Mom Finds Out Her Vegetarian Son Ate Meat Pie At A Birthday Party, Loses It.

Source: Reddit

I (39f) have a son (10m) who wanted to have some friends over for his birthday. He invited 6 of his friends for a sleepover. I made sure to let all parents know about time date etc and also asked about food allergies. One mum responded saying her son Alex was vegetarian, I said no problem I would have vegetarian options for him.

Fast forward to party day, kids are having a ball and I take out the food. I come back with more and notice Alex eating a meat pie. I didn’t want to embarrass the boy in front of his friends by taking it off him so I just let him eat. He didn’t seem to mind or notice that it was meat. Anyway he must’ve told his mum what he had eaten as she called me up the following day and got angry that I served meat options at the party. I said my son loves pies so I wasn’t going to omit them from the menu just because her son was attending. And I presumed her son knew what he could and couldn’t eat. A few more choice words and she hung up. I spoke to my son about Alex’s vegetarianism to see how strict his diet is but my son didn’t even realise Alex was vegetarian so I’m wondering if Alex knows he is vegetarian? Anyway my sister reckons I’m a slight AH because Alex was in my care and I should have stopped him eating the pie, but idk, it wasn’t like I forced it on him, I had plenty of vegetarian options for him to choose from!

Edit: yes I announced what each food was when I put it on the table. And I said ‘meat pies’. I had 4 other dishes which were all vegetarian! I honestly thought this would have been sufficient. The boys have been on school camps and all so I assumed Alex was equipped with the necessary knowledge about his diet.
