Re: [IP] Fast food

I carry urine glucose/ketone strips and check the pop.
Once shortly after Ben was dxed we went to a restaurant and he got regular
instead of Diet soda.  I went  back and complained and the guy I talked to,
who turned out to be the owner/manager looked at me after I said my son had
diabetes and said "So what difference does that make"
Needless to say we have never gone back.
The other thing that bothers me is people who give us regular soda because
"Children should not have diet drinks"  I feel like saying bite me.

Ignorance is voluntary misfortune
Like one who seizes a dog by the ears is the passer-by who meddles in the
quarrel not his own.
