I understand your confusion and hence this question.
The blood drawing skill is not the same for every phlebotomist.
It sounds these girls are relatively inexperienced.
Hence, they can miss the vein or puncture the vein inadvertently.
Some people have less prominent superficial vein system and hence can make the blood draw difficult.
Only an experienced phlebotomist can draw blood with some maneuvers.
This particular incidence does not suggest any vein disease or anything like that.
Do not worry.
