Gimme a break...why is it that every attempt society makes to maintain some level of order and common courtesy people like you play the sympathy card.....you know damn well nobody is going to be thrown off a subway for grabbing a quick candy bar or a juice if it is discrete.....but you need the rule to throw off the barbarians who abuse the system...with your logic you should be allowed to eat at church for crying out loud because of your condition.....stop using your illness to make yourself exempt from the rules that MUST govern society and then imply the rest of us are selfish. Stay home if you can’t handle the hygienic requirements of living among your fellow man. Did you even watch the video of what we are talking about ??
And you want it to be all about you.
That is the problem.
I decided since they did not want someone like me eating on the public transit that they pay for my cab ride every day?
Or you could put on your grown up pants and pay for your own cab if it is such a big deal.
I have several friends who are diabetic who aren't Me Me ME wusses like you. I have even given them rides and they didn't eat spaghetti in my car.
Massive rat problem in the subways.
I suspect there are a very, very small number of people out of the 5 million that ride the subways each day who have to eat on the subway for health reasons. I have ridden the NYC subway literally thousands of times and I’m confident that most people who eat on the subway are boorish, self-centered, and inconsiderate slobs.
I rest my case.
It is about me because I can and will die if I am not allowed to do what I ned to do when my blood sugar hits 20 which happens to me fairly often. I am an adult but I just think that your rules put my life in danger.I bet your friends aren’t type 1’s who have had the diease for nearly as long asd I have,Most people are type 2 which are much different than what I have to live through everyday.Thanks for denegrating me for my disabilty I’ve had it since I was a 9yo little girl just be happy you don’t have a child with it because if you ever do you will know how incrediably awful what you just said was.
lol. Nicely played
You must leave. Logic and good reasons are not wanted on this thread.
Juding by the population of NYC and knowing that the type of siabetes I have stikes 1 in 400 children/young adults I’d guess around 21,000+ to be exact.

And we all know that YOU wouldn't mind having your business suit ruined by sitting on spaghetti sauce, salad dressing, soup, soy sauce, ketchup, mustard or a pile of grease and cheese from someone's pizza. Why, you would say "Far be it from me to mind sitting in someone else's lunch". I also know you would never complain about getting a lap full of tomato soup when the subway takes off, or stops abruptly. I also know you would gladly pick up the food left behind, to prevent the train from becoming infested with roaches, rodents, flies and rats.
It's so nice to have people like you around; because laws that the rest of us have to live with - simply don't apply to you. Oh, you are so fantastic.
It is still about you.
There is nothing stopping you from taking a cab or buying a car instead of eating a big sloppy spaghetti dinner on the subway.
People like you are the reason that some schools banned PB&J’s as one kid out of a million is bothered by them.
Rather than six billion people changing their lives to suit you why don’t you change your life instead? Or are you more important than everyone else put together?
Also, kindly don’t wish disease on my children just to make a point. Talk about saying something awful.
Ask a stupid question time, get a stupid question in response.
Is everyone in the airplance seated with a tray? (Yup)
Do you get served your meal at take-off/landing; or do you get served once the aircraft has reached cruising altitude AND the air is smooth? (about 30 after take-off and at least 45 minutes prior to landing)
Why do you suppose they do that? (prevent spills)
Does a Subway reaching a cruising speed for more than a few minutes? (Nope) Is everyone seated? (Nope)
Do you now understand how foolish that question was?
Is it okay if one pickes their nose on the subway?
Well, you are certainly passionate about this subject.
An honest question: Washington D.C. and dozens of other major cities around the world ban food/drink on their subways. The people with medical conditions in those cities seem to manage, and their subways are cleaner, too. Why is NYC different?
Do you have a provlem with reading comprehension? I said “I hope you NEVER have to deal with a child with type 1 diabetes.”That is NOT wishing anything on your child that is trying to get you to open your eyes and understand that denigrating someone for a disabilty that CAN kill them is not nice.In a situation where I can die yes it is all about me then just as if it were you it would be all about you.Perhaps not being able to afford a car or a cab would stop one from that?
