Here's a Head-Scratcher!

Either business at the store is really slow, or the people I work with are nuts.

I walk in today asking the usual, "Hey, how ya doin?" and THIS is the response I got:

"Well, I ate a dog bone today!"

You did WHAT?

"Yeah, Jess brought in some chocolate-covered dog biscuits and said that someone gave them to her daughter. I TOLD her they were for dogs, but she didn't believe me. So I ate one."

I just don't know about these people...

Knockin Boots

Above is an image from Emu Australia's ad campaign for their cold weather boots.

I don't know about you guys, but this is EXACTLY how I wear my Emu and Ugg Australian boots.

What kind of bullcrap advertising is this?!


Who Says I Can't Get Pseudoephedrine?

During a pseudoephedrine transaction today, a woman who was clearly from overseas was shocked that she had to show ID to buy the product.

"Oh, is this addictive or somezing?"

"No, but people use this to make meth."

"Well, I can go to Amsterdam and smoke my own pot. We don't have to deal with this stuff over der."

Awesome! The customers in line behind her seemed uncomfortable.

You People

There's this doctor in the area who cracks me up when he leaves voicemails for new scripts. Not only does he have an awful habit of saying "uh..uh..uh.." several times in the message, he says some silly things occasionally. He's a great doctor and one of my favorites.

Tonight he left me a message and started to dispense a quantity of 14 tablets...and then interrupted himself and said, "Wait. Make that uh, uh, uh 15 tablets...since you guys count by fives."

LOL. We have machines that count for us now.

Just A Thought

Writing a prescription for both Zithromax Z-Pak and Tamiflu for the same person SCREAMS "I don't know what I'm doing!" to the pharmacist.

I understand that diagnosing isn't easy. But jeez, PICK ONE! Don't just give the guy a pharmaceutical cocktail and hope that everything turns out all right!

Strange Marketing

I saw this mannequin while shopping the other night at Forever 21. Really? This is how you think we see ourselves in your clothes? Ridiculous.


I kid you not, someone just asked what the difference is between "medication" and "drugs." He was totally serious.

Chicken Soup for the Soul?

I had a slow night at work last night, so I started browsing the new Natural Products section on Facts & Comparisons. Look what I found! Yep, it's really there. Under dosing guidelines, it suggests administering by the bowlful. I kid you not!

You're All Set

So, when I'm ringing out a customer and the transaction is complete, I tend to make a closing statement. One that I use frequently is, "You're all set, have a great day!"

Yesterday, I said this to a customer, to which he sarcastically replied, "Oh yeah? And what is it that I'm all set for?" Ugh, whatever. What I wanted to say was GFY, but I didn't.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: WHY do people go out of their way to be rude? It takes more effort to be a jerk than it does to be a pleasant person.

Well, That's One Way to Do It...

Hubby took this photo of another driver at a red light. Take a really close look: she's got her CELL PHONE tucked into the scarf/wrap. I guess that's one way to talk "Hands Free."
