@jayeless Sounds tricky. Very unreasonable of your sister-in-law, especially since one is trapped on a plane with no other choices.

@jayeless “What’s a mammal”? How ignorant are these people?

@Miraz Yeah, I thought it was unreasonable too 😔

@devilgate Well, I'll admit that that specific line came from the same sister-in-law I mentioned elsewhere in the post. But for some reason a lot of other people give me a kind of confused expression if I mention "mammal meat", too. It's a mystery to me why as well, because I'd've thought it was universal knowledge what a "mammal" is 😐

@jayeless a friend had the same approach and always referred to it as 'Two legs - yes, four legs - no'

@strandlines Haha, perhaps that kind of simplification is what's needed for the people who aren't sure how to interpret "mammal" 🤣
