Once in a while I’ll do these retrospective posts after reading some of the old entries that I have made. Think of it as a “Final Thoughts” like Jerry Springer does (only this is FAR from my final thought). This isn’t a space filler so the site will have new content for you to read when I’m short on rants *ahem* but some deep thoughts from yours truly.
I have painted a colorful picture of Pharmacy. I have exposed all of the crap, the drama, and the daily pain that pharmacy schools pretend don’t exist or your pharmacist cant talk about while in the store. Despite how much of an asshole you think I am, or wonder how or why I’m even a pharmacist, you too have gotten a clear idea of what goes on behind that counter. You have realized that we are more than just pill counters and the ignorant bitches of doctors. Other pharmacists realize that they are not alone in the sea of stupidity with sparse slowly-sinking lifeboats littered about that we all tightly clench onto.
But what really makes doing this whole blogging thing worth while (along with keeping my sanity, god knows its not the ad revenue check – $1 menu here I come) is that some of you out there will look at your pharmacist with a new light. I hope its a positive light (and not think that we’re all a bunch of raging assholes). I hope you’ll be more understanding when things don’t go correctly or smoothly and once in a while give us a thanks (or a box of candy, we love candy. Booze also works well too).
I’ve been reading the Raging Server (http://www.ragingserver.com), and doing so has given me a whole new respect to Waiters/Waitresses/Waitripeople. They deal with the same shit that I deal with, so I tip better because of it. I wish other people in other professions would write what their day is /really/ like so we can get an understanding of how their jobs are similar to ours and would give us just a tiny bit more restraint before we blow up at them for doing something that we don’t like.
Just a thought. Fuck Perdue and Liberty Medical.
