One way to deal with that kind of bad-faith opposition is to draw the person in, treat them as if they were operating in good faith, and draw them into a conversation about how they actually would solve the problem.

Sure, but frankly I'm not sure where this fits into my story. --C

I usually do the blood donations at work and it all sounds very similar. The only thing that I have to add is on the rare occasion that I've gone to the blood donation center in Timonium, they actually did keep my appointment. So maybe the problem is with Whitemarsh.

I wish I could add something random and off the wall like the last commentor. It really adds a surrealistic aspect to the blog. Sadly, I'm just not that creative.


Stanford Hospital here in CA has a blood center. Because they are one of the premier children's hospitals, especially for cancer treatment, they have a blood center with three permanent campuses. They always need blood and platelets (a clotting factor). You get to know the staff, especially platelet donors like me, because platelets can be donated about every 2 weeks. And platelet donations are always scheduled, so you get taken right away.

During a visit to the ER for something unrelated, the ER doctor found out I donate and thanked me. Pretty cool when the guy who uses the end product says thanks.

The Cast

  • Wife
    Formerly GF. Self-explanatory, I think.
  • S & B
    Our former next-door neighbors. Their given names begin with neither S nor B, although the names that everyone calls them do begin with S and B. Go figure.
  • Wee One
    Wife's daughter, who is almost eighteen years old. An artist and aspiring actress who spends an inordinate amount of time getting physical therapy. She'll be starting college in the fall. We'll be in debtor's prison by the spring.
  • Daughter
    My 25-year-old daughter, a college graduate from SUNY New Paltz and working in the world of theater, making props. Currently her work can be seen on the campus of the University of North Carolina in Durham, with the Playmakers.
