The Pharmacy Chick

Flying the coup in retail

Best one-liner of the day.

I have a tech whose sense of humor rivals my own.  We are cut from the same piece of cloth.  This is in stark contrast with my other tech who has NO sense of humor.  I also have an intern who is sweet, innocent and (as of yet) uncorrupted by the idiocy of pharmacy.

Yesterday I had filled a prescription for a gentleman for Viagra.  On his label it was indicated that he preferred NON safety caps.  Without realizing it, I had used a standard safety cap and had set the rx aside to be bagged and placed on the shelf.  My intern noticed my cap error and said to nobody in particular: “How come this prescription for Viagra has a safety cap on it??” 

To which my Tech extraordinare replied (without batting an eye)  “Because its not his HANDS that have the problem!”

I  bent over in laughter. 

Ba Da Boom…She will be here all week folks..

This reminds of back in the day when I worked retail, my grandmother’s boyfriend would come in for his yohambine every month, then Viagra came out, the old guy was getting 30 a month, and always came in a week or so early for the refill, I never could figure out if I should be outraged, ashamed, embarrassed or jealous. It made me sad to know that my 75 year old grandmother was getting so much action while I …., well lets just say at that point in my life, 30 tablets would have lasted significantly longer than 30 days.
