This is very common and normal.  I would suggest to them to use a *butterfly* to draw your blood from now on.  It is a little easier to stick small veins with those.  You could also hold your arm down for a while before they attempt the stick, and your veins will distend more and be easier to stick.  Also, don't let the same person stick you more than twice.  Insist on another person trying.  Finally, ;-) try to pay attention to where they are actually successful in drawing your blood, and point it out the next time you go.  Hope this helps!
