I worked the night shift last night. I'm working the night shift tonight as well.

But today is the blood drive here in Rhinelander, so I decided to stay up all day and go donate some of mine, as I have done 41 times before.

When I arrived, the huge parking lot had many cars in. But it had no disabled parking spaces. I drove around the lot trying to find a spot close to the building, but did not find one.

Several Red Cross people were out there, leaning against a wall and smoking. They did not seem a least bit concerned about the car with a disabled license plate not finding a spot. So, I returned home.

I called 1-800-GIVE-LIFE, and was essentially told What do you want me to do about it?

Well, the next time they call me and complain about the shortage of blood. I'll just ask them the same question.
