Rats! Missed it by 2 weeks!

Foursquare and MTV have teamed up to produce the “GYT badge” for those who “check in” at a testing clinic. If only I had known about the badge I could get from checking in at a testing clinic, I would’ve waited an extra 2 weeks to go.

Wait.  No.  No, I wouldn’t have.  And I will never go back.  And I will tell anyone I know to never go back to the Chelsea Clinic because the people there are fucking racist.  I got there, filled out the forms, peed in my cup (and all over myself because if I touched ANYTHING, I probably could’ve contracted something dirty – a nasty bacteria, if not an STI), and then waited.  I waited and the people before me were called in, and then at least ten people after me were called in.

I politely asked one of the nurses if I had accidentally been skipped.  She gave me a discerning look (although I can tell you she wouldn’t know how to spell that word) and said in a very nasty tone, “Everyone is here for different reasons.  Sit down.  You’ll get called when you get called!”  It came with the subtitle: You over-privileged white girl!”

I sat back down in a huff and was forced to continue to watch a video made in the early 90’s about why the black population is AIDS-ridden.

A moment later, I saw a man ask her the same question.  This time, he was black.  And she took him, practically linked arm-in-arm, and said, “Boo, I’ll escort you down the hall.”

At that point, I left and made an appointment with my gyno.  Maybe I am an over-privileged white girl because I have insurance, but that nurse can go to hell, and so can the public clinics here.
