An elderly man steps up to the pharmacy counter.
Man: “I need some Sudafed.”
Me: “Flynn, get the man some Sudafed.”
Flynn grabs a box.
Man: “I need to sleep and this is just the thing.”
Flynn: “This will keep you awake.”
Man: “My nose is stuffed up and I can’t sleep. I need Sudafed. What’s the pharmacist think?”
Me: “This will help the stuffy nose so you can breathe but it keeps most people wide awake.”
Man, now agitated: “I need to sleep! What can I take to sleep?!”
Me: “Get some Benadryl. It will help your stuffy nose and it causes sleepiness.”
Man: “I have that at home! I don’t want that!”
Me: “Flynn, get the man what he wants. Get him some Sudafed.”
Man, now angry: “I’ve NEVER been treated by a pharmacist like this!”
Man storms off.
