Long story short, rude comment passed my direction in gym, along the lines of "double helping of arse" , I was dumbfounded! From a complete stranger

I've noticed there are some smartarses here so suggestions should I run into this queen gym bunny bee would be appreciated!

How's your self confidence?  I would respond to any comment by acting completely aloof.  Look them in the eye, hold your head up high, and don't say a word.

 

See, the real problem is any smartarse retort we come up with now is wasted as Queen Bee is already formulating her next rude comment. Unless you're fond of confrontation best bet is to take blizzard's advice.

If you enjoy confrontation it's probably best to attack something other than her appearance. I would probably imply that you overheard one of her "hangers on" (you implied she had something of a posse in another post) say what a lousy lover her boyfriend was.

I'm sure this approach is beneath your dignity so best rise above teh comments and let your self confidence shine through.

Smile and say hello or wave, it really winds them up as it's not the response they're expecting. People like that are just looking for a certain reaction and if they don't get it their brains go haywire.

here? what? no. untrue. Innocent

next time, put on a really commiserating expression and say, "oh, hi, sweetie. i'm so sorry about your face. insulting me certainly doesn't improve your looks, but i hope it makes you feel better. it certainly motivates me." then smile and ignore her.

catch their eye. smile. with genuine goodnatured compassion - not arrogantly! do your thing.

(or: "I may be fat, but you are ugly. and at least I can diet." Wink)

Hey guys, well went back and was going to totally take the higher ground and ignore them... However as I was walking in the door one of the trainers approached me and asked about those three girls. Turns out 4 other members ha complained about them in the last two days.. They have been asked to leave. They apparently were only on a one month intro trial to the gym through a groupon scheme. They have been asked to leave and not come back- yeah!!!

Thanks for all the answers, I agree taking the higher grind would have been the best option but Oooh sometimes some people need a whooping! ;-). And yes let's just say they all have the kind of beauty that comes off with a good scrub!

I think your typo says it all. I'm glad your problem got solved without too much hassle on your part.
