Ah, Le Douche. I knew I would not survive a work week without an infestation of you.
Setting: McDruggie's late Sunday evening.
And scene: You walk up to the counter, a gallon of milk and two Nestle chocolate milks in hand.
Pharmacist: Are you picking up or dropping off?
Le Douche: I am picking up for >>>>my name>>>>.
Pharmacist: We need refills from your doctor because there are none left in your records.
Le Douche: Why isn't my prescription ready? They told me it would be ready when I called it in an hour ago! Why didn't anyone tell me it needed refills?
Pharmacist: I am sorry but there are no refills in your records. Unfortunately I cannot give you some tablets to hold you over because Ambien is a controlled substance. I will call your doctor in the morning.
Pharmacist Brain: Is this guy f***ing kidding! He read the number off the bottle that said "NO Refills, doctor authorization required" when he called it in to the technician standing next to me that took the call. What a f***ing moron!
Le Douche storms off. Pharmacist asks Technician if she will return the abandoned milk products to the refrigerator case.
Technician: I will give him a few minutes to shop.
Pharmacist: He is not coming baaack.
Three minutes later Le Douche is nowhere to be found.
Pharmacist: It is cute that you thought he was coming back. Please return the abandoned milk product to the refrigerator case. Thanks!
Technician: I can't believe he did that.
Unfortunately things like this do happen in the real world. Some people believe that refills happen like loaves and fishes (biblical reference if you didn't get the joke). These same people also believe that "drama" is going to "hurt" the people working in a pharmacy, when really, all it does is leave us scratching our heads and wondering how natural selection has failed to deselect you.
