I hate to RTS (Return To Stock) medication. Plain and simple. Its just a fact that I really dont like to fill something, then have to undo my work because you’re an idiot and didn’t want it (yet called it in to be refilled). Yes, surprisingly enough it does cost the store money to fill your Rx even if you don’t pick it up.
If your child gets an antibiotic, and I ask you “Can he/she take a pill?” while showing you (and your child) what it looks like, and you both say “yes”; I don’t want you to return said prescription 30 min later and want liquid. When I warn you that its a lot of liquid (because your child is a pussy overweight 16 year old who can swallow mcdonalds but not an amoxicillin capsule) and it tastes bad, I really do mean it. The stuff tastes like shit, and its a lot easier to take 1 tablet than 2 teaspoons three to 4 times a day. I told you this straight out.
Then you wonder why I go postal when you come BACK the next day and want tablets again because your douche of a child doesn’t like the taste/quanity of the liquid THAT I WARNED YOU ABOUT THE PREVIOUS DAY! If I made it Big Mac flavored, then your child would drink the whole damn bottle!
Oh, this gets even better.
Then you have the BALLS to get angry at me because I charged you ANOTHER copay. I’m sorry, but I cant suddenly remove the water out of that amoxicillin suspension. Its yours to keep as a reminder of not-listening to what I’m saying.
I’m sorry if you’re just not a good listener. Obviously you didn’t listen when the whole topic of ‘condoms’ or ‘contraception’ came up while you were 13 years old. You did however listen to that deadbeat baby-daddy of yours when he said that he ‘loved you’ and ‘raise this child together’. I don’t care about your pity party, I only care that I lost all the money I made out of this Rx by redoing it yet again.
Yes, I did go there and I am going to hell.
Oh, and to our other customers who don’t listen:
When you call in a refill on your medication and are 3 weeks early; then have the balls to argue with me on the phone and swear up and down that you didn’t receive them (even though you signed for them). When you find them at home, just shut your mouth, and eat the cost of the early refill. Don’t come waltzing back in and demand a refund on the extra fill that I did for you.
