The Pharmacy Chick

Flying the coup in retail

All I wanted to do was pee!

The only time I ever get real peace is when I go to the bathroom.  For a couple of precious moments I piddle in private and quiet. Sometimes I will just sit and enjoy the quiet for an extra minute.  One day I popped into the bathroom.  I was in the first stall and the third stall was occupied.  I piddled successfully and flushed. As I was about to exit, the lady in the 3rd stall spoke out “help me!”.

“Um, Do you need help standing up?” I asked.  It was an older lady who replied “No!, my hemorrhoid has fallen out, I need somebody to put it back in”.  I was taken aback. I wanted to walk out. NO WAY was I sticking my finger into her rumpus.  I said “ma’am, I will call an ambulance for you, I will call a family member for you, but I cannot do what you just asked me to do”.

The lady told me she would try to  “reach it” and I told her again, that I would call medical care for somebody for her but she declined.

And so I left.

Note to self:  Find an empty bathroom next time.

My father was once an EMT for a large casino. He had a woman in a bathroom that was screaming for help, when he arrived, she stated she was constipated and needed an enema. He informed her that, that is not an emergency and she could go down the street to Walgreens to pick one up and use it there LOL….another staff member recommended the fire hose out in the hall…she was not amused!

I worked in a branch pharmacy as a one off cover pharmacist and their toilet was blocked. We had to use the toilet in the pub next door and on one occasion I actually had someone trying to ask me about their medicines through the toilet door. I was so happy, they had no proof it was actually me so i was in the wonderful position of telling a patient to f##k off and leave me alone.
