I was at the blood doctor today and she wanted to take some blood tests. They take the blood onsite. The tech was a young 20ish women, I'm 63. I sat in the chair and jokingly said, so you're the vampire, but at least you're a very pretty vampire. She turned and looked at me and I thought oh no, politically incorrect thing to say! Then she smiled and said thank you I really appreciate you saying that, it makes me feel good! Then she drew 5 vials of blood LOL. At least not all young women are offended by a compliment grin.

Just think, the police could have been called, you would have made the local news, and next thing you know another 30 women would have claimed you complimented them. Maybe as far back as 30 or 40 years ago. You got lucky.

I made a Dracula joke at work a little while ago forgetting that the woman I was talking to was from Romania. I apologized in case Romanians are sensitive about that. She wasn't offended.

No idea what size needle was used but it was painless once I came to grin.

My father's parents are from Transylvania, it was part of Austria Hungary at the time they lived there.

Just be careful. It's a brave new world out there and there is this new concept of "microaggression" and believe it or not it's being taken seriously and the consequences are mindbending. There are people out there that are fully prepared to be a victim of the wrong statement no matter how innocent the intent might have been. The Haloween Carnival at an elementary school was even a victim of all this and canceled. It was said that children dressed in costumes were misappropriating someone else's gender or culture.

I always disliked needles. During my adventure with breast cancer. I got blood drawn a lot. I used to complement the nurse if I didn't flinch when stuck. Some are really good at it, others not so much.
