My friend, every time she saw me would keep telling me that I am too thin, that I have lost weight and so on. (I weigh 168-174 lbs.) now I got a wee fed up with it so the last time she said it I replied that the good Lord made some of us to look like bean poles and others to look like a barrel of beer with 2 poles for legs. Know what folk she ain't spoke to me since. Can't think why, any ideas would be appreciated.

If she was a bit chunky your friend might have taken that comment as a personal affront. I think that I stole my next line from here..."Tact is the art of when to be big and when to belittle."
