So I've had some interesting things happen in my first two days using the OmniPod.
First, I'm feeling a little sore around the site of the pod, more where the cannula is inserted, and I look through the window and see that its a little tiny bit red around it. I have it on my right on my belly about 3 inches away from my bellybutton. I think its because its in an area where its getting moved around, and the little bit of fat I have in the are makes it especially pliable. Is this something anyone else experienced?
Also, I had a little bit of an...encounter at Red Robin yesterday.
I went in to Red Robin with my friend to get lunch. The waiter came up, greeted us, blah blah. I literally had my OmniPod clutch sitting right there on the table next to me. He could clearly see it. I asked for the nutritional menu. (BTW, I've been here before with the same waiter and he did something similar to this but not to this extreme) He brought it back and then kept glancing at my PDM/clutch and looked at me and said "If you're looking to cut calories, [blah blah blah]..." He went on an on about it. I gave him that eyebrow raise face. You know, then one `:|
Anyway, I said, "No, I'm not but thanks." Then he says, "Oh, okay so are you on like weight watchers? Cause if you are looking to cut fat, then you should [blah blah blah]."
This is at the point where I am like ARE YOU SERIOUS? IT'S NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS! TAKE A HINT!
By the way, I'm fairly small, 5'10" 140lb. Do you seriously think I was trying to cut fat? NO.
Me: "No, I am not on a diet I just need to know the carb count."
My friend pipes in, "She's diabetic dude, get it? She just needs to know the carbs so she can count them, but thank you."
Me (embarrassed as crap for myself and the guy standing there yet not really feeling bad because he just dug himself into a hole): "Yeah, thank you."
Him: "OHHH....okay!" (No joke, this actually happened...) "High five!" :-| (I high fived him with little enthusiasm, I'm not that rude!)
Him *keeps going*: "So, how long have you...been like that?"
Me: *thinking: is this guy serious? Am I being punk'd?* "8 months."
Him: "Cool!" (Yeah, he said that.) "So if you want to cut carbs, the red robin seasoning won't take away the flavor if you don't have it but it will cut the carbs if you want me to ask them not to add it. Or I can do a lettuce wrap instead of a bun...or [blah blah blah]."
Me: *thinking: I said I wanted the menu to COUNT carbs, no? I did. *"Um, no thanks. I'll just have that nutritional info."
Him: *keeps adding some more ideas of his on what he thinks will cut carbs and finally sees I'm not with him in this little convo and says* "Okay, I'll be right back with that. Do you want me not to add that sauce to your burger? That will cut some carbs."
*thinking: OKAY YOU ARE A GRADE-A IDIOT if you think the best way to cut carbs is via seasoning (I checked, 0 carbs) and sauce on a burger. And it's not anyof your buisness anyway!!*
Me: "No. Thank you." (That was forced out of my mouth by habit from being raised to be a lady.)
We got switched to a different waiter because his shift was over that was it with him. But isn't that just totally insane? I would never have butted into anyone's business like that!
Okay, sorry, end of my weird/long story!
Thanks for reading!
