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.
... ooH... and first let me say,
I WISH IT WAS BECUZ I WEIGH LESS THAN 45kgs!!
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.
