ARG! Reaching for my (delicious) tofu breakfast shake this morning that I had stuck in the fridge, what did my lovely mother place on top of my tupperware container? A package of veal!
I think I'm going to be sick...

Yuck!

There's nothing better than a vegan kitchen! No worries like random meat packages dripping on the veggies and such.

Yuck. Meat on your breakfast shake! How gross!

I have a part-time housekeeping job. Last week a woman asked me to clean her refrigerator for her. On the bottom shelf she had a package of raw meat defrosting and it was dripping blood all over the shelf. When I picked it up to clean under it leaked all over my hands. I had to put it in a bowl to contain all the blood that kept dripping out of it. It has been so long since I had meat in my home that I had almost forgotten how disgusting blood oozing slabs of dead animal are.

Maybe you could have your own shelf in the fridge so there's no chance of a serious gross-out like that again. You can keep your stuff separate, and she can keep her drippy meat packages separate.

Not to mention the food safety aspect of the whole thing. It is generally recommended that meats be placed on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator so that if they do leak, they aren't dripping down onto other foods.

Personally, I don't know why anyone would consider something 'food' that is also a biohazard.

"Hey mom. You know what they say. This veal probably has more room in the fridge than it did when it was alive."

:sneaky: ain't I a stinker?

Someone put a defrosting package of deer meat on the top shelf without a bowl in the fridge. The thing leaked blood all over the place and on top of my container of hummus.

I have my own shelf. Ask your mom about that, it makes things a lot easier, for you and them.

Even if I didn't, it's not as big of a deal for me because my family doesn't eat much meat, mostly because I'm vegan and my brother doesn't like it (except for ham, which is ironic, because of how much he loves living pigs). They mostly store dead animals in the freezer. Although, it is kind of gross reaching in to get a tofutti cutie and having to stare at all the meaty cheese pizzas and frozen dead flesh.

ugh grosssss!

my mum defrosts the meat unpackaged on a plate in the cupboard (where the plates are) and it always freaks me out (and grosses me out) to open up the cupboard to get a plate or cup or bowl and see a huge slap of bloody flesh sitting there. it is so disgusting and i have to get my plate/bowl/cup from another cupboard just because i hate that it is in the same area as the open meat. ughguhguhg.

That is a very unsafe practice.
Perhaps you should inform your mom that meat should be thawed in the refrigerator (or in cold water in the sink that is changed often)

That is gross.
I have one tiny draw at the bottom of the fridge, and my parents can't seem to keep their meat stuff out of it, including fast food stuff.... like KFC. -_- I especially hate when they ask me to get some package of meat for them, I hated touching the package when I still ate meat... let alone now.

I share a house with three omnivores, who the house is owned by. Sharing the space can be very hard, expecially when people don't realize how gross thawing meat products can be to others! I was blessed and got my own fridge, though. (An early wedding gift.)

I echo that getting your own "space" would be a good idea! Be it a shelf or a basket or a box, just somewhere safe you can keep your things.

(edited to add an extra thought or two.)
