We Talk

CPP: What are two things you would like people to know they may not know about their pharmacy/pharmacists?
CP: After the story I'm about to tell you, my two facts are these:
1. Pharmacists talk to each other, like women out phor girls night. 
2. If YOU have the same problem(s) at every pharmacy YOU visit, perhaps the problem isn't the pharmacy. YOU are the lowest common denominator. 
CPP: I take it you had an incident recently? 
CP: Indeed I did. It's nothing spectacular, but it caused me to head to twitter to send out both of these phun pharmacy tidbits. 
CPP: Let us hear it. 

<overheard on phone> Uber-Tech: Uh-huh. Yes. We will call them and transfer your 5 medications phor you. Yes. I'll call you with your copays when we get them. Uh-huh. Okay. Tschuss. 
CP: This sounds like a phun transfer. 
UT: He complained he's tired of his old pharmacy not telling him what he's picking up when he goes to the pharmacy. 
CP: Huh? 
UT: Apparently they don't tell him what's in the bag. 
CP: Wait. He placed an order phor refills
UT: uh-huh
CP: phor his 5 refills
UT: uh-huh
CP: which are the only medications he takes, 
UT: uh-huh
CP: And he complained they don't tell him what's in the bag?
UT: You got it. 
CP: He's a grown-ass adult. Does he place an order for fast food then ask them to verify the two cheeseburgers, fries, and apple pie are in the bag? He placed the order. If he wants to know what's in the bag
UT: What's in the BOX?!
CP: what's in the bag, all he has to do is ask
UT: Or look
CP: Right?!
UT: What happened when you called phor the transfer?
CP: They said the same thing. They said he complained "you don't tell me what's in the bag when I'm picking up".
UT: And you told them? 
CP: Boy's a grown ass man. He takes 5 medications and they all come due together. He's picking up 5 refills he initiated. What does he think is in the bag?
CP: Cute.
