That always reminds me of this wonderful bit on Qi.

All bits on QI are wonderful, but I will agree that some are more wonderful than others.

I used to work with someone like that, believe it or not. She couldn't understand that her lifestyle choices meant that she had to alter her own lifestyle to accommodate them, not that it gave her the right to alter the lives of others instead. Some people just don't get it. She also didn't stay working very long. I don't know if she was fired or if she quit because we were all stifling her veganness. I never asked and was just thankful she was gone.

I feel sorry for the majority of vegans, whom I suspect are perfectly nice people, because for a lot of people, the only vegans we ever notice are the ones like this. Sort of like the toupee fallacy: you only notice the bad toupees, so you assume all toupees look bad, even though there are many more good ones that you didn't notice because they're good.

I don't know who chewed this lady out in absolutely filthy language.  The language alone would convince me that I could not care less what these people have to say.  They certainly aren't my target demographic for poodle sales.  The lady with the poodles won't lose any customers over this FB snow flurry.  In fact, now she will have more free time since she doesn't need to invest any more time in this vicious, unreasonable group.


From the context, I believe the one wanting the free purebread poodle delivered to a different state spewed the filthy vitriol.

I used to be a chihuahua br##der and you would be amazed at the number of people that want to know if you will "donate" a puppy to some charity or another...

Calls all the time about someone that can't afford a puppy - then get one at the local SPCA for no or low cost, including shots and neutering/spaying.  My first thought is that if they can't afford the price how will they be able to afford the ownership costs? 

I understand that YOU want a pure breed but YOU can't afford that, choose something else.  I want champagne, I can afford bottled water.

I do not mean to be argumentative, but I do not understand how you got from a completely unreasonable Special Snowflake wanting a br33der to bring them a free dog to "ninnies that drive the good [ones] out of business."  A good one would simply decline the honor; It wouldn't put them out of business.

I think she meant that it's unreasonable people that cause the nice bre*ders to not want to deal with the crazy any more.

Exactly.

Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

There's a joke: how do you know if someone is a vegan? They will tell you.

Remember the SS couple who refused to tip the lesbian waitress? Turns out it was all a hoax.

I'm not entirely surprised, given that the last one was a hoax, too.  I was initially not sure about this, as I wondered why the couple's tip was written on their *customer* receipt rather than the merchant's copy.  But this article says their credit card receipt shows the cost with tip.  I'm guessing they must have written it on both copies for their own records.  I don't bother, so I hadn't thought of that at first.

I'm not surprised either.  I believe the very first story of a hand written note on a receipt and went viral, but am suspicious of stories after that first one.  When this one came out, I asked how the heck can the customers know the waitress was gay in the first place.  The story was very fishy.

Yes, that's right. SSIWAD was the one spewing the vitriol. The poor br*eeder was beside herself with worry that she'd done something very wrong refusing the SS. Everyone else in the group reassured her that no, she'd done absolutely the right thing.

I always write the tip on my copy of the receipt so I know how much I paid when I'm putting it in my budget program later. :)

I hope the rest of the group helped her polish her shiny spine and congratulated her on not yielding to the bully.  I'm sorry, but she sounds like a she's a bit timid if she thinks she did something wrong when SSIWAD swore at her for not giving her a free pure bred dog.  I don't believe in blaming the victim, but this woman did not need to be a victim.  All she had to do was say "no," then ignore SSIWAD.

BTW - I am glad to hear that no one else in the group was chiming in on the nasty language, just the SSIWAD.  And no one cares what people like that think anyway.
