i agree. a few months ago i was out and about and noticed a guy had a medtronic and i about died when i saw it. he was with his girlfriend and family so i just kept my mouth shut because i don't know how people are going to react to some crazy person going up to them and saying. "hi, how long have you been pumping?"
