Loads of Veggies and Massive Salad
367

HangingDitch · 08/12/2021 22:29

I find people saying they had “loads of veggies” or “massive salad” with their meal irrationally irritating. Not the fact they had vegetables or a salad, just the phrases.

I am being unreasonable, aren’t I?

Being diabetic it’s just standard for me.

@OhGiveUp

Any adult who refers to vegetables as veggies deserves to be pelted with frozen sprouts until they see the error of their ways.
YANBU op.

Why do people come on a thread and announce that it’s trivial, first-world problems etc?

Do they travel round MN, invading chicken keepers/legal matters/creative writing/what we are reading et. etc etc and tell everyone off and to “get a grip”?

@winnieanddaisy

On holiday in Greece my cousin ordered a tomato salad . A plate of sliced tomatoes duly arrived Grin. Her face was a picture Smile

To be fair that is a Tomato salad in a lot of Mediterranean countries.I think the idea is that the Toms (sorry) are so delicious they only need a bit of oil and garlic.
I actually prefer it as I hate tomatoes touching the lettuce

@piesinmyeyes

whats a Nom Nom?

Some people write about food then add a pointless sentence (which makes them look about 4 years old)

Steak pie and mash tonight. Nom nom

Or the even worse

Cheese on toast with mustard. Yum

I got angry even typing those Grin

*Pork pie is a salad ingredient now?

Who knew?
A friend my Mum had. She swore it was healthy if she had salad with it.

I had a massive salad tonight and I'm completely stuffed! Kale, carrots, broccoli, baby leaf salad, quinoa, pomegranate seeds, falafels and harissa mixed in with aioli drizzled on top. It was beautiful.

I'm guilty of using num nums - but only to my cat. As in "oh you want num nums don't you" or "good girl you ate all your nummies"

Never to humans tho!

@Imy06

I can't believe how many people are upset about the word veggies, that's made me giggle 😂 I'm in Australia and you'd probably get a funny look for saying it properly ha ha.
Personally I would rather someone said loads of veggies rather than list every vegetable they had, and massive salad just sounds unappealing to me 🤷🏻‍♀️

Aussies are fond of abbreviated words.

Foodie ones -
Brekkie Breakfast
Avo. Avocado. Not to be confused with Arvo Afternoon
Maccas McDonalds
Barbie Barbecue

Also
Chrissie Christmas
Ambo Ambulance
Tradie. Tradesman
Miso. Musician
Prezzies. Presents
And lots more

Nasty people, probably Poms (English people), say they open their mouths as little as possible in case the flies get in. 😀
