(Two customers enter at the same time. One is a woman, and the other is a man in his 70s. I get their scripts ready. As the woman is done first, I send her up to the tills while I finish with the man. Since there is another customer at the tills, I end up putting the man through before the woman is served.)
Woman: “I was here first! How come he is served before me? What does he have that I don’t?
(The man responds without a second thought.)
Man: “Raw sex appeal.”
(If I was allowed to discount scripts, I would have given him his for free.)
(I am counseling a customer who is receiving a prescription for her child’s strep throat. As she’s signing for the prescription, I give her directions on the medication.)
Me: “It needs to be shaken well.”
(All of a sudden, she starts shaking the electronic pen that is attached to the signature pad. After a moment she stops.)
Customer: “You meant shake the medicine, didn’t you?”
Me: “Thank you for calling the pharmacy. How may I help you?
Customer: “Hi, my fiancè’s mother is incompetent, and I am going to be helping out with her medicines.”
(When she says ‘incompetent,’ I am thinking she might want to transfer the woman’s meds to our pharmacy, has a question about her drugs, or something of the sort.)
Me: “Okay, what can I help you with?”
Customer: “Since she is incompetent, I think she is going to need some kind of diaper or underwear. So, what do y’all sell there?”
