Default How did you survive to be that old?

BG: My maintenance scripts have all been at big chain store downtown because small local pharmacy's hours were not convenient for working people. Now that I am retired, I wanted to move them because we try to buy/support local businesses.

I called to ask what was needed and the nice lady told me to please bring in the bottles, and reminded me that they had to have remaining refills and couldn't be expired. I expressed my surprise that she would have to say such a thing and she told me that common sense was long dead.

When I got there, an elderly gentleman was sitting on the waiting bench, yelling over his phone at the doctor's office because he was out of medication and the pharmacy wouldn't give him anymore because his script was expired, which was the doctor's office and the pharmacist's fault and not his.

How he managed to make it to 80 is unknown to me.

Probably protected by a woman until she couldn't stand it anymore.
Customers should always be served . . . to the nearest great white.
