Being rudely approached by a meat loving vegetarian hater is always a drag, but giving them attention will just make the situation worse. However, meat lovers are not always the ones who start the arguing; I'm talking about vegetarians looking for a fight.
There are vegetarians who just don't know how to let things go. They'll either insult someone for eating meat and give them a long lecture on how meat is bad, or give pointless arguments about vegetarianism/ veganism that the other person couldn't care less about. So if you're one of these vegetarians, may I suggest the following:
1. Think everything through. If someone insults you for your lifestyle, insulting theirs only brings you down to their level. So just ignore them and walk away!
2. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all! There's nothing more annoying than someone trying to ruin your meal. Comments like, "Eww, you actually like steak?!," or, "I don't know how you can feel good about yourself while eating that burger," are all unnecessary. Plus, you look like a stuck-up know it all who (in reality) doesn't know any better.
3. Try to be understanding. So trying to be understanding of people loving meat may be hard for some vegetarians, but always remember that many of us ate meat in our past. Accept that not everyone thinks like you, and if they ever choose to be vegetarian, you can be there to help them out.
Does anyone have friends that act this way? Feel free to leave comments.
