I went out with coworkers after work Sunday night. They’re all very aware of my stance on animal rights and the liberation pledge. After we got done going on rides /hanging out in Jersey, they wanted food. But they kept stalling for a while because I said if we went to a restaurant, I would sit by myself lol. And they didn’t want that. So the stalling continued. Although one of them did offer to only get fries and sit with me had a restaurant worked out :). One place was closed so everyone (3 separate cars) decided to go to a Wendy’s drive through. I was in a completely awkward position because I was in my co managers car. He and his sister offered to get out of the car and hang out in our other coworkers car so that I wouldn’t break the pledge. And I was like no it’s okay I give up. And I asked him what he wanted to /felt comfortable doing. And he was like no ! I’m not the one who took a pledge! And I was like are you sure? And he goes yea of course. So they ended up sitting in the other car and I was by myself . It was a little awkward but funny. It felt wrong in a way. But then I was glad I was able to stick to the pledge and they were all super respectful of me. And I just ended up on the phone with my friend. So I think this was a success? Lol also * if there were vegan restaurants nearby, I think they would’ve tried it. Some of them like vegan meals.
