I know many of you have experienced this, but it TOTALLY drives me BONKERS. When I go out and order a DIET soda and they give me regular, particularly fountain drinks.
For instance, I went out this past weekend for a couple cocktails for my best friends birthday. I specifically asked for a mixed drink with DIET SODA. I am a bartender, so I know the "wonder bar" (soda dispenser at bar) by heart. There are specific buttons on the bar and I know what is what. So I watched her make the cocktail and I saw her push the regular cola button. I asked her if it was diet, and she responded, "Uh....(hesitation)....yeah..?". I said that I was type I diabetic and this was important to be sure that it was diet. Then the lady says, "I'm pretty sure it is, just take a few sips and if you think it is regular, I will make you a new one". HUH?!??!!? Seriously? I told her then that I was a bartender and I knew the buttons by heart, that I totally SAW HER push the cola button, and made her make he a new drink. Some people...I know that most people are not educated on T1, but seriously?
Ok, I am done venting now!! Thanks for listening!!
