One thing I keep hearing these days:
“Uy, tumaba ka.”
And I’m always like, “Seriously? You really have to blurt that out?” Of course, I can only say that to myself because there’s a thing called manners.
It pisses me off that some people just can’t stop pointing out someone’s weight gain.
I mean, unless I’m morbidly obese with health risks here and there, what’s the big deal?
I have always gained and lost weight that I stopped losing sleep over it.
But it really irritates me that only way to start a conversation some people know is by commenting on weight.
Which got me thinking —
If I sparked a conversation with these people by stating how dumb they’ve become, or how insensitive they are, would they engage in a conversation?
I don’t think so.
If you’re reading this, I hope a realization dawns on you —
that when your parent/teacher taught you not to say anything if you’re not gonna say something nice,
they were right.
