Maybe You Should Have Given Fatty A Piece

by Jeremy Schoemaker on April 4, 2011 · 59 comments

This past weekend I went back to my home town of Moline, IL for my parents 40th anniversary. My mom was a high school teacher and there was a ton kids who showed up to pay respects to my parents.

One girl who showed up was in my class of 1992. In High School she was totally smoking hot, probably the hottest girl in our class (she still looks good BTW for late 30’s).

Anyway she told me she didn’t use Facebook so I am guessing she will never see this since she isn’t online =P.

Long story short she came up to me and was like, “Hey please don’t take offense to this but in High School you super overweight, total loser who could not hold a job, and really everyone always felt sorry for your mom cause you were always getting in trouble. So what happened? Now you look good, and are very successful from what I hear”.

I looked at her and said, “Well, I got laid”.

She laughed and asked if a lot of chicks who would not have given me the time of day in High School find me online and hit me up.

I told her, “sure”.

She said, “what do you say to them”?

I told her I tell them, “Maybe you should have gave fatty a piece”.

Brilliant post:D

I’m pretty sure some variant of this applies to many of us in the online marketing space… :.)

Well, I think you just found the perfect title for your autobiography!

Ha haaaa, love it. ? We never really out grow High School huh? Fortunately I never had a problem in High School, I was part of the cool crowd. Not bragging or anything but it was what it was.

It’s funny though, never thought I’d be doing what I’m doing now. Can’t wait for my reunion to see how everyone turned out 10 years later, I’m good.

So did you do her?

Great story with a perfect ending. They always say that the people who were outsiders, looked at as losers, etc. are the ones who become successful in life, both business & love-wise.

Nice one…

11 Paul Avery

I wouldn’t give it to someone that I was not interested in because I was told that in 10 years they were going to be successful… in fact now (if I were single) I still wouldn’t give it to someone that I was not into because they had money.

12 Robby G

@Paul: Good point. Agreed.

13 Ed

There’s no way your mother was a teacher.

18 jackson

Perfect response. High school can be so difficult.

19 Travis

Totally awesome, I was a dork with piss poor grades and no athletic ability, so I just screwed around with computers and became a sw product developer. Most of the jocks are not so jockish anymore. I love going go reunions! :)

22 Zack Wenthe

Love it! How was the Quad Cities?

23 Brian P

Yup totally awesome man! Success is even more sweet when people did not respect you back in the day. It makes it all the more sweeter

24 fas

School get togethers can be fun.

25 MicroSourcing

“Hey please don’t take offense to this but in High School you super overweight…” – so you can be a woman in your late 30s and have the tact of a high school student.

26 Peter Joseph

AHHAA. this is a really funny post. Too bad for those people who looked down on you, back when you weren’t in shape and unsuccessful. BOO. they aren’t your real friends.

You are the epitome of this quote, “if you are absent during my struggle, do not expect to be present during my success”

Cheers to you!

All good, right. –> Except you’re still a pretty flabby guy, all things considered. … Why stop at flab… why not go for fit since you’ve already come this far?

Honest question. Answer is…?

That’s a little silly. You were both being superficial. What did she have going for her besides her looks?
