While trying to find a method to back light a 0.002 in (0.05 mm) channel at work, I tried my EDC flashlight; my D11 V.2. Got’ a say, with its cool white light and variable brightness, the D11 performed perfectly for this purpose.
It seemed indicative of someone who is not a CPF’er, when one of the engineers said, “I’m surprised, your cheap little flashlight worked so well.” I immediately responded, “No, the D11 with trit is not a cheap little flashlight.” He actually tried to correct me, “Sure it is, you can get those things for a buck at the gas station.” I told him that if he could buy NiteCore D11-V2 flashlights with the tritium vials installed for just one dollar each, than I would buy everyone he could find for five dollars each.
I can hardly wait to see what flashlights, if any, he brings in tomorrow. After all, I did remind him and spell out the: brand, model, and accessory in an email.
I guess I wouldn’t have pushed it with the reminder email if only he hadn't tried to correct me, oh well, hoping to give some good natured ribbing at work tomorrow.
