Coffee for bullies?: Mom Buys Coffee For Women Who Insulted Her, A mother’s kind response to bullies after they insulted her at a coffee shop is going viral on Facebook.
Dianne Hoffmeyer was at Tim Hortons with her daughter, when she overheard women saying negative things about her weight.
She told WXYZ she recalled them saying, “Oh look at her hair, it’s nasty looking and the roots are coming through,” and “Oh she’s a whale, oh the whale needs to eat.”
Instead of losing her temper, Hoffmeyer decided to pay it forward and buy the women coffee.
Hoffmeyer recently lost 177 pounds, and had been feeling proud of herself.
She also took to Facebook to address the incident.
“To the 2 mean bitter ladies that were standing in line at Tim Hortons in Fort Gratiot behind me. I could hear you. I could hear the hurtful things you said about me. Sorry that my hair needs to be re-colored and the roots bothered you,but I have children that need to be taken care of. They come first. You both were right when you said I didn’t need the small box of tim bits because I already looked… like a whale,” the post said, according to WXYZ.
She said she paid for the coffee, because she wants her children to know there are good people in the world.
“You both should be ashamed of yourselves. But to show that my mother raised me better, I’d like to say YOUR WELCOME. Because this ‘Fat Retarded Lard [expletive]’ paid it forward and I bought your coffee’s this morning,” Hoffmeyer said in the Facebook post.
Should she encounter the women again, or should they read this, Hoffmeyer said, “I’d like to buy them another cup of coffee, and talk to them. And explain to them how it made me feel.”
