Things I Wonder About...
If you're already taking Percocet 10/325 six times a day for breakthrough pain not covered by your Fentanyl patch, do you really need that script for Oxycodone 5 from your dentist?
In reference to above... why is the dentist prescribing it?
If I open at 9am and the tech doesn't show up until 10:30, shouldn't I be the one to get to take a lunch break FIRST?
Cookies are not really a substitute for a good breakfast, are they?
If I tell you we can't process and fill your prescription until tomorrow, why do you show up right at opening time the next day thinking it will be ready?
If you're on Medicaid (because of low income), how are you able to pay hundreds of dollars for medication (usually narcotics) when Medicaid won't pay for it?
In reference to above, why are you driving a Lexus?
Why would anyone get anything other than Teriyaki chicken wings?
Why do you tell me your name when I ask for your birth date?
Why do you tell me your birth date when I ask for the birth date of the person you're dropping off a prescription for?
What compelled you to think I want to talk to anyone on your cell phone?
Why can't you freeze lettuce?
If you have a 14 day supply left on your Oxycodone script and you're "going on vacation" for 7 days, why do you need an early refill?
In reference to above... why do prescribers not think and wonder the same thing?
Why do people say nothing has changed on their prescription insurance and then pull out a new card after we have tried the old one and failed?
If you "just left" the doctor's office and know we need time to fill your prescription, why do you come by and "check in" anyway?
Why do most foods have so much salt in them?
In reference to above... are you trying to kill me?
Why are you Goofmart managers so completely afraid to discuss alternative options with your managers at corporate?
In reference to above... what flavor of Koolaide did they give you?
Why do prescribers write 1 tablet twice day for 7 days, quantity sufficient... is the math just too hard there?
Why do kids not like tomatoes? They're delicious.
Why do cats let you pet them for awhile then they go nuts and try to bite you?
Why do some drug names get rejected and changed because they're "similar" to other drugs when there's a bunch of drugs already on the shelf with similar names now?
Why do you wait until the transaction is completed before you try to put in your club card information?
If "Price Club" was named after a guy named "Price," does that mean there's a guy out there named "Cost" ?
Why do people listen to Screamo music? That stuff is crap.
