The Diary of Mrs. S

Been awhile....

Okay, here goes! With words of encouragement, my blogging now commences. I feel like I have just joined some secret club. I think I could get used to this. Give me some time and I will have some crazy pharmacy stories to tell. One in particular is from my mom, who is a pharmacist. Now, this conversation really took place.
Pt: My prescription said to take it with food. Is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich food?
Mom: Well, I hope so or else I have starved my kids all their life

Come on, really?!
I could go on forever with stories. But world, please do NOT call the pharmacy when your kid is choking on a piece of steak!!! Seriously, this parent wanted something to "dissolve" the piece of steak. Note: when asked can the child drink anything or breath, mom replies "just a little bit of water".
Here's another: "I think I accidentally gave my 8 year old child an Ambien." Dumbass!!! How do you "accidentally" give you child your own medication? Hey, now's the time to get in that freaky sex with your husband cuz your child is going to be passed out!
I love my job, I really do. But jeez, people are so dumb sometimes!!
I deal with insurance everyday. Insurance really is a great thing. But folks, when asked "have you changed insurance because what we have on file is rejecting the claim?" Response: "No, I have insurance! Oh, wait. I did get a new card in the mail. Do I need that?" YESSSS!!!!
One more.....Me: "Have you ever had any prescriptions filled at ___________(my place of employment)?
Pt: "Well, I'm not sure. I have had them filled at Kroger, Target, etc."
I want to scream..."This isn't Kroger, Target, etc!!!!!!" Really, I have to laugh every time. Yes, it has happened more than once.
Okay, so I didn't need much time to think of stories.

Words of wisdom for today: Don't be dumb!


  • YAY!! We were wondering if you were ever gonna post something!!
    My sis is a pharmacist for a hospital. She gets some dumb questions but not as dumb as her "retail" friends get!! lol
    Keep the stories coming sister!
    And Merry Christmas!
