"You may not be "cute" but you certainly have a great deal more manners than she had. I can't believe that she did not think that you could have overheard her conversation. You are a true gentleman."

"Silly me, I thought tablets meant Glucose tablets, and it will not let me go back and change the original tablet question. Also, I use a pump and I do not take shots at all.. How does a pump person answer those questions?"
