Their Vegan Knowledge Is A Bit Sloppy

, , , | Right | September 25, 2020

I work at a campus dining hall, where we have clear signs labeling everything we serve, including the dish name, allergens, and whether it is vegetarian or vegan. Problem is, no one reads the signs, ever. One notable example happens when I am serving two different entrees: Sloppy Joes and Spicy Beef Taco Meat — that’s what the signs read, no kidding. A customer shows up, and this exchange occurs.

Me: “Hello, what would you like?”

The customer has a look at the food I’m serving and gestures to the Sloppy Joes and Spicy Beef Taco Meat.

Customer: “Is either of these two things vegan?”

I am shocked for a few seconds.

Me: “I’m sorry, but neither of these foods is vegan. Would you like anything else?”

The customer said no and then walked off.

I do get why the customer might be a bit confused about Sloppy Joes if he hadn’t heard about them before, but “Spicy Beef Taco Meat”? It can’t get more obvious than that that the dish is most definitely NOT vegan.
