Fat bastard should be charged for being disgusting and fat

A US nail salon has introduced a surcharge for overweight people, explaining the extra cost as “service fees”.

The Memphis salon Rose Nails said the usually $30 pedicure would be $45 for larger customers, the Daily Mail reported.

“Sorry, but if you are overweight, pedicures will be $45 due to service fees for the pedicurists. Thank you!” a sign in the salon read.

“Went to gt my nails done on Overton Crossing and Frayser Blvd and this is what they have up….so rude.”

Tabitha Toblessed Hall, replied: “If your legs and feet is 3 times the average person there is nothing wrong with charging extra that’s a lot of work lifting it’s not discrimination it’s business. [SIC]”

Others agreed with her, but many felt the sign was discriminatory and rude.

“That’s discrimination … they can get sued for that,” said one commenter.

“I’m a nail tech and am gobsmacked with the sign. Just wow,” said another.

Good to see the Fat Bastard tax in action.   Being fat is a choice.   So don’t expect to get away with being a walking mountain and then have the world treat you as if you are thinner, lighter, cheaper and exactly the same amount of work.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
