I used to work for a non-profit organization that assisted mentally
handicapped individuals. One year, the organization bought jackets
for all of the individuals with their logos on it. My boss (the
company director) took the liberty of getting up on a stage in the
workshop and handing out the jackets to the individuals. He was
almost finished when he pulled out a 5X jacket. In front of everyone
(including the future owner of the jacket) he announced loudly, “Oh
my gosh! We have someone here who is this fat?!”
A few weeks later he also came to me and wanted to know if we could
put it in the organization’s hiring requirements that you had to be
under a certain weight (I believe it was 250 pounds) to be an
employee. How he has yet to be sued is beyond my comprehension.
