Random thoughts on people, places and things.

Long Time No Blog

Sorry, I've been feeling less than inspired lately. Got the retail blues, I suppose. I will write again soon.

Flu season has done a number on me, and I got to the point where I wanted to punch the next person that asked for a flu shot. And now the H1N1 is shipping out soon. Glory.

Before I leave for a while, I'll leave you with a short little story from last night:

This great lady, who is one of my favorite customers came in last night at the drive through. We were chatting and I was getting her prescriptions ready, and right as I handed her the bag and started to send her on her way, she asked me:

"Can you go grab me a Kit-Kat?"

Oh, bless her heart. Thank goodness she is one of my favorites.

People Watching

People are so strange.

I suppose I have odd habits that people notice, too. I noticed this one person who came to the drive through and had the largest collection of headbands (in every color and fabric) scattered along her dashboard. What? It was just the most random thing I've seen in a while.

I thought I was hearing things, but it is indeed true.

There's a new song on the airwaves called "LOL Smiley Face."

I have nothing clever to say. I think this one speaks for itself. WHAT are these record labels thinking?

A Case of the "Crazies"

This very strange woman came in for a flu shot. I can't describe it; she was just a weird one.

It got really weird when I was ready to give her shot. She said, "Tell me when," so I did.

She started screaming "Ow, oh, OW!" before I touched her with the needle. And I had people in the waiting area witnessing this. Lovely.

Think Your Patients are Bad?

I complain about customers a lot. They drive me insane. But a friend of mine is a dental hygienist, and reminded me that these morons are EVERYWHERE. Good to know I'm not alone.

"No, Mr. Smith. Running out of toothpaste is not a good reason to stop brushing your teeth."

OMG! You can't be serious.

You Deserved It!

I'm on my way to work the other day, and this idiot was driving like a total jerk. I tried to ignore him/her and continued on as I went through the tollbooth to get on the highway.

The ramp we were about to get onto is under major construction right now, with lots of those construction barrels along the way.

Well, as I'm sitting there paying my toll, jackass is in the lane next to me and decides to race to get in front of me. Again, I'm trying to ignore. Turns out that lane he's in makes a *very* sharp merge into my lane. He made it over, sped up, and managed to swipe one of the orange barrels with the entire right side of his car. And TOTALLY smashed up the side mirror! Plastic went flying, it's hanging by a thread. Oh, it was grand. You idiot! I couldn't help but take a picture.

Definitely the DOUCHEBAG of the day!

Bladdivan on SNL

Makes me giggle, just a little bit.

Que Jeopardy Tune

I am so exhausted from today. So many flu shots, so many scripts, so many questions.

At the end of the day, someone asked me if neomycin is related to penicillin. And I paused...for a very, very long time.

My brain is shot! Thank God I remembered how to get home.


Did I Mention It's FREE?

Earlier today I did quite a few flu shots. Our store was giving free gifts away as a promotion.

Would you believe that a guy came back, wanting a different color/size/flavor of his free gift?


I'm at a loss for words.
