The only reason to not be vegan is you're a selfish person who doesn't care about reducing suffering while saving the planet for future generations

Not sure what category that puts me in OP I'll let you decide

my sisters husbands parents, her in laws, host a weekly sunday brunch and expect all 4 of their sons, their spouses, and the grandkids to attend EVERY WEEK.

This isnít christmas, this isnít a special event, this is just, Sunday. EVERY Sunday.

They also expect anyone at all related who is in town to also attend, and get FURIOUSLY upset if you donít. Like, red faced, trying to restrain themselves from assault level anger.

They also serve really bad food in tiny portions and have all these unwritten rules like:

-only one teaspoon of scrambled eggs per person. there are 15 people in this room and we cooked less than one egg per person so, literally a teaspoon.
-one teaspoon of refried beans out of the can that were microwaved two hours ago (everyone in this story is white fyi)
-you get two tortillas, youíre only allowed to put fillings in one
-salsa?? yeah itís on the table but donít, you know, have any, ok fine but not A WHOLE TEASPOON? Theyíll literally gasp in shock. Might was well take a poo poo on the table.
-two very thin lozenges of a non-breakfast sausage. TWO!!
-Four (4) individual corn chips
-you can not be as tall as Old Dad, or have wider shoulders
-NO EYE CONTACT
-Old Dad and Wife get to Talk, attempts by others to converse are interrupted
-why are your shoulders so wide, stop, being a person there in your chair politely you, guy as tall as me you, who I invited
-Old Dad is the biggest man in the world

ok everyone, have your ration of food? is there food left no one is eating? Is it more food than was taken to eat? Ok good. No one gets that. Thatís not eating food.

The HOST and HOSTESS now get coffee, there are two cups worth of coffee and we get it and donít offer anyone else, because you are children. In your thirties. Children donít get coffee. My mom? Their age? No coffee. Why would we offer anyone coffee. This is our house. We are the money people (they are not money people)

If you break any of these rules then ELDERLY DAD will literally growl at you with all the feeble rage that a 70 year old who still hasnít inherited the million or two heíd hoped for yet can muster.

Offers to, go potluck style in the future or bring a starbucks coffee thing for everyone or acknowledge this weird food situation at all, any attempts to feed growing children sufficient amounts result in physical threats of violence and loss of future salsa rights

All their adult children and their wives seem resigned to their fate after a decade but iíve refused to go after a few of these visits and literally said gently caress off to their face after being yelled at.

All four of the sons have weird food issues, one eats entire sheet cakes regularly and another only eats hamburgers but never finishes them and makes a show of being disinterested in the last third of each burger. One of them rearranges the furniture to the exact way it looked when he was a kid and glares at anyone getting in his way.

also my mom is about as well off as they are at this point Iím not sure where the self importance comes from

Why would you go to this lmao grow a pair and live your life

Do a google search put Reddit in there look up poo poo like ďmy partner eats off my plateĒ or ďI ask my spouse if they want food then they eat mineĒ

Apparently the inability to share your food and inability to communicate your little baby rage is a common theme

Look at this newb who has not been out-insufferabled yet by an indigenous locovore

(they are right, incidentally; eating only things that grow/live within walking distance from your home is the only way to not actively kill the planet since like bok choy probably contributes as much to global warming in its epic transcontinental voyage as a cow does)

ďLocovoresĒ still eat meat, by definition veganism is about reducing exploitation and suffering to animals, I think Iíll keep my practise, but good on ďlocovoresĒ for trying
