|'Scuse me I wanted a piece....|
Well as we all gathered around passing the cake ala Office Space, but unlike Milton I did get a piece(a small piece), Old Man Magoo (semi retired co-worker who is 175 years old that still comes into work despite being on death's door) commented that the Owner of the company better eat this cake while he can before his surgery. Well that perked up everyone's ears...Surgery. Well let me preface by saying the Owner, looks like Santie Claus, yeah he really does big ol belly and rosy red cheeks with a white beard. I will call him Santie Claus for the remainder of this blog entry. So Santie Claus told us that he is thinking about doing gastric bypass surgery which used to be known as stomach stapling, to which I said didn't Kenny Rogers get that done (really what hasn't Kenny Rogers had done, he is a poster child for why not to do plastic surgery along with Joan Rivers). Well apparently like Kenny, Santie knew when to fold them and decided to go the surgical route to lose weight. He has struggled with his weight for years and thinks this is only his option. Now as we are eating our cake he describes in detail what they will do to his stomach and yeah I wanted to throw up the cake and do some push ups right then and there. Now here is the funny part though the surgery won't be covered by insurance unless he follows a nutrition plan for six months and loses weight first, seriously laughed out loud on that one because in my little head I was thinking okay if he could do that in the first place why would he be doing the surgery. But then my boss quickly retorted the insurance sees this as like giving an alcoholic a new liver they want to make sure this works for you and you can stick to losing weight after the surgery, man that is so true. They gotta make sure fatties lose the weight and keep it off since they are paying big bucks to sew up your stomach to the size of your thumb yeah seriously. No wonder Star Jones drank her meals in shot glasses. I know people are desperate to lose weight but why drastic surgery? Are you that addicted to Whataburger and McDonalds that you would rather spend thousands on surgery then to give up those foods and eat better and exercise? Santie Claus said this is his only viable option because what else can he do and of course the ass hat I am I responded in my smart tone "Diet and Exercise"
