For those of you who don’t get this right away, it’s all right. That’s why I’m here! Unless one works at this office, I imagine that it would be quite hard to get there unless it was during lunch!! But they are closed during lunch!

SCENARIO:

You’re at work.  Lunch hour is coming up and you are going to run that errand during lunch hour.  Today, it’ finally getting the time to have that blood test stuff done that your doctor prescribed 4 and a half weeks ago.  11:55am comes, you shut down your personal Facebook account early and you head on over to this office to get the blood draw done.  You get there and you see this sign!!!!

C’mon! Does the WHOLE office all really have to shut down at lunch time???

Do ya think they all go to McDonalds. Then they all come back, realize no one is there so they decide to check their own LDL’s, HDL’s, HTML’s, EIEIO’s and LMNOP’s?

I think the person who decided Noon was a good time for all of the phlebotomists to take lunch was probably unsuccessful at their previous consulting jobs:

Suggesting grocery stores to be closed on the weekends

Church closings on Sundays

And “POP ONLY” sales 4 hours before all Steelers, Pirates and Penguin games at all beer distributors.

Imagine if you actually wasted your 5 minute-vending-machine-stride-gum-lunch-break to get to your office..or worse, our coveted SMOKE BREAK!!!!

Dr. Lou Stool (my G.I. doctor) said I eat too many Kennywood corndogs and ordered me to get my blood tested.  You’re closed before work.  You’re closed AFTER work and you’re closed during the lunch break.

Here’s what I have determined out of all of this… the phlebotomists have lunch with bank tellers and postal employees every day.  I know this cuz,  when I’ve had other errands to run at lunch… get some stamps, cash a check… GUESS WHO ELSE IS AT LUNCH DURING OUR LUNCH HOUR??

As a heads up to you lab folks, I’m getting a job at your favorite pizza place.  And every time you call in for a lunchtime delivery, I’m gonna simply say, “Thanks for your order.  We’ll just drop those pizzas off when it’s convenient for us.. about 2am on our way home from work,” Ya Jagoffs!
