A Tough Pill To Swallow

, , , , , | Right | August 21, 2020

I work in the wellness department of a natural foods store. We often work with customers to sift through our products and help them pick the right ones.

Customer: “Hi. I’m looking for a calcium supplement for my kids. I don’t need anything fancy —  no flavors or anything because they can swallow pills.”

Me: “Wow, aren’t you lucky!”

Most parents have a horrendous time trying to find something their kid will willingly take because most kids can’t swallow pills.

Customer: “Oh, they’re seven and twelve; of course they’re fine.”

Me: “Huh. I couldn’t swallow pills when I was seven.”

Customer: “Well, we’re all a little spoiled. If your parents had made you, you would’ve gotten them down.”

Maybe so, but my parents didn’t abuse me.
