OK, there are several crucial differences between Br Eng and Am Eng, but can she be serious about its taking ' honestly ...about five or six minutes to work out what I wanted was a Band-Aid'? Didn't the context help?
And the Condom/rubber/eraser thing has been a much quoted platitude that's been going around the Internet since before the World Wide Web made weak jokes so much easier to disseminate.
I think these two 'examples' are not examples at all, but just a regular part of her well-worn social 'script'.
