Too Fat To Tan
Hahaha I do think she was entitled to a refund though, seeing as how she wasn't informed before her purchase that she wasn't going to be able to tan on the beds.

Quote:AKRON -- A woman was told she was too fat to tan at a Norton tanning salon.

Kelly McGrevey said she purchased a tanning package at Aloha Tanning in Norton on Monday after a quick tour of the salon.

When she returned to tan on Tuesday, McGrevey says the man working at Aloha at the time turned her away.

"He said, "Sorry, but I'm not going to let you tan today because we've just implemented a new policy where anyone over 230 pounds can't go in one of our beds,'" said McGrevey.

"I was just so shocked and embarrassed and humiliated."

You really had to be called out on your weight for that to happen?

RE: Too Fat To Tan
She is very wide - how does she fit in a bed? Does she have to do one half of her body at a time?

I did notice how they stuffed the fact she could always tan standing up at the salon till the end of the piece.

That was not $70 well spent - should have invested in a gym membership. Or at least stock in Frito Lay.

RE: Too Fat To Tan
Fatness will be the new racism claim. I can already see the courts/headlines in the future... "Police discriminate based on weight." Losing weight at that fatness level would be so easy. Theres no reason for that.

No thats not discrimination, its called taking care of the company assets, fat bitch.

She probably leaves behind a puddle of rendered fat every time she fries herself on their machine, and they were tired of it.

RE: Too Fat To Tan
Ok fat jokes Banana aside I think the law is NOT on the fat customer´s side

Quote:Is it a violation of your civil rights for a business to refuse to serve you because of the way you look, the way you smell, or the way you act? The answer is...it depends.

business owners could not discriminate, for example, against hippies, police officers, homosexuals, or Republicans, solely because of who they were.

the question generally turns on whether the business's refusal of service was arbitrary, or whether the business had a specific interest in refusing service.
( like If your so fat that you are at risk of breaking the beds)

That's true. She doesn't tan, she gets cooked.

The legal liability is that if she falls asleep in the bed, she will get flash-fried.

The traditional beds are discriminating against you by being unable to hold your girth? So now the equipment must be sensitive enough to go beyond its capabilities in order to spare your feelings?

Quote:"He asked if I was aware of how many times he had to replace the acrylic on those beds because of heavy people?"

As if she'd be willing to pay back the damage she'd cause on one of those beds. Any damage she'd cause would well exceed $70. Why should the owner take a financial risk just for the sake of her feelings.

Quote:McGrevey asked for a refund of the nearly $70 month-long tanning package so she could take her business somewhere else.

"I said, "Okay, I'd like my money back then. He said, no, we don't give refunds. I said, 'You're not going to give me a refund, I paid for a service that I'm not getting, and he said no, you can't have a refund," said McGrevey.

[Image: yE8eVg1.gif]

She already made use of her subscription with the stand-up beds before they broke. Unless she'd like to give up the tan she earned from that, she can piss off.

You lose money chasing women, but you never lose women chasing money.

Yes, she was so "shocked and embarrassed and humiliated" that she ran to the media and had it broadcast world wide that she was 230 pounds instead of settling this quietly. WTF????

Why go public with this? Either obesity is a twisted form of attention-whoring or women are COMPLETELY disconnected from their own feelings or the damsel-in-distress/White Knight mindset is ingrained in them.

I'm sure all of us can think of things that really "humiliated and embarrassed" us. And you can damn well bet we wouldn't call in the media to broadcast it.

What amazes me most is that she even wants to tan. Does she really think that tan will make her look better?

RE: Too Fat To Tan
I suppose it is no coincidence that "too fat to tan" is, in a myriad of ways, reminiscent of the phrase "too big to fail."

That was the first thought that came into my head. There's a TV show here called Embarrassing Bodies and it's about people with some weird bodily abnormality that they're too embarrassed to talk to their family or friends about or go to the doctor and see.......so they go on the TV show which broadcasts to millions.

I don't think complete idiocy is limited to just fat people, unfortunately.

RE: Too Fat To Tan
I don't understand what this woman was thinking.

She felt that going to a tanning salon and getting a tan would improve her aesthetics, no doubt for the impending beach season, right? Yet somehow she ruled out that going to the gym and losing some weight to improve her aesthetics was somehow the inferior option. Was she thinking that if she was the right hue of tan everyone would be see how beautiful she was despite being roughly the same size of an armored personnel carrier?

RE: Too Fat To Tan
I imagine it would be just like cooking bacons in a microwave.
You better put paper towel underneath it because grease will come out.

BTW, the problem is not about HER but American Media.
There are always obnoxious people. I am sure you know this if you worked in any type of retail.
Now when she called them about the story, they should've just ignored such low scale story.

BUT they thought it was worth to talk about it

I can't imagine this kind of news can happen in my country. a person can write on a public forum and make an issue about it but major news company won't give a flying fuck.
'hey I got denied to use tanning bed cuz I am too fat and they kept my 70 bucks' on a news channel?? ROFL

To bad that meme is missing rollsm stretch marks, and body pimples all to common with fat obese women. That cartoon is of a women with legitimate curves, she has no rolls and is still tight, most men would no object to fuking that.

This is a better cartoon fo the typical obese women:

Sick of these fat cows. SICK of em!

I told a fat cow on the subway her perfume smelled like Donuts and that she reminded me of Krispy Kreme. I said it in such a condescending tone that after 10secs her little grin turned into disgust when she finally got what I was getting at. Fucking heffers.. Sick of Em!
