WOW!!! That is incredibly rude, they had no right to ask you such questions, I would have done exactly what you did and told a manager, that was way out of line. It's one thing for the guy to be bad mouthing you (which is uncalled for as it is, he shouldn't have even argued about
it) but for some lady to ask you those kinds of questions is just ridiculous. I'm sorry you had to deal with that!!
People can be really inconsiderate and rude, and sometimes it's really frustrating. Usually I either bite my tongue or say "I have stomach problems" or I just tell them it's none of their business. Most people when asking me quesions (like friends and family) just have a genuine concern/curiosity but you will get the occaisional jerk here and there who just doesn't get it. Best thing to do is ignore them.
Oh and you can actually get custom Medicalert
bracelets at http://www.medicalert
.org/ and you can have them put whatever you want on it.
