On a roll today. Had a list of shit I needed to bitch about! Onward!
She was ugly, very very ugly
She wanted the tube back.
Its perfectly normal for people to bring in their used pill bottles for refills. In fact, we prefer that better than the old “I need my regular medication” or “The one for my heart” bullshit (more on that at another time)..
However in more than one case, I have recieved a pill bottle that really made my asshole pucker. Actually, it wasnt a pill bottle but a cream container.
Now I dunno about you, but if I managed to cram a whole tube of Monistat 7 up my vagina (if I had one), and pulled it out (sucking off a few loose pubes in the process) I would NOT want this to be shown publically. Well, someone decided they did.
So I got presented (handled with a clothespin) a nasty ass tube of Monistat 7 one day. The stench alone warranted a hazmat team to quarantine the area. The tube itself had this greasy like overfilm that I was afraid (actually smart enough) not to instinctly grab. The Rx label looked like it had been soaking in lard (yanno how paper gets clear when exposed to grease). There were a few loose pubes hanging under the Rx Tape. I was afraid to ask what happened to the cap. Although I will say that the tube was 100% completely empty (like her vagina sucked the life out of it).
To make matters worse, I had to unbend the tube to read the name and Rx number (it was folded onto itself). Some people say that there is nothing meaner in life than Cat Shit. I had something to prove them wrong.
There are only 2 things that would make matters worse:
I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.
Heres the situation.
You have a medication ready for John Doe, so you yell out “Medication is ready for John Doe”. Someone comes up, signs for the medication, leaves, only to have you realize that the person picking up the medication didnt speak english, and isnt John Doe. For the rest of this rant, “John Doe” will be used because I dont want anyone to think im a bigot for using “Juan Valdez” or “Mai Hung Troung”.. whoops.
Now this isnt meant to be taken as a statement of bigotry or racism, just a statement of fact. The biggest problem seems to stem from anyone who’s first language is not english. We have asshats who will come to pick up medication no matter what name is called. We have to continously watch for them and tell them to sit the fuck down because they are NOT who we shouted out. It gets better. Due to a lack of understanding, they will just answer “yes” to any question to ask them. How can you fucking not know your own name? Even in 10 tounges I can undersand when someone tries to say my first and last name.. Oh wait, here in the United States we dont care if people are fucking idiots, we only care if they are poor and fucking idiots.
Do you have insurance? “Yes”
Are you Mystery Person X? “Yes”
Do you speak english? “Yes”
Are you an asshat? “Yes”
The whole situation is very frustrating, so because we need to protect idiots from themselves, we require an ID card at every pickup. I cant comprehend how mad I get when I shout out a name (to consult someone on some wierd medication) and I see two people walk up. Not only is this stupid and dangerous, but its really fucking stupid and dangerous!
People make me mad. 🙁
For a friday, work was pretty slow today. However there was one aspect of it that really made me angry.
Turns out this family immigrated here from Thailand last month. Now i’m not one bit against immigration (being eldest of a 3rd generation immigrant family), however I am against people just using the good american nature to help others without giving back.
Now this family waltz’s in here, and gives me their prescriptions. Oh, about 15 of them for their 15 children. Thats right, 15 children.. Come one come all to the land of milk and honey, where you and your 15 children can not work, and live for free! I know its in your right to have as many children as you want, but if you cannot afford 1 or 2, why have 15? Thats just stupid!
Now those 15 children, how many of them are going to have children in a year? Probably 2 or 3? Yes, they are all on the state system already.. Its like they landed here, and the first thing they recieved was their welfare cards and check.
Now you may be wondering why i’m bitter about this. Well my great-grandfather came here from overseas, and he had to work his ass off (including learning english) to make a living. There was no welfare system; you worked, or starved.. During the depression, he farmed so his family would have food to eat.. They didnt have free medications, free housing, and a steady check every month. He made something for himself because he had to survive.
If I immigrated to an eastern country, the very first thing on my list would be to learn the local language, and to find work; this is because I know damn well that nobody is going to give a flying fuck about some american immigrant over there…. I guess thats why America is different and so great, yet people have the balls to badmouth it while mooching off its generosity..
