Yes, Mark, there's always one who you'll never forget and with which nothing works. I had one who screamed "Bleep, bleep you" instead of "hut, hut, hoo" and yelled "get your hand out of my bleep" when the midwife tried to examine her. (said the real TOS violating words, though and for the entire shift). I've been kicked, too and scratched. They all apologize after, but it sure does make for a nasty day!
As for redheads (always wanted red hair) I have read nothing in the literature of them having a lower pain tolerance. I have seen that because of the melanin they have (can't remember if it's more or less than other people) they are more prone to bleeding so we always kept a more watchful eye for pphemmorhage.
