gibberish


On the day that Scottish health worker from Blantyre is praised for her selflessness (she contracted Ebola) pettiness still abounds in the SNBTS.

I’m absolutely raging at the SNBTS.

I was phoned yesterday and asked to attend a blood donation session in South Queensferry today as I am O negative and it’s in short supply. I said sorry but I was playing golf.

However, upon being informed the session was open till 330 I said I’d try to get back for it. Consequently I literally ran off the course missing lunch (Lundin Links near Leven in Fife) but got caught in a massive diversion after the A915 was shut due to an accident.

I piled my way across Fife (at high speed when possible) and arrived at 3.36.

“Can you squeeze a last one in?”
“Computer says no.”
“There was an accident in Fife and it took me an hour to get here.”
“We have to draw the line somewhere.”
“I was phoned yesterday and asked to attend.”
“We have to draw the line somewhere.”
“I’m O negative.”

“We have to draw the line somewhere.”

Well bugger off and get back to your line drawing pedantry.

I tried folks.

Staff on that session had probably already done a full day’s work. Staff are a) entitled to go home at finishing time and b) more likely to make mistakes when they’re tired and hungry. It wasn’t your fault the traffic was bad, but it wasn’t theirs either. Your blood isn’t superfluous, it’s very necessary, but it’s unreasonable to keep a whole team behind for one person’s donation.

The hall was full. Not even all the thumbpricks had been done. It was perfectly reasonable to fit me in. I’ve given 40 units. I’d have skipped the cup of tea at the end. no big deal.

If they had let one late person in they would need to let them all in. And they would be there all night.

Also, could you not have skipped the golf? If you felt so strongly about it….

Oh, I didn’t realise you were the manager of the service and can determine what’s reasonable for the staff and the other donors. I do apologise.

No South Side Socialist I’m not the manager. Mangers in my experience have the ability to make decisions on the basis of circumstance. But to make an informed decision one has to weigh up the pros and cons of a situation not just quote the “computer says no” rule book.
