After getting engaged, most people spend their time scrolling through Pinterest and dreaming about cake flavors. But after Cassie Young announced her own engagement, she had to take time out of daydreaming to respond to a fitness trainer who wouldn't take no for an answer.
He kept trying to make her feel bad about her body, but she wasn't about to let him have the last word.
And she's now our hero.
Meet Cassie Young.Cassie is a self-proclaimed "Jill of all trades" — she does radio, social media, writing, editing, photography, podcasting — basically a little bit of everything. In the middle of her crazy-busy life, something wonderful happened.
Cassie and her long-term boyfriend got engaged!Cassie and her boyfriend have been together for nearly ten years. Earlier this month, her boyfriend created an epic scavenger hunt in order to propose to her. She said yes, obviously. You don't say no to a scavenger hunt proposal. Before long, Cassie's new engagement started getting attention on social media. But it wasn't all "Likes" and supportive comments.
One person decided to reach out to Cassie to advertise his fitness training services.
via: FacebookThe initial pitch was innocent enough. The guy saw that a potential client had recently gotten engaged and decided to reach out to see whether his services would come in handy. Cassie politely declined his offer to "get her in shape" by responding that she already is in shape. That should have been the end of it. But it wasn't.
The guy doubled down and said that she'd regret not getting into better shape for her wedding.
via: Facebook"If you don't hire me, hire someone," he said. He then went on to "explain" that Cassie's wedding pictures will last forever (duh). She wouldn't want to torture her descendants with images of her looking any less than her best on her wedding day, would she? As if planning a wedding and starting a life with someone isn't hard enough...
Please tell us he did not actually say that to her!
via: GiphyBut he did. He totally did. He was probably expecting her to take his criticisms to heart and immediately hire him (because he's clearly delusional). Of course, that didn't happen. Instead, Cassie clapped back with a fierce response.
She told him that she wasn't worried about being 'fat' in her wedding pictures.
via: FacebookRather than being worried about what people think about her body hundreds of years from now, Cassie informed the fat-shamer that she was instead focusing on leaving an actual legacy. Because she has an actual life and isn't here for your negging.
