One of my coworkers is a vegetarian. Well, several of them.
Which is great. I was a vegetarian for ten years. Not a big deal. I didn't eat meat, I didn't make a big deal about it, and I didn't brow-beat anyone else into doing it. It was just what I was doing then.
However, one of my vegetarian coworkers is outspoken about it. If group snacks (within my small group of 20 or so friends) are brought in, and if they contain any sort of meat (such as a cheese platter that contains Italian cured meat), she will make a huge deal about how it's not appropriate to bring this sort of snack in when there are vegetarians around - even though there is plenty of non-meat food for people to eat.
Now, I thought woman is the kind of vegetarian that I generally like - when in Europe, she'll eat meat to get the full cultural experience. But the berating of others was something that never set well with me (I was a vegetarian because I thought it was gross, I didn't care what anyone else did).
Therefore, it was of great interest to me when, Friday night, while we were at another vegetarian coworker's dinner party, when the appetizers were being served, most of which were vegetarian, and chicken taquitos were pointed out to us several times so that the vegetarians would not eat them, and the meat eaters could get at them, this particular vehemently vegetarian coworker of mine slyly took one chicken taquito from the platter, and ate it rapidly. And then took four more.
Later that night, when we parted ways, I laughed and laughed.
I still haven't said anything to her, and I don't think I will, but I'll totally passive-aggressively post about her on the internet.
