I’m going to go off on my own little banter about the same stupidity that has recently plagued The *Angriest* (because the *’s make it not like my site) Pharmacist.
Covering OTC items isn’t usually a problem until the kid comes back for the 5th time in a month with the SAME prescription for the SAME OTC products. No antibiotics, no actual Rx legend stuff, just purely APAP and some Dimatapp DM. Oh, its not just one child either, its all of the children that dropped out of this 29 year old with a clown car for a vagina.
Not only are we paying for these OTC items that the children probably don’t need, but for the doctors visit that the children probably didn’t need because they were just there 2 weeks ago for the same thing! Fuck taking the child to the doctor and just spend the $3 for some OTC tylenol syrup and treat it yourself! Isn’t your time worth mon-… oh, I forgot, these people don’t work, so they have TIME to sit in the ER for 9 hours while their children tear all the magazines apart just to be written an Rx for some Motrin suspension. Silly me. You would think that after the 4th child you would know how to treat any sort of ailment that the other 3 kids have gotten in their childhood and wouldn’t need to see a doct-… oh, sorry, implication of common sense and good judgment.. Sorry, silly me again.
I think that myself, the (* x Avogadro number) Angriest (* x Avogadro number) pharmacist (wait wait, how many *’s are in 1 mole of Angriest Pharmacist? 6.022×10^24! Come on TAestP, you laughed, its clever), the DrugNazi, and all of the other pharmacists out there who just pound their heads on the table have problems coping with the sheer blatant rampant ignorance of the general public. What makes it worse, is that they thrive on being ignorant and unable to take care of themselves and will do everything in their power to stay that way.
What makes this even more humorous is that my boss reads this website, and he knows that I write it, and he probably thinks that I’m the most disgruntled and unhappy employee on the face of the planet. Eh, he’s wrong.
