    That ranks as one of the most appalling Diabetes Ignorance stories I've 
ever heard...BUT the "happy ending" is that you did something proactive in 
reporting her & in so doing, hopefully taught your kids an invaluable lesson. 
Nonetheless, the story carves yet another notch in my heart for all the 
insensitive, STUPID comments that anyone living with diabetes has to endure.
