Comments

Several years ago, I previously worked where I do now. Yesterday someone who still works there was talking to someone else (and sort of to me) and said “when [Random] worked here before she was slim”. I rather protested about the implications of that comment, and whilst it wouldn’t do any harm to lose a few pounds, I am not verging on the obese. Anyway, to truly register my horror at her comment I sat on her and killed her*.

I think you were rather kind to her and should have doled out worse punishment,

Your colleague was astonishingly rude. Your sense of humour is to be applauded.

How rude indeed !

poet - She is certainly someone who says what she thinks. Were the hugs gentle because you thought you couldn't get your arms around my huge figure?!

Kahless - I can work on the punishment. I am sure there will be other opportunities.

soupy - Happy New Year to you (if it's not too late to say such a thing). You have to learn to laugh at her or else you'd go mad.

Pam - Happy New Year. I hope you're well. I hope your plans for Sweden are going well and that things are good for you.

Just got my guide book in the post yesterday. Planning away.

Pam - great. I really liked Stockholm and had a great time there. As I was there is the summer, I imagine it will be a slightly different experience at this time of year, but I really hope you enjoy it.

i'm hoping that the bit that 'may not be true' is the bit where you could lose a few pounds, not the bit where you sat on her.

Eroica - I love your sense of optimism there! I hope you had a great birthday.
