Subway worker shattered vegan customers world by explaining mayonnaise has eggs in it

A Subway restaurant worker is claiming that he educated a vegan customer about how mayonnaise was made after she ordered her sandwich with the condiment. But her response to the lesson is what is confusing some people.

The worker – identified as Gabriel Caulfield-Bohlken – said a customer walked into his store and ordered a Veggie Delight sandwich.

“As I went to get the bread she asked me if I could change my gloves cause (sic) she was vegan and I had been handling meat. I did that, no problem, perfectly reasonable request,” Caulfield-Bohlken said in a Facebook post that has 66K likes and more than 43K shares.

“I look at her, she's looking at me, I pick up the mayo, I'm waiting for her to be like haha jk,” he wrote, before telling the woman “You know mayonnaise has eggs in it right?”

“N-no it doesn’t, I get mayo every time, are you sure?” Caulfield-Bohlken wrote that the customer said.

“I felt so horrible, she stood there with such a distraught and defeated face, I had shattered this poor girl's world,” he wrote.

Caulfield-Bohlken said he explained to her that mayo is made with eggs and then asked if she would like it anyway -- to which she said yes.

She's obviously too young to have heard the decades - ago commercial for Hellman's and Best Foods Mayo...



https://m.

(Edit: On a personal note, I remembered the specific jingle for the Best Foods video as saying "Hellman's!"
Thought my memory was getting.. well, anyway..

"Hellmann's and Best Foods. Hellmann's and Best Foods are brand names that are used for the same line of mayonnaise and other food products. The Hellmann's brand is sold in the United States east of the Rocky Mountains, and also in Latin America, Europe, Australia, the Middle East, Canada and South Africa."

I lived east of the Rockies... whew!)

1. This quote is what disturbs me

“As I went to get the bread she asked me if I could change my gloves cause (sic) she was vegan and I had been handling meat. I did that, no problem, perfectly reasonable request,” Caulfield-Bohlken said in a Facebook post that has 66K likes and more than 43K shares.


Shouldn't he be changing those gloves anyway????

2. That glove changing has a marginal value anyway, by taking off one pair of gloves the hands are..

... then contaminated BY the old gloves, and if they don't thoroughly wash their hands before handling a NEW pair of gloves, it all gets passed on...

3. Yes, if the meat was raw. But this is all cooked or otherwise ready to eat meat.

10. Cooked meat has no more bacteria on it than other sandwich ingredients, such as lettuce, onions.

The usual reason for changing gloves is to prevent bacteria such as salmonella on raw meat from being transferred to the food ingredients that are ready to eat.

11. Nobody said anything about bacteria either

She made him change his gloves because they touched meat and therefore they were contaminated.

12. I was responding to Bodacea's comment

Which implied that gloves should always be changed after touching meat, whether or not the next customer was vegan or not.

4. Hellman sells "Vegan Dressing" and Hampton Creek sells "Just Mayo"

However, by definition "mayonnaise" contains eggs. "Mayo" is undefined.

5. My ex girlfriend nearly wept when I informed her Worcestershire sauce has anchovies.

She also ate Jello, and marshmallows until I brought that to her attention as well.

7. Jello.. from gelatin...

Gelatin or gelatine (from Latin: gelatus meaning "stiff", "frozen") is a translucent, colorless, brittle (when dry), flavorless food derived from collagen obtained from various animal body parts. It is commonly used as a gelling agent in food, pharmaceutical drugs, vitamin capsules, photography, and cosmetic manufacturing.

Cosmetics?! Smearing dead animal parts on your face! Better than smearing LIVE animal parts, admittedly...
