"But not too hard!"
"Okay!" says I, giving it a good couple of hard pumps. Then I ask how long it'll take for them to retrieve a pint, as it's been a little while since I've donated blood.
"Not too long. Anywhere from 10 to 20 min --- oh, hang on." Squints suspiciously at bag. Lifts bag. Bag is already full.
"Um, looks like you're done already." Waves very full bag of blood at me.
"Wait, what? It's only been two minutes. You just plugged me in."
She looks at bag, looks back at me, eyes narrow: "Lady, just how hard did you squeeze that thing, anyway?"
