So, I had just started my new job...it was about a month after my first day and I was finally feeling sort of confident. I was talking to the President and owner of the company in the elevator. I stepped out of the elevator (which was full of people)...and I was trying to wrap up the conversation with the President so the doors could shut, when all of sudden my pump (which I had cleverly tucked into the thigh of my spanx underwear under my knee-length skirt) slips down, and is now hanging between my legs like a pendulum! I looked down; looked back up at the elevator full of people and the president of the company, and just said -- Oh, that's just my insulin pump -- don't mind me!
OMG!!! I would have been so embarassed. I know I've embarassed myself at work before too...I hook my pump in the middle of my bra. During a unit meeting I started digging up my shirt to turn an alarm off. I noticed some people looking at me a little funny and then I realized...did I just dig up my shirt in front of these people?? I know I've had issues with some of the families I work with too (I'm a social worker). They accuse me of trying to secretly record our meetings when they see my pump on my belt!!
HAHA. The ' its just my insulin pump dont mind me' part is the best ive heard yet...of course i wouldve been totally embarressed too!!!
thats so funny! that skirt thing has happened to me before, but i got this velcro thing that goes on my thigh and has a little pocket for my pump that i wear with dresses and skirts! u should get one LOL
Like not even an hour ago I stood up and forgot to stick my pump in my pocket. It was swinging, and the only thing I could think of was this post :P
I tried thinking of something funny to say pertaining to it. But no one would have got it :P
That's hilarious. Were you embarrassed?
That has totally happened to me before!!! And it always happens at the worst time!!!! Oh pump malfunctions!!
I hear you. I could write a book about pump malfunctions! lol
