I feel like I’m on a sharp blade right now and that the sharpness is unavoidable. I will fall either direction, it’s just a matter of how deep and which way I slip. Will I go crazy as the season moves on and I get closer to the date of my surgery or will I stay sane, calm and the loving mother that I am.
I have a huge issue with keeping my patience right now. I can not keep it at all. It’s not just my kids either. I’m in target and waiting for a prescription for my daughter. They told me 30 minutes I thought yeah right! So I gave them longer, we bought some cookies, a snack and enjoyed ourselves and close to an hour later they still weren’t done with our prescription.
One of the techs told me that it was done but the pharmacist had to check it. Ummm, why? And they said she would do it right after injecting that person with the flu shot. So, what happens next, the pharmacist goes and gets another flu shot ready, injects another person and I have to wait another 15 minutes and my kids are grumpy. I was livid. I can usually control my temper but the tech was telling people, oh, your prescription will be ready in 20 minutes. I was thinking you are crazy to tell her that. So I looked at the lady and said, It’s going to be at least an hour before it’s ready. She looked at me like she was scared out of her mind because she would have to wait an hour for her prescription to be filled. I’m thinking I guess it depends on how many flu shots they give in between and there is only one pharmacist there. The tech looked at me shocked. You’ve been waiting an hour? Yes, Yes I have, my kids are screaming and you think I’m here for the fun of it.
The pharmacist was kind enough to give me a 10.00 coupon for a target gift card. That’s the only thing that calmed me down. Over Estimate. Always Over Estimate. Makes for happier customers when you get done early.
Also, employees that argue with me. Sometimes I wonder if they are docked pay over coupons. How many people actually use coupons, in my area, not that many, or at least not the way I do. Be happy that I’m saving money. The guy that rang me up today at Target, I glared at him when he questioned my coupon usage. I told him, you get the redemption for every coupon and he stopped arguing with me.
My last thought is, am I the only one in this country that speaks English anymore. We are the only country that does not have a national language. If we switched, to French, Spanish, Dutch, Polish, German, I mean, I would learn it. Why can’t we all speak the same language. There is such a barrier sometimes.
