More dumb things people say to Diabetics

Over the past two days I have had to people say ignorant things to me. 

First one, I was sitting in a restaurant with my dad and the waitress sees me testing my glucose.  "oh that is cool, I wish I could do that." me  "No you don't". 

Second one, I was on the phone with someone.  "Well at least you don't have cancer".  Well, this will piss off some people but frankly, if you could give me say, testicular cancer and the had to chop off my left nut and undergo some chemo I would take those odds versus looking after my diabetes for the rest of my life.  I know, cancer is very serious.  I am just sick of hearing people say "Well at least you don't have cancer". 

That concludes my rant for the day.
