The Answer is STILL no

Last Friday.... my tech called me over to talk to Mr Druggie about his request for early benzo rx. He had filled @#90 of said rx 2 days prior. Reason for early fill???? He lost it. Uh-huh. He goes on and on about how stupid he was to have it in his pocket and it fell out while he was working. As usual, I say not until I clear it with the MD and it is 5:20 on Friday. He insists I call the MD anyway since he thinks they are still there. They aren't. What a surprise.

Last Saturday.......I answer phone and the guy on the line is asking if he can fill his med early since he is going on a cruise Sun. I ask for his name. It is Mr Druggie and what do you know? It's for the same med as Friday. Now, I'm really ticked. I say the answer is no as it was yesterday when he asked for early fill. I also inform him that YESTERDAY the story was that he had lost the meds at work. He denies ever saying this and he needs the med because he is going on a cruise. I repeat Friday's conversation back to him and he says that it doesn't matter b/c he needs it now for his vacation. Answer: no. asks me to get phone for early benzo refil request. Can everyone guess who it is?? NOW he is leaving for Michigan on Monday. I have to bite my tongue not to start yelling at him to never come back to my pharmacy. THE ANSWER IS STILL NO. He asks when he can have it.....I tell him the day before the refil is due which is July 2nd. Not early enough for him as he will be out of town then.

Is there a cruise line on the Great Lakes now?????

Oh, and the best....he is a Medicaid patient. A cruise and a trip to Michigan while on the state's dime.

you've got to be kidding me

I have a problem tech as most of us probably do. She is one step away from getting canned for repeated sick calls and being late. But, to her credit, she has not missed a day since March.

She goes out quite often for me to get me various food to clog my arteries. I do not have her punch out for this as it is my request and not her lunch. This weekend she asks if I need her to go get me lunch. I had actually brought lunch for once and asked her if she needed to go get herself something. She said, "No but I was hoping you wanted something so I could go by Blockbuster."

WHAT? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I do not eat at Blockbuster. Getting me food is not time for her to do other errands. I am still pissed off. I asked her why she thought going to get me food included her stopping by Blockbuster and she just said "I just needed to look for something real quick."

I will have to be seriously starving to ever send her for food again.
