I saw a post with someone bragging about how they were at work and someone ordered diet coke and this person purposely gave them full sugar coke and this was supposedly hilarious

To all you out there who work in positions like this person, please please don’t do this

My boyfriend has type 1 diabetes. He drinks diet coke because the lack of sugar means that he doesn’t need to inject himself with insulin before having a drink

If he, or any other diabetic, was served coke instead of diet coke it could KILL HIM

So yeah, if someone asks for diet coke, GIVE THEM DIET.
