We bring the FAST and laughs to pharmacy.

Let Freedom Ring (in my ears)

So I worked the holiday. July 4th that is. Independence Day for our global and alien readers. It wasn't that exciting to be honest. We get the usual fuck ups that forget their life-saving medications at home (the first thing that should be packed besides your Plan B) and/or their brain.
The worst part about the whole day was the overhead music. Did you know that 26 versions of "God Save America" exist? OMG it was horrendous!! I AM NOT SAYING I AM NOT PATRIOTIC FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO GO DIXIE CHICK ON ME--but listening to "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and the Marine anthem for 9 hours gave me some serious tinnitus. It was awful. I am still bruised from the event. I rocked in the back of the pharmacy for awhile and it helped but I will refuse to work the 4th next year! Ugh.
Gotta go to yoga!

You think you had it bad? I worked the overnight on the 4th. I like Sousa as much as the next person, but not at 1AM, especially when followed by the "country" version of God Bless America.

Or having to listen to Cher sing the national anthem, or Neil Diamond sing "they're coming to America"
