I HATE Needles!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For the second time around, I'm bearing the bruise inflicted by [to my opinion] an incompetent person. I posted in December how I got bruised because a phlebotomist couldn't find a vein to draw blood from. I thought she was the worst at that time. Boy was I wrong...

Yesterday, I went for another round of blood tests. Same place that I go to everytime. At first I was happy because I didn't get the same person that drew my blood the last time I was there in December. My happiness didn't last long. This guy [yes, a guy] is worse than the other girl. He felt for a 'good vein' in both arms then went for the right arm. As always I wasn't looking while he was drawing blood. I got a bit restless because it was taking him longer than the norm so I looked over only to see him discarding the blood drawn from my right arm. WHY???? He said the blood stopped flowing and it wasn't enough to use for even one test. Buset! I almost bolted out of there but I kept my cool. He poked the left arm and drew the blood needed for the test. Needless to say I wasn't a happy camper when I left the facility. A patient/customer joked while I was on my way out and said: Tell them poking both arms isn't fair! I just smiled but I almost went back in to tell the dang phlebotomist what that guy said....

I hate NEEDLES! This is why...
