American Diabetes Association (ADA): "Hi Mrs.?, this is so and so from the ADA. Do you know that (insert #) people die each and every year from the complications from diabetes?"
me: "yes, I'm completely aware since my son has type 1 diabetes."
You would think that at this time, the ADA would apologize and go on with their spiel, but NO!
ADA: We're looking for donations.
me: I do support diabetes, but I directly donate to JDRF since our son has type 1.
ADA: Get's disgusted and snippy with me while asking again for a donation.
This went on for a couple of times until I finally had to tell them to take me off of their calling list. Why did it have to come to this? Aren't we all still working towards the same thing - finding a cure for diabetes?
