Semi related story time! I have a problem with people not screwing the lids on things before sending them to us. Pee that smells like raw fish that’s been left in the sun for a few days and leaking all over things is one thing (and apparently a daily thing). But when I pull out a bio bag where the bloody specimen is no longer in its leak-proof container because someone didn’t screw the lid on right (such as today), that is a problem.
And when the contents happen to be Products of Conception, AKA someone’s spontaneous abortion, AKA something we can never recollect, that is unacceptable.
