Yeah, it’s not as if he was rubbing his meat..in…..her….face…. Sorry distracted myself there. @scrdva well said, meatatarians (haha) like me have rights too! Does your bf only eat meat (makes him a carnivore) or does he eat other stuff too? (Omnivore)
Yeah what is with the maniacal vegetarians lately. Those of us who’ve been vegetarian for most of our lives are getting a really bad rap from the new hipsters. Like shut up and eat whatever you like already and leave other people alone.
@ Markaccus, he will eat potatoes, corn, pasta, rice and meat. He will eat carrots if I make them mushy in a cottage pie or something. Our kids eat both meat and veggies and know never give mom a chicken nugget or dad a carrot stick
To be fair, in a way it IS common courtesy, but not because of the meat – because of the smell. A lot of meats have a really strong smell. I’ve been on trains and buses before when someone has got on and whipped out some kind of super smelly sandwich and the smell fills up the carriages and I end up gagging. If I want to eat in an enclosed public place I normally make sure what I’m eating isn’t smelly or the area isn’t busy. In London, there are even signs on the buses requesting you not to eat things with strong smells so it’s not just me.
Granted it seems like this girl was talking more about the fact that he was eating meat at all rather than the smell, which is a bit weird and selfish, but it’s not like she yelled at or attacked him. She asked quite politely. Doesn’t make it right but it could have been a lot worse.
