Then it happens, most every time...
The push. It's just a little push. It's completely unnecessary. I can reach the prescription from where I'm standing. And no, this is NOT about being helpful by thinking you're getting the prescription closer to me to make it easier to pick up.
No, I've watched this for quite awhile now. I know what you're up to. This is about power and control. You think that little push puts you in control of the situation. You're trying to establish the dominant role in the filling procedure. You're da man, I be da dog dat fills your prescription. Hop to it, boy. Get it done.
I'm on to the little push and let me tell you, NO, this does not establish control. In fact, it just pisses me off. Suddenly a 10-20 minute wait time turns into 30-60 minutes. Why? Because I'm tired of people that have no respect for the pharmacy process. We're here to make sure YOU get the right medication, the right dose, and to make sure it is appropriate for you given your medication profile, age, gender, etc. We're the ones in control now, not you.
Bottom line: DON'T GET PUSHY with your pharmacist or pharmacy technician. Ever.
