Coworker: Hey dude.
Most of the people I work with I feel are like family and close friends. There are a few that piss me off but most are pretty chill. This exchange this morning cracked me up.
C: Dude, so I was wondering if most people keep their pumps in their socks or pockets like you.
G: You were wondering that? Why?
C: (laughs) Well I mean do people rock it on their belt like a Black Berry or what?
G: I used to but since I have a Blackberry that I wear on my belt I was starting to look a little like Batman which is not as cool as I thought it would be.
C: I saw this commercial with these blood monitors but in different colors. Have you seen those?
She is talking about the One Touch Ultra Mini’s that are available in 6 different colors. I use mine when I do not want to carry my bag around and I can put the meter and lancing device in my pocket easily because of their compact size.
G: I actually have a green one. It was gift from a good friend of mine.
C: That one was my favorite!
G: Yeah, they are pretty cool.
C: Dude, it makes me want to get one and check my blood sugar. Like, BAM check me out and my stylin’ green machine.
G: (laughing) Kind of like when people got all into wearing fake glasses because they thought they looked cool.
C: Ugh! I HATED that phase. People would come up to me and say, “Cute glasses. Are they real?” I mean, YES. Of course they are real! I will crash my car without them!
G: Yeah. This would be exactly like that.
C: Oh… I get it.
