    You call that a salad?!

    Just felt like sharing my annoyance. I know we all have situations like this.

    ...........

    I pulled my lunch from the fridge in the breakroom. Aaaah, good food. Happy.

    I took off the lid and smiled down at my beautiful salad (maybe I love food a little TOO much).
    I should have taken a picture.

    A bed of romaine and spinach, covered with chicken, bacon, egg, peppers, sunflower seeds, tomatoes, avacado, and my 'homemade healthy ranch'...with fork in hand, I was almost blissful. Blissful at work...now that's impressive.

    ...and then...

    "You call that a salad? Look at all that fat! OMG, you have more toppings than lettuce!"

    Blah.

    When I do eventually snap, I want it to be good. I usually just say, "Yep, mmmm fat!" or "I love a salad with a personality," or something lame like that.

    Possible one-liners I like (just for fun, I picture myself dropping a mic after saying these)
    - Why don't you get back to shoving those 100 calorie packs down your gullet?
    - I'm sorry, what was your weight again?
    - And how IS that Weight Watchers plan going for you?
    - ???

    Note: I will never, ever use these. But it's fun to daydream about the reaction I would get.

    OMG. Use those one-liners. Please.

    Also I think you should do the Sarah Palin-esque "How's that weighty watchy thing workin' out for ya?"

    Sung in the tune of the old McDonald's slogan:

    "Have you checked your weight today?"

    Omg, this cracked me up...

    Should I sing a full round? Complete with "with an oink, oink here and an oink, oink there...?

    Tell them to look up a fucking cobb salad, one of the best types of salad out there (tomato, crisp bacon, roasted chicken breast, hard-boiled egg, avocado, chives, Roquefort cheese).

    How about this: "Well, lettuce is basically nutritionally useless, so I load my salads up with nutritional and delicious ingredients - they're not 'toppings'"

    Perhaps, "How about you get your lunch out and I'll criticize it for you?" That should shut them up.
