Okay, you can take your mind out of the gutter as this is about to become my new catchphrase, not unlike DTF and GTL from Jersey Shore – which I must say is not a bad season so far. It is kind of up and down but at least we don’t have to deal with Ron and Sammi fighting all the time and it is set in Italy so there’s pretty scenery.
My WTF means What The Fat!!!!!!!!
But, I digress. I promised you an additional blog about the man who is suing White Castle because he is too large to fit into a booth and here it is. I thought for fun, I would just go through the article line by line which appeared in the New York Post and put commentary.
White Castle hates fatty’s gut – (The NY Post is notorious for great headlines) Portly patron sues for bigger booths A bigger seat — it’s what he craves. A devoted, 290-pound White Castle fan is steaming mad at the fast-food chain, which he says repeatedly broke promises to make the booths in his local eatery bigger. (ok, White Castle opened in 1921 and for 80 years never had to enlarge their booths – is that a clue there is something not right about this picture) All stockbroker Martin Kessman wants is a place at the table. (It seems to me that he has had a place at the table all too often – so stay home or get take away if you can’t fit)
But when the 64-year-old walked into the White Castle in Nanuet back in April 2009 for his usual No. 2 combo meal, he got an unpleasant surprise. (How come I don’t have a usual combo meal number 2 and to get right to the point, I don’t even know those exist and clearly he shouldn’t either)
“They’re stationary booths,” he told The Post. “I’m not humongous, [but] I’m a big guy. I could not wedge myself in.” (he’s not HUMONGOUS – WTF! This is what is wrong with this country in a sentence – of course he’s humongous – he’s almost 300 pounds and is not a professional football player –What is wrong with his sense of identity?????)
Mortified (not fitting into a booth should have mortified him but instead of taking it on himself and perhaps thinking he is doing something wrong not to mention unhealthy, he blames the establishment – a typical American response – when did we stop taking responsibility for what we do) and in pain from smacking his knee into one of the table’s metal supports, Kessman limped out of the restaurant, (If I weighed that much, limping is probably a way of life for him) and later penned a complaint to corporate headquarters.
“As I looked around the restaurant, I saw that there were no tables and chairs that could accommodate a person that merely wanted to sit down and eat his meal,” Kessman wrote. (YES there is – for people who are not grossly OBESE; I could fit into a chair quite comfortably, physically but not mentally, I am sure) Kessman claims he has no problem finding a place to take a load off at other fast-food places, and fits easily into airline seats. (There is no way he fits into an airline seat without at least a seat belt extension and for sure he is one of those people that you fear sitting next to you when they are going down the aisle sideways because they can’t fit any other way)
Kessman said. “So two and a half years went by, and nothing was done.” The Rockland County man says the chain’s uncomfortable booths violate the civil rights of fat people. (What about the civil rights of skinny people? He violates my eyes, my sense of beauty – heck he violates my entire career)
The Americans with Disabilities Act is “applicable, not only to me, but to pregnant women and to handicapped people,” he said. (OK, CLUE number 3 – You are not disabled because you can’t keep your mouth shut and not filled with food all day long – when did gluttony become a disability – have we lost our collective minds?)
I am sorry for being so out there with my opinions, but sometimes things just rattle me and I keep help myself because America is going down the wrong road in terms of health and nutrition and if we stand up for this type of behavior, we are doomed.
