No Sugar-Coating Her Attitude

| Friendly | February 19, 2015

(We are having a church potluck and I love to make peanut butter fudge. One of the local moms walk up to me with a child in tow.)

Other Mom: “Is this sugar-free?”

Me: “No. It has powdered sugar as well as a few other sugar filled things.”

(The other mom switches from calm to angry.)

Other Mom: “WHAT?! MY SON CAN’T EAT IT THEN. HOW DARE YOU BRING SUGAR-FILLED THINGS AND SHOW THEM OFF IN FRONT OF HIM?! I BET YOU NEVER EXPERIENCED AN ALLERGY IN YOUR LIFE!”

(I’m incredibly taken back.)

Me: “Excuse me? I have Celiac disease. If I eat anything that is not gluten-free, I get really sick. I probably shouldn’t come to potlucks because of it. So you, someone I barely know, accuse me of being rude to a little kid for almost the same reason?”

(The woman turned pale and walked off, towing her son behind her.)
