Pickle hating

Are you somehow under the impression that food restrictions are unusual? No, dearie; lots of people have them, including me. If you're unable to master the oh-so-simple method of saying "This isn't what I ordered" when served the food you ZOMG!HATE!!11!!, perhaps you should consider cooking your own food at home, where you will never, ever, ever, ever encounter the Horror That Is Pickles.

Sheesh. I know gluten-free vegan diabetics who manage to eat in restaurants without being traumatized by their 'experience'; get over yourself.

*shrugs* Haters always hate it when told their hate is illogical.

Sure they hate it. Because it's not illogical. What's illogical is expecting that the supposedly oh-so-simple act of sending the food back will get a similarly simple and satisfactory response. Sometimes it will, yes. But however it works on your planet, here on the planet Earth it's usually not so easy. I gave you a specific example from someone's experience, you tried to pretend that compensation for the disaster equaled a successful conclusion to the meal, and when I pointed out the difference you got huffy. That's what sounds illogical to me.

And yes, I know people who are reluctant to dine out for precisely that reason: that no matter how carefully they choose the restaurant, or how carefully they specify their order, or send things back, something they're seriously allergic to or otherwise loathe will more likely than not find its way onto their plate. That's how it works, here on the planet Earth. Your original proposition that it's easy to avoid such foods is painfully naive and ignorant.

But what I think is really going on is that at heart you don't believe anyone really hates pickles.
