  • Outside the pharmacy....

    Outside the pharmacy where have you been apprehended by a customer regarding their script?

    Do you regularly get recognised in the street as "the pharmacist" and get subsequent glares/greetings? Do you have to shop out of town to avoid your customers? Have you bumped into any customers whilst on holiday?

    Just interested in whether anyone has managed to avoid any contact with customers outside of work.

    Yes.

    Or even the pub.

    Do you have to shop out of town to avoid your customers?
    No - I chose to work away from home at first just to avoid this sort of stuff
    ... but people near home find out that you're a pharmacist and ask you anyway.

    Have you bumped into any customers whilst on holiday?
    No - but many years ago did find one of my local doctors sunbathing topless on the beach.

    Why worry - it's going to happen anyway.

        My parmacist boyfriend got followed home by one of the methadone punters once. Wasn't really a threat though cos she was really weedy, obvioulsy preferring to substitute heroin for food.

        When working in the depths of deep dark Peckham I once told but some arsehole that he was going to wait outside for me after i finished. Although he used more explenative to say that. Nothing happened tho.

        I dunno...maybe you should buy a fake moustache/glasses/hat if you're worried.

          Always a danger in the reality of modern pharmacy practice.

          2018 AD : Modern Man : I shopped, I clicked, I collected.

          If you find you have read something that has upset or offended you an anyway please unread it at once.

            "Do you regularly get recognised in the street as "the pharmacist" and get subsequent glares/greetings? "

            no not a pharmacist yet, but i get recognized from some addicts living around. " oh this is the guy who gives us needles".

            "Have you bumped into any customers whilst on holiday?"
