A semi-daily occurrence...
- Today in the breakroom...
- Coworker A: Matthew, do you want a brownie?
- Me: No thanks! I can't.
- Coworker A: You can't?
- Me: Nope. I'm vegan. No meat, no eggs, no dairy.
- Coworker B: OH. Vegan. *giant, overblown scoff* I love meat too much.
- When someone asks why I won't eat something, I tell them why very plainly and simply. For some reason, this seems to be everyone else's cue to defend their own decisions which I never challenged in the first place.
