I had a nice little incident this morning when I went for my vehicle emissions inspection.
While my car was getting tested I had to wait in this little room with a television playing videos about air quality issues. I still had some leaflets explaining the animal agriculture and climate connection leftover from some leafleting I did with FARM (http://www.farmusa.org ) the other weekend. I snagged them out of my car and left them in the waiting room hoping people would read them while their minds were still primed by the motor vehicle associations anti-pollution video.
Once the inspection of my car was done the technician told me that he saw my bumper stickers ( tryveg.com and one about veganism improving global climate issues ). He told me that he was a vegetarian.
I said that it must be cool since it had a connection with his job protecting air quality.
He said “Ah no, I’m a vegetarian for ethical reasons”.
We chatted a bit and I gave him one of the environmental fliers mentioned above.
When I think about all the unexpected dumb comments I get this incident was a nice little surprise that made my day.
