From a Concerned Neighbor | BBW Life | Scoop.it

I can't believe that someone would actually do this to another human being. A friend of mine is obese and has been struggling to become healthy and physically fit. He has dropped 80lbs in less than a year and has been working very hard! Yesterday one of his asshole neighbors put this in his mailbox!! It brought him to tears and embarrassment. It has filled me with rage beyond words... This is so sad. I hope this person has karma serve them well! Let's all show my friend how proud we are of him!!!
