“Donating blood is a very personal act of charity, because you can’t just write a cheque,” said Patricia Green from Glencoe in a letter to the editor.
Hers was the second letter last week complaining about the attitude of the staff and the bureaucracy at the Blood Bank in Port-of-Spain.
Mr V F Nothnagel-Gurley, from Blue Range, had called in advance to enquire about the procedure, and was told that opening hours were from 8am to 3pm.
He arrived promptly at 12.15 pm with three precious donors, and was “flabbergasted” to be told: “We stop taking blood for today.”
His protest that he had called in advance and was told that the facility would be opened until 3 pm met this response:
“Well, yuh talk to the wrong people; yuh talk to dem upstairs and they don’t know what going on down here.”
Who gives ah fuck? Dey taking the mudder cunt blood and pumping it into the veins of fuckin criminals to keep dem alive, when poor people gone it doh have for dem.. Fuck d blood bank and the fuckin lazy nigga nurses.
