An Open Letter To The Servers Who Don’t Take Food Allergies Seriously

When you take a risk, you risk our life.

An Open Letter To The Servers Who Don’t Take Food Allergies Seriously

As all know, when you have food allergies of any kind rather they are mild or severe, it makes going out to eat very hard and can even be scary at times. You see others and they never have to explain why you can't have that certain food, or what happens when you do to the severe, but you have to take 10 extra minutes to order specifically a way that won't hurt you.

Let me tell you, it isn't your fault that you are built this way, and you cannot control it. Don't feel bad, you do what's best for YOU.

To the servers; I know that it might seem like we might be following the next trend or what's popular in the health world, but in reality, we are being cautious for our own life's sake. We don't have control of allergies, we don't choose to be allergic to specific foods, unfortunately, we are just created this way and we can't help it.

But let me tell you something: When you choose to take a risk or not communicate to other people involved in the food making process, it not only puts your job at risk but also puts us at risk.

Never assume we are like the rest.

We are different and we don't choose to be.

Please be respectful to all who have allergies and do all you can to ensure their safety or their health.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
