While it's never a good idea to attack someone's appearance, regardless of how terrible their personality is, we all make mistakes. When we're angry and at a loss for words, insulting someone's appearance seems like the best twist of the knife, but an attack on someone's character is usually more effective.
During a recent public transportation encounter, someone caved and went for the low hanging fruit of a body-shaming comeback. However, maybe the target deserved it? Let's see...
Train is packed, it's hot, I'm tired and looking for a place to sit. Everything was occupied, but at one point I see an old lady get up and start making her way to the doors. I went over to sit in new place, but found a purse in it instead, belonging to the girl in the window seat.
I asked her if she could move the purse, but she didn't respond. I noticed she had headphones in, so I figured I'll just pick up the purse and hand it to her as I'm sitting down.
