Ok, I have a job for everyone out there who is eligable to donate blood (yes Liz, I know you're too light, and yes, I know that they hate you, Jeff and Scott). Please make sure that you start going often enough that they don't need to harass me. You'd think that if it's been 5 months since the last time that I donated that they'd figure out that there's obviously something up, and I have a reason to. But apparently no, people just forget for three months fairly frequently. This is the second (at least) phone call I've gotten reminding me that I'm eligable to donate. This is the second time I've had to explain that no, they wouldn't let me donate if I went, so there's no point in me going.
Eligability to donate goes on your calendar people. That's why they give you those little stickers (you, not me, because I put it on my computer. I'd have a hard time seeing what I was typing if I used those stickers). Maybe then we can train blood services to have a better algorithm in their notification computers.
