UPDATE: Flipper the A-Hole

I was feeling guilty about the entry about the fat dude that walks around with his tiny arms and blank expression, not because I have a soul, but because I got so much crap about it. I think I convinced myself that I SHOULD feel guilty. Anyway, it got worse when I didn't see that fat f'er for over a month. It would be totally awful to rip on a guy and then have him die right afterwards.
A few weeks ago, I literally ran into him as I was turning a corner to get to a cafeteria. I mean, I bounced off him. I was extremely apologetic, even though it was half his fault, but he just gave me a dirty look and kept walking. The woman I was with noticed, too, and said something like, "Wow, you sure ruined HIS day." Apparently my very existence pisses him off so much that he can't even make eye contact with me.
About a week after that, my boss was having a celebration for some award that the team won. We were out in a public area, but the tables all said "reserved" and it was pretty obvious that it was a private celebration. That tiny-armed a-hole walked up, looked around, grabbed a plate, stacked about 4 pieces of pizza, and walked away. Only a few others at the table noticed. Strangely, no one was outraged. I tried to rally my boss and a few others, but the general consensus was that I should let it go.
That's a total dick move. People always have retirement parties or baby showers out in that area, and it's kind of a given that you don't just bust up there with your tiny arms and take their food.
