Mom: “What’s in a Roy Rogers?”

Me: “Grenadine and Coke.”

Son: “I want that!”

Mom: “No, you can’t have Coke for breakfast!” *to me* “Can you make it with Sprite instead?”

Recruiting For New Blood

, , , , | Right | February 27, 2010

(I am drawing blood from donors at a blood drive.)

Donor: “I’ve never seen you here before.”

Me: “Well, yes, I am relatively new, but I’ve been involved with [Blood Bank] for a long time.”

Donor: “So, are you like a volunteer or something?”

Me: “No, I am an employee. I had to undergo several weeks of training for this.”

Donor: “But you look too young to be an employee!”

Me: “I assure you, I am a full employee.”

Donor: “But you’re only like fourteen!”

Me: “Actually, sir, I’m twenty, almost twenty-one.”

Donor: “No way!”

Me: “Let me put it this way. Would you really want a fourteen-year-old volunteer removing a fourteen-gauge needle from your arm and handling your blood?”

Donor: “Good point. Carry on.”
