There aren’t many people who I would call my “hero”. So this is really saying something when I write this.
Jim Plagakis, you are my hero. Seriously.
For those of you with your heads firmly implanted in your anus, Jim Plagakis is a writer for my favorite pharmacy-shitter magazine, Drug Topics. I’ve birthed many brown children while white-knuckle gripping the glossy colorful pages of Drug Topics. Jim works retail, and from what it sounds like, a fellow independant.
Jim recently wrote an article here where he.. well.. you have to go read it. Its a classic. Not only does it totally shut a doctor down in the name of common sense, but he gives Humana a well deserved backhand across the face. Damn Humana, why havent we all dropped it yet?
He has taken the essence of my anger here with retail pharmacy, distilled it down and removed all the swearing, cussing, sexual references, and other things that make my mother blush (yes, she does read this), and publish it in a nationwide magazine.
Jim, if you catch wind of this; I would love for you to guest write on here! Please Jim, write on angrypharmacist! You’re angry! People love you! You, like me, tell it how it is! We are the patron saints of retail pharmacy! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Yes, i’m plugging your site http://jimplagakis.com/ and being a total pharmacy fan-boy over this. If I’m ever in Texas, we need to go DRINKING (not drinking, but DRINKING).
Yes, this entry isn’t all that angry, but I’m prepping you all for my rant on entitlement. This one will insure me a firm E-Ticket in Hell for ragging on the elderly.
