I got a new one, regarding Thanksgiving when I asked her to try and vegetarianize at least ONE (just one) of her traditional meals. I wasn't asking her to cook me a SEPERATE meal, just switch out chicken broth for veggie chicken-style broth.
Mom: Do you expect me to cook you a seperate meal when you sit on the couch?
Me: Last time I checked, I've helped you cook since I was a child. Plus, I usually end up making my own meal in addition to helping you with yours, so I do more work.
Mom: Just cook your own meal.
Me: Do you not remember the last 3 years? I try and you end up yelling at me for being in the kitchen and wanting one burner.
Me: Heaven forbid you try to be nice to me just once.
Mom storms off mad.
Really? People are absolutely ridiculous! This is why I don't get along with omnis sometimes. The omnis are going to DIE if they don't have chicken broth in their soup and real marshmallows on their yams. If I cook a special dish for everyone to share, should I have an ambulance ready just in case the vegetarian dish kills them?
For the most part, my family is selfish and completely closed minded to my decision. They keep throwing it in my face that I'm a vegetarian, yet they're "Christians" who care about all life? BS. I can't wait to move out.
THIS YEAR: I'm going to prepare my food the day before and just heat it up. They get fresh food when I get leftover type... doesn't that show you the type of people I'm related to? And they wonder why I hate the holidays.
