    :hmmmm2: that is very strange, to be honest. Maybe they are just making conversation?

    Anyway, chances are they won't ask the same thing more than once.

    Very strange indeed, maybe the look at me and think i don't eat a lot because i appear thin....

    that however is false there are many different people who ask me this but sometimes it's the same person asking me

    Maybe they are concerned. Maybe they are just curious.
    If someone asked me that more than once I'd sarcastically say 'hmm.. I'm getting a strange sense of deja vu' and leave it at that.

    No... not eating enough, if they're asking if you've skipped meals.

    :dontknow: I wouldn't read too much into it to be honest, even if a lot of people are saying it.

    well the first week was pretty decent and then they just dropped off hard from there and it got to the level where it was worse than the previous caters we had....

    i mean i don't want 2 croissants for breakfast, because to me that doesn't constitute a proper breakfast for me, also i don't want a continental i'm not eating a few slices of ham and a tiddly little bit of fruit and cheese for breakfast that's not going to keep anyone going
