He Was Disgusted When She Sat Beside Him. Two Hours Later, His Mind Was Blown

November 25, 2015 3 min read

We hear it everywhere. That you can't judge a book by its cover, that it is what's inside that really counts. And yet, the message gets obliterated by everything else we do and say in life. Yes, we are biologically drawn to certain body types but it is more than that. Our media, our advertising, they tell us you have to be one way to look beautiful. You have to be thin. But sometimes, just sometimes, we meet someone who blows all this thinking right out of the water and turns everything you thought you knew about beauty on its head. She squeezed herself into the seat beside him on a plane. Her massive arm taking over the armrest, her size dwarfing him beside her. He recoiled. It would be a long flight beside this mammoth person! ec5b63a3-83f1-4992-af0f-1e32bd2df2ce_tablet She greeted him, offered a handshake, explaining "If we’re going to spend six hours side-by-side on this flight, we’d better be friends, don’t you think?” She went on and on about her trip to Hong Kong, about the gifts she would buy for her students where she taught. She talked about how excited she was to see her friends, not noticing for a second the coldness coming from the seat beside her. When the meals arrived, she was considerate, making sure he had room, telling him, "I don’t want to clobber you with my elephant size!” It was then that he started to notice something. That face he had been so disgusted by before, now seemed warm and full of smiles. His guard began to drop. He learned that she was well versed in a great many subjects from science to philosophy. He found her comments on even the most mundane things to be humorous and inspirational. At every turn, he was impressed by her intelligence. [bctt tweet="He Was Disgusted When She Sat Beside Him. Two Hours Later, His Mind Was Blown"] When the flight attendant came by to clear the plates, she made several jokes about her size, causing the attendant to laugh. "Have you ever thought about losing some weight?" he asked. "No," she said. "I’ve worked hard to get this way. Why would I want to give it up?” He asked if she was scared of cardiovascular disease or other health problems related to obesity. “Not at all. You only get the diseases if you’re worried about your weight all the time. You see advertisements from slimming centers that say, `Liberate yourself from your extra baggage so that you are free to be yourself.’ It’s rubbish!" she said. "You’re liberated only if you’re comfortable about who you are, and what you look like any time of the day and anytime of the year! Why would I want to waste my time on slimming regimes when I have so many other important things to do and so many people to be friends with? I eat healthily and walk regularly; I’m this size because I am born to be big! There is more to life than worrying about weight all day long.” "Besides," she said, "God gives me so much happiness that I need a bigger body to hold all of it! Why would I lose weight to lose my happiness?” Unable to deny the cleverness in her reasoning, he laughed. f9b2ad4d-dbb9-430e-bc20-4e64817ceea9_tablet But she wasn't done... “Folks often see me as a fat lady with big bosoms, big thighs and a big bottom that no man would even bother to cast a glance at. They see me as a slob. They think I’m lazy and have no willpower. They’re wrong," she explained. “I’m actually a slim person inside. I’m so full of energy that people won’t be able to keep up with me. This extra flesh is here to slow me down, otherwise I’ll be running everywhere chasing after men!” When he asked if men chased her, he was surprised to learn that not only was she happily married, men were still proposing to her! It was at this point that he noticed something. People were enthralled by her. By the end of the flight, the crew and half the cabin were joining in and laughing along with her. She was the center of attention and the cabin felt warm and inviting. When they arrived at the airport, they waved good bye. He watched her walk toward a large group of adults and children that cheered wildly when they saw her. She turned back and winked at him. It was then he knew for certain. She was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
