Ticks -vs- Phlebotomists: Fight!

Fight!

What’s the difference between the two? One is a life-force draining parasite you hope never attaches to your body, the other is a tick. Sure, you could argue that a tick is worse considering factors like they unknowingly steal your blood and may transmit  Lyme disease, Q fever, Colorado tick fever, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, African tick bite fever, Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever, tularemia, tick-borne relapsing fever, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, and tick-borne meningoencephalitis. They’re often hard to get rid of once they get attached.

A phlebotomist, however, you’re likely seeking out to steal your blood and perhaps a good chunk of your wallet. They’re also hard to get rid of once they get attached. Granted, a phlebotomist is probably much more attractive (even to ticks) and maybe they’re single and you’re single and, wow, you hit it off and magic happens. More likely, though, they take nine vials of blood from you and then follow it up with a wallet extraction cleverly labelled co-pay. The kicker is when they inform you that you may have to repeat the process depending on what they learn from their ill-gotten gains.
