Fish smells TERRIBLE when re-heated, say, in a break room microwave.

There must be a break room right above the women's bathroom on my floor. I walked in yesterday and it smelled like fish so bad in there. At least, I hope it was fish.

All workplaces should have a no fish in the microwave rule.

It's a slippery slope though. Someone posted a note that said something along these lines, then people kept adding on additional foods including Thai, Indian, popcorn...

I have to agree on the popcorn one, but only because people are idiots and burn it.

I was going to post this. Anything with a strong smell would be up for debate, probably. I like the way curries smell, but a lot of people don't.

Here is a scene from my work place:

"It smells like a dead rodent in this room. I wonder if one died in the wall."

"Oh no, that smell is Butternut's lunch."

I was eating kimchee for the record.

Well that's ironic, considering your co-workers (assuming they're not vegetarians) are the ones eating dead animals.

I have a coworker who always manages to mess up the microwave. I have no idea what buttons she pushes, but today she managed to make it say "error," a message I did not know microwaves could even display.

That's not actually a vegan pet peeve, though.

I have another coworker who likes those Lean Cuisine tuna noodle dinners. Luckily I like her otherwise!

That's as impressive as a cat peeing on the shower drain (which I genuinely find impressive).

There is this lean cusine frozen dinner, forgot exactly which one it is, but it is vegetarian. They sell them in the vending machine in my office.

It literally smells like vomit. Soooo gross. Actually worse than fish.

it's not just me either, I remember my partner bought one of those at the store once, and complained that it smelled and tasted like barf.

I firmly believe that all TV dinners smell like vomit except for Amy's Black Bean Enchiladas. Whenever I bring those into work I get tons of coworkers telling me how delicious it smells. I need that sauce recipe!

When I read this instead of "betting on horses=big" my brain read "betting on horses=pig" and I immediately started picturing happy pigs wearing jogging suits running around a track chasing an apple.... I would say I need more coffee, but my brain seems to be in awesome mode right now so im just going to sit back and see where it takes me...

I ate natto on a train once. Oops. I don't know what I was thinking. I was in Japan, so maybe I ignorantly assumed that it's only Westerners who find the smell offensive.

My coworkers and I are hard-core chip addicts, and they have finally started checking labels when it's their unofficial turn to obtained our precious fried potatoes. Success! The gas station attendant is onto us...

Oh right. This is about pet-peeves. Oh! The vegan police on a FB vegan group in my community are always whining when someone mentions a delicious vegan option at a non-vegan restaurant, insisting we must ONLY support 100% vegan businesses, all the time. So basically every time a veg-curious person joins the group, they are freaked right out and assume that vegans are crazypants and veganism is inaccessible. Plus, honestly, the vegan options at non-vegan places in my city are SO MUCH BETTER than the food at the vegan restaurants. I'm all for supporting the vegan businesses, I guess, but if omni places are raising the bar on options, I almost feel it is my duty to support and applaud them!

The Mr.'s vegan pet peeve about me: I'm always using the food processor, which is a pain in the asparagus to clean. Hahaha. I guess it's my pet peeve, too. I mean, I love my food processor, but it seems like everything I make these days calls for it for one recipe component or another!

I get annoyed with people who swear blind they always ask where their meat comes from etc, despite not having done so five minutes previously when we were ordering food...

Oh, God. The vegan police on facebook are killing me. And so are the people who think vegans are crazy that are responding to them. I don't like being judged because of the crazy shenanigans of someone else.

Vegetarian corn dogs. I hate seeing them because I get all excited for like 2 seconds before I remember, duh, eggs. I made my own corn dogs once, but just too much work. I should be able to buy them at the grocery store.

Omni restaurants that say they are happy to accomodate vegan diners, and then serve you PLAN PASTA and charge you $20 for it. Kill me.

I am a cook and made some farking banging lentils this Wednsday and also had just taken some brown basmati rice out of the oven. We had a 30 top come in and one person requested a vegan meal. My boss insisted I make them a vegetable stir-fry with white rice. WTH?? I am still so mad at him.

Cedar Lake corn dogs are vegan!

Which... doesn't mean you can find them where you are.

So... yeah.

Actually this happened to me on Saturday.

1) Go to vegan restaurant which is closed down
2) Look in VegDC, nearby restaurant is said to have many vegan options. Go to nearby restaurant, look at menu, talk to staff and there are 3 vegan side options, none of which look very filling. Now if I was with non-veg people, I would've made due but damnit I wanted a good meal. (We did have a good meal after though at a different restaurant)

I am tired of listening to vegans who talk about how compassionate they are to animals and then fail to extend that to human animals. Goddamn.
