Advice for Pharmacists and Technicians

You don't want to look, or at least you don't want to get caught looking, but they're there, they're real, and they're spectacular. Looking is dangerous because you'll get caught and you don't want to get caught.

Here's what you do:

1. Maintain eye contact. Look her straight in the eyes. Blink normally. Tell yourself it will all be over soon.

2. Speak normally. Don't let her know that anything is out of the ordinary. Pretend that there's nothing there.

3. Finish your conversation quickly. Ring up the prescription fast, collect payment, and wish her a good day. You can do this!

After the transaction is completed, immediately step to the back of the pharmacy and direct your mind to every day, ordinary things. It's over. You survived.
