Spoiled milk

June 18th, 2014 · 58 comments

“Kitchen warfare has become somewhat of a spectator sport around here,” says our submitter, of his office in Vancouver. Perhaps a Vegan Support Group is in order?

Drinking Dairyland milk supports animal cruelty! Look it up.

    In this specific case, the note writer has a point that is not really vegan-related.

    The company did catch a lot of flack when videos of workers abusing the cows were posted on-line. The company claims the workers were fired, but the company still lost their contract with a Quebec-based cheese-maker, Saputo.

      This note is a jerky way to make the point, regardless of the point’s validity.

      TRT, it’s 1% milk. That is never going to turn into cream, no matter how hard or how long you whip it.

    “Letting the milk spoil on the counter means the cows suffered in VAIN.” Wasting food really ticks me off. Also – there aren’t always a lot of options when it comes to brands of milk at the grocery store.

    Bottom line: veganism and boycotting companies that support “animal cruelty” are choices. You don’t get to decide other people’s choices, and you have no right to force yours on others.

      The letter writer didn’t force anything on anyone, though the note was kinda stupid. I mean, it’s not like s/he threw the milk out. S/he should have written something about looking up the recent Saputo dairy investigations from Mercy for Animals, since that’s what I assume it was in response to.

      No, but it looks like the notewriter left the milk out on the counter, which would most likely result in it being spoiled. Same end result.

      The second note implies that the writer of the first note took the milk out of the fridge and left it on the counter, which is a dick move.

      However; it would have to sit out on the counter for a fair while before it spoiled. More than the couple of hours that a carton of milk is likely to sit out in a busy office without being noticed. Unless it’s lumpy and lemon-flavoured, just put it the fuck back in the fridge and move on with your life.

    Reminds me of a former co-worker of mine, a very militant vegan. Mind you some of my other co-workers were vegan too, but they didn’t try to force their dietary beliefs on others.

    Anyway, the militant vegan went to HR and DEMANDED that all “carcasses” (anything containing animal products) be removed from all of our vending machines. And that there should be a separate fridge for vegans (at that time there were maybe 4 vegan employees) out of a little over 300 employees) so no cross-contamination occurred.
    HR firmly let him know that he would not be allowed to force his dietary beliefs on his fellow employees and he literally had a tantrum, screaming that we were all murderers and stamping his feet.

    Not surprisingly he got fired not long after that when he got caught in the act of, as he put it, “cleaning out the break room fridge”. He had dragged over the large garbage can in the break room to the fridge and was pulling out any food and drinks that contained animal products and was tossing them in the garbage can.

    Yeah, dude had some issues

    Note is not from a vegan, it’s specifying a particular brand of milk, not saying no one should drink any milk…

      Dairy products (with maybe the exception of ice cream) have regional monopolies. So practically they are saying that you shouldn’t drink milk.

      You can only buy one brand of milk in the US?? I live in a tiny country and we have loads to choose from. Not questioning the note writers obnoxiousness, just pointing out a vegan would’ve said ‘milk’ not ‘Dairyland milk. ‘

      No, we have loads of brands. But sometimes a store will only sell one brand and if you live in a really small town in a rural area where there’s only one market in a 50 mile radius you’re kind of fucked.

      Or sometimes we have more than one brand, but they’re really owned by the same company and simply marketed/packaged differently under different names (Lucerne and Marigold I think are an example)

    This reminds me of when I was a kid at school, reading a book in class, while I was waiting to take part in a bible olympiad (not optional). My teacher came up to ask what I was reading, and was horrified to find it was one of Stephen King’s books (I forget which one). She made a big scene of how disappointed she was in me, and got all emotional and called me out in front of the class. I didn’t have any idea who the author was, or why this book was presumably inappropriate for me to read (at all, or at that time specifically). It was just a random book I picked up.

    Also, random, completely irrelevant, but one of my favourite TV shows as a kid was of a cow and a cat that ran a dairy together, and who were attacked every so often by Bac and Teria, two creatures from out of space. It was pretty amazing.
