Exactly. Our recruitment applications have a place for PNMs to list allergies, physical accommodations, and other needs so the chapters can provide for them as necessary and no awkward conversations need to happen. Strangely enough, we had a few girls come through this year that consumed food or drink that they were supposedly allergic to... they were always offered a non-allergic option but maybe some of them were just picky!

I've heard people say when they go away to camp, etc that they choose the vegetarian option, just because it's fresher and not prepared in such humungous quantities. Perhaps it was something along those lines.

I know after eating chicken 3x in a row at convention one year I was wishing I had worn a "Meat Is Murder" t shirt or something.

I've seriously been reading every post in this thread for the past several days. As a new member, it's funny to hear about the crazy things I might have to look forward to in the years to come!

Anyway, bumping because this thread got me thinking about awkward stories from going through recruitment a few months ago as a PNM:

The day before Pref (skit day) I was at XYZ house and was having a great time. It was my favorite house and I really wanted to make a good impression. The house was really well-decorated with their theme, so I commented on the really cool fabric wall hangings right near where my rusher and I were standing. She thanked me and talked about how hard they had been to hang/how late they had all stayed up decorating and how it had kind of been a bonding experience. Nice, right? Until about a second later when another girl comes up to bump, and my rusher says, "Oh hi _____, this is Katy. We were just talking about hanging things on walls" and then walks away.

It was definitely an awkward transition, and the new rusher looked at me like I was totally weird. Instead of saying "Huh, what a weird topic" and moving on, though, she tried to continue the conversation about hanging things on walls. Direct quote, and I kid you not: "So, uh...you really like hanging things on walls? What's the best way to do that?" It was so weird. I even tried to change the subject, but it didn't work.

I was cut from XYZ after that round but ended up very happy somewhere else. Still, though, I look back and shake my head since that weirdness could very well have been why they cut me. I mean, who wants to be a sister to "Hanging Things On Walls" Girl? Haha. :)

LOL. I may have to tell your story at some of my chapter's recruitment workshops if you don't mind :)

That has to be one of the most awkward bumps I've ever heard of. The first sister was probably just nervous - it may have been her first time on the other side. She should have done the introduction the other way around - "Oh hi ____ - Katy, this is my sister ____. We were just talking about how hard we worked on the decorations last night..." - and then eased herself out of the conversation.

Definitely share this story with your new sisters - it may save your chapter from some awkward bumps. And congrats!

Why are you defending a banned troll?
