bad ob/gyn, too

The post about the bad ob/gyn reminded me of a similar experience that I had. When I was 16, I went to Planned Parenthood for birth control. I was also told that they would have to do a pregnancy test prior to giving me birth control. I knew at the time that I wasn't pregnant (the boyfriend and I had been careful about using condoms) but ofcourse, there is always a chance. I was told they would call me back the following day to give me the results on the phone.

Ok, later in the evening the next day, I got a phone call from a lady from PP. She told me they had the results of the pregnancy test.

Her: "What would you do if you found out you were pregnant?"
Me: "Oh my god. I'm pregnant?" (on the verge of a heart attack)
Her: "No, but I wanted to show you that you are not prepared to have a child so you need to be more careful"

I hung up without saying anything but I felt completely violated. She must have missed the memo that I never thought I was pregnant but I was told to take the pregnancy test in order to get birth control. Regardless, that's still not right. If I had been a little more older and wiser, I definitely would've called back and complained to a superior.
