Vegetarian confession time! I am a vegetarian, and I hate other vegetarians. OK, so hate's a strong word. But if you're the type of vegetarian who walks around pissing off all the meat-eaters in the world, I have got a few words for you. Namely: you are driving me nuts!
Maybe it's because I live in a household with two omnivores (both my husband and my kid love themselves some bacon), but I've never been into preaching about my lifestyle. I just want to be able to enjoy my eats in peace, and I expect most meat-eaters are the same. So I'd like to put out a little warning to all the mouthy vegetarians who are giving the rest of us such a bad name.
I've got a list of the things meat-eaters are sick of hearing out of your veggie-eating mouth.
It's all the judgy stuff that puts you on the "do not invite" list for parties. It's all the stuff that people fear they're going to hear out of my mouth after they find out I haven't eaten a cow in 15 years.
And it has GOT to stop! If we want the meat-eaters to treat us with a little respect, it has to go both ways.
Here's my list of things vegetarians need to stop saying. What would you add?
Meat-eaters: may I also remind you of the 9 Things Not to Say to a Vegetarian?

When did our bowel movements become dinner conversation again? No one wants to hear about how your veggies affect your colon. How about just going with "wow, asparagus is really yummy!"
