I was asked to use my insulin pen in the bathroom of a restaurant today. I eat at this restaurant for lunch one per week for the past 3 years. usually I sit at a corner booth and I discreetly inject under the table cloth.
Somehow today was different. The waiter came and asked me to use the bathroom.
Anyone who has seen the mythbusters’ episode on fecal particles in the bathroom realize that it is possibly the most unsanitary place in a restaurant. Why should I have to inject while sitting on the toilet like a heroin addict? It is certainly more sanitary to do this outside.
This is the first time I’ve been asked to go to the bathroom… I felt angry. How do you guys handle this situation?
