Jerk Intolerance

Story Sent in by Linda:

When I was out on my fist date at a coffee shop with John, we sat down and he asked me what I wanted. I told him my order and asked him to request soy milk instead of dairy milk, as I'm severely lactose intolerant.

He returned a few moments later with our drinks and we sipped as we talked.

About 45 minutes later, I had sharp cramps. It must have been noticeable because John asked what was wrong.

I asked, "Are you sure there was no dairy milk in my coffee?"

He laughed and said, "Oh! Yeah, there's cow milk in there."

It was so bad that I wasn't even sure if I'd make it to the bathroom in time. I was able to stumble there and I spent a good amount of time on the toilet.

While I was in there, someone slipped a folded note under the door. When I was finally done I picked it up.

It said, "Just wanted to see if you really were lactose intolerant. Guess you are. Have a nice life."

After I left the place, I wrote him an email in which I said, "I went out with you just to see if you really were an asshoIe. Guess you are. Have a nice life."


  1. First of all, i cant believe you cant taste the difference between soy and cow milk. Soy has a very distinctive taste. I was vegan for four years and i would have known Immediately if my drink was soy. However, maybe my palate is more sensitive than yours. Secondly, i would call the police and tell them he tried to poison you. And i would also notify whatever dating site you found him om that he tried to poison you. I mean, you could have been deathly allergic. Dont let this shit get away with it.

  2. Depending on what flavor coffee drink she had it's entirely possible for there to be very little taste difference, but you may indeed have a "super palate." (Not being mean it's a common thing, most chefs have it)
    I agree with letting whomever found you this douche canoe know though...he could kill someone with this kind of crap.

    1. Haha, I didn't take it as you being mean. :)
      I am not a chef, but I do run a food blog, so I am a foodie, so I think "super palate" might be my thing? Also, if the OP smokes or hasn't got a great sense of smell, she could definitely have palate issues. My stepmom smokes and has a bad sense of smell, and she over seasons everything.

  3. From what I understand, there are people who genuinely believe that people who have allergies are either fussy eaters or making it up. There was a story I heard of a woman who went into anaphylactic shock because of a co-worker who deliberately snuck peanuts into something she made and gave it to her, apparently testing to see if she was faking it. The co worker got arrested for attempted murder.

  4. This fellow is dangerous indeed and the OP dodged a bullet in more ways than one

  5. "Hahaha, oh yeah there's cynide in there. I wanted to see if it would really kill you. Guess it did. Have a nice life."
