I don't understand people.
I worked yesterday, and I can't believe the number of people who came into our pharmacy, loaded down with prescriptions. Isn't anyone at the beach? Bar-B-Que? A friend's house with a beer? Jeez, I don't know about you all, but the last place I'd be on a holiday is a pharmacy( unless I had a fight with the grill and lost). And good 'ol "Murphy" was there as well. Customers could not understand why, if there was a problem with their Rx, why we couldn't fill it. IT'S A HOLIDAY! which means ( you idiot!) that there is no one at the Dr.'s offices/ insurance companies to help solve the problem. If your Dr. Can't write worth a damn, it's not MY fault! Oh, and I do believe that YOU are responsible for having your insurance information at hand. I am not a mind reader! So this morning I will have about 30 phone calls to make, to get all these "problems" solved- BLEH! I love my job, I love my job, I love my job..............
And to add insult to injury, I woke up yesterday with a sore throat, which is now a full blown cold. So while I'm at work today, I'm gonna get some really good drugs. I have that wedding to go to Saturday, and I don't want to be miserable in the process. Hacking up my lungs is just not my idea of a good time!
We got an e-mail at work yesterday that will just add to my present "joy" at work. It seems (Stephanie posted about it, and you all have heard about it on the news, surely!) that Florida Medicaid, as of June 1st, will no longer cover Viagra. They only covered 1 tablet a month anyway, but this will probably piss off a few of our patients. I agree, that people that are convicted sex offenders should not be allowed this drug! Hell, I don't think my tax dollars should pay for some lazy SOB to "get his rock's off" as it were. I know that sounds harsh, but you have to see it from my point of view. I see these people ( not ALL, but a vast majority) come in, driving their brand new SUV, with enough gold on their person to purchase a 3rd world country, getting their drugs for free. And then pay for anything else with their Gold American Express card!!!!!! I'm sorry, I am usually a very compassionate person. I will move heaven and earth for a patient if needed. But I can't work up the sympathy for these people. If they can't get their drugs for free, they won't get them at all. And I've seen the same people not pick up their children's medications, just because they'd have to pay for them!! I'd sell my soul, if I had to, to pay for my child's medication. But they just don't care. So why should I? I just don't know........
Well, off to treatment. Then to work. I only hope my attitude changes ( could be the weather, since it's been storming since 3am, and I've been awake that long!) I hate myself when I'm like this. Have a good day, and sorry about the "venting"! But at least it's off my chest. Which doesn't need any more abuse at the moment ;-)
Peace and Love, KC
