It annoys me how some people send their kids in to pick up their medication. Not like grown-up teenage kids, but like 8 year olds while they sit in the comfort of their car parked right in front of the pharmacy.
Now, its quite often that we need to talk to you about your medication. Stuff gets changed, discontinued, added, etc. Do you really trust that your 8 year old will relay the message? Should we show your 8 year old how to test his/her blood sugar so he/she can show you how to do it? Will your daughter be intelligent enough to point out the huge highlighted note saying that your metformin dose has changed? Should I give your daughter the calendar so she can point to the date when your Soma is due? Will a size 12 boot fit nicely up your ass or should I use a size 13?
When you call us on the phone from the parking lot, and refuse to come in with the excuse of “Just show my kid”, I want to go take a dump on your windshield. I’m not going to trust YOUR life and MY career to your 8 year old daughter who has a hard enough time remembering what her last name is (because all the kids have different last names). I realize that 30′ is a long way to travel, and if it wasn’t for drive-through fast-food and A/C you would probably starve, however if I need to talk to you I expect for you to walk your fatsomyalgia ass over to the counter so I can SHOW you what I need to show you. If you still refuse thats fine, but so help me if you call in 30 min and expect me to walk you through using a test machine that I just showed your daughter how to use I’m going to piss in your next filling of Prometh with Codeine.
