I loaned out my thermapen to my boss and it came back without the battery cover. I don't have the heart to say anything to him since he does so much for me already.

Does anyone have a broken thermapen laying around and would be willing to donate a battery cover. I don't care about color. Maybe another color would speed it up.

BTW... I have the older style.

Thanks,
Nate

Hi Nathan,

Umm... just how about asking him in a casual manner? It might of got knocked loose in his car even as he
was bringing it back to you or to work. If he is the boss, then he should know about being responsible! :tape:

I noticed it when he handed it back to me. We looked all over his motor home. I think is was a drinking accident, if I had to guess. I could see he felt bad, but I told him not to worry about it.

If I break something when I am drinking, I replace it. Just saying. Something like that, boss or not it should be replaced. Yes, your boss does a lot for you, but he was using your personal equipment. If you broke something of his would he expect you to replace it.

My wife doesn't even get to use my Thermapen.

If I had known there was a market for Thermapen battery covers I would have saved mine that were drowned in the 2009 Frozen Burst Pipe Disaster.

But you would have got an ORANGE cover, which aren't anywhere as good as the RED ones I have now. Oh, and my wife doesn't get to use mine either.

So I emailed ThermoWorks and here is the response I got.

Nathan,

I can get a replacement battery cover shipped out to you today at no charge. Which address would you like me to ship to?

Dear Thermapen,

I loaned my super fast Red Thermapen to my boss and he lost the whole thing. Was wondering...

My honest opinion is to don a ski mask and creep up to him one night while he is walking to his house from his car, and stab him in his neck with it.

Love the happy ending. But if you had gotten a red cover you could have the accuracy of the yellow and speed of the red. I might have to lose my cover...
