INVITATION: It's Just Not Funny Anymore

While we practice our spirituality and aim for higher planes and greater understanding, we can also look to our spirituality as a way to help make where we live, here and now, a better place for all beings and expand our compassion beyond what we were taught we could expect of ourselves and each other. It's not funny anymore to laugh this off or dismiss it as tradition or some necessary evil of life. It's not. It's just another choice. And we are here to learn how to choose, and to choose how to learn. So much love to anyone and everyone who keeps this in mind and aims not to escape this world, but be a better part of it.

A snap shot of how vegans are seen.

 

Tonight I invited a guy over to watch rupaul with my friends.

He shows up with a bag of “ Sour cream and onion “ chips.

 

He says “ I don’t know what vegans eat....i literally spent thirty minutes at the grocery store and thought this was the only option”.

 

 

I laugh and go “ You spent thirty minutes.....looking at chips to bring to a vegan party....and you pick the one with “ sour cream” in the title?”

I was amused but not slightly angry, no one cares. We had food. He could eat his chips if he wanted. It was just amusing.

 

He runs out of the house immediately, sends me a rant “ You vegans teamed up on me, this is why the movement never gets traction! You are self righteous! 

You should of at least thanked me for my effort in trying to understand! I did not have to bring anything! The vegan movement is entitled!”

 

How many times must I be called entitled for enduring stupidity?

Sometimes I think people do stupid stuff like this just to create drama. You can't tell me the store didn't have salt and vinegar chips. Or even just plain ones!

 

There's really no excuse today. A lot of junk food even has vegan labelling! If he really couldn't find anything else, he wasn't trying very hard.

It takes time to find vegan food in some places, but his response is "offended" and dramatic. If he really wants to hang out with you and your friends, he will begin to read the ingredients list better.... 

 

Life without drama is like winning the lottery unfortunately. Drama always seems to be a first resort also.

The whole scenario was insane, 

Brings damn chips, title has milk in it, first ingredient is milk.

gives long winded speech how he researched veganism for 2 hours.

I laugh that he did all that research and bought those chips...the only ones obviously not vegan, I thought it was a joke. 

He runs out,

sends me messages about how vegans should educate people and not belittle them. “ How am I supposed to know!?”. Blocks me on facebook.

 

 

keeping in mind no one in my house was expecting , cared, or phased by chips or no chips. 

 

This is more of a “ listen to red flags” story. I keep having those this year,

That's silly, why didn't he just call/text you to find out what would be appropriate to bring if he was confused?! It sounds like he has other issues. Poor guy. 😉
