"Offhand treatment at Blood donor service"

I've just returned from donating my 25 "pint" of blood! Like many people I expect it's not my favourite thing to do but I trot along and for my 24 previous donations I have generally been well treated.
Now I don't expect the staff to fuss over everyone they see who has made 25 donations but I feel quietly proud of myself. However, I don't expect to have the "thank you" card and pin chucked down on the table in front of me in quite an offhand way!
There must have been something in the air that night because the donor assistant attending to me was to say the least, uncommunicative and completely bored looking. I usually have a fine chat with staff.
It took a while for me to donate, wrong arm, and boy did I feel that I was putting this member of staff out, and had to endure much jiggling around with the needle and collection bag. Yeuch!
Thank heavens for the tea and a Taxi!
Of course we all have off days but hey, you guys get paid to do this, I'm doing it on my own time and it's my blood! I'm giving you feedback here because I couldn't see anywhere on your website to do that.
