Panic at the Pharmacy


First, I almost had a nervous breakdown when I looked at the clock at work and saw that it was 6:54 pm. I was working with my boss, stopped, said, "Do you know what time Wal-Mart pharmacy closes?!!!" Stopped what I was doing, googled their number and preceded to freakout until the recording said that they were open till 8. I think my blood pressure jumped 30 points in the 30 seconds it took to get the hours. After that, me and the boss decided to call it a day. I think I turned beet red... my boss knew better than to mess with that.

Then my brother called and told me they are inducing labor for his wife on Wednesday. I'm happy for them, really, but I have issues right now.

Then I got to Wal-Mart and asked to pick up my script. They didn't have one on file for me!!! OMG, I was so ready to freakout, but God Bless Aunt Flow!!! Since she arrived on the weekend, I had to leave a voicemail at the clinic for the ultrasound. Well, the nurse, Becky, returned my call from her home/cell (when the clinic calls me it always comes up as unknown). So I redialed that number hoping she would answer, and she did on like the second ring! She talked to the pharmacist and we discovered that my name got in wrong. A random "R" ended up in there. I got my script and am happy.

It wouldn't have been the end of the world if I would had missed today. I could do it 5-9. But, oh man would someone have paid. Oh, the voicemail that my clinic would have got and oh the yelling rage the pharmacy clerk was almost subjected to. Hell have no wrath like MINE. I'm nuts, really, you don't mess with me. Ask every Sprint customer service representative I have every talked to (it was deserved).

Aunt Flow may have saved lives here.

I'm glad you got the Clomid in the midst of confusion!!

That's SO hilarious about Sprint. I work for Verizon Wireless and I had a job for a couple of years that required me to call Sprint several times a day. I would get so frustrated that I would turn bright red and have to mute the phone out to say hateful things! Haha. They are SO very untrained!
