The dreaded old patient

I’ve seen a lot of things come through my workplace.  Crackheads, addicts, people with guns, seekers, screaming children, teenage mothers, people who should be in a care home rather than on the street, etc. However you know what really makes my asshole pucker when I see them walk through the glass doors? You know what […]

An addicts point of view – ie: A lesson in personal responsibility (lack thereof)

Hi TAP I know I have called you an ass hole and a dick, but… well… there is a topic I have never seen your opinion on. Thats a great way to start an email. “I want your opinion on something, and I’ve called you names before.” Hm… I guess I already know what my […]

DEA is useful as tits on a boar

I hope the DEA is reading this, because they are not only a burden, but a tax drain on pharmacies and on the public in general.  Thats right DEA, I’m talking to you.  Lets show the whole world why you are as useful as tits on a boar. In California, every pharmacy must transmit weekly […]

The Pharmacy Union Address

Take a step back for a second and look at retail life. We went to school to learn about drugs, the human body, a little bit about diagnosing stuff, interactions, CYP450, Kreb’s Cycle, Chemistry, Biology, Kinetics, blah blah blah.  Most of us spend 3 to 4 years in classes, then went out on rotations for […]

Loaded lancet devices for everyone!

When people bring in their blood glucose monitor to me for help (which I don’t mind really, as long as it was filled here and not Liberty Medical (fuck you)) there are a few things that are consistent as the sun rising in the morning and white bread/Velveeta cheese at a redneck BBQ. The machine, […]

ATAP: Medication changes and how I deal with them

I received this question from a doctor who frequents the site: I have a question regarding changes in medication. I am a physician. The way I usually handle it is that I tell the patient the new dose and then write a prescription to reflect that dose. I then tell them that they’ll have to […]

Telling someone they are stupid

Its a fine, (if not lost) art to get the point across to a patient that they are too stupid to manage their medication without sounding like an asshole.  Unfortunately this skill is not taught in school (but really should).  We all know the types of patients that really have no clue what they are […]

Political correctness, terminology, and being retarded

I recieved a comment recently from a fan (although I’m not sure if they will still be one after they read this) that took exception to my use of the word “retard” to describe some of the people I deal with on a daily basis. Short Answer: Deal with it, I’m using retard.  Sorry that […]

Oh you silly internet people!

For all of you out there who thought that my posts yesterday was an April fools joke, guess again.  Its real. Just kidding. I must say, all of this was TAestP’s idea.  We started planning this close to a month ago.  However the part about me getting him fired was 100% pure asshole me. However […]

Sore loser. Boo Hoo.

Look at the comment I got to my victory post: I hope your happy. You’ve ruined my life — you lifeless, soulless, waste of flesh. I just received a call from my District Manager – today was my last day. The found cached copies of my site on Google even though I completely took it […]
