Word for the Day: Exasperation

You go see your physician. You wait in the waiting room. Then you wait in the exam room. Finally the physician sees you. She writes you a new prescription and says she will send it to your pharmacy to be filled.

You leave the physician's office. You drive to the pharmacy. It took you maybe five or ten minutes because they're just around the corner. You go into the pharmacy and see they're quite busy. You wait to get up to the counter and you say:

"I just left my doctor's office. She was sending over a new prescription. Is it ready?"

Your pharmacist and the technician then look like this:

Hmmm... I wonder why.
