Subway's new commercial says 'make any sub California style by adding avocado & bacon'.....Bacon? Really?

On Sunday my boyfriend and I went to a friend-of-a-friend's house to watch the Game of Thrones premiere. It was us, two other couples, and another dude. About five minutes after we arrived, the home's resident returned from a food run with mac and cheese, bacon mac and cheese, corn dogs, BLTs, grilled cheese sandwiches, etc. Each person was specifically handed what they had ordered, while boyfriend and I stood by awkwardly. About five minutes after they all dig in and start to eat, one of them looks over at me (as if just remembering) and says "oh, we have some hummus in the fridge if you want something vegan."

Great, thanks. I'm sure there was absolutely nothing on the menu at that place I would have wanted to order anyway, so thanks for never bothering to show it to me or letting us know you were placing an order.

Thankfully I'd already eaten and after 14+ years of this I'm reasonably cynical enough to feed myself before heading out to any 'friend-of-a-friend' type gathering. But regardless of whether I'm vegan or GF or diabetic or anything slightly-out-of-the-'norm', it's forking rude to just order food and eat it while I stand there awkwardly having never even offered to show me the menu or make another accommodation. It's especially irking because BF told me on the way over there "oh yeah, [Offerer of Hummus] said there would snacks, and lots of vegan food."

jeebus christmas, no kidding. i just got forwarded something "OH NOES! LOOK WHAT'S NEXT! GMO TREES!" Uh, i hate to be the one to break it to you fella, but many trees have been GMO for quite some time now. Chances are the paper you're reading or wiping your pooter with were made with them. Alas, I cannot respond the way I want to.

Erika, that is flat-out rude and I'd be stabby.

Jesus, Erika - what dicks! That is seriously rude. Why on earth do people seem to think that basic manners don't apply coz vegan?

Seriously. That is unbelievably rude and thoughtless.

Good Grief Ericka. That was super rude of them. But like you, I am a veteran cynic and I too eat before I go to anyone's party/get together.

Oh, and for the record, I eat organic food when I can afford it, because I think it tastes better! And the superpowers of course.

Of course, these are likely the same people who turn around and say "ugh, vegans can never eat *anything*!" because they have deprived us of any opportunity to eat *something*.

I didn't say anything to my boyfriend at the time or on the walk home, but it's been weighing on me and I think I will talk to him about it tonight.

Is your boyfriend vegan too? If not, they didn't ask him either which is doubling down on the dickery.

my fb feed is full of talk of the rodeo a few towns over this weekend and my friend's kid's 4-h sheep.

I can't wait until all the backyard chicken people become backyard sheep people.

Mark my words. It's coming.

I for see goats first, since goat cheese/milk is totally "in" right now?

Or llamas. Llamas would make me happy.

My family had goats when I was younger, but they were rescue goats. They were pretty much evil.

They're cute when they're tiny and huggable. They're evil* when they bleat alllllll night, and then jump on you like puppies but they're not puppies, they're big and heavy and they have hooves.




*I don't really think they're evil, they were just very difficult to care for, but of course I loved them anyway.

The dickhead was the bf! Well, not really, but I asked and found out that they had asked him about ordering food and he had declined on both our behalf (behalves?) and then simply not said anything to me about it. so we had a talk about how totally awkward I was left feeling as a result and next time don't assume the vegan doesn't want anything or that there won't be anything for her on the menu; le her feel the disappointment with her own eyes. So it's all good now!

After college one of my housemates had goats. (Why?!) They lived in the backyard, and, to be honest, I didn't care for them. They were loud and annoying.

well, Erika, good, I guess? At least you can talk to him about it and hopefully move forward.

The last house I lived in in NJ had goats next door (the kid had a cow milk allergy so they kept goats for milk and 4H and all that crepe). the billy goat smelled SO BAD that it drowned out the cow manure they spread on the fields and the rotting smell of silage. I don't remember the bleating but i remember that smell. ^shudder^

The first boy I kissed lived on a farm and he smelled SO MUCH like goat, it was horrible. He also stuck his tongue into one of my nostrils.. It's pretty amazing I wasn't put off kissing forever.
