Same here.  Some are so good that sometimes I really can't tell they're doing anything.  I had blood taken at the Health Dept once and it was horrible.  I have nice, big, juicy veins and this lady just jabbed that needle in my arm.  It made a pop and felt like she hit something (a nerve?) in there.  I almost hit at her as a reaction/ reflex 'cause it hurt like hell.  My partner was there and was really surprised how she did that.  A large part of my arm was bruised from that lady.
