165. Don't count on it being a Pharmacist
More likely a Pharmacy Technician. They have a vo-tec training that lasts "up to several weeks". I've found one Wal-Mart Pharmacy Tech "drunk with power" when I tried to get insulin syringes for a diabetic cat. I had a 'scrip for syringes from the vet, but they ran out on a weekend and I messed up. Oddly, you can buy insulin without a 'script, but I'm not sure what you can do with it without a syringe.
I go to this pharmacy for several medications for myself and my wife. They actually had a record of many 'scripts filled previously for the cat. Seems the law says one can purchase 10 needles without a script.
She refused to sell them to me. She said "junkie" under her breath. I sought a manager and an actual pharmacist, who apparently was in the toilet when this happened. I made a huge stink over it, and people were regretting it. I got my 10 syringes and came in the next day with a 'script for the rest of the carton.
Seven years later, and that cat died three years later, I still go to Wal-Mart for scripts, because I have no prescription plan. My wife's job covers her for about 75% of the insurance, but spouse or children pay about $800 a month for coverage, so I have nothing. Wal-Mart is by far the cheapest pharmacy in the market and I save hundreds going there every year.
To this day, that bitch has been sugar sweet to me, and I am still very abrupt with her. A few years ago, after getting laid off, I worked for Wal-Mart for about 6 months. I had issues with her then too.
