Meet Vegans and Vegetarians From Around The World
Hello everyone I have been a vegan since October 2012 well I was vegetarian for about 3 weeks then decided to go all the way. I have been working at Chipotle mexican grill for almost 3 years I have days where I love my job others I hate it because of all the meat I am surrounded by and have to touch and smell on a daily basis. If you were me how would you feel and what would you do? When I have enough clients I am going to become a dog groomer because I love animals. I already went to school for it just need all the proper supplies and more dogs to work with.
I feel like I am being judged for being a vegan but working at a place that has meat is like a contradiction? I dont want to feel like this and some of the people I work with are so rude like if I bring cookies in some people wont eat them because they are healthy vegan crap. I honestly love all the new foods I have made since becoming vegan I would have never known about how good certain things taste like all the different tofus, persimmons, dates and so many other foods I have yet to try.
It would be very difficult for me to work in a place where meat is served to customers. I guess I would look for something else if I were you.
I work for a freight forwarding company and at the moment I am thinking about changing my job because of some of the customers like GSK and Astra Zenica who our company do business with. I completaly do not agree with their animal testing involvement. This is the reason why I think it's time for me to look for another job even I'm not directly working for those companies, I'm only supporting logistic computer application used by our company.
I know how you feel, I was a vegetarian for five years and just recently became vegan ( and I work at Wendys). My coworkers judge me alot.
I'm actively looking for another job, however, being around all that meat and cheese made my dedication to veganism THAT much stronger :)
