Where did this come from? Why are you accusing me of stealing?

Also, histrionics? This dude hooked up with me the night before, showed up barefoot at my work the next morning expecting me to make him a free latte--which made my boss pissed at me--then treated me like this at the party that night. Through it all, I treated him with empathy, patience, and kindness. But the way he treated me cut me deeply.

I've been vegan almost 20 years now. This happened in 2007. I already knew about sugar. The only thing he taught me was how not to advocate for veganism.
