    A friend of mine used to put her flavored creamer in a Tupperware bottle with the label "breast milk" on it to keep people from using up all of her creamer.

    There is no way to tell how healthy your nurse is just by looking at her. An overweight nurse may be very health, able to swim in current for an hour at a time and walk all over Paris on vacation. A thin nurse may be very unhealthy -- a smoker, have eating disorders and unable to walk up a flight of stairs without wheezing. Yet this "no fat nurses" thing comes up again and again.

    Fat shaming is offensive, whether you're doing it from a place of "fat is ugly" or if you're claiming to do it out of concern for the person's health. Do you think for one moment that the overweight person has somehow failed to notice that they are overweight? Patients can be educated about the correlation between obesity and some health conditions, but the nurse KNOWS these things.

    As far as a patient who doesn't want to receive health information from a fat nurse; I guess that's their choice. An ignorant choice, an offensive choice, but definitely their choice to make.

    Well, somebody invented the refrigerator locker, so it must be pretty common unfortunately. Had this issue in our break room once- we all knew who the culprit was, but had no proof. Oddly enough, once said suspect did something stupid enough to get himself fired, no more break room lunch theft.

    Just make it through orientation, then do whatever you want. It's difficult to work with or under someone else when you have your own way of doing things ...but it won't be forever.
    People of all ages experience this, by the way.

    Just give her the COB side-eye and carry on.

    Or, if she pushes you away again, run her over with said cart.
