Actually, I liked the suggestion of asking the in-laws if they wore shoes. By showing them to be hypocrites and thus demeaning their beliefs, I'm sure that they would then happily give in and eat some turkey. They might even suggest that it be served raw! In any event, a good time (and a good laugh!) would be shared by all. I just love it when the carnivores try to trip up the silly vegans. It's what real Americans do!
About the 20 year old son whose mother "let" him have his "former" room. He was moving out again and needed a bed. Why can't he take his own bed with him? Does he "own" it or is it all hers?
Or how about an inflatable bed from Target for his new place? Queen size is maybe $27 on sale, plus the electric pump. Works great.
Of course no one should be charging any "bedroom sets". Amy writes "If he wants a bed, you should go with him to your local Salvation Army or Goodwill resale center to shop for a bed or futon." But with bed bugs and odors and urine stains, most Goodwills and SAs won't accept used mattresses or futons, or metal bed frames either. These are good places for used dressers. Also garage sales and estate sales are good for dressers. Use a lot of caution with Craig's List and stay away from used mattresses.
If he lived with others after his time in the dorm room where is his bed from there? seems to me this kid needs to grow up and save some money to buy his own stuff. Where is all his money going anyway if he makes as much as dad.
Why would you challenge the shoes??? I know vegans and yes they wear shoes but they dont wear leather, they actually do pay attention and purchase with no animal byproducts. Why would you be rude, all you can do is show kindness and if they refuse, not your fault.
