Body shaming has reached epidemic proportions. But getting even with those who try to shame you is the ultimate revenge. One woman got her chance at revenge against a female body shamer while she was at a bakery. All it cost her was $54.
Vega Blossom, who lives in Indiana, was at her favorite bakery waiting to buy six cupcakes. While she was minding her own business, Blossom overheard an older woman further behind in line say: “Let’s hope this fat b***h doesn’t buy all the cupcakes.”
When she heard the woman’s comment, she was in disbelief. According to Blossom’s Facebook page, she did not say it quietly. “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.”
Blossom told Yahoo she had always had issues with her weight since she was a young girl. “Growing up [as] a chubbier girl, I always got snide comments about my weight from people who, for some reason, think it’s their business,” she said.
She recalled when she heard the woman’s mean words that she wanted to cry. “When I heard the nasty things the woman said, I honestly wanted to cry,” 19-year-old said. “It really hurt my feelings.”
Instead of letting it get to her, Blossom decided she was going to do exactly what the women didn’t want to be done — eat all the cupcakes. Instead of buying the six cupcakes she originally intended to buy, she flipped the script on the older women by buying every mega-sized cupcake in the bakery, which came out to $54.
When she posted her self-proclaimed “petty” incident on her Facebook account, it was met with kind words from other woman congratulating her on getting sweet revenge against the woman behind her in line.
As she was heading for the exit of the bakery, Blossom decided to get one more dig into the woman. “I looked the pair straight in the eye and asked, ‘could you please open the door for me? My hands are a bit full.’”
The woman, who was visibly angry and accompanied by another one of her friends, did as she was told. “Reluctantly, one woman held the door open before following me outside.”
She closed out her post by proclaiming: “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”
