10 Stories About Pharmacists And Their Very Confused Customers

| Right | November 4, 2020

Dear readers,

The pharmacy, at times, seems like a magical place. There is this back room that contains thousands of medicines with long names and even longer lists of side-effects, and there’s always a helpful pharmacist to hand that knows about every… single… one. Yet there are many customers who take these life-saving places for granted. Their role as the customer makes them feel entitled to laud it over the pharmacist, forgetting they’re actually a medical professional with years of study and training just to get to the stage where they are legally allowed to hand over the medication.

In solidarity with pharmacists everywhere who have had to deal with these terrible customers, we’ve rounded up ten stories from our archives about the many pains you go through, to try to alleviate your customers of their pains. You have our gratitude!
