…include but are not limited to the following: Ordering an iced coffee with NO sweetener, putting in a Splenda and some creamer, getting back in the car on a hot-as-H – E – Double Hockey Sticks day (on which you also got up at 5:30am to go running and it’s now 2pm and you need that coffee more than air), getting on the freeway, taking a sip and realizing….they put the sweetener in. Which will have you going from 99mg/dL to sweating ketones in about two minutes.
But you know what makes it all ok? Driving to your next appointment location, taking said incorrect coffee in to a different Starbucks and after telling them what happened and that you have diabetes and your reeeeeeally can’t have any sweetener in there and having them replace it, on the spot, no questions asked.
Proof you should always double check your drink order whether it’s coffee or a cocktail. And proof that sometimes even the big, corporate, super-chain stores still do right by their customers.
Have a great weekend party people!
