Burger King

I actually still want to cry, thinking about this again. But I think I'll get some sympathy from you guys, let's hope!

I'll preface this with I'm overweight. It's mostly in the stomach and hips area. Since this incident I've started going to the gym to lose weight for my wedding.

It was late one night and I was taking the 2 hour drive to my now fiance's house but I was hungry. I stopped at my local Burger King because that night I was actually craving it. I walk in and place my order with another overweight woman. After I order she kind if whispers "Are you pregnant". I was taken aback so I said "What?" So she asks again and I say "No, I'm just chubby" trying to laugh off the humiliation. If that had been the end of our conversation I would have been happy. She continues with "Are you sure?" Ummm. I'm pretty sure I would know if I were pregnant! Then she hits me with this diddy "It could be a stomach tumor, you should go to the doctor." I assured her I was fine. At this point I don't even want to eat but I'd already paid. So I got my food and held in my tears while I sat down at a booth. When I was done I immediately called my Grandma and cried.

I called Burger King corporate to report her. I didn't want her to get fired, I just wanted her to know that you cannot talk to people that way. It's completely rude and humiliating. I'm pretty sure she didn't get fired but I don't go there much anymore and if I do it's through the drive-thru.

ETA: The other overweight woman was the cashier.
