Last night the Hubs and I were out purchasing me some golf clubs (Because, you know, I golf every weekend. *Note – I’ve never been golfing, but it looks fun and I had a gift card.) We were chatting with the sales dude and he notices my pump, which was clipped to the pocket of my jeans, facing out. He asks, “Is that…ohhh, is that a camera?”. I’ve heard pager and cell phone, but never a camera! I just said, “Oh, no, it’s my insulin pump.” He replies “Ohhhhh, looks like a camera!” Maybe he thought I was a super techy secret shopper? I responded “Nope, just my pancreas.”
The Hubs said I made the guy feel bad, but I was just trying to be my sarcastic self. How do you respond when people ask you what your pump is or mistake it for something else?
