(So I’m 15 and doing compulsory work experience at a supermarket near my house. The school organised the placement for me as i was off school due to appendicitis while it was being organised. I’ve been diagnosed with ADHD since i was 12, and take a dose in the morning, and a tiny dose around lunchtime. The manager (who has made it very clear that she doesn’t like me) sees me taking the half-tablet during my lunch break. She storms over and grabs the pill bottle from me and starts reading the label…)

Manager: *After reading the “Controlled drug” warning on the bottle* “I’m calling the police, and your school.”

Me: *dumbfounded* “…What?”

Manager: “You’re taking illegal drugs. Where’d you even get this from?”

Me: “It’s not illegal with a prescription, and my Neurologist [well known child neurologist] prescribed it to me for ADHD.”

Manager: “You don’t have ADHD. You’re just saying that.”

Me: *getting over this crap* “You know what? I don’t care. I have my school ID with my picture and my name on it, and that’s proof enough that the bottle’s mine, and that i’m taking it to my prescription.”

(My thinking was that i didn’t care if she called the school, as they have my meds on record, and if she calls the police i can give them the number to my neurologist’s rooms.)

Manager: *smugly* “Well then i will. Even if this WAS your pills. You should know not to carry this many around with you at once.” (there’s only half a tablet left in the bottle)

(She called my school first, and they explained everything to her, so the police weren’t called (thankfully). But my school send me an email saying not to go back in to WE. How could someone be stupid enough to not even read that my NAME was on the bottle… I guess she just really didn’t like me for some reason…)
