Mother's Little Helper

Today I went to get Bootsy's Valium prescription filled. I was also picking up a prescription for me so the person helping me already had my information (address, phone number). It went something like this:

Me: I would also like to get this filled. It's for my dog.

Pharmacy Worker: scrutinizing the script and the computer screen Boots? Is that a his legal name? I don't see anyone by that name on your account.

Me: laughing, to lighten the mood She's a dog. If you'll notice is says 'Boots [our last name]-CANINE' on the script.

Pharmacy Worker: Oh, has she been here before?

Me: No, she doesn't shop much and this is her first non-vet prescription.

Pharmacy Worker: Okay. What's her address?

Me: Tyring to determine if she is serious Uh, the same as mine.

Pharmacy Worker: Phone number?

Me: I can never remember her cell phone number; just use mine. Absolutely no reaction from Pharmacy Worker

Pharmacy Worker: Is she taking any other medications? Does she have any allergies?

Me: No and no. Seriously?

Pharmacy Worker: Okay, it will be ready in an hour. Thank you.

Me: Great, we'll see you then. She might want to pick-up some new magazines to chew-up this weekend.

Wow. No wonder she's never been there before.

I am laughing my butt off at this. I love how absolutely dry you were, and how she apparently was not listening to a thing you had to say... or reading the screen thoroughly... or using common sense.

This is priceless!

Okay now that is hilarious. Talk about someone who is working as a robot. I'd be scared for her to fill my script!
