An Xmas poem that beats the shit out of mine

This is taken from Apothecary Tales.  Its too well written and too funny to have me just skip over it: Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house All the crackheads were stirring, much like a crackhead mouse The Promethazine poured, from the bottle with care In hopes that St. Codeine, would bring plenty […]

The Angry Pharmacist Socalized Health Plan Solution

Here is my outline as to what could be the perfect socalized will-fail-less government subsidized medicine plan.  Since obviously this is going to be passed riding on the coattails of the H1N1 fear and panic machine, I could at least throw in my $0.02 as to how this is to be laid out. Now before […]

The Joys of Social Workers

In this world, there are two types of social workers: The ones you never see or hear about.  The one that the patient calls and they get the shit done fast.  The only time you actually speak with them is a 5 second phone call with an ID/Group/etc number and a “did it work?”.  Pharmacists […]

New backend, new layout, new beginning.

Many of you have emailed me asking why I have been so quiet the past month or so.  Well, now you know. Welcome to the new Angry Pharmacist site!  Not having threaded comments (meaning you can reply to a comment, and your reply appears under theirs) really bugged me, and Moveable Type just wasn’t cutting […]

Site upgrades! Fun for everyone!

See, not only does the pharmacy piss me off, but computers piss me off as well. All I tried to do was to upgrade the software that this system runs on.  You know, new version of Movable Type, tons of new features, shiny-shiny-oo-oo! Yeah, I got it in the ass, big time. If you received […]

Patients who kill your Patience

Retail pharmacy (or working with the public) demands one huge element that most students lack.  They don’t teach you this in school (although they should) nor do they even mention this anywhere in any textbook.  Its called patience, and as the day wears on my patience dwindles and dwindles. However some of my patients act […]

A retrospective look at 3 years, 200+ entries, and a whole lot of booze & tears

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 […]

Arg, funny entry went poof.

Alright.  I tried to lighten things up a bit by posting a funny entry that I did over a year ago but never made public.  Unfortunately I got the YEAR wrong when I set the date upon which to publish it.  Its visible, just back with entries dated around the end of 1/2007.  Go team […]

Ads, bills, the usual

One of the problems with writing entries that piss off a big portion of the online community is that you draw a ton of people to your site.  That little diabetic stint along with pissing off most of the chain pharmacists pushed my web hosting bill through the roof.  Yeah, I’m a pharmacist.  Yeah, I […]

Site Changes, Announcements, etc

Hi Pharmacists/Doctors/Students/General Public As you can see, the site has changed a bit to add some new features. You can actually create an account/login to the site for commenting.  Doing so will (or should) make your comments appear automatically (vs me having to approve them).  If you are a frequent commenter, this should make your […]
