Pharmacy Funny


Just wanted to share this little bit of crazy that my husband (the pharmacist) experienced at work this week.

As usual, he was swamped (can you say $4 prescriptions?) and there was a huge line of unhappy sick people. All hands were on deck but they were really, really busy and the line was moving slowly.

One lady, particularly unhappy with the long wait, got out her cell phone and made a call.

To the pharmacy.

Yeah, the one she was in line at.

Mmm-hmmn.

She not so politely asked the technician to stop counting the pills and answering the phone and expediting the prescriptions out the door and get on the register and ring people out because she had somewhere to be and couldn't stand in the freakin' line all evening.

Mmm-hmmn.

Guess who got to wait an additional fifteen minutes? (:
