I test for STD every time I meet a new partner. To me it’s the only way. (*I am not trying to educate you or trying to make my point. What you do with your own life is none of my business. And I respect your decision.)
On my last STD test, there was a series of mistakes made from my service provider that I had to go to the hospital 3 times. I even received an email saying "Please come back for more testing" – Which made my heart drop. Then I learned that they have misplaced my sample.
I was pretty upset, so I emailed the company. I told them that they need to compensate me with money. Then I blocked that event out of my memory.
Months later, they sent me a check for $109 (roughly 50% of testing fee). I was satisfied. That’s the correct way to treat repeat customers.
I wanted to celebrate my winning. So, I told my co-workers my story and invited everyone in my team (4 of them) to a lunch.
I took them to our favorite BBQ place that we go frequently. My co-workers thanked me for lunch and we all celebrated my good health.
They all laughed when I told them "I bought a deluxe package. I paid for 6 STD tests and got free syphilis (test)."
Later, our department boss came by. He apologized for not joining us (I invited him also). And he congratulated me for my good health. 🙂
