IS THAT A FAT JOKE?

Today on the 811, I was sitting in a seat all to myself, relishing the unprecedented amount of personal space I had, but realizing that, as we were approaching UVU, all personal space would soon be compromised.

It turns out that there was a respectable, but not excessive, crop of anxious people waiting at UVU. One of the many people who filed on was a rather large man who eyed the seat next to me for a second, thought better of it, and proceeded to speak to the person sitting directly behind me.

He said, "I guess I better sit by someone skinny." I felt unfairly, if implicitly, categorized.
