Best Response to: Unsolicited (and uninformed) Medical Advice

From Jackie:

My adopted son has ADHD and I’ve had to deal with quite a few people who have some seriously strong opinions on how I should be treating the condition. 
They seem to believe they are qualified, medical professionals based on some random article they read on the Internet.

And they think my child’s medical decisions should be their business too. 
Um, no. From now on I plan to respond with:
^Sure you can have input into my son’s medical treatment. Just as soon as I see the results of your last physical. 

Oh, what’s that you say? Your medical records are personal? 

Yep, so are my son’s.^

It has recently come to my attention that not all of my readers can easily tell when I’m being sarcastic. That is truly unfortunate, so finding a solution was imperative. ^Obviously, the easiest answer is to assume that if something can be read with sarcasm, it should be^; but that’s not really workable, I guess. After reviewing several options for a “sarcasm font”, I’ve come up up with my own system. Whenever you see italics inside carrots (^snark^), that is my “sarcasm font”.
