A few weeks ago I got into a bit of a Twitter snarl with another Twitter enthusiast. It seems she took issue with my daily posting of one-line quips with the hashtag #WhyYourPharmacistHatesYou. Her basic message to me was: "I've been in social work for 33 years. You should never say you hate anyone. Social media should only be used for positive messages. I love all my patients." In fact, she further made it seem like expressing anything but the bubbling over of fairies and roses suggests that I'm not a true healthcare worker. I was tempted to tweet "Mind your own business lady" but then I thought about it... she's right.
So that's it. THIS WILL BE MY LAST BLOG POST. Obviously if social media was only meant to express harmony and happiness, according to her (being the expert on health care), then I'll need to stop this blog right away.
Sarcasm and freedom of speech will not be tolerated in the new world order of the 1984 doublespeak. I intend to check myself in to a rehabilitation camp right away so that I may be reprogrammed via electrode shock therapy to express only joy and peace in my writings.
Your Crazy RxMan will no longer be crazy, mean, sarcastic, or cynical. No more posting disappointing and/or aggravating stories about how pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are treated like minions by management, prescribers, and patients. Oh no... I'll be Happy RxMan and will only post happy fun Tweets and Facebook posts of kittens playing with yarn balls and patients getting anything they want, whenever they want, because it just wouldn't be right to deny anyone anything in the new world order. I might be so happy that in my spare time I'll only have time to chase butterflies and puppies. We'll have to see.
Effective immediately: Goodbye cynical, sarcastic Crazy RxMan. Hello Happy Fun RxMan. All will be right with the world.
