    I work in a charity shop and have for the past 5 years. In that time 5 members of staff have been diagnosed with diabetes. Before that I worked in another charity shop, and today I bumped into on of the volunteers from that shop, and guess what - she had beeen told she was diabetic too. Let this be a warning. Never work in charity shops, they are a pool of diabetics. Could it be something in peoples old clothes that carries some virus that starts it off :?: Or is it just that we are a load of crumblies :lol:
