#34: Guilt Trips

My Wii Fit makes me feel so bad about myself every time I turn it on. Even if I go only a couple of days between using it, the stupid thing is all, “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!” As though it’s just been sitting there, waiting for me to return, but knowing I probably won’t. And instead of feeling sadness, it just feels scorn for me, and it can’t help but snipe when I finally come back. Listen up, Wii Fit: passive-aggression does not work on me. If anything, it will make me use you less out of spite. And then we both lose.

Even worse is when I do use the Wii Fit every day, because it acts all surprised. “Wow, it takes real dedication to exercise daily!” I can just hear its condescension. “I can’t believe you somehow put down the potato chips and got your fat blob of a butt off the couch two days in a row! Make sure you don’t wear yourself out doing the hula hoop, now!”

Stupid Wii Fit. You’re not the boss of me.

    Wii Fit, designed by Nintendo, a subsidiary of Cyberdyne Corp. On August 21, 2010, it became self aware that you did exercise within the expected parameters. As such, you will be terminated.

    Just tell it you were too busy playing glamorous Wii tennis and bowling where the cool kids hang out. That should undermine its cockiness.

    haha, i have thought the same thing about wii fit. …i can feel it judging me >_>

  5. I constantly feel as though WiiFit is judging me. I wrote an essay about it once… You know you’ve hit a low point when you’re too ashamed to face your digital personal trainer because you know it will want to weigh you. I also always feel extremely huge when I climb on the step-board and it responds with “oof!” Little bastard WiiFit…

    Wii Fit always makes me feel guilty. I can’t even say no to the little Wii Fit Board who wants to give me a fitness tip because he hangs his head in disappointment. Stupid game.

    I have totally gone through this! The WII is psychic. It knew I hadn’t had breakfast and told me to eat a banana. How did it know I have bananas?! It also told my sister to spend more time with me, and her boyfriend to brush his teeth. How does it know these things?! Creepy…

    This is why I don’t use Wii Fit anymore. My family went on a 2 week vacation where we did a lot of hiking, bicycling, and walking, and when we returned and went back to using Wii Fit it ridiculed us. Not something that will encourage me to work out. I would rather go hiking; at least there no one is telling me I am slacking.
