This might sound kind of odd, but I just met a gal who is a Pharm Rep... Should I be wary of her? She's very attractive. Should I believe that they're all whores for doctors' money?

Sorry Mr. Rost,
This chick is one of your former cheerleader bimbos you talk about, had to let her go.. If you want a chuckle, read this conversation below... You see I had a friend who used to be a Pharm Rep, another beautiful blonde.. She told me to be careful of any woman I meet that is in that business as a lot of them are dirty. Well, I asked this new girl if she was one of the dirty ones and she got all bent out of shape about it... then today I mentioned the Glenn Beck show and your book and she really got upset.. Won't talk about her job or anything. I believed her several days ago when she said she wasn't one of "those girls" but her complete lack of opening up anything about her job shoved me the wrong way (whether she's a whore or not) She's obviously pissed that I know what goes on.. I would have stopped talking to her anyways because of how uninteresting she is when we talk.. She can't hold any decent conversations (we met online) Anyways, here's a laugh for you:

Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:33:19 PM): hey watch the rest of Glenn Beck, he's got a segment coming up about the healthcare industry, it's on
CNN headline news, (REDACTED on cox)
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:38:11 PM): I may get this fellow's book
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:41:21 PM): which book?
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:41:42 PM): Whistleblower
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:41:51 PM): oh ok
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:42:15 PM): here read this
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:43:12 PM):
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:45:28 PM): here's Rost's blog
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:45:28 PM):
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:45:38 PM): reading
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:47:35 PM): Do you just not respect my profession?
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:47:52 PM): no no, not that at all
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:49:14 PM): I only brought this up today because I know it was wrong of me to ask the way I did about your job, but at least I wasn't off the mark when I asked about your job based on what was told to me by my friend... and now made public by this former higher up with Pfizer about some of the things that go on in your profession... Not saying you're one of them at all..
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:49:43 PM): so this was your way of proving your point
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:50:54 PM): well I admit it was wrong to ask when, and how I did and I apologized for that.. but you made me feel like a really bad guy for asking a reasonable question, just not asked in the best of ways
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:51:15 PM): You say you're not one of those women, and I believe you 100%
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:51:26 PM): but you keep bringing this up
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:52:38 PM): well it just happened to be on the real story segment of Beck's show tonight.. and it was our topic of discussion a few days ago too
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:52:44 PM): and
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:52:48 PM): I wanted your opinion
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:53:07 PM): what do you think about what he says?
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:53:48 PM): Thank you for the links
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:53:52 PM): have a great night
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:54:15 PM): excuse me?
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:54:35 PM): what didnt you understand?
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:54:49 PM): well i was asking you a question
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:54:53 PM): and you said "have a great night"
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:54:58 PM): yes and
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:55:47 PM): well I wanted to know what you
thought. Do you think that a lot, very few, or no doctors write
unnecessary prescriptions so their "cute rep" gets a commission?
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:56:15 PM): I am not in the exam rooms when scripts are being written
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:56:28 PM): I understand that
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:56:34 PM): so, I can not comment
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:57:13 PM): okay
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:57:37 PM): okay
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:57:51 PM): have a great night
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 6:58:09 PM): you leaving?
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 6:58:18 PM): this conversation, yes
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:00:17 PM): you know, I don't know what's with this chip you have on your shoulder but it's not really nice.. My question was not without foundation... A good friend of mine in your business told me that there's a lot of dirty women in it.. And now this former Pfizer exec comes out with this book talking about the industry and what goes on.. You work in the industry... You don't exactly have the right to be pissy about someone trying to have a reasonable conversation
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:00:49 PM): I told you I believed you 100%
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:00:51 PM): I am not pissy
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:00:59 PM): yet you still have this attitude about discussing it
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:01:06 PM): I dont wish to have this conversation with you
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:01:10 PM): why?
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:01:10 PM): period
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:01:18 PM): it's your job
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:01:20 PM): call your "friend" and have it with her
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:01:30 PM): are you ashamed of your career or something? why can't you talk about it?
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:01:50 PM): I am definitely not ashamed
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:01:54 PM): I am great at what I do
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:02:00 PM): then what is the issue?
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:02:15 PM): no issue......I just do not wish to discuss this with you
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:02:44 PM): I do not discuss my work, outside of work
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:03:50 PM): are you ashamed of the company you work for? there's got to be something... People do not pick careers and then say nothing about them, unless they're CIA or something top secret.. It's an interesting subject, health care is a big deal in this country,,, why don't you want to discuss it at all?
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:04:44 PM): so every man you meet can't know anything about your job , or just me
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:05:15 PM): Hunky Guy, from the beginning you apprached me wrong about my job
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:05:19 PM): approached
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:06:04 PM): I approached you with what knowledge I had, and I didn't accuse, or judge..I asked... obviously not in the best way, but I did ask.. and my question not unfounded either
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:06:28 PM): you didn't say "yeah there are a lot of dirty women in this job, but I'm not one of them"
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:06:32 PM): you got mad that I even asked
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:06:41 PM): it was a rude question
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:07:14 PM): You can spin this however you wish
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:07:18 PM): answer this, please
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:07:26 PM): republican or democrat?
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:07:58 PM): what spin??? a major former pharmeceutical exec just wrote a book called Whistleblower exposing the industry,, is he lying? I'm just asking, I don't know
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:08:04 PM): I'm not registered as either
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:08:06 PM): no
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:08:14 PM): spin my answers
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:09:09 PM): I don't spin your answers, you dont' give any answers, that is what is frustrating... i ask your opinion and you say have a great night,, what spin?
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:09:28 PM): Just go away, seriously
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:10:52 PM): no I'm not going to go away, you tell me I spin your answers, WHAT answers? You haven't answered... If you're so damn ashamed of your job, pick another field,, You're totally insecure, No one I've ever met in my life is ashamed to discuss their line of work
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:11:06 PM): I am not ashamed
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:11:09 PM): yes you are
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:11:12 PM): it's obvious
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:11:14 PM): NO
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:11:20 PM): you won't even answer simple questions
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:11:28 PM): I am not discussing my job with a narrow minded little boy
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:12:03 PM): narrowminded little boy? how am I narrowminded? narrowminded would have been labeling you a pharm rep whore no matter what you said about it
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:12:12 PM): which I did not
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:12:15 PM): you tried from the start
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:12:18 PM): I never did
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:12:19 PM): I asked
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:13:31 PM): condemn a guy for asking a reasonble question
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:15:02 PM): "hey're hiring loads of attractive women, including lots of former Cheerleaders, as sales reps." and I'm not allowed to ask a question? come on.... you can't even admit that there are people in your line of work (both men and women) that substantiate what this man says
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:15:19 PM): I told you I believed you, apparently my word is not good enough
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:15:23 PM): I dont really care about the other people
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:15:26 PM): I am me not them
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:15:34 PM): thats the point
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:15:49 PM): and quite frankly, I dont care what you think
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:15:54 PM): yes, that is the point, but when I asked, I did not KNOW you
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:15:59 PM): which is WHY I asked
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:16:05 PM): You still dont know me
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:16:12 PM): and at this rate, you never will
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:16:38 PM): yeah no kidding, you won't open up, at all
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:16:58 PM): You dont make me feel comfortable to open up to you
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:17:42 PM): why not?
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:18:13 PM): because I think? because I ask questions?
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:18:17 PM): no
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:18:20 PM): well, why?
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:18:21 PM): its not that
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:18:29 PM): I've opened up to you
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:18:36 PM): even though you hardly ask me anything
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:19:12 PM): that should be your clue
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:20:59 PM): if you don't want to know me, say so... but please, lose this chip on your shoulder about people asking about your job... You know, my good friend who used to have your job. She told me to be cautious of any woman I met in that line of work. All I was doing was being cautious when I asked you. Just like you're cautious about sending out your pictures
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:21:19 PM): If you can be cautious, so can I
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:21:25 PM): I didn't condemn you for not sending me pictures
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:21:37 PM): I showed you my pic
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:22:37 PM): I wanted to see full size pictures, not a tiny little square,, I showed picture after picture of me to you, as many as I have actually so you can see what I look like.... but I respected your being cautious because there are some people on the net that are nuts...
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:22:48 PM): yet, you can't respect my being cautious
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:23:00 PM): apples and oranges
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:24:16 PM): no, not at all... again, my close friend whom I trust told me to be cautious of any women I met that are pharmaceutical reps... So I was blunt, and asked you
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:24:32 PM): you were more than bunt, you were rude
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:25:15 PM): I admit it was rude, I could have asked in a not so rude way.. but what I won't admit to is wanting to know
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:25:38 PM): i was heeding her advice
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:25:41 PM): that's what friends DO
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:25:54 PM): Look, go away
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:26:09 PM): You are remnding me of a little boy
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:26:12 PM): reminding
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:26:32 PM): you're reminding me of the pretty girl that has so much insecurity that nothing else matters
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:26:34 PM): I'm not a little boy
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:26:42 PM): I am not insecure
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:26:47 PM): you are TOTALLY insecure
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:26:50 PM): I am not
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:26:59 PM): show this conversation to any psychotherapist and see what they say
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:27:14 PM): You are so out in left field
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:27:27 PM): Once again, I see why you are single
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:27:56 PM): and I see why you're a pharm rep
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:27:57 PM): all looks
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:27:58 PM): no brains
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:28:00 PM): totally insecure
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:28:01 PM): bye.
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:28:21 PM): Little boy still living at home...big girl
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:28:42 PM): I live at home because I choose to live at home. I am building a business, a family business from the ground up
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:28:44 PM): I'm not ashamed of my job
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:28:47 PM): nor my living situation
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:28:49 PM): nor my family
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:29:01 PM): the country is built on small businesses
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:29:08 PM): Good for you..I hope your mommy keeps you warm at night
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:29:40 PM): that's real mature,, now who is the little girl,,
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:29:43 PM): former cheerleader
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:29:48 PM): now a pharm rep
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:29:52 PM): just like Rost says
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:29:59 PM): you're part of the problem
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:30:08 PM): jsut dont' have the backbone to admit it.
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:30:11 PM): your job is useless
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:30:16 PM): and you get paid lots of moeny for it
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:30:23 PM): dont be jealous
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:30:31 PM): I'm not jealous
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:30:37 PM): sounds like it
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:30:39 PM): there are men in your business too
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:30:43 PM): I'm not one of them
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:30:52 PM): bimbos and mimbos
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:31:01 PM): all looks no brains, when confronted, they run away
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:31:13 PM): or resort to insults
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:31:44 PM): what a shame... well take care.. I may be single, but I have integrity
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:31:46 PM): bye now
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:32:20 PM): go on and contribute to the healthcare problem
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:32:41 PM): Rost says that in other countries you have to be a medical professional in order to be a drug rep
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:32:45 PM): bye bye little boy
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:32:46 PM): here it's former cheerleaders
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:32:54 PM): but i'm the crazy one right
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:32:57 PM): I didn't write the book
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:33:24 PM): you're the one that has to live with it, not me...perhaps this book will end your stupid job
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:33:30 PM): I will try and spread the word about it
Cheerleader Drug Rep (9/28/2006 7:33:49 PM): Such an angry boy
Hunky Guy C (9/28/2006 7:34:37 PM): i'm not angry, I just have the real story now...all makes sense why you can't talk about the job.. you're pissed that I already know all about it.... and will find out lots more about it when I read Rost's book

haha Yes! use it in the blog but do change the names and references to locations (i.e. REDACTED on Cox)..

You blew the whistle and she didn't like it apparently.. She told me she just got out of a 4 year relationship with none other than, A DOCTOR haha... Maybe he stopped buying her products eh? I just couldn't believe when I heard Beck say "former cheerleader" and this girl just happened to be one... Give me a link to the Blog once you post it...
Hunky Guy

So I guess I just used it. I just changed the “pen names” a bit.

"Breakup over my CNN Appearance . . ."

Facilitating the failure of a budding (and completely lame) online relationship. Now that's a real public service! Gives new meaning to the title 'Dr. Rost'. lol

Anonymous Lisa said...

Wow. That Hunky Guy is a real jerk.

Blogger Argon said...

It didn't seem to be really about her profession, it sounded to me like that Hunky Guy had a lot of other issues that caused the breakup and was just using that as an excuse.

I'd agree with lisa, he came off as pretty much as a jerk in that conversation.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

I disagree, to me it looks like there wasn't even a relationship yet. The dude was angry that this gal he was trying to get to know wouldn't open up and talk, not even about her career. Asking if a girl you just met is a whore is pretty rude and he could have found out in more subtle ways, or maybe not at all. But he certainly had reason to wonder since his friend told him to be cautious, and then he saw Dr. Rost on Beck's show. Perhaps all just too coincidental. Funny stuff though.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

that guy's a jerk, and if, as the above poster suggested, there was no relationship yet, there was no reason to go after her so aggresively. good for her for refusing to answer his infantile questions.
