking about my weight. She said,"You go to the bathroom an awful lot. You probably have diabetes."

I was tested recently for everything under the sun and I don't have diabetes. Rather than explain that though I said, "What an interesting assumption. Did you find any information about X in the textbook?"

I'm so proud of myself for using the E-hell phrase!  ;D

How did Health Food Nut respond to The Line?

Did she get the true message?

She didn't say anything but I think that's because I managed to distract her.

Good for you!

You also distracted her with another version of "Have some bean dip"

Wow - I'm diabetic ... and I think she was rude! To me that's like telling someone with a headache they might have a tumour.  She's lucky to have said it to you! I know it breaches any sense of politeness, but I would have laughed out loud and replied:

"Holy Hypocondriac! I'm not a doctor - but I'm pretty certain getting my period doesn't lead to becoming diabetic.".

<takes a deep breath of relief>  Oh my.  When I first read that I thought of a totally different N word than the one I later figured out you had been using. 

All I could think was "holy sweet peas, what does THAT word have to do with pushing health food?"

Enlighten me.  Because the N word I was thinking of is, I think, the wrong one as well.

The N word that the OP referred to was the one that means German Facists.

The word is nazi.

It's not a dirty word.  In the traditional sense.

Yes, it was Nazi. But I got lots of objections to it my last post. I didn't know if I should say it here so I just called it the N word.

Don't worry, Dotty.....it wasn't the six-letter N-word that ends with "R."

Oh, thank goodness! Because that's what I was thinking too!

I was trying to figure out what a racial slur would have to do with health food as well....another sign I need to get offline and go to bed.

Have you figured out what is mentally wrong with these girls yet????

If that was said to me, I wouldn't know which to feel more insulted about: being queried about my bathroom habits, or being told I must have diabetes. ??? Either way, you handled it nicely, emeraldsage.

YouHandled that very well. and I always referred to Health nuts as "Granolas". I said that to a friend of mine that is a very strict Vegan, and I thought she would die laughing. Actually I called her a Tree-Hugging Granola because she is a bit of an activist. I thought it was cute!

All I could think was "holy sweet peas,?"

I know this is OT, but I just have to say I LOVE that phrase!
