Could've done without hearing that

In the last couple of weeks I've heard some interesting things from customers at my pharmacy.

-A man who was upset that I didn't do what he asked me to do (because it is against the law) said to my face, "What are you, deaf?"

-A woman on the phone was angry that I wouldn't recommend anything but talking to her doctor for her bleeding hemorrhoids.

-This same woman proceeded to tell my technician that she once had a yeast infection for several years that wouldn't go away, so she eventually started douching with bleach water. Hmm, wonder why you have bleeding hemorrhoids . . .

-Another woman was upset about us not price-matching a mail order pharmacy and not allowing her to return her prescriptions. She exclaimed, "I just feel like I have been screwed by Walmart!"

-A guy (or, more appropriately, a dude) who didn't have a prescription or anything related to the pharmacy wanted us to ring up his items, which included produce. We explained that we don't have a scale, so we can't ring up produce. He insisted that the cucumbers were priced per item and not per pound, so we should be able to ring them up. We explained that we don't have item codes for produce, so even if it doesn't have to be weighed, we can't ring it up unless it has a bar code on it. He was really miffed because all of the lines at the front of the store were really long, and he only had a few items. He asked, "Can't you just call a cashier over here to do it?" Do you mean the cashiers who are trying to help the really long lines at the front of the store? Right, I'll just page one of them right now.

-A man was mad about the price of his wife's medication. He asked the cashier if there was a pharmacist he could talk to. She said, "Yes, she's right over there." He said, "Well I don't want to talk to her. Never mind."

On the lighter side of things, I had a woman tell me last night that I have a beautiful belly. :) I'm just glad that there are nice people out there and that the majority of people aren't this crazy or rude.

Happy Easter!

This year we only painted one Easter Egg.

I'm not sure why this seemed like so much fun to me, but once I got the idea in my head, I just KNEW we had to paint my belly like an Easter Egg!

And, of course, some bunny ears to top it all off. Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
