I hate this time of the year. No, not because everything is all xmas’d out a whole month before Christmas. No, not because The Angriest Pharmacist went and became a “ooh clinical pharmacist”. Its because this is the time of the year that everyone either wants 2 months worth for going to Mexico, or an early refill because “My baby daddy died this time 5 years ago and I need more vico-dans and somas for the pain”.
Lets first start with the 2 months going on vacation/mexico shit. There are 4 types of people who get to go on vacation for 2 to 3 months.
Now the rich don’t have a problem with plopping down $400 for 2 months because they know their insurance wont early fill + dispense an additional month on top of that. So that leaves you with the welfare peeps (who dont’ work), the old people (who are getting Medicaid benefits even though they are spending 2 months not here), and Teachers (who “deserve” 2 months off). Now I really do hate doing these early fills because these 3 groups have one thing in common: It should be free. Thats right, I’m poor/on a fixed income so I cant afford to pay $20 for a 60 day supply of lisinopril but I sure as shit can drop a few hundred to go spend 2 months driving/flying somewhere. What bugs me the most are the people on welfare (and thereby are not too old to work) who spend 2 months in Mexico. I’m sorry, but if you are going to suck on the state tit here, then you should have to fucking be here to get your check. I know that the state tit here is upper-class 19-year-old-nom-nom-nom compared to the old-shriveled-dry-hanging-to-knees Mexico state tit, so fucking decide which side of the big tall fence you are going to be on. A few weeks is fine in my book, but 2 fucking months? Teachers obviously know everything (and pay for nothing) and are first to tell you how to bill their insurance, and how wrong you are doing it.
Oh, and I didn’t even bring up how they want this 2 month supply RIGHT NOW because even though they knew about this for months they decide to stop by the pharmacy on their way out of town. Yeah, they learn for next year when you turn them away empty handed (or they have to pay/get reimbursed when they come back). Also didn’t mention that I’ve advanced a month supply only to have their welfare be terminated and them never come back. No good geed goes unpunished.
Now, onto the people who take dope to cope(tm). I realize that the holidays are a tough time for some. The loss of family or family not being there is hard. However there comes a point where that becomes an excuse to just get more pain pills. To be honest, I have heard all of the stories/bullshit over the years to fill up 10 websites from people who lie through their teeth to get their zone-out-candy early to either ride the holidays out via a chemically induced slump or to sell to afford xmas presents (or stuff their turkey with vicodin and soma). I realize that waiting in line for Walmart at 2am so you can trample someone to death requires a little somethin-somethin to get you going, but please dont bitch at me due to your lack of planning.
Yes, someone did get trampled to death at a Wal-Mart while opening for black friday. If thats any indication that we have forced-subsizided the breeding of the scummy end of the gene pool I dont know what is.
