Saddest Job on Earth

Have just come back from an insurance-company sponsored medical checkup at Mt. E and it's possible to say that the most unrewarding job on this planet would be the one held by the person who goes from clinic to clinic taking blood samples.

Now that's someone whose well of sympathy is bone dry and dusty, with tumbleweed. I don't believe she even carries around tissues anymore for people who go into hysterics because they're afraid of needles, assuming she ever did.

A good day for this woman is taking blood from a bunch of random people who just grit their teeth and shut up. A bad day for this woman is ... probably today, for reasons I'd rather not go into right now. All I can say is if I were in her position I'd have at least tried to pretend to show sympathy. And for the record, the phrase "Can someone please hold her arm still I don't want the needle to break" is not a sympathetic remark.

I would have thought she derives immense satisfaction from seeing the fear in people's eyes as she sticks and plunges the needle into writhing unwilling flesh, then secretly (or not so secretly) laughs her evil laugh as she slowly but surely sucks the life out of the human soul she has her bony fingers tightly grasped around.

you know wat, no matter wat, it doesn't even hurt compared with what the dimwits do here. comparatively, they butcher your veins here. I bruised for a week after that - like someone tried to tear my veins out. quite a balmy job really if you're feeling vengeful with the hubby that day. stab, twist, push deeper, extract-oh-so-sloowlllyyyy, pushing deeper as extracting, jerk out needle violently when done. dimwits.

there's a nurse called christine at the blood lab in mount e - she's a gem. i had the most unhorrifying time getting my blood sample taken by her. :)

What chap with the head transplant? Am v. curious now. I knew I missed something.

Val, you are so lucky. So so lucky. So so so lucky.

the saddest job in the world is the lab technician that has to go thru your stool sample...

Think about that every single case, every day of your career is thrawling thru shit.
