Oy vey

I am giggling like a madwoman. It's really not funny, really. Heh. Ok, I have an appointment with the endo on Tuesday Wednesday. I thought it was on Tuesday, but it's on Wednesday. I opened up my pump box last week to get out the data cable and download my data. Except, it wasn't in there. The software was, the meter was, but the cable was not. What? So, I called MM to have one overnighted to me. They said it was supposed to be in the box, so they sent it for free! I got it today. I was very surprised to see that it's just a USB cable with a test-strip-looking thing on the end of it. It looks flimsier than actual test strips, even. So I plugged everything in and started installing. Somewhere in the middle, I accidentally knocked the meter off the chair. The connector broke off inside the meter *and* at the base of the cable. So I had this cable about five minutes and broke it. I called MM again and got the same guy (he must think I'm a nut) and he said he'd send me two more, free overnight shipping. But it's the last time!

I shouldn't laugh, really, but come on!

Drea - I was wondering if I was the only one! I'm surprised I haven't heard of more people breaking it.

Chrissie - True! I just had to - it was so absurd.
