This story came up on my Facebook memories today. I wrote this on Facebook three years ago, and I had forgotten all about it. Funny story so I am going to share today.

Here is another funny but true story about Mexico. I usually eat at the same lunch place near where I live. Except when I am at the port, and I grab a sandwich there or some junk food. Well I told the lady at my lunch place where I always eat that I am a diabetic so I have to watch what I eat and so forth. I try not eat hamburgers and fries and stuff like that a lot, and try to eat healthy. She informed me that they delivered to the port so she could have my lunch sent to me at my office in the port, so I said no problem. Well the other day my lunch came and it was BBQ chicken and salad and some carrot sticks, no rice or beans or anything else, so I thought well she is just thinking that maybe I need a salad, no problem. She only speaks Spanish and no English, so I thought something must have got lost in the translation. Well today I was working and they brought my lunch by, she always sends me a diet coke, and I opened my food and it was just meat and some kind of stew. Well I got to have rice sometimes and I called her and said in Spanish “I have no rice and beans, just meat whats the problem.” She told me in Spanish, “Senor you are a diabetic, I sent you that on purpose, you don’t need to eat rice, what I sent you was a good diabetic meal, and as long as you eat from my place you will continue to eat right, and stick to your diabetic diet, is that a problem?” So I said No, Senora, Gracias. Looks like I have to find another place to eat now, when I want to cheat. Here is her and her husband at their kitchen. Whenever I eat there she always comes around and rubs my back and asks me how I am doing.
