    There’s No Pills Like Home, Part 2

    | New Jersey, USA |

    (My phone number is 1 number off a nearby pharmacy. We get a lot of misdials. My father happens to actually be a pharmacist but he doesn’t work there.)

    Me: “Hello?”

    Caller: “Hello? You just say Hello? How dare you be so rude! You should say “thank you for calling”!”

    Me: “Oh, you must be looking for [pharmacy]. You have the wrong number.”

    Caller: “Liar! How would you know what store I’m looking for? You’re just trying not to get in trouble. Give me your manager.”

    Me: “Ma’am, I don’t have a manager. You’ve called a private residence. The number for the pharmacy is close to our number, so we get a lot of wrong calls.”

    Caller: “This is outrageous! Give me your manager! I will not be treated this way!”

    (At this point the caller was rambling and being rude so I hung up the phone. She called back, and my father answered it.)

    Father: “Hello?”

    Caller: “Is this the manager? Thank god! I want to know if [drug] can be taken with food! And you should fire that girl that answered before, she was very rude to me! I want to file a complaint!”

    Father: “Ma’am, this is not the grocery store pharmacy. You just told off my 14-year old daughter. I happen to be a pharmacist. That drug does not need to be taken with food. However, you should see a doctor about your ears, as you clearly can’t hear a word anyone says.”
