    What a complete idiot!

    Wow, that was really rude of the professor to say that to you!

    People like that just tend to open their mouths and not care what comes out. I used to waitress, and I'm a very thin girl (been that way my whole life, I eat like a cow though, lol) and when I asked one of my tables if they would like dessert, the lady just looked at me and said "Do YOU even EAT dessert?" I just looked at her, said yes, and walked away- but, really, was that comment even called for? Some people can just be so rude! :angryfire Anyway, I'm sorry that happened to you.

    Lol @ Marie. You seem like someone I'd like in person. That was very rude for the professor to say. Why do people assume that people in certain professions are supposed to be perfect role models. If that were true then all marriage counselors would have perfect marriages, all teachers would have straight A students, housekeepers would have spotless homes( I know a woman who is and although her home isn't nasty, it isn't spotless either). Anyway, you get my drift, people are only human and if it weren't for the fact that this guy has to give you a grade, I would tell him next time I saw him to kiss you were the sun don't shine.

    BTW- he'd better be glad I was not there, I would have had to say something on your behalf.
    That's why God has her in the class instead of you

    I agree...what a jerk.

    I'm very thin girl ( I guess the right word is petite) myself and i definitely know what you mean, sometimes at my work females makes rude comments about my body like; you were size O and when I tell them i wear size 5 they shake their heads with disbelief on their face, like Im lying. God made this way and I dont see the reason why people have to discriminate skinny people, I would never approach a overweight person with a commant like that, but this is just me.

    Hi Nemhain,

    Let me just say, your professor is such a jerk! Nursing school is stressful and you just don't need that sort of commentary! I'm really sorry that you had to feel embarassed for simply calming a hungry stomach. I bet you every student in that room understood, so don't you worry about it.

    Take care,
    K

    If he does it again you should say "That's nice.. a math professor that's an ignorant jerk!" Well.. maybe you shouldn't say that out loud xD

    When I came back in the room (I had already had a bite of the donut) my professor looked up and said, "that's nice, a nursing major eating a donut."
    "That's remarkable. A professor who doesn't realize how little time nursing students have to take care of themselves!"

    I'm really hurt and embarrassed.

    I was in a study group with my math professor and I got really hungry. I didn't want to leave to go all the way to the dining hall to get something "healthy" to eat 'cause I was afraid I'd miss something in my group, so I went to the vending machine just outside the room and got a donut. When I came back in the room (I had already had a bite of the donut) my professor looked up and said, "that's nice, a nursing major eating a donut." I almost died. Everyone looked at me and said nothing I was really embarassed 'cause I am a little overweight and I realize that wasn't a healthy choice, but it really made me feel bad.

    just needed to vent
    I probably would have laughed out loud, taken a huge bite for emphasis, and added "Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm!

    UGH! what a jerk! I woulda probably pulled my diabetic thing.. "freakin idiot my blood sugar is low.. back off" but honestly.. shoulda invited him to come visit nursing school... wonder how many students pick up smoking while in school? a LOT.. that's worse than a freakin donut. I'm sorry... I am honestly glad it wasn't me, because my sarcastic mouth woulda got me in trouble. I know it's hard because it would be hard for me, but try not to let it bother you. People are CONSTANTLY on me for eating something "aren't you diabetic? You can't eat that!" totally different concept, but at first when it started i honestly cried Shoulda given him the fish to the face ----> :trout:

    Maybe he will come in to your hospital someday for a jammed fiinger or something and you can give him an enema- sounds like he has something stuck up his butt. Karma's a fun thing.

    "...a nursing major eating a donut".

    LOL, let's have fun with the possible retorts!!

    "Well, Professor, congratulations! I've been conducting a month-long psychology experiment to see if anyone would actually be rude enough to make a comment correlating what students eat with what their chosen professions will be, and YOU are the FIRST to do so!"

    Putz.

    This one is my favorite!!! OMG
