That's funny, Gregory was just telling me a story like that in the car tonight.  He remembered a doctor who couldn't get an injection into his arm and wouldn't let Gregory do it himself.  Gregory said, look, you're just bruising my arm, so here are your choices:  either you let me do it, or you knock me out, or I go home.  The doctor said, no no, you are the patient, I am the doctor, I know what I am doing.  Gregory said yes, but its my arm, and I know where the vein is, and you aren't getting anywhere near it.  They knocked him out.  The next time he saw his neph, she said that the doctor had told her G was aggressive, and she said the doctor wasn't impressed.  "I wasn't impressed with him either" said Gregory.

I had a tech who, on the 6th stab I told her to stop. She still does not like hooking me up even though I stick myself now.  She needs to get over it.
