A lady rolls up to the PICK UP window with two new prescriptions. She says, "I want you to 'fill up' these two prescriptions."
The tech asked her if she had been to our pharmacy before. "Yes, I've had you 'make prescriptions' for my son before."
So the tech types in the new prescriptions. The lady asks if we have any wet wipes. That's not something we keep in the pharmacy, but the tech offers to wet down a paper towel for her.
"My son lost a shoe. Now his foot is filthy. I want to clean him up."
But the lady is not happy with the tech's offer. So she sends her son down the baby isle to get some wet wipes. The tech and I go to work to 'fill up' the prescriptions in 3.5 minutes. That's what we do.
The lady rolls back up to the window, I counsel her on the new medications. She's on state-funded Medicaid and the cost is but a few dollars. She pays and rolls away again.
As I'm headed away from the register... what do I see? There, on the counter, an open box of baby wipes, the lid still open. Next to it are three used and very filthy wet wipes. They're almost black. The lady decided to open a box of wipes, use a few, and leave everything behind for us to clean up and explain to management.
By the way, she's in her mid twenties and from what I can tell has NO NEED to be using one of our electric shopping carts. And apparently wipes are free at our Goofmart Pharmacy. I could say this is yet another example of the entitlement attitude that is growing in our nation, but I don't want to ASSUME anything. Some websites say the Crazy RxMan assumes too much.
