Meat-Loving Dad Tells Aspiring Vegan Daughter To Leave House Following Quorn Discovery
| Last updated
A meat-loving dad told his daughter to pack her things and leave his house after he discovered her Quorn in the freezer.
But her dad Paul is a self-professed 'big beef fan', and when he saw the meat substitute in his freezer he told Hollie to sling her hook.
In the messages to his daughter, the 58-year-old retired mechanical engineer told her to 'pack her things and leave', adding that buying Quorn was 'beyond forgiveness'.
Paul, from York, said: "I'm a meat lover and a big beef fan - I like my steaks and my joints.
"Somebody gave me Quorn years ago and I thought it was the vilest thing I've ever tasted and haven't touched it since - it might have improved by now but I'm still not going to eat it.
"She knows I hate anything like that or substitute stuff because everything I buy is fresh - I don't buy anything frozen and like everything natural.
"We're a very close family and I just make light of everything as I like to see them smile - we're like this all the time anyways it doesn't matter what it is.
"I just thought it would be funny if I sent her that and it seems to have gone crazy and I've carried it on for a bit - it's all light-hearted and we have a good laugh out of things."
Bar manager Hollie was initially given a real fright by her prankster dad, but was relieved to realise he was just up to his usual banterous tricks.
The 34-year-old said: "The Wi-Fi was bad and the first picture didn't load so all I saw was 'pack your things and leave immediately' and I was like 'what?' and then it loaded and I was just in hysterics.
"As soon as he sent it to me I screenshotted it and posted it because I thought it was hilarious - I was just sat at work howling.
"My dad is just a joker and takes the mick out of me for everything - we're always winding each other up and stuff.
"I've been dieting since November and lost over two stone and have been finding ways to get more protein that isn't meat, as I'm trying to get into being vegan.
"My dad doesn't understand all that, he's old school and just takes the mick."
