When you're a vegan, you have to make sure that everything you put in your mouth is meat and dairy free. If you're in control, then it's no bother because you can check all the ingredients and then make an informed decision.
However, if you leave the decision making up to someone else, then you could find yourself in a bit of a pickle, especially if alcohol is involved and friends who don't really take you seriously.
That's what one vegan woman has experienced after she was unwittingly fed chicken nuggets by her mates on a night out.
In a post on Reddit, the 24-year-old explains that she even called the cops on her dirtbag friends because of how betrayed she felt.
"Four nights ago, I was at a party and I will admit, I got white girl wasted," the vegan wrote. "My friends thought it would be funny to feed me chicken nuggets as a prank.
"I checked with them before chowing down 'are these vegan?' To which my friends replied 'yeah, they're Sunfed' (a type of vegan chickenless chicken).
"They tasted off to me but I figured it was just because I was drunk. I was wrong.
"I found out the next day when my sister sent me a message telling me to check my friends Snapchat story. The story was them showing the nugget packaging, and then showing them giving it to me (including the conversation where I asked if it was vegan).
"I took a screen recording of the video and took it to the police, on the grounds of food tampering, and now three of my (ex) friends are facing charges.
"They all think that I'm overreacting to a 'harmless' prank. In my view, they took advantage of my drunken state, tampered with my food, and publicly humiliated me. In their view, it was just a prank."
She explained that she's been a proper vegan for about 10 years and hasn't eaten meat since she was about three or four years old.
The vegan has posted it on the Am I The Asshole subReddit, asking people whether they think it's too far to take the matter to the police.
Loads of people were supportive of her getting the cops involved and told her that real friends wouldn't do that to someone they respected and cared for.
So if you're thinking of pulling this as a prank, just be aware that the consequences can be severe.
