I'm Allergic To Low-Fat

A 300 pound pregnant woman just came in my office with a prescription for whole milk...let that sink in...

We only give whole milk to 1 year olds, and children/adults who are malnourished. Her excuse? "I don't like the way it tastes." To make it better, she got really mad at me when I (nicely) told her no. Not that I'm surprised. If you're 300 pounds do you really think you need whole milk? Really? REALLY??


  1. What?! How did she get a RX? What was the diagnosis and who the heck is her doctor?! Oh WIC!

  2. haha I know!! The dx read, "can't tolerate other milk" lol, so literally the first thing to pop in my head?? " she allergic to less fat??" When I asked she just said she doesn't like it. But I'll tell ya, she was angry! She even started complaining about other food on the checks she doesn't like and wanted me to replace those with other things! I'm taking a pay cut for trying to help her, and she just wants to complain about her free food. ok I'm done :)
