I’d of thought that with vegetarianism and veganism being much more prevalent and accepted these days it wouldn’t be difficult for people to grasp the concept or get orders correct.
It seems that it is increasingly common for wait staff and/or kitchen staff to continually screw up my order. I mean, really how hard is “no meat”. I didn’t say “no guac, no onions, no meat, no cheese”. Just one thing was taken out. I want everything else. That pasta I ordered? I want the pasta with everything but the meat. Instead I got a kid sized order of pasta without meat. I didn’t say re-size my pasta. I *don’t* get it. I ordered cheese enchiladas one day and got beef enchiladas. WTH? Of course I sent it back. Then there are some things that I don’t think of, particularly when asking for cooked greens or beans, forgetting that meat like bacon or ham is often used for flavor. Sometimes I take a few bites and try to ignore my gaff.
I am looking forward to having my own place and kitchen once again to actually cook some good vegetarian meals. This whole veggie thing was meant to be temporary through the work project here in Beaumont, but the more I do it the more I just feel like keeping on. Oh, I still look at meat and when I smell it—I do drool. But it is pretty easy to turn it down.
We’ll see. I’ve got a few more weeks here and we’ll see where it goes from there.
