You said before that he didn't look at the doorknob after he got stuck,do you think it's possible that the knob was broken/cracked and someone just put some tape over it to keep from getting cut?Hope it was just that simple,but I know in this world any kind of crazy thing can and will happen.

It's an OSHA reg and often state board reg that health care providers use safety products. Sooooooooo DO NOT USE NON SAFETY NEEDLES!

Remorseful? To paraphrase from 'The Princess Bride': I do not think that word means what you think it means.

Doubt it because it was made out of metal!

He checked back after a week and the tape was still there so I'm guessing either no one has noticed it or his mind is playing tricks with him :uhoh3:

If he checked back, THEN WHY DIDN'T HE SAY SOMETHING TO THE CLINIC STAFF??????

This just sounds fishy to me.....something happened, he's freaked out about it (which I understand) but then he does absolutely nothing. That I don't understand.

Not much left to do I guess since it already happened...

I think it's the act that he's so unsure and thus, doesn't want to make a big deal about it.

So ... to recap ...

Your friend experienced pain while handling a doorknob in a clinic. Through some thought process, he/she arrives at the conclusion that the pain was caused by a stick from a needle somehow attached to the door/knob, possibly intentionally, by another patient, possibly to cause harm to other patients.

He/she visits the same clinic again, finds the unknown sharp object still in place on the same door, but does not alert any clinic staff ... as one might, say, alert the staff in a store or restaurant that a restroom was out of soap or paper towels or had a plumbing situation which needed attention.

As was posted in another thread today ... I can't believe I'll never get back the 5 minutes I spent reading this thread ...

I'm not sure what to think about this. The OP has only had two threads and they have both been about this one single incident.

It would seem that if the "friend" were truly worried, they would have done something about this except to "think" it was a needle based on the fact that there was tape around a handle, they felt something sharp poke them, and when they went back a week later the tape was still there.

It just sounds like this is a situation that may or may not have happened and the OP is trying to figure out how to pull the wool over someone's eyes.

folks, i ask that everyone be respectful and mindful of people's different life experiences.

i would respectfully ask everyone to avoid accusations of trolling. report posts that violate the terms of service, and ignore those you don't have a constructive response for. if someone is trolling, responding similarly is just chumming the waters.
