There's a lot of pressure on pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to get their work done in a timely and accurate manner. Some of our lives depend on their ability to do their jobs. That's probably why one, they have to go to school for so long (and for a pretty penny) and two, why they're later paid so handsomely.
Picking up a prescription seems like a relatively simple process. Fall in line and pick up what you need. However, have you ever gotten frustrated with a pharmacist? You may have had your own reasons, but below we have a story about not one but two people who were offended by their local pharmacist.
A husband comes home to find his wife sobbing hysterically, and she tells him about an awful experience she had when calling the pharmacist that morning. The husband is obviously upset and sets out to confront the offender, and he was surprised to learn the truth.
Find out what happened below.

A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.
Infuriated, her husband drove downtown to confront the pharmacist and demand that he apologize to his wife.
When he got there, he sought out the pharmacist that his wife had spoken to.
He appeared to be stressed and quite busy, but that didn’t stop the husband from yelling at him.

Before the husband could finish, the pharmacist stopped him.
“Let me tell you my side of the story,” he told the husband. “Yes, I was burned out and in a bad mood before your wife called, but I have a perfectly good explanation.”
One lady paid with cash, and he had to break open a roll of nickels to give her change.
The roll of nickels exploded all over the floor. He got on all fours to pick up the mess. Meanwhile, the phone continued to ring.
As he was getting up from the floor, he hit his head on a showcase.
There were perfume bottles on it, and quite a few of them shattered on the ground.

Finally, he had a moment to answer the phone.
It was the man’s wife. She called because she had one question.
She wanted to know how to use a rectal thermometer.
“I don’t know what I did wrong, because honestly, all I did was tell her how!”

It definitely shows that we never know all sides to the story, and once we do, its sometimes a lot funnier than we thought. Make sure to pass it on!
