Don't look at me funny

I fired my mammogram people today. Very empowering! I made an ass out of myself but it was worth it. Twice while my boob was in the vise men who work at the radiology place walked into the room to speak with the tech who was with me, both times leaving the door open so that everyone walking down the hall could see me. Never again.

I just can\'t believe that...I am so sorry you had to go through that....it\'s hard enough for women to even get up the nerve to get that particular test done and then something like that happens.....they (men) just think it is nothing. Someone needs to invent a machine that men have to have their p**** checked out the same way. Then that is when you will see any compassion if not any at all. you would think by now with all the so called medical breakthroughs, they could come up with a better way for us women to have our breasts checked for cancer. Sometimes I really wonder about this world we live in. Lots of hugs to you and hope everything turned out positive for you. Take care...Linda - Jennie\'s mom

OMG! First of all, it\'s bad enogh to have that done, just with the tech in the room, but to have men walk through and leave the door open, that is uncalled for, and firing them was a good thing, kudos to you! Nora

What? I can\'t believe how unprofessional. I would definitely report that to the hospital administration. Totally unnecessary. Go to another center. Love Robin

I would let the people in charge know - how horrible. I probably would have killed them & no court would have convicted you especially with a jury made up of women who have to have their boobs squeezed in that vice once a year. Hugs, Ann

This world really is crazy especially when you can\'t even have a mammogram done without the whole world watching. Report them and then go somewhere else. How humiliating!!

Let a man get his.....well....put in a vice and then have a bunch of women in and out of the room leaving the door opened....bet it would only happen once and then it\'d be on the six o\'clock news! I\'d actually like to see that broadcast...and I have a candidate!!!
