Woman: I’d like the grilled salmon.
Me: I’m sorry, unfortunately we’re out of salmon for tonight but we…
At this point I’m cut off as the woman looks up from her menu and says…
“What do you expect vegetarians to eat then?”
The look in her eye told me she wasn’t joking when she asked the question.
I almost just gave the woman a ‘wat?’ but caught myself and directed her to the middle top portion of our menu where the fish and shellfish selections are located, thinking that maybe she thinks pescatarian and vegetarian are synonymous.
“I don’t eat fish or shellfish”
I’m just dumbfounded at this point and can only manage to say “Oh” at which point she throws her hands up in a fit and exasperates “I’ll just take the spinach dip”.
