The SO called the restaurant we ate at last night. The soup that he ordered after asking about his allergen and getting the all clear? Yep, it was loaded with it.

The owner of the restaurant was irritated that the SO thought he should keep track of the ingredients in everything he makes. The SO tried to explain the severity of allergies and that he’s not going to sue the restaurant but that because it is on a college campus the owner might have trouble with the lawyer parents of a sick or dead college kid. The owner was unimpressed.

I never understood the panic people have over things like peanuts or other allergens until I had to worry about it.
