I thought this was a bit funny and bizarre- I just rsvp'd to DP's work christmas function via email (he asked me to) and I mentioned I was vegetarian. The girl wrote back "Sure, we have two vegetarian meal options, grilled fish or vegetable kebabs".
Er, last I checked fish is not vegetarian lol. I know some people don't eat meat and just eat fish but I'm pretty sure that's called something else...pescetarian or something?? Why do people expect vegetarians must eat fish, or even chicken? They are clearly animals too!
I bit my tongue and just wrote back "Vegetable kebabs thank you" but I so wanted to say something!
I'm a recent vego so I guess this is just the start for me of people saying or doing silly things like that
I also need to formulate a witty response for when friends and family find out I'm veg now and make the usual comments "But what will you eat??", "Humans are MEANT to eat meat you know!!"... So far I've mainly had "WHY would you want to do that??" to which I replied for ethical reasons etc etc.
I'm feeling very much put into a 'box' at this point which is frustrating because this decision has really made me feel more alive and more like 'me', I'm so much more educated of food, nutrition and where my food comes from. It's a good feeling
