I donno if he was a T2 or not..but he was elderly(had to have been in his late 60's/early 70's), overweight and was apparently not used to testing, as he was still complaining about it.
He had one of those auccu check meters you see advertised on tv for T2's all the time(or at least I do) and fuck was that thing loud!!
so I asked him how he liked it. and he said it was fine. and so i told him about mine, and how you could plug in your exercise and all that. he got it confused with an old one touch he had had, so i showed him and he went "oo that's a fancy little set-up".
i didn't mean to show off, just talking about meters and trying to hint that maybe a one touch would be good for him(he opened up a logbook and started trying to remember the date and stuff) but without saying it in my usually blunt ways.
so he asked me how much it set me back, and i simply replied in a normal tone that i can't recall my mom or myself ever paying for a meter in the 15years since i was diagnosed with T1. that i always get them for free from the drug store, cuz it's the test strips they make the money off of.
he didn't seem to impressed and quickly after moved to the other waiting room near the front desk(when we both arrived seating was only available outside the lab). and quickly looked away from me when i walked in and sat down in the seat next to him(only one free) because my number was gonna get called next. haha.
