I went to a local grocery store to buy a quick lunch. Ended up buying some fresh fruit and a Lean Cuisine. The man at the checkout actually said this to me: "Good choice. Better than what you could have gotten at the other end of the store" (and he gestured toward the bakery).
I'm wondering if I'm being paranoid or was he making a remark about my weight? (I'm 50+ lbs overweight). Would he have said this to a thin person? (I doubt it!)
Have you ever experienced this type of behavior from clerks about what you buy? What would you have said in response?

Sounds like he was just making small talk. Don't sweat the small stuff.
I'm small and I usually get negative comments when I buy healthy food: "Look how thin you are, you probably only eay salad" and other similar things.
Some people simply have piss poor judgment; I doubt he meant any harm.
Hey, they WERE good choices. He was probably just relieved to see SOMEBODY with something other than donuts! I think you are maybe a wee bit paranoid--but that does not mean they are not out to get you, right?
I try to take everything in the most positive light, then it takes a really nasty remark to get to me, and frankly, most people don't seem to be that nasty!
He was probablu just making small talk. or who knows maybe he's watching what he eats too. so he was being sincere. that was a better choice than what the bakery offers. im sure he sees many people go in around lunch time and just grab stuff from the bakery.
Thanks everybody for your comments. I'm glad to see I was just being paranoid!
