I am almost 40 and I have no freakin' clue what my blood type is. I can tell you my cholesterol numbers, blood pressure, etc. But I don't think I have ever been told my blood type. I also pulled my most recent physical blood work and another set of work I had done for life insurance. And the blood type is nowhere on there.

I even called my physician today and they don't know either.

Why is this? Is it simply that testing is so quick in the event of an emergency that medically, you don't really need to know anymore. So it's more just a convenience?

Easiest way to find out is give blood mate. Been donating for 30 years - all warm red sticky O positives!

That's how I found out I was B+ years ago from the card the Blood Center mailed.

I give blood every chance I get at work, but I haven't received a card in years.

I found out when I joined the Marine Corps at 17 years old. I also had to have a tag on my flight vest if we got shot down or I was injured in combat. I'm AB+.

The Blood Center called me the other day looking for my type of blood.....

Unfortunately, I didn't get to go. Besides, that ******* 16 gauge needle hurts.....:no:

$500.00 a pint...in case you hear "he's bleeding out and we don't have matching blood". Let me know, I'm willing to trade withyou now, in case you want to store some up.

Edit: SinGa...you messed up my selling pitch.LOL
