Seriously, when I ask you if you have any dietary restrictions, just tell me them. This guy says that he doesn't eat meat or eggs -ok no problem! Next day, he's standing at the kitchen bar counter watching me prepare his breakfast and I'm chopping fruit and stirring pots and chatting nicely with him. Then when I go place the dish in front of him come breakfast-time he exclaims, "OH! Well I can't eat bananas! Or avocados! Or grapefruit. Sorry about that! I suppose I should have mentioned something earlier!" Of course, these things are all over the fricking place so I have to make a completely new dish. Also, he was standing right there as I was making everything! What the hell. Really. I think people like that should just get nothing for breakfast.

It's weird. Some guests think everything is theirs. Other guests think nothing is theirs.

I had a guest who was only getting coffee look at the breakfast I was plating for someone else and say to me, "we don't eat that!!!" Like it was poison. It wasn't even her breakfast!

 sorry about that - maybe he is on a new medication? 

my sister just announced her new 'can't have' list because of prescriptions and i'm at the point of 'what CAN you have?!' seriously. but she doesn't go anywhere.

I agree!  Give him nothing.  Maybe he can pick something up on the way out of town!!  Seriously.
