A new problem is afoot in the Pharmacy...
TEXTING WHILE YOU'RE PAYING FOR YOUR PRESCRIPTION
It's happening more and more. People slide their card for payment, stop to finish a text or read a text, then go back to entering in a PIN or finishing the transaction.
Let's see... you weren't happy with the 15 minutes it took to fill your prescription... you know, we entered in all the information, billed your insurance, filled the med, checked it with your med profile, made sure we put the right medication in the bottle, made sure it's the proper dose and regimen, made sure all is right with world in just a few minutes... and finally you're ready to check out but you're delaying us to finish a stupid text message?
WTF is wrong with you? Seriously?! Your stupid text can't wait 30 seconds until you're finished with the transaction so I can get back to the other ten people in line? You complete self-centered piece of manure!
Honestly, we need to eliminate this cell phone rudeness. I propose that pharmacists be given special powers to grab cell phones and smash them without hesitation.
Really! I've had enough.
