Women have been force-fed the ‘perfect’ body in so many ways over the years. We see it on magazine covers where models strike a pose while being adorned with glamorous clothes. Movies and media over represent them all this while telling the rest of us- “this is what you should look like.”
And unfortunately that prototype of the ideal figure is so deeply ingrained into the society that even us regular people aspire to look a certain way. Sometimes, we even shame others who don’t fit into that rigid mould.
This is what happened to 19-year-old, Vega Blossom. She was patiently waiting in line at a bakery in Indiana, USA when she overheard a woman in her 40 say something nasty about her. She said,
“Now lets hope this fat bitch doesn’t buy all the cupcakes.”
She shared wrote a post about the incident on Facebook which has now gone viral.
Talking to Daily Mail, Vega said that she felt very hurt about how grown up ladies who didn’t know her had such hurtful things to say about her.
She said that she honestly wanted to cry when she heard the women ridicule her for no fault of her own it broke her.
She further added, “Growing up a chubbier girl, I always got snide comments about my weight from people who, for some reason, think it’s their business. Things like this usually wouldn’t bug me, but the fact that I didn’t know these women, and they said this so rudely and loudly-so I could obviously hear it-was different than other times.”
Finally, she swallowed her hurt and thought of a savage revenge plan for the women. Blossom said,
“I swallowed the hurt and thought of the best possible thing I could do back to them that wasn’t horrible, but that would teach them a lesson about respecting others.”
She hoped that with this revenge plan she would teach them a thing or two about kindness and karma. Well, as they say- Karma is a bitch, honey!
The staff at the bakery heard the woman chiding her and gave her some free cookies and chocolates to cheer her up. Originally she intended to buy only 6 cupcakes but just to teach them a lesson she bought EVERY cupcake there was.
Obviously this cost her money but that was a small price to pay. She spent $54 but know what gurl, it was an investment.
Not just this, she gave another burn to the lady while walking out of the cafe.
She looked them straight into the eye and asked them to open the door for her. Well, cause her hands were too full from all the sweets! One of them opened it for her and reluctantly followed her till outside. She then said,
“I think, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all. I am NOT sorry for taking all of the cupcakes.”
She shared all that sugar goodness with her friends, family and coworkers, before posting about it on social media. The post has obviously gone viral has over 79,000 reactions as well as over 26,000 shares.
Karma is a dish best served hot, ammirite?!
