My friend Cliff  has a million of them.

A paediatric nurse had the difficult assignment of giving immunisation shots to children.  One day, she entered the examining room to give four-year-old Lizzie her vaccination.

“No, no, no!” screamed Lizzie.

“Lizzie,” scolded her mother, “that’s not polite behaviour.”

With that, the girl yelled even louder, “No, thank you!  No, thank you!”

        really. The times I remember were actually for IV infusions to be set up, not an inoculation. The solution was to stop trying, engage the child in a discussion about what could help… then to apply ‘magic cream’ and a clear plastic dressing for the magic cream to work under… then in an hour’s time to return with distractions and try again. Various distractions, such as puppetry, drawing, choosing a badge etc usually helped.
        That’s fine in a planned situation, but not so fine if the situation s an emergency one.

          I’m sorry, I’m laughing my head off. When I read your original comment, it was on the comments page, not the post. I thought you had seen the bull chasing the official for real 😀

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
