Have you ever wondered what working in a pharmacy is like? My coworkers introduced me to a video on YouTube which provides a good approximation. Watch this video, and feel my pain:
Right now you’re probably laughing at how absurd that video is, but I’m laughing at how true-to-life it is. I’ve actually heard approximately 90% of the comments the “customer” made.
I once had a customer ask why his cream prescription would take 15 minutes. “All you have to do is slap a label on a tube.”
Today a customer asked how long it would take to get her prescription ready. When I told her five minutes, she heaved a big sigh and said she’d just come back later.
As I counted down the till at 9 pm tonight, a customer asked to have prescriptions refilled. When the pharmacist agreed to do it, she said, “I’ll come back for them later.” No, ma’am. No you won’t.
The first time I watched the above video I laughed so hard I cried. I’ve watched it six times since and it hasn’t gotten old yet.
Ten hour shift tomorrow. Will I make it through the day without shanking a customer? Only one way to find out!
