And how is it that people don't get that chicken broth is not vegetarian??
I won't get started, but that is one the things that bug me the most...chicken/beef/etc stock IS NOT BLOODY VEGETARIAN! *breathes*
I'm in my last year of highschool now, and have been veg since I was 10. I went through the angry stage for a few years (when I was around twelve). My mum was excellent support for my being veg (she owns the only vegetarian cafe in my town, so I've never suffered there *G*), however, my extended family was the problem, mainly my cousins. We'd have afternoon teas at my Nanna's house after school, and she'd serve up little party pies, sausage rolls, pizza (ham) slices, cocktail sausages and all that sought of stuff, and never know what in the world she could serve me...my cousins would sit around eating all this, me eating whatever was on the table I could eat...and they'd pull of the tops of their party pies and start waving them under my face, going "mmm, smell the meat! The dead animal! The gravy covered flesh!!" I'd almost throw up on them, and none of the adults ever stopped them. I'd get comments from them all constantly about how I was just doing it for attention, and that I probably sneaked meat all the time (*rolls eyes*) and how I was gonna die 'cause I was so unhealthy without meat in my diet.
It drove me up the damn wall. I had processed meat put under my nose (and once actually smooshed into my face) for years at that table. But I got through it. I hated it, though. lol....but after that, I'd go home where mum had bought home her vegie nacho sauce and she'd do me up a big plate of her special nachos, or a huge slice of her brown rice bake, or her ministrone, or vegetarian lasagna, all with one of her big salads and scoff this delicious, healthy food down and think "HA!" to them.
And that was a big babble about nothing all that important...except to say-people can be ignorant and plain rude...try and ignore them while knowing that you're taking care of your body, and putting into it what you want. It sucks how ignorant restraunts can be in vegan or veggie meals...but one day, we'll have Foxy's restruants to go to
