I know there is a similar thread going on here right now that deals with issues with partners, family etc. But how do you deal with your meat eating friends?
Mine tend to see me as a bit loopy i think, most times its impossible to go out with them without a dig about me being a vegan or enviornmentalist. Although im kind of used to it, im starting to get a little pissed off by it. Same old dig, old jokes when will they stop.
Last night i had a call from some new friend iv recently made, basicly my ex told this particular person from this group i was a vegan, who must have told everyone else in this group because last night while making arrangements to travel down to a festival this weekend, this guy whos driving said he wanted to make a really early start as he has this fave greasy spoon place the whole group love cause they do the best bacon sandwiches. OK i said, not making the slightest bit of fuss, then he adds "we like our meat see, thats why we have those pointy teeth in our mouths" then falls about laughing. Ah yeah i said but ever tried eating a raw swede without those pointy teeth, ouch needs pointy teeth for that i said laughing (well more gritting my teeth really). All goes quiet, "thats why man invented fire" he says back (could tell after the pause he had to stop and think up a reply) He then starts making ugg sounds on the phone, i hear others laughing. Oh well i said you wouldnt have had much variety before the discovery of fire then would you.
I get the feeling the three of them are going to be questioning, digging and making jokes all the way there tomorrow.
Wonder which one will be first to say "did you know a cabbage screams when you pick it". And i wonder which one will get the most defensive when i explain the nervous system of a cabbage being different to that of an animal and how a cabbage dosnt **** itself while standing waithig to have its neck slit.
Wonder if ill still get a lift back after too.
Know when you get that feeling?
