My cat takes B12 injections. When we picked up the supplies, I noticed that they charged us $15 for 12 insulin syringes. I said, "Wow, I could get a whole box of 100 syringes for less than this!" Everyone in the room stared at me.

Finally the tech said, "uh, are you in the health care industry?" I said, "no, I have Type 1 diabetes." After a long pause where she looked like she wanted to say something, she said, "me, too."

These syringes came from J., though, since the needles on mine are too small for cats. ~$1 for 10.
