When are people going to realise that living a so called ”fit life” isn’t about swapping a chocolate bar with lots of calories for a chocolate bar with less calories?
One of the local newspapers had a “big test” where they were comparing “normal” foods with their healthier versions. Since when are chocolate and candy considered staple foods? It makes me so angry that people seem to think that normal food is cake, cookies and pizza. It’s not. I’m surrounded by people who are constantly dieting (i.e. trying some fad diets) but it would never occur to them to work out. The same people don’t eat sugar but cake is fine! Whaaaat?
What did I ever do to you?
There’s one Russian word that I like (among a thousand other Russian words) – Лицемерный. This word could be used to describe quite a few of the people I’m working with. If I wouldn’t be so conflict-shy, I’d like to tell those people the following:
- Were you never told that what goes around comes around? Everyone knows what you are doing and they will not respect you for it.
- The only way to create a good atmosphere at work is by cooperating and being nice to people.
- Believe it or not, having a positive attitude towards your workmates – and people in general – will make you happier.
- Usually, if you are worried about somebody’s wellbeing, the best way to show your concern is by asking them directly. Philosophising about another person’s health with everyone else except the person in question will probably not provide you with any satisfactory answers whatsoever.
- I can live without snotty remarks about how very difficult it must be to study and work at the same time. Most students work while they study. But then again, you – without any kind of higher education – probably don’t know what it means to be a university student.
- I believe that they pay you for working, not gossiping with colleagues.
