    My obese co-workers are always sitting around and chit chating instead of working. That is why they are obese. They will say stuff like, "oh I eat salad for lunch and I only will drink diet sodas.. " I am like,"Whatever..." One time I told them I will be 5 minutes late because I have my bootcamp in the morning. And they told me to cancel my workout because they cannot work for me in that 5 minutes period time. I am sooooo sick of their attitude! Please help these obese co-workers disappear , please!STAT!
    Quit your job and go work at Planet Perfect.

    It's funny. There are an infinite number of threads on this board where nurses are judgmental of obese patients. However, when the tables are turned, it is mean to comment on obese nurses. Nursing is the only busy, stressful job and most working adults have trouble fitting in exercise into their busy schedules.
    I don't think that judging someone for their size is appropriate, regardless if that person is a patient or a coworker.

    Nope, it is all real. My coworkers are brutal. I want people to accept the fact that it is NOT their thyroid. It is their eating habits and their immobility that cause them to gain weight!
    I am not trying to be mean but obese nurses do not set a good example for our patients neither do smoky nurses! They are the same!

    Maybe they sense your attitude and don't feel inclined to go out of their way even though it wouldn't normally be that big of a deal. I have a fitness freak co-worker who sits around obsessively boring people to death about her fitness routine.

    You come across sounding nasty.

    You talk this way about your co-workers, what do you say about your patients?

    Think what you like but when you verbalize it outloud you invite ridicule.

    When every aspect of your life is perfect. When you are above reproach and are elevated to the moutain top and human kind awaits your accumen.

    Come enlighten us.

    I don't think it's their job to cover your tardiness because you cannot manage to schedule your class for a more appropriate time.
