I donated blood and they told me I was O+. But I knew I was an O because both my parents are O. I live in the US.

I still find it really surprising that some people don't know their blood type and are wondering about it O_O we tested it in school but we all knew it way before that...isnt it written in some health booklet?? what if you really need blood injection really fast and doctors dont know it? what do they do o_O ?

I live America and I'm O negative. I found out when I stabbed in an attempted mugging. I lost a lot of blood and needed a transfusion. If not for that I probably still wouldn't know what my blood type was.

A patient's own memory or some other booklet would never be relied upon for blood typing as mismatches of ABO typing can have serious consequences, including fatality. A transfusion recipient will be specifically typed and then crossmatched with donor units prior to any transfusion, and this can actually be done relatively rapidly in most cases. For extreme exceptions (e.g. massive trauma where there really is no time even to type and crossmatch blood), a hospital may release O-negative units (so-called "universal donor") on an emergency release basis while a specimen from the patient is being typed and crossed in the usual way. One balances a risk of possible usually delayed transfusion reactions due to minor blood type mismatches (there are many other blood antigens besides ABO and Rh) with that of possibly losing the patient if no blood is given right then.

I'm B+. I found out when I was in the USMC. My dad is O- and my mom is B+ but when I got my first set of dog tags it said I had A- which briefly scared me but turned out to be a mistype.
