I was talking to someone last week, and somehow it got brought up that I don't eat meat. After I said I don't eat meat, he said, "Really? So like... do you eat fish?" I said no. He said, "Oh, so you must be one of those... what are they called... vegans?" (Which, I am vegan, but it's a little more than not eating fish, silly!)
I guess people get the idea that vegan is a step beyond vegetarianism. But when you don't even know the definition of vegetarian... geez.
