Some I got today and yesterday...



TONIGHT AT DINNER: THE PERSISTENT QUESTIONER



"So are you a vegetarian?"



"Why is that?"



"How long has that been going on?"



[After answering all these questions, I attempt to change the subject. But he comes back to it later on with...]



"So you don't eat fish? Wow."



Me: "No, I don't eat fish. (To my husband) How's your salad, honey? This bread is great, isn't it?"



[But he still can't let it go, so later on I get...]



"Oh wow, so I just realized why you asked for that appetizer without the foie gras! That's animal flesh too, huh?"



DUDE. LET IT GO!



YESTERDAY AT LUNCH: THE JUST PLAIN RUDE B*TCH



[After asking me if I was a vegetarian, and me saying yes] "Why would you want to do THAT??"



Me: "Well, I really like animals..."



Her: [defensive] "Well, I like animals too!"



Later in the same lunch, which I didn't finish: "Oh look, Ashlend doesn't like her food. She wishes it had meat in it."



Sigh.

I think my answer to that would be "No, eating with rude people just ruins my appetite".

convo between me and a guy at a pub yesterday

"so what societies did you join at uni?"

"oh just the veggie/vegan one"

"oh right I'm guessing your veggie then?"

"yup"

"don't you feel tired all the time?"

"Nope. In fact I feel tonnes better."

"oh.... my *random friends cousin or something* is vegetarian and she never has any energy"

"Oh right. Well I'm full of beans actualy.I was anemic when I ate meat actually and now I'm not. Tell your friend to eat less junk food and more veg"

"Aren't most veggies always tired?"

"No."

"how long have you been veggie?"

"bout a year and a half"

"and your not tired"

"not at all"

"Oh."



I wanted to scream.

I never had someone calling me an idiot because I was vegetarian. But be sure that after such a comment I would come pretty hard on him. Grrrrrrrrrrr



I hate when people are intolerant but intolerant and insulting...I would

I have no idea why he's talking about protein & being healthy since he smokes, which wasn't too good for you last time I checked! He even used the "some of my best friends" line to defend himself later on. His friends must have very low standards. Still, I don't expect someone who thinks "Your mum" jokes are the height of humour to be pleasant.

On Thursday at lunch, some kid (whom I actually HATE, in fact I could care less if he died, though I realize that's a horrible thought to think) threw, threw ham at my face.



Normally I'm not physically a very violent person but I went over there and kicked him. Hard.



I hope he's sterile now that I've kicked him there, removing him from the gene pool would be wonderful.



He's probably one of the only people I truly could care less about.

Your post gave me flashbacks at how mean kids can be in high school!!! Hang in there! Life isn't so bad once the teenage years are over!

As bad as his actions were, violence is never the answer. If you think going around kicking people is the way to deal with them you have a hard life ahead of you.

i've never understood the idea of complete non-violence. that is to say, i understand the concept, but i cannot see myself not reacting with violence under threat of harm for others or myself, regardless of doctrine.

Girl at a party who found out my boyfriend and I are vegetarians: "You're vegetarians?! My husband shot a bear!!"

Us: Silence.

Girl: Bear meat is really healthy.

Us: *Exchanging glances*



Yeah, it didn't make sense to us either.

Sure, it's healthy. If you don't count the parasites you can only get from bear meat.

Many years ago when I met my first set of in-laws for the first time, they had chili one night. Now I was accustomed to down south, hot as heck, made with beef (yeah, I know, but this was over 20 years ago) chili. I knew something was weird about this chili..... then they told me. Bear chili. Don't think I need to say anything more.

kudos. people do the same to me down here. they are like "you dont need to lose any weight." no, but im not only eating this way to stay slim. southern culture is all about eating fried, buttered, nasty stuff. ive only been a vegan for a few weeks (before that i spent 9 years as a vegetarian), but i still wouldnt eat that stuff. there's one restaurant down here that i went to-- i ordered the vegetable soup thinking it would be all veggies and such, but there was GROUND BEEF in it! i had no idea...

Ugh. I can sympathize. I live in northern Indiana, and traditional "Amish-style" restaurants abound. I've been to one once since becoming vegan (with my family) - the rice had chicken, the green beans had bacon, naturally all the entrees were animal-based. . . and even if they weren't, it was all covered in butter anyway! I believe I had some ice berg lettuce with no dressing and a water. The waiter looked at me like I had a screw loose.

my future inlaws:



"i believe that we must keep eating animals because if we stop there will be too many and they will start to eat us. We have to control there population otherwise they will kill us off. That is why people hunt, in order to keep back the animals that over populate and threaten us."



This comes from someone who i believed was smarter then that. I was shocked such a stupid comment/belief is held by anyone, let alone someone that seemed rather intelligent.

ya, a cow, with 2 stomaches is going to start to crave human flesh. THATS going to happen. what about them chickens... they will band together and hunt us (like the wolves stock there prey). Please. There is no fear of even predatory animals (which ominivores dont usually eat) of threatening human survival.

If that kid did it to me, he'd still be in the hospital

Almost every friday, I go country line dancing with some work buddies. It's great excercise and a lot of fun. (and hell, why not solidify the Texas stereotype,lol)



Statement I received from a coworker when I invited him along once:



"Vegetarians don't dance or like beer, you sure you like it?!"



Still can't figure that one out

My dad said something today... It was not stupid, it was actually funny.



I'm having lunch with my parents tomorrow, and my Dad said that he was cooking snails for the afternoon. I said I don't eat snails anymore (something I loved before) and my dad said:



Dad: You don't even eat snails?

Me: Yeh, dad, snails are not vegetables, last time I checked.

Dad: With all this, I don't even now if you "eat" your boyfriend. *laughs*
