Packing frozen meat

So, on the NJ transit train ride home I was overhearing a conversation of a young lady who was standing in the aisle next to me because seats were limited. And this is how the conversation went:

"Yeah, so I'm on my way home. My day was soooo long! So, when do you work? Oh great, we close together on Monday! So, taking this temp job in the frozen meat packing company was a bad idea. I am going to become a vegetarian, no wait, I am already a vegetarian. It was so disgusting when I had to package this frozen "meat". I am never eating meat again. You shouldn't eat meat either. If you did this you would be so disgusted by it! It's just disgusting, I am so glad I am becoming a vegetarian. I'm only going to eat fruits and vegetables and I will force myself to eat Tofu before I ever meat again. And by the way, I don't think I could come to work tomorrow at this meat packing place because of my newly established Vegetarian state. Yeah, that's what I'm going to tell them when I call out, I can't work for you today because I am a vegetarian and am truly offended by working there."

I assume the friend she was talking to had to go as she hung up her cell phone and stood quietly the rest of the ride.

The joys of commuting.
