Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

They were the days, we rarely had a dog last for more than a couple years - most got hit on the road.

Seriously, can you imagine how difficult it would be to be in a relationship with a Vegan?

Do they not realise what a PitA they are ? - I went to a wedding last summer, 120 guests and a Bloody Vegan - Jesus H Christ, the whole wedding ended revolving around the Vegan.
The wedding soon became ‘all about them’ and was a proper distraction from the actual event.

I came away thinking what an absolute shit person she was - if she wants be be a Vegan, then great - get on with it.
Sneak in a couple acorns wrapped in a dock leaf for dinner, and quietly chomp away on that - but, no - got to make a big fuss about whether the knife used to cut her bean jelly had previously been used on an a piece of ham.

I really think veganism has been hijacked by a bunch of ‘look at me, I am boring but special’ type personalities.

I’m inclined to agree. Diets are not particularly easy to stick with in social situations. With Vegan it seems to rear its head when there’s no food involved. Then it’s socially awkward, then it makes you feel like the bad person, but you want to kinda fit in... but don’t... so it just rubs people up the wrong way.

My Mum started being a vegetarian back in the days before it was a fashion accessory.

Christmas, 1979 over the dinner table she declined a slice of Goose that she had spent the morning cooking, and when questioned about it explained that she didn’t feel comfortable eating an animal that had a name - The Goose was called ‘Wheeler’*

Anyway, she was a vegetarian from that day on, and managed very well without ‘inflicting’ it on anyone at all - most people wouldn’t have known it, and she didn’t find it necessary to preach about it, convert anyone - and certainly not demand special treatment.


*Goose was called Wheeler after my first job - having been made redundant from a building company called ‘Wheelers’, getting no severance pay and loosing a months wages - I took the only thing in our builders yard that no one else laid claim to, and the official receiver didn’t place a value on - I stuffed a pair of Geese in a sack and took them home with me.

Some people are too polite and pander to others whims. A quick, 'It's not your day. but X and Y's day, so why don't you quietly nip into the kitchen and ask them'. I can shorten it to two words if they don't take the hint.

I thought twice, and decided against a reference to ‘not wanting a relationship with a woman that refused to have any meat in her mouth’


And you are right - about folk being too polite.
In fact, I think almost everyone realised that ‘the Vegan’ was like a loaded cannon waiting to go off, and figured they would accommodate her whims for the sake of the couple - you could practically taste the hatred
