We bring the FAST and laughs to pharmacy.
Monday, March 8, 2010
Greetings from up north!
I'm Dromedary (Dairy) Queen 'cause I bust my humps in my Pharmacy. I've been a tech for over 3 years at two different pharmacy chains and have already tired of some of the madness that is becoming a regular occurrence in my world. Case in point - we do get scripts from vets for animals once in a while, but this one was truly memorable. Guy comes to the window and hands me a script for his kitty. I ask him his cat's name, and he gives it to me. Then he hands me his insurance card and says "I want to bill this to my insurance." I look at the card - ok sir, you have the same name as your cat, how interesting. Being fresh out of college, I tell my boss the situation. He rolls his eyes, and walks me thru this learning exercise of billing insurance for humans only. What a shocker - it's not covered. I go back to the counter and say with a straight face: " So apparently your insurance company does not consider your cat to be a dependent. That's $$$$ today, sir." His eyes shoot daggers at me as I smile and hand him his card back and wish him a pleasant evening. The boss and I laughed our heads off once he was out of sight.
