Vegans enjoy better customer service (for now).
Out with our friend at a pizza place, the waitress walked up to our table and greeted us. She said, “Hi guys. Are you ready to order drinks? I’ll bring the vegan bruschetta right out…”
She recognized us from our last visit, weeks before. This was not a vegan restaurant so obviously we stood out in her mind (we were also seated at the same table as before, which probably helped). Still, it was pretty cool to be recognized and served well.
Usually, being vegan only makes you feel ostracized and singled out but occasionally it has its perks. It also makes you memorable, and if you are friendly, frequent the same places, and tip well, it can help you jump ahead in line.
