I thought only doctors shared strange stories. But these ones were told to me by our pharmacy resident this week. He also interns at a local retail pharmacy and shared these true encounters he had to put up with:
Irate woman in her 20s, yelling at the pharmacist that the birth control pills "don't work". Naturally he asked if she was pregnant, and she said no. So when asked why did she think they don't work, she yelled back:
"Because these damn things keep falling out!"
Woman at counter, sheepishly asking if Vagisil came in strawberry flavor...
(Apparently her boyfriend found the taste offensive. Ewww. Come on, let the yeast infection clear up first!)
