When you put powdered garlic on your slice of pizza after working out with your bro spotting partner.
You know you are in ARL, when you walk in a food establishment and politely/gently inquire if they have vegan (or, if not, vegetarian) dinning options, the hostess starts to laugh and laugh till she starts crying.
The waiters laugh. The other diners laugh. The chef comes out and laughs.
The large/big owner, finally says: “Go back to where you are from. We do not your kind here.”
The diners clap.
You say: “You mean go back to Detroit?”
You are embarrassed. You feel alone.
You finally realize: This town IS Arlington. What else can one expect?
No, its not like that at all. In fact, that exact scenario you just mentioned is made up, I’m willing to bet.
@AKB. Is Detroit really a vegan mecca, where like minded nomnivores can order non-dead proteins without scorn?\
AKB, where exactly did this horrible event happen to you? Do you plan to immediately return there with your lawyer and make them pay for their arrogant and unfeeling treatment of poor little trolly you?

Quoth the Raven: This happens to me every time I visit a restaurant in This Town, Arlington.
The other Sun. morning I was in Rosslyn at a Starbucks (on my way to Georgetown/Dupont for a meeting) and the same pretty hostess saw me and started to laugh. Afterwards, she straighten up her hair, smiled at me and said excuse me, do I know you? Yes, of course, I said: I came to your restaurant a while back but you were unable to accommodate me. She looked up, bite her tongue, and said: May be we just do not want to deal with customers who have strange dietary requirements, this is a free country, mister.
And, then she walked away to her friends and pointed them to me. I could hear her say: That weirdo did not want to order from the menu, wanted a special item, where do these guys come from? The others laughed.
I could do nothing but walk away/leave the store without getting my double espresso. Once again, I felt all alone.
Do you know what it is to be lonely? Ask a vegan in This Town, Arlington? I mean, really.
The other Sun. morning I was in Rosslyn at a Starbucks
If you can’t find a vegan offering in Starbucks then you simply are not looking. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Starbucks with a hostess either.
Halj: I was just telling a pal of mine: Do people who eat meat can think straight? Are they bright? What does research tell us?
Mr. I was at Starbucks to get an espresso on my car towards Dupont. I do not know how but the hostess was there. Perhaps, they wanted to a Sun. morning coffee. Who knows and who cares. Can you not read? Can you not think critically?
May be the brain cells are dying due to too much hormone-induced beef, etc. And, people are becoming bigger and larger.
Save yourself, renounce meat.
