She asked him "How many have you given her?" and he goes "I don't know but she's eating them. When she's full, she'll stop." and she nearly flipped! She goes "I only give her 10! I don't want her fat!!!! How could you!" I nearly choked on my own breakfast and had to refrain from making some super smart aleck responses.
And people wonder why there are so many people with eating disorders of varying sorts... whether its anorexia, bulimia, compulsive overeating, etc.
