Unnecessary Asshole!

A lady peers into the window holding an OTC medication. She looks at the tech and says "I know he doesn't know the answer but this box says compare to Tylenol on it so is it the same as the Tylenol infant drops?" I told her it was our store brand of the Tylenol infant drops and she walked away.

The tech was appalled at the rudeness of the lady and was lamenting upon how he was having a hard time dealing with the rudeness of society and unsure of staying in the pharmacy for the rest of his life. Even funnier was the fact that she had flunked out of the EMT program they were both in so of course she wouldn't know crap about medication.

Everyone in the pharmacy got into the discussion of how many people are rude and just don't realize it because they tragically have no moral compass or respect for other humans. They probably kick puppies for fun. Unfortunately these are the people we and everyone who works retail have to deal with every day. These are the people who travel to other countries and give Americans a bad name then get us bombed by radical terrorist groups.

Some people are so f*cking rude!

Yes. And they breed.

Unnecessary rudeness: definitely getting worse.

A friend and I started a blog about it, figuring we could at least laugh about the more outrageous incidents. If you'd like to contribute to it, I'm sure you'd have some great stories to add! It's called How Rude Is That?

I hear you, bro.

Take a gander at http://www.customerssuck.com/board/index.php and you'll see that you're not the only one ranting about stuff like this. I think I'm the only pharmacist posting there, but there are at least three techs.

I get tired of poor treatment by patients who think techs are stupid. Don't they know we went through school and a difficult process to certify? It's not that we don't know the answer(usually), it's that by law weren't not allowed to give the patient the answer.

Your blog is great! Thanks for the laughs.
