Well, less of a pain in the *ss than having it stuck there!    ;>)       I use the exterior of the upper arm and try to find a "more fleshy" area.  Large boluses are a bit more 
noticeable, but otherwise I find it very comfortable.  Also, I like the speed that it shows in entering your system, plus it is very convenient being under a short shirt sleeve.  If 
you use your arms a great deal it might make the uptake too quick though.
