Well, 3 months of no animal products and tonight I ate 3 bites of a veggie wrap that I sent back 2 times thinking they put butter on it, asking for no dairy and eggs, to find that it was mayonnaise.
Super annoying and gross.

They took it off the check, and were super apologetic, but it is making me nauseous for the past 2 hours. I know its all in my head- why I'm nauseated. I think thats irritating me more, that its all in my head and it was a mistake, I should physically get over it.

At least I know I'm a vegan who is totally grossed out by animal products for sure!

Cut off your tongue!
I kid, I kid!

Sorry to hear you got sabotaged, Molly.

Sleep on it and get over it. Two things you can do going forward, say "no dairy , eggs, or mayo" when dealing with wait staff. You can also just stop eating out, restaurants are gross to begin with.
Good luck.

lol-I am totally beating myself up over nothing- so silly! I know!
I am also totally losing my faith in restaurants. I am also sick of having to play the "allergy" card. I just want to say, "I'm vegan" and then they magically go- "oh! yes! of course! That means zero animal products!"
There is one or two places you can do that here- the rest give you a puzzled look and serve it to you anyways!

I don't go out much and when I do its noteworthy how bad they treat me or screw up my food! lol. I should open up my own place

That's good that they were nice about it after. Most places could give a you know what... lol. But this stuff will happen every once in a while, you can't sweat the small stuff, as you are doing great things already. (and at least it was only mayo.... a few months ago i unknowingly ate fish :S)

This is why if I eat out I only usually eat at vegetarian/vegan restaurants. I've got other dietary restrictions aside from being veggie that prevent me from eating at most places anyways because the food they serve is just wayyy too unhealthy.

Sorry that happened to you. I have learned to carefully inspect and dissect my food when possible at restaurants to make sure they are clear of any animal products. I won't give up on eating out though because mistakes happen. I've gotten some great meals at non veg restaurants before.

I would be totally grossed out though about the mayo because I've always despised mayo with a passion. I won't even attempt to try Veganaise because of my repulsion towards mayo.

Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and next time, order it with no butter or mayo. And remember, everyone in here has made mistakes, either of their own doing, or someone else's doing. And don't worry about using the allergy card. It's what's really going on in my family.

awe dont stress out !
honestly, eating out at any restaurant that isnt totally vegan ...there's probably going to be a good chance of cross-contamination.
on a side note: ewewewew prior to becoming vegan i've always hate mayo with a passion. i would've blew chunks everywhere. back home i wouldnt even eat anything that was next to the mayo jar in the fridge.
i cringe just thinking of mayo.
