    I went to the local grocery store today to buy some seafood. I could not even maneuver between the widest aisles as everyone used a wheeled cart, not to mention cart-users were obese people who shopped very lightly, a few sodas and frozen meatballs. I was, at a quick glance, the only person using a hand-held basket. [​IMG]

    Stop shopping in Boca.

    I apologize your first impression of the Tea Party was so negative

    Thought.
    I have no room to swing my little basket around.

    'Don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing.

    Yes. I absolutely despise most Gen Y tards, with the exception of myself, of course.

    I can't imagine why your parents didn't love you.

    I wouldn't necessarily call it laziness. Imo the problem is entitlement.

    Yeah could be worth going back to being a Personal Trainer for. 99% fat-ass percentage, please.

    It made me think though, if you manage to stay slim how much of an advantage is that in the jobmarket?
    enough of an advantage to allow you go earn enough to pay the taxes to support people too fat to wipe their own ass?

    I was an Englishman in New York for sometime - working at an investment bank and compared to most - I found the Americans some of the hardest working people I have ever met...

    Another English transplant here... realized a big part of the reason Americans like convenience and laziness so much is because they work ridiculous hours and get next to no holiday time. Last thing you want to do after a week of 12 hour workdays is cook a decent meal or go to the gym.
