Mrs. margorie is a sweet old lady that just wants someone to talk to, and i am there for her. And Mr. McDonald dropped bombs on japan in WW2, he is a great man. i wish yall could have met him.allright, enough drunk talk. i love my job. i live my dream every time i clock in at work.
Awww, now I wanna meet Ms. Margorie. And it isn't corny at all. You're a fortunate man indeed. I suspect you're happy because of circumstances dealing with innards rather than outtards. I'm working on getting there myself O' Sensei. :icon_bigg We still gotta get together at Mollys or something sometime. I'd like to hear stories about your job and all those characters you meet.

Sorry--I shorthanded it. This guy was constantly calling various dentists, whining about a middle-of-the-night toothache; they'd call in the script for the requisite antibiotic/vicodin; he'd come in beligerant as demanding his V, etc., etc. He was an and by that point (my response) the pharmacy manager instructed us to tell him that unless he bought the antibiotic as well, we wouldn't see the vicodin, and, naturally, he didn't like that. It was a situational issue. But, the bigger picture is that I got burnt out seeing the great unwashed come up to the counter with makeup, snacks, magazine, etc. then loudly refuse to buy their kid's $18 medicine because it "cost too much--don't have the money."

I suppose I'm only a tolerant person in theory and in the abstract. Gets me every time. :laughing6

That would make for a curious reality show--something like The Apprentice except replace Trump with Hefner.
