When you go out to a restaurant and you take a shot before your meal, what do you do with the needle? I take my shot right at the table, and I recap the needle and put it in my purse. I thought that's what everyone did, but apparently not. I waitress at a restaurant and we've been having issues with people leaving their needles on the table when they leave. Even though I myself am a T1 I don't want to handle someone elses needles, even capped. I don't think all pen users realize that this is a serious hazard. If at home you are supposed to dispose of your needles in a red hazards bin, why would you ever think it is okay to leave them on a table for an unsuspecting bus boy? When I eat at work, I am not even allowed to throw my needles in the trash. My boss is very strict on this matter. We've also had people complain when seeing them in the trash cans in our restrooms. What do you do with your needles when you give yourself a shot somewhere other than home?
