This is for the ladies out there.
Please listen to me. I'm a pharmacist but I'm also a man, and because I'm a man I understand men. Guess what? We men don't listen to you most of the time unless you're saying "dinner's ready" or "I'm in the mood for love" or something involving sports, sex, or food. This is not a character flaw. It's just the way we're designed. We hunt, eat, fix things, and procreate. That's what we do. Since we don't really hunt meat anymore, we solve that need with sports and political games at work. Unless you've been living on an island with only females, you know this too. It is what it is. Deal with it.
You can deal with it by listening to this sound advice: WHEN you send your husband down to the pharmacy to get you something, BE as SPECIFIC as POSSIBLE. Don't send him for a "nasal decongestant." TELL HIM which one you want. Text it to him or write it down on a piece of paper and pin it to his shirt. Trust me on this. I've been on the pharmacy side of this too long now and I'm here to help you. Help me help you to get what you want by following this advice.
I know you women well enough to know that if you've sent your man down to the pharmacy to get you Zyrtec that I won't send him home with the store brand saving you $10. I know not to do that. I know you won't be happy and you can trust that I will make sure your husband gets exactly what you asked for, but you have to help a little by being extremely specific. If you want Zyrtec-D, make sure you say the D part or he's going to show up with Zyrtec and you're going to be unhappy and withhold sports, sex, or food. And as a guy myself it's up to me to help my brothers out there so I'm telling you, BE SPECIFIC.
Ok, thanks. Bye.
