How's your pharmacy patrons? More people on Medicaid ON YOUR TAX DOLLAR when you know they shouldn't really be on it? People taking advantage of the system (Like Miss Loosey), others complaining that their co-pay went up by a dollar, or people only filling the narc and leaving the antibiotic behind? How about unreasonable expectations that an Rx be filled within minutes even when you have ten waiters in front of them?
How about your pharmacy company? Low inventory, "organization" projects (which do not increase script count), fewer tech hours, no lunch breaks for the pharmacists, inventory nightmare ideas (such as Quake-N-Zap), strange requests and bizarre mandates which make little or no sense whatsoever? Emotional outbursts from managers, RPMs, your pharmacy director, over things that are indeed trivial matters? Do you feel like all your managers are bi-polar?
Yes, you're probably working for the same pharmacy chain I do. You scratch your head in wonder: Why? Why do they do these things?
I'm certain I've figured out why. It became crystal clear when I was reading the current article Leading Geneticist: Human Intelligence is Slowly Declining about how the intelligence of society today is dropping compared to our ancestors. As the article states, "Despite our advancements over the last tens or even hundreds of years, some ‘experts’ believe that humans are losing cognitive capabilities and becoming more emotionally unstable. One Stanford University researcher and geneticist, Dr. Gerald Crabtree, believes that our intellectual decline as a race has much to do with adverse genetic mutations."
Fluoride, Pesticides, and Processed Foods might have something to do with the genetic mutations. Or in the case of my company's managers, BAD HIRING PRACTICES. All I know is that there seems to be some really dumb patients out there and even dumber managers. It's making life at my pharmacy extremely annoying.
