Don't tell me I'm getting fat!

New words & phrases:

  • Considerate
  • gain
  • direct
  • weight

Let's get started!

Japanese people are always so polite, maybe some of the most polite people in the world.  They are always considerate of other people's feelings and are careful with the words they choose.  However, one thing that surprises me is how Japanese people can so easily say "You're getting FAT", or "You got fat"!  It sounds too direct.  In English, usually people will say "Oh, it looks like you have gained a little weight." or "Have you put on some weight?"  I think it sounds a little softer.

After the holidays, have you put on any weight? コメントを残してください。

Have a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful day!
