Aha! Now see, I'm proving my own point about why DiDkA is saying such important things.
I went out for a drink after finishing work today with a couple of colleagues. I sat down minding the table, whilst they went to get in a round. Not drinking, I asked for a diet cola.
When they came back with it, I took one sip and alarm bells started ringing.
This isn't diet.
So being the responsible DiDkA advocate, I went back to the bar, and told the girl behind the bar that I was concerned that this was regular.
No, it's diet.
I was completely stunned at this woman's attitude.
'Look,' I tell her, 'I'm a diabetic, and I'm quite cautious about this. I don't think this is diet. Could I possibly get a replacement?'
'No, I poured it, it's diet.' She pours a small amount off the pump, and gives it me to sip.
'Is this diet?'
'It's definitely diet'
'Well, I'm afraid that tastes completely different to me. Could I please get a replacement?'
Lather, rinse, repeat for a while, before she FINALLY gives me a new glass.
I've had a similar thing happen in the past, but it was the unbelievably aggressive attitude that the woman showed me - like I was totally inconveniencing her, or that I was stupid. I wasn't having that. I was polite enough to her, I hadn't bought the drink myself, so there was no way she remembered me buying the drink.
It does happen, and if I hadn't been so stubborn, today it could have happened to me.
Let's get fighting, ladies and gents.
