We bring the FAST and laughs to pharmacy.

Now I've seen it all


For about a week, there has been a problem with our staff bathroom commode. So, when the plumbers came and started their work, we assumed that they would do their rooter thing and be gone in a few hours. When 5pm came around, the plumber was still mystified as to why they couldn't clear the drain, and why he was pulling pound after pound of gravel out of the line, even though the snake thing he was running didn't hit anything solid. Then they started investigating the parking lot and discovered a wet spot in the snow. So they dug down at that spot, and found what appeared to be a sewage filled sinkhole. After pumping out this 'sink hole', it became apparent that it was actually a TUNNEL being dug, running right under the pharmacy floor. As it turned out, the ambitious little thieves had gotten right up under the slab and had started chipping away at the underside before they broke the underground sewage line and flooded their little venture. I can only imagine them down there, lying on their backs, and suddenly get a facefull of sewage and a sudden, overwhelming urge to retreat. They must have been at it for months, seeing that the ground is still frozen, and the tunnel started under the dumpster slab 150 feet away.
I wonder if anyone has been treated for e-coli in the local area?

The old timer I used to work with told me that when he owned his pharmacy, the office space above it had some remodeling done to it (even though at the time, it didn't dawn on him that that office was up for rent). few days later, he opened the store to find empty shelves and a huge hole in the ceiling.

Its not like he was that smart... i think a few years later he got busted for having hidden cameras in the girls restroom....

Wow.

What a fabulous way to do that. Although since every pharmacy in America has cameras anyway, it seems like a silly way to do it - you're going to set off motion detectors either way, just break in and save everyone the work!

Hehe, I think y'all might have found yourself a new anti-theft device.

They were trying to break in "old school." It would have been easier to come in through the ceiling...

Holy shit! (pun intended) Are the drugs in your pharmacy even worth all of that effort?

Thats a break in FAIL right there. ... - "putting in a callout for for possible suspects that are covered in faecal matter and whatever else you flush....."
You could probably ask the cops if any one had been arrested in the last few months smelling worse than normal. Euuughhk.
