Diet Coke, Please?

So, Jackie and I went to the mall the other day and stopped to get some pizza. We each got a slice of cheese pizza and I ordered a Diet Coke and Jackie got a 7-Up. I saw the guy start to fill the glass with regular coke and then he asks again, “was that a diet or a regular?” I saw him, and i said, “diet, please” We sat down, and ate our pizza.

After bolusing 2 units and thinking about how i should bolus for the all the cheese/protein and fat, i took a sip of my soda and immediately tasted Regular Coke.

I asked Jackie to see if she thought it was a diet. She tasted regular.

So when we finished our pizza, I went back up to the counterand and I said to them, “I ordered a diet coke and this is a regular coke. I’m a diabetic, and I can’t chance the drink being a regular coke.” The lady understood and i got a weird look from the guy, but they gave me a new cup full of good ole diet coke.
