    Fat People & Productivity

    I was talking to a friend when I realized that, through my whole life, I've only ever met one really productive fat person (he was a systems analyst) outside of programmers.

    How does that compare to your experiences with fat people? Were they productive or not?

    Fat people can't be productive because they sweat on everything. I know one fat guy that busts ass, and smells like it by 9AM.

    I've met a lot of fat people who will give it all they got but will shortly give up once they start sweating, breathing heavy and so forth. However, the majority of the people i see around public don't have a care in the world and have everything done for them while they are sitting on their ass waiting for an icecream on a hot sunny day.

    Another funny thing is, i have never met any overly obese people who are very successful in the work force. Usually, the top executives and CEO's are either skinny, nerdy, or really good looking.

    My boss is a jolly old fat man, he might not do alot physically anymore, but he wakes up at the crack of dawn and stays here at work past closing often, he's always on the phone making deals or out in the warehouse making sure everybodies doing what they need to be doing.
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Fat people will only work if the work involves a buffet table.

    99% of fat people are lazy.
    Fat people are fat because they are lazy.
    People may be lazy for a huge variety of reasons, but it all can be traced back to a lack of self respect.

    On that note, I would like to see a fat tax imposed.
    Every hobby or recreational activity I have is taxed to death or outright illegal. I am 10 times healthier than most fat people, so where is the fairness here?
    Fat people drag down the productivity of companies who employer them, and they drag down the productivity of the US. Fat people are constantly in the hospital for health related issues, because they are too lazy to take care of themselves.
    To offset this burden on our economy, I am 100% in favor of implementing the fat tax today.

    True Story, the reason they are lazy is because they are ignorant. This is the perfect scenario for the government to have.

    • Normal-weight men miss an average of three work days a year, compared with five days for men who are 60 or more pounds over a healthy weight.

    • Normal-weight women miss about 3.4 days a year vs. 5.2 days for women who are obese, that is 30 to 60 pounds overweight, and 8.2 days for extremely obese, 100 or more pounds over a healthy weight.

    • The average medical expenditure for a normal-weight man is $1,351 a year. Men who are 30 to 60 pounds overweight cost $462 more based on added medical costs and absenteeism. Extremely obese men cost $2,027 a year more.

    • Average medical expenditures for normal-weight women are $1,956. Women who are 30 to 60 pounds overweight cost $1,372 more when medical costs and missed work are included. Women who weigh 60 to 100 pounds too much cost $2,485 more.

    • The most obese workers (those 100 or more pounds too heavy) make up 3% of the employed population but account for 21% of the costs of obesity.

    Thanks for the stats and link to the article, shiznit, good stuff there.

    I never liked how people say it is unfair to hire someone who is in good shape over someone who is fat if they both meet the qualifications for the job. It is NOT unfair. If you can't even take care of yourself, how are you going to take care of their company?

    Good idea. We can only wish for such a thing to be imposed as I doubt it'll happen. Good point (bolded), I never thought of this but you're right.

    I work in a Hospital and some of the patients we get......phuk!.....We get these 600lb people who cant move,and we gotta roll them over and wipe their asses,wipe down their undersides and change their sheets.....I seen this tiny nurse....I was holding the dude so she could wipe his butt.....and half her arm was in this dudes cheeks it was gross ....I think that if I ever got to the point where it was hard to get out of bed....I would seriously stop eating and start reading up on nutrition and doing some excercise.At what point does someone recognise that they need to stop living like that?
    I used to work construction and lanscaping,and half those guys were fat.....but they busted their asses in the sun all day.
