Don't you love it when someone in a store wants you to try their wares so you feel like you should buy it? What about when they offer you something you shouldn't eat?


Coming from the grocery store
with the Starbucks lady by the door.
She offered a drink for me to taste
and I said, “I can’t” and rushed with haste.
“I am a diabetic”, I said.
She looked at me with the greatest dread.
“It’s natural sugar,” said sweet Sue.
“I’m a natural diabetic, too!”

Funny how some folks have an aversion to "no." They just don't get it! Thanks for the laugh.

God bless you. Kathy

Oh Larry!...Oh Larry! once I was going through a Mall by the perfume's section when an eager girl use that little gun of hers trying to douse my neck (bad shot that she was) and I got it right in my eye, and went away blind from an eye and smelling like a weak bead skunk.

Hilarious! It is annoying when people push things you don't want. And who would be dumb enough to give sugar to a diabetic.
