A Vegan Discovered That Mayo Has Eggs In It At The Worst Possible Moment

Folks like to mock vegans, probably because a lot of them are pretty preachy about their lifestyle. But I gotta give it up to anyone who is strongly committed to their moral compassing, especially when that compass points them away from delicious, delicious cheese.

It’s not that easy to eat vegan in this world, especially if you want to eat at a fast food franchise or anywhere affordable. So, this story of a woman who faced vegan-defeat at a Subway sandwich shop is both funny and tragic.

A Subway worker named Gabriel Caulfield-Bohlken wrote about their encounter with a confused vegan on Facebook, and Reddit user u/Gresh66 also shared this tale on the Jokes subreddit, though it’s more like a Greek tragedy:

So I work at Subway, yesterday I had a chick come in, she told me she wanted a Veggie Delight. As I went to get the bread she asked me if I could change my gloves cause she was vegan and I had been handling meat. I did that, no problem, perfectly reasonable request. I get her bread, toast it and put all the veggies she wants on it, I start to wrap up her sandwich when she says, “can I get some mayo?”

I look at her, she’s looking at me, I pick up the mayo, I’m waiting for her to be like haha jk.

Nothing.

Me: “You know mayonnaise has eggs in it right?”

THIS. GIRL. JUST. STOOD. THERE. SILENT.

She stood there for a second.

V: “N-no it doesn’t, I get mayo every time, are you sure?”

Me: “Yes ma’am, mayo has egg whites in it.”

I felt so horrible, she stood there with such a distraught and defeated face, I had shattered this poor girl’s world.

I had a couple people waiting so I had to get this lady out of here.

Me: “Would you like the mayo on it ma’am?”

V: “Sure, go ahead.”

She sounded so done, so defeated,

So I gave her her mayo, wrapped her sandwich up and charged her for her sandwich, she was silent the whole time. She took her sandwich and started walking out.

Me: “Thank you for coming, have a nice day!”

She just looked at me, sighed, “yea, I’ll try” and walked out.

And that’s the story of how I taught a vegan that mayonnaise is, in fact, not vegan.

Damn. I feel that. She’s trying so hard to stick to her beliefs, and she thinks she’s found this delicious vegan workaround. Yum! Mayo is so good! And it’s vegan? Wow.

Then BAM, reality check. All those days she went to bed feeling satisfied and successfully vegan, only to find out it was all a lie. That would be shattering. But, for the record, they do make a vegan mayonnaise, and it’s actually pretty good:

It just doesn’t seem like they have it at Subway.

Commenters are very into this story, but what’s funny about it is that it seems like a lot of people have no freaking clue what’s in mayonnaise:

People don’t know anything about anything, actually:

I’m actually scared for humanity:

But at least a few people appreciated the server’s honesty. Obviously, this girl had gone through a lot of Subway workers who were not so kind:

Or maybe they just had no idea what’s in mayo either? Seems to be a common problem.

Other vegans also weighed in to say they understood the woman’s reaction completely.

Hopefully she rallied and Googled “vegan mayonnaise” for those homemade sammies. We all deserve a little flavor.

This Female Airline Pilot Shares The Moment She Got Fed Up With 'Woman Driver' Jokes

This Female Airline Pilot Shares The Moment She Got Fed Up With 'Woman Driver' Jokes

There are some stereotypes that exist for a reason and are funny to point out that don’t really harm anybody: like all French people wear scarves.

So when Jerry Seinfeld had Gad Elmaleh on an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and noticed he was wearing a scarf, he went on a whole thing about it and it was great, both him and Gad had a wonderful laugh about it.

Finding what’s truly funny about a stereotype in a comedy bit, however, is one thing, especially when a lot of people perceive it to be true. But then there are stereotypes that are just not true and the only reason people refer to them or bring them up are in a cheap attempt to be funny. One such stereotype is the misconception that women are statistically worse drivers than men.

As it turns out though, that perception is categorically false. Now any subject matter could be made fun of, even this unfair stereotype, but what makes this one particularly harmful was highlighted by this airline pilot who shared her experiences of dealing with snarky remarks from passengers who all made the same joke, more or less, about the fact that she was flying the plane and not a man.

Her response to the jokes were on the money: she’s qualified to fly a really, really, expensive commercial airliner, while the people cracking jokes to her are just qualified to keep their seatbelts on until the overhead light turns off.

Charlotte admits that the jokes never really bothered her or got her to think past the lame quip until a fellow crew member got upset.

Charlotte believes that this nonchalant attitude people have towards women attempting careers in male-dominated fields is exactly what so few women become pilots or enroll in STEM programs.

She admitted that her own feelings aren’t of anger or frustration, she’s just sad that the world is still full of people who think it’s OK to say that to a woman who is clearly qualified to do her job.

Charlotte’s tweets quickly went viral, and it got other people sharing their own annoying run-ins with people who felt the need to belittle the work female pilots do.

Like this one guy’s wife who flew for the military but still gets belittled by passengers when she flies.

Other people thought that Charlotte’s response to passengers was perfect and told her not to go too hard on them.

And there were some other people who offered up some suggestions as to how Charlotte should respond next time.

As it turns out, Charlott’s captain had some choice words for some passengers.

Obviously, it’s not just in the airline industry where women face prejudice when it comes to dealing with men.

But since Charlotte was talking about flying planes, there were people pointing out that yes, it’s not uncommon for women to be incredible pilots. Like this guy’s daughter.

Hearing a female captain’s voice also has a profound effect on some passengers, saying it sets an example for every woman on the flight.

So the next time you want to make a joke about stereotypically bad drivers, make sure that you’re at least picking the right demographic to make fun of.

The Best Moment Of 'Game Of Thrones' Season 7 Is A Cat Meme Now

Look, you can keep your zombie dragons. For me, the coolest part of Game of Thrones season 7 was Lady Olenna’s deathbed speech in which she confesses to Jaime that she killed Joffrey, his son. 

The matriarch of House Tyrell, played by absolute legend Diana Rigg, was the coolest cucumber in Westeros and my favorite character in the entire series. So, of course, the internet has been paying its respects to the fallen Lady of Highgarden in the only way it knows: cat memes.

It’s a very simple meme, and yet it inspires delight in me every time I see it.

Maybe because cats always do look like they will poison your firstborn if you put stuff on their head.

But you might be wondering—does this meme work with dogs, too?

I am happy to report the answer is YES.

Trollbeads have become the fashion accessory of the moment

Trollbeads have become the fashion accessory of the moment, adorning the wrists of women everywhere, and with many celebrity fans such as Jennifer Love Hewitt and Emma Watson jumping on the Trollbead train, they have never been more popular.

Originally invented by Copenhagen family the Aagaards in 1976, the Trollbead system is based on a silver or gold chain onto which individual beads can be threaded using a mechanism which stops the troll beads falling off once the chain is removed.

But just what makes these bracelets so special?  Well, for a start “individual” is a key word here.  It seems that everything, from adventof social network pages to the bars we choose to go to on a Saturday night, to what music we listen to all puts emphasis on individuality these days, and with Trollbeads each bead can be made from an almost limitless number of different materials, including glass and metal, so you can make up your own unique design to wear with pride on your wrist.  Trollbeads are also great because there are just so many ways you can wear them –wear colours to accent your outfit or mood, or choose beads which, like a traditional charm bracelet, celebrate particular aspects of your life in each troll bead.  Or take them all off and start all over again!

Original Troll beads were made from silver, glass and stone and each trollbead has it’s own story depicting mythology, flowers, animals and every day objects, and to this day many different varieties of trollbead are available, so you can build a bracelet of your very own choosing.

And with Christmas coming, what better gift to give your mum, grandma, auntie, niece, friend (You get the general idea!) than by buying them a gorgeous Trollbead bracelet?  Whether it’s a starter bracelet with just one or two beads symbolizing the things you love best about them or a couple of new trollbeads to add to an existing bracelet, troll beads make the perfect festive gift, or for that matter a gift for birthdays, anniversaries… here are a few ideas. Retired Trollbeads are beads which have become rare as they are no longer made, so get your mitts on one of these and you could have a very precious addition to a bracelet. Troll beads really do come in all different shapes, colours and sizes too, so make sure you know whether your trollbead wearer prefers gold to silver; purple to green, and so on. If it’s a special occasion such as a birthday or celebrating a new arrival, why not use a themed Trollbead bracelet?  One or two charms amongst a few Italian glassTrollbeads is a great way to show your friend or relative that you think that they are of course, simply charming too –in their own special way.
