In the My 600-lb Life episode “Tiffany’s Story,” Tiffany is an obese young woman who loves to go food shopping. “Aside from eating, it’s my favorite thing to do,” she says as she’s seen in a grocery store pulling butterscotch pudding and maple syrup from the shelves. “It fills me with such excitement when I find what I want,” she explains before she tells her boyfriend she needs to leave the store because her hip hurts. It hurts to walk back to the car. And then it hurts her emotionally in the parking lot. As Tiffany walks slowly to her car, another car beeps at her repeatedly.
Although there doesn’t appear to be any traffic in the parking lot, the driver who beeped tells Tiffany “You shouldn’t block traffic like that.” She goes on to tell Tiffany, “You’re rude. You’re impolite.” Tiffany apologizes to the woman, “I’m sorry, miss, I’m handicapped,” to which the woman says, “You think that matters to me?” Tiffany says “stuff like that happens to me all the time when I go out.” She says, sitting in the car, “People are really brutal and judgmental when you’re my size.” The moment of sympathy is broken when Tiffany asks her boyfriend, who’s packing the back of the car with groceries, “can you bring me my cookies. I need those please.” New episodes of My 600-lb Life air Wednesdays at 8 pm on TLC. [BONUS: TLC G0 App found here lets you stream any TLC show. Download is FREE.]
