Wow that’s so insensitive of her.  Just because someone has a medical condition doesn’t mean they are going to die.  And obviously she doesn’t know much about diabetes since she didn’t understand what insulin was.

That’s rediculous!  Even if she thought that, she should not have said it!  You love him, that’s what matters.  And how does she not know what an insulin pump is?

That was really rude of her to ask. She obviously has no tact and quite honestly sounds a bit ignorant if she doesn’t even know the basics of diabetes. Some people! What did you say in reply?

That is terrible! You should have responded back with “Aren’t you afraid being rude to customers will cause you to lose your job??”

By The Way I work with middle school kids at an after school program. One of our kids has type I diabetes with an insulin pump. He was in trouble one day and was sitting at a table by himself when I saw him looking down and playing with something. I instantly though cell phone (because the kids cant use them at the program and always try) and went to yell at him for a)having a phone out and b)using it while in trouble. Luckily I realized it was just his insulin pump before I said anything Embarassed

Sounds like that cashier didn’t have very good social skills a indiscreet question like that is something you would expect from a very young child.

honestly, try not to let it bother you. not because she wasn’t wrong because she OBVIOUSLY was! But more because she was clearly ignorant. Anyone who cares to educate themselvs (or just cares to have tact) knows that shouldn’t be asked but she is obviously uneducated and lacks tact. You are so lucky to have a great guy and especially one who is so tolerant of constant questions. I have a friend who has type 1 diabetes and have learned a lot about what a normal, awesome life you can lead. It isn’t a walk in the park but it certainly isn’t debilitating if you don’t let it. I wish you both the best and congrats 🙂

A lot of people unfortunately do not think before they speak, she is one of them.  Sorry you had to go through that, what a jacka$$!
