I can deal with old people. I can deal with crackheads. I can deal with the senile, retarded, and the stupid.
Copays: They always /always/ bitch and question about their copay. It doesnt matter if they have been paying the same amount for the last 12 months, they will /always/ complain and make you look it up. Then, when they are proven to be wrong, they bitch! (see Accountability below).
Know It All: They think they know everything about everything. Doesn’t matter what drug it is, what class it is, they did research on the int0rweb and know 1000x more than you do. They will sit there and throw around big medical words like they are going out of style. All you can do is try to contain your laughter at this point as they make no sense what so ever.
Entitlement: They want trade name. Always. Insurance doesnt cover it? Then I guess its the pharmacists responsibility to make sure that it gets covered with zero copay because I demand trade name. If that doesn’t work they sit there and bitch about it. When the insurance does cover it, they bitch about the $50 copay for that $400 drug!
I cannot deal with retired school teachers. I’m sorry, it had to be said, I know i’m going to get hate mail up the ass, but sweeping stereotypes are my specialty.
You know, I’m sorry that you make crap wages, but just add that onto the list of things that aren’t my problem. You knew going into the job that the pay was crap. For acting so fucking smart you obviously didn’t do your homework to realize that you would be making jack and shit. Furthermore, if you say you teach “for the children” then you should be happy with with you are getting, because you’re doing it “for the children” and not “for the paycheck”
Accountability: They are never in the fault. They call in a wrong Rx number and you filled it, its your fault that you didn’t see that they received that refill 3 weeks ago and they make you RTS it. Even if you sit there, show the medication to them, they will find some reason to return it for something else. Guaranteed. Oh, did I mention that its your fault?
Just remember this. They teach America’s youth. I think thats enough said right there. Flame on, I just had to get this off of my chest.
