So Irritating

I love my mother, I appreciate my mother, but it's getting so annoying coming over to her house on Sundays. It's like every Sunday she cooks something with meat in it, and gets pissed because I won't eat it. She's always like, "Well I'm not making another dinner." And I have to remind her I didn't expect her to, and I'm perfectly fine making my own meals.

Last Sunday she made a meat chili, and I made myself a vegetarian chili. Then she got all pissed off and said, " Why can't you just eat meat?"

I felt like saying, "Why don't you just eat dog food?" I don't want to eat meat. I don't want any more of that crap in my body. I had 20 years of that slop in my stomach and it made me sick, sluggish, and difficult to manage my weight. Every Sunday I tolerate my brother, father and mother being suck jerks about me being a vegetarian. I'm going to stop coming over if they won't quit it with the immature comments.

How long have you been veggie? You implied you'd been a meat eater for 20 years. If it is a relatively recent decision, it may be hard for your mum to come to terms with it. If you'd been vegetarian since being a schoolgirl, it might not have been so difficult for them. I'm not saying this IS the reason...just possible. Hope it improves.

I plan on having a very large green house in the future and im not a vegetarian but when i talk about it you should see vegetarians light up lol

I am also a non veg turned vegetarian. I face this issue sometimes and yes it can be very irritating. May be they don't understand it is better to be so..

affection has many colours.........<br />
love don't alwayes come in the right package

It's too bad they don't respect your wishes. As much as I always endorse family cohesiveness, I would suggest arriving after dinner is completed. You can still visit and avoid the dinner conflict.

That is actually an excellent solution.
