Almost everyone on earth has felt self-conscious about their body at one point or another.
One of the tragedies of living in a human is the constant feeling that your body isn't enough, and this is only exacerbated by a world fueled by impossible beauty standards and photoshopped images flying in our faces.
All of this is to say, commenting on someone's body, no matter the context, can get super loaded super fast.
AITA for making a teenage girl weigh herself at the top of a waterslide?
I work as a lifeguard at a waterpark and part of my job includes managing the top of the water slides. I’m to make sure no one does anything dangerous like going face first, cramming too many people on one innertube, etc.
I’m also instructed to ask anyone who looks like they could be over the weight limit–250 pounds–to weigh themselves on our scale, and deny them entry if they refuse. I’m not super comfortable with this, but it’s much better than risking people’s safety.
