Open your mouth so I can insert my foot.

Some of my tax clients I've been seeing for several years. One of them, Betty*, came in today for her annual appointment. We chatted a bit and she caught me up on her life in the last year since I'd seen her last. She asked about my children and how work was going. Then she made a comment that made me falter a bit.


"So, it looks like you've gained some weight."


HEH?


COME AGAIN?


Did she JUST say that outloud? To me?

*Not her real name to protect her stupidity.

WTF?! I think I would have said "And it looks like you've become a bitch." Seriously, WTF?

Whoa. Rude!
My mum did email me the other day at work to say the same thing though... She thought it was to do with my new pill, and that I'll now be infertile. I wanted to spend the rest of the day in the womens bathroom crying about how i was fat and about to have to live in a cardboard box (we're moving) and I'd have no children to look after me ever.

Good freak.

I don't suppose there is any way you could just make sure this chick gets audited?

(You're probably one of those tax people with ethics, huh? Darn. It would have probably felt totally awesome.)

What a bitch? Who says that?

And also, I think you should take a deduction away or something.
