Being a vegan isn’t easy.
I am not speaking from experience as the only thing I have ever tried was being a vegetarian and that only lasted for a few years. That is because restricting your food preferences can cause a lot of problems, especially in countries where everyone eats meat and dairy. This is true for every gathering you go to and it might even come off as rude if you don’t eat anything over there. However, most vegans don’t really make a big deal over this.
I am not saying that people shouldn’t try to make at least a few dishes for everyone, even vegans but it is not compulsory if the person is not family. It is obviously a decent thing to do but not everyone does that. However, that is certainly the problem we are facing today. Because this particular brother was perfectly fine making a whole vegan meal. And he was pretty careful in checking everything. He thought everything would go fine but it did not.

Things are not as they seem as he was pretty accommodating in my opinion.
He was pretty careful when cooking the food.
He thought everything would go perfectly fine as he had done what needed to be done.
From the sound of it, he made some pretty tasty dishes.
However, things soon started going down.
She apparently had a different dinner in mind and she wasn’t willing to budge.
The food was vegan but it wasn’t the healthiest option which is perfectly fine.
So she ate nothing and his brother backed her up.
However, I don’t understand what he was supposed to do.
From what I can see, he really did try his best. While his comment about the disorder was not a nice thing to say, it is not as if he did it unprompted. He thought his brother’s girlfriend’s behavior was rude so anyone would be annoyed. And his brother didn’t even apologize, rather than he was okay with taking his girlfriend’s side and calling him out. I don’t know what else he could have done. Even when I was a vegetarian, I was never this entitled and would feel happy eating whatever was available granted there was no meat in there.
I understand that she trying to be careful at first but she steered right into rude behavior quite soon.
Unsurprisingly, people were 100% on his side.
I don’t understand how the girlfriend thought that this was okay.
I can’t really say anything about the disorder but it was certainly rude.
This type of behavior is exactly the reason vegans get a bad name everywhere.
Most people would be fine eating that but not her.
If she was that picky, she should have brought her own food.
His response was quite legendary in my opinion.
It is not right to be this picky at someone else’s home.
If she was on a diet then she should have said so.
If there was a health reason, she could have told them so I doubt it.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think his response was perfect or should he have been nicer? What would you have done in this situation? Comment down below and let us know. Also, don’t forget to share this story with your friends so they can join in the discussion as well.
