I've switched over to adult ICU Nursing in the past couple of years and one of my biggest peevs is the amount of fat people having orthopedic surgery - hip replacements, knee replacements - basically because they have become so fat, their joints have crapped out.

Actually, I am sick and tired of these fat fucks. They get these joint replacements done without any thought to addressing the issues that caused them to land in hospital in the first place.

They are a prick to look after, are a risk to staff - particularly from a manual handling and safety perspective - & their outcomes are not so great. They often end up having multiple surgeries and yet they remain the fat fucks they've always been.

Fat people should be banned from surgery until they lose a significant amount of weight.
