Obese receptionists at health clinics and hospitals

    I don't know, but I begin to lose faith in the facility and the rest of its staff when the receptionists are ginormous and flubbery and look like their high blood pressure is about to make them explode... Some even smell of cigarette smoke.

    It is not rocket surgery to at least have healthy looking staff as the first people you see at medical facilities. I mean if gyms have people on the front lines that at a minimum, look healthy... why can't hospitals and clinics?

    I imagine such jobs require basic phone answering and data entry skills and there must be tons of people who can do them. Maybe they are union jobs and management can't tell these folks to lose weight, stop smoking, or at least wash their size xxxxx medical clinic pant suits at least once in a while. Or maybe they are managed by Jabba the Hut. I don't know...

    Also, seeing staff by the side and back entrances of hospitals and medical clinics smoking cigarettes is not the best promotion for the facility either IMO...

    Fat chicks make great admin people. They don't have illusions about where they are going to be in 10 years. They are there for the long haul, so they take the job seriously.

    They are also wider and more stable in their chairs so there won't be as many oops fallovers when they go reach for something.
