The other day I went out for lunch with some coworkers as a team-building exercise to California Pizza Kitchen. I ordered a salad and the man sitting across from me (my project manager) said, “A salad? You looked at the calorie counts* didn't you? Don't even look at those, get what you want. You don’t need to diet."
In my mind I was like, "No asshole, I didn't look at the calorie counts. I looked at what was delicious!" But in life I just sort of looked away and mumbled “glutenfreemumblemumble” and then everyone at the table started talking about home theatre systems or something.
And for the record, I looked it up when I got back to my desk and my salad was over 1000 calories, and I ate the whole damn, delicious thing! It is so aggravating that he would just assume I’m on a diet.
*In NY all restaurants with over 15 locations nationwide must print calorie counts on the menu.
No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means.
