On a more lighter side of things, I have noticed a certain phenonemom in my years and years at the pharmacy. Its called, the “Tech Call”. Heres how it goes:
You’re working along after getting a whole 2 min to eat lunch. Obviously you did not have time to chew or even enjoy your food. Compound this with talking all day and swallowing air. You know where this is going, you need to pass some gas.
Thats right, fart. The one joke that never gets old. Nothing is funnier than watching an old man bend over for that bottle of mag-citrate only to rip the loudest fart in the store. You only hope that he didnt shit his pants and have it run down his legs for you to clean up.
Of course while you’re talking with a patient you cant just rip one right there, so you hold it in, and it grows, and grows. Sooner or later it feels like your colon is going to explode and you run the risk of letting it go and having a bit extra come out. The infamous ‘shart’ (which is what they should of named Xenical). So you wait for the opportune time to let loose the beast that is trying to claw its way out. You wait until there is nobody around, spread your legs really fart apart so it doesnt make much noise, and release………. As you feel your bowels deflate….. YOUR TECH WALKS RIGHT BEHIND YOU AND GETS BOTH BARRELS OF POO-POO BUTT DEATH RIGHT IN THE FACE.
Never fails. Its like farting calls your tech/clerk/coworker to walk right behind you at that moment. Its like a dog whisle! Your ass is sending out a supersonic call that says “Hey Tech! Walk across the store and come right behind me for no reason!”
Now a good tech will stifle the whole “oh god” as he/she cuts a swath right through the gaseous death that is hovering right behind you, but a fellow pharmacist coworker usually isn’t that kind. They will say “HOLY SHIT WHAT DIED IN YOUR ASS.” Of course you can do nothing, because you are up to your armpits in work, so you must sit there, hold your breath, and hope it dissapates quickly. All while this is happening the entire store manages to walk right behind you and give you a chuckle or comment about how nasty the fart you just ripped is.
Never fails I tell you, never fails.
