Pharmacy/Convenient Store Inconvenient

PHARMACY CONVENIENT STORE INCONVENIENCE

     Still to this day I can not understand the complexity of a pharmacy filling a script. You go there to drop of a script and they ask if you are going to wait for it. Regardless, you are told the amount of time it will take them to fill it.{{This is not a major production here!}} they grab the main bottle and take out the amount needed and place them in your prescription bottle. Oh I almost forgot they also have to put some stickers on it. Now, with all the work you see needed to transfer pills from one bottle to the next we should expect this to require………. at least 3-5min…..lol OK, sure…. This takes 2-3 hours or more.

After you have put in the script you are told a ridiculous time needed for them to fill it. Ive been told over 2-3 hours in some situations (I took care of that) lol. This was resolved through my usual logical approach in which of course doesn’t work in this situation. They were able to find immunity to my logical way of resolving this. Than I tried the other more direct approach. This includes questioning and requiring a reasonable excuse. I would even accept them saying they were just lazy and moving slow.

It’s not a matter of how busy they are (in most cases they are very). The problem I have is them filling scripts for people that aren’t even there or coming in. The mass prescription production line to fill that wall with all those bagged and ready to go scripts you see in alphabetical order bins….. There is no urgency on those prescriptions. They are automatic refills in advance to be ready when that person comes in. I’m right here, in person, so put the maintenance medication production down and take 2-3MINUTES and help out the person who is actually there.

HERE IS A THOUGHT! MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE A DR. RIGHT A SCRIPT FOR SOME KIND OF PSYCHOTIC MEDICATION. I’M SURE THEY WOULD HURRY THAT ALONG NOT WANTING TO PISS OFF THAT PERSON. LOL YOUR NOT GOING TO GET THAT ATTENTION WITH A ANTIBIOTIC PRESCRIPTION LOL. YOUR MINOR STRPT THROAT PERSON IS NOT SCARY OR FEARED ENOUGH TO CAUSE THEM TO HUSTLE. THE CRAZY PEOPLE WILL GET HANDLED PROCESSED AND OUT THE DOOR AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. LOL 

————IT DOESNT END THERE, DON’T ACT SURPRISED!

Now that this wait is over and the script is ready you get in line BEHIND A PERSON THAT HAS A FULL SHOPPING CART OF CRAP OR EVEN WORSE GROCERIES!!!! THIS IS NOT WHERE YOU SHOULD BE DOING YOUR GROCERY SHOPPING (THEY HAVE A SPECIAL STORE FOR THAT) THEY CALL – GROCERY STORES, OR FOOD MARKETS. 

———–FOR SOME ODD REASON I’M NOT SURPRISED AND ACTUALLY EXPECT TO HEAR THE MEDICATIONS THEY ARE PICKING UP! LOOKING AT THEIR DIET OF CRAP FOOD CHOICES. EXPLAINS THE BLOOD PRESSURE, HEART, KIDNEY, CHOLESTEROL ,LIVER, AND DIABETES MEDICATION PRESCRIBED.

CVS has stop selling cigarettes, imagine that? They are so proud that as a heath store decided to not sell cigarettes. lol  But they keep selling food products beer, candy, soda, questionable supplements and all those great healthy items. I won’t be expecting them to stop selling those items to happen in my lifetime since the discontinuation of selling cigarettes {{in a pharmacy}} just caught on. All that can be said is WOW! they just realized selling a toxic life threatening product in a pharmacy is wrong…. lol On the other hand if I to choose between cigarettes or the medications being pushed, I would rather smoke than take these medications that are at least as dangerous if not more than smoking is.

Back to getting the script. I just have to warn people its only a matter of time before people, myself included, are going to dump your shopping cart out so we can make a single item transaction to get the medication we need. You do not want to get in the way of a person and their drugs…..lol

Real simple solution….. They can pick up the meds at the pharmacy counter but should be required to bring the rest of the crap they are buying to the front register!
