Fat Tax, Is It Fair

By  | 

OK, I am not a hater of fat people.  I actually like most fat people that I know, but I kind of agree with what this salon is doing. I just came back from the East Coast and on my flight back I had an isle seat. I am sitting in my seat just getting ready for the flight and I see this monster walking down the isle.  I think to myself, holly shit that would suck to have to sit next to him.  Then what do you know.  The guy stops right in front of me and puts his carry on above my head.  I am guessing he had a few boxes of twinkies and some other tasty snacks in there.  This guy is really sitting in the middle seat in my row.  I let him in and literally can only fit in half my seat.  This guys shoulders, arms and back fat are all over me and my seat.  The flight is sold out so I need to deal with this, but seriously this person should have to buy two seats.  For 5 hours I was able to enjoy the sound of a man breathing heavily, coughing and weezing when he slept, not to mention the nice smell coming from him.

So this article came across my computer this morning and I feel compelled to make a reference to it based on my flight and think the owners are right in doing this.  XXL t shirts cost more than XL, first class seats cost more than coach and they even now have extended seats in coach that cost a bit more and a 16 oz steak costs more than a 12 oz so if someone is taking up more room or doing more wear and tear than others they should have to pay a little extra for it.   TMTMTL@RollinSD.com See article below..

Nail salon charges her $5 extra for being overweight

Weighty issue: Georgia woman ‘humiliated’ by surcharge for broken chairs

Michelle Fonville went from being pampered to put down, with one swipe of a pen.

When this DeKalb County, Ga., woman received the bill from Natural Nails, a local nail salon, for her manicure, pedicure and eyebrow shaping, there was a $5 surcharge.

“I said, ‘I’ve been overcharged,’ ” Fonville told WSB-TV in Atlanta. “[The manager] broke it down, then told me she charged me $5 more because I was overweight.”

The salon manager, Kim Tran, told WSB-TV that she added the surcharge to compensate for chairs broken by overweight customers. Her pedicure chairs have a weight limit of 200 pounds and cost $2,500 to fix.

“Do you think that’s fair when we take $24 [for manicure and pedicure] and we have to pay $2,500? No,” Tran told WSB-TV.
