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.
