"No good deed goes unpunished."
Such is the case of Redditor u/throw_onceuponatime, who shared a story about a college roommate bearing gifts, and in this case, a lovely dinner. But when the roommate's secret agenda becomes a life threatening issue, all hell breaks loose. In this Am I The A**hole thread, the woman asks the internet if it was fair to destroy her former roommate's future because she almost killed her.
Here is the story:
It All Started Friendly Enough When A New Roommate Moved In
"I was 20 and in college. I was living with my two best friends. One of them was moving out so that she could move in with her boyfriend. I placed an ad looking for another roommate.
That's how I met Erin. Before she moved in she informed me that she was vegetarian but she wouldn't have a problem if other roommates weren't. She moved into our apartment a month later."
The New Roomie Wanted To Do Something 'Nice' For Her New Roommates By Cooking Breakfast
"The next day after she moved in she cooked breakfast for us. I was surprised. We didn't ask her to, and by her own words 'she wanted to do something nice.'
She had made pancakes, bacon strips, and hash browns."
The OP Is Deathly Allergic To Various Items, So She Asked What Was In The Meal
"I am deathly allergic to few things.
So, I immediately asked her what was in the food, but I didn't mention my allergies (huge mistake). She listed the ingredients and I didn't find anything I was allergic to.
She told me it was regular bacon, not fake bacon or that it had soy."
But It Turns Out She Was Lying To Prove A Point About How Soy Can 'Taste Exactly Like Meat'
"I start eating and everything tastes a little off. I try the bacon and definitely something is wrong. At this point, she does a 'Ta-da!' and smugly told us, 'I bet it tastes exactly like meat.'"
