She can't give blood, can you?

I got this postcard a few months ago.
It lists a few requirements for blood doners.
Apparently u have to be able to say "No" for each requirement in order to enable you to donate.

The requirements stated on the postcards were:

. are you pregnant?
. have u recently given birth?
. do u have a serious heart condition?
. had a tattoo in the last 12 months?
. over 70?
. low in iron?
. weigh less than 45kgs?
. did u live in the uk for over 6 mths between 1980 and 1996?


I thought I was perfectly fine for the job,
But reading down the list,
I noticed one requirement that kinda "wow" me...
And just like that,
Im cut off the eligible blood donating group.

Guess which?

... ooH... and first let me say,

But nwayz,
NO!! I'm not pregnant and I didnt get a tattoo!! (yet)
I actually failed the last requirement.

I was caught off guard...
Cuz I had in fact lived in the UK for 3 years,
And that was from 1987 to 1990.

*boo hoo*
