At Palmetto, occasionally one blood would arrive and ask people to donate blood. This year I was going to donate blood but they took forever to just stick a needle in me. The way I got dragged into donating blood was because my friend wanted me to join him. He wanted me to tag along because he didn't want to go alone so I just went. We ended up not even going at the same time so we were alone for this donation that was going to happen.
When I got there, the place was empty so thought I was going to be out quick. Which is what I wanted but that didn't happen. The people made me wait to get my blood type and then made me wait again to actually take out my blood. After waiting for about 30 minutes, some lady told some of us that were waiting that we could go into the truck and donate. So I followed the lady into the truck and then waited for about 20 min until some other lady walks into the truck and says that the truck is only for the adults.
So I had to leave and then go back to the gym, but when I got there, there was a huge line of students waiting to give blood. So just decided to leave and go to class because I waited all that time for nothing. I guess the people didn't want my blood because they just made me wait and never drew any. Before I left to go to class I took some pizza with me as payment for making me wait all that time. This is why I will never donate blood at palmetto and every year they ask me to donate I just take the consent form and throw it away.
