Oh, boy, here we go again…
Another battle involving a vegan…and this time it’s from the “Am I the A**hole?” page on Reddit.
Take a look at what went down and stick around to see how people reacted.
AITA for getting annoyed with my friend’s vegan boyfriend?
“On Sunday, my friend and her boyfriend came over for a roast dinner.
(Roast Dinner for those outside the UK is beef, Yorkshire Puddings, roast potatoes, veg and gravy.)
My friend’s boyfriend is a vegan, and I thought this would be a fun challenge.
Making a roast is a lot of work, but I didn’t want meat eaters to miss out for one vegan, so I made two completely different dinners.
I researched the best possible way to make a vegan version that’s still yummy for him. I spent a fortune on the vegan alternatives, didn’t mind as I invited them over and was game for a new cooking challenge.
Anyway, I served the dinners feeling pretty proud of myself, and the boyfriend didn’t even mention the meal, just said thanks at the end. I was a little bit miffed he overlooked the work I put into his dinner but whatever.
Anyway, made a non-vegan and vegan dessert, a large crème brûlée and for him, a chocolate pudding thing that was vegan.
I also had chocolates out etc., which were not vegan and offered coffees.
The boyfriend asked for a coffee with regular milk as he fancied “a treat”… I must have pulled a face, no way that I didn’t and said, “ok.”
I’m pi**ed off at this point, considering the effort I went for respecting his diet requirements.
I return with coffees, and he is scoffing my part of the crème brûlée, leaving me with his vegan dessert.
I said, “that wasn’t vegan”, and he went “, eh, doesn’t matter.”
I kind of lost my s**t and pointed out how rude it was of him to ask for his dinner to be 100% vegan, as far as not cooking potatoes in certain things and how I went above and beyond trying to make his meal pleasant for him to throw it in my face.
He laughed and said, “chill, not that big of a deal.”
Anyway, he thinks I’m a huge AH, and his GF/my friend is conflicted and in an awkward position.
If I’ve been the AH, I would apologise to clear the air for my friend, but I feel that he should.”
Now let’s see how Reddit users reacted to this story.
One reader said that this person seems like they’re only vegan when it’s convenient for them.
And another Reddit user said the person who wrote the post should feel slighted by this bad behavior.
This individual said that this guy is a total loser. Ouch…
And this person that this was rude behavior. Absolutely!
