To the imperious, illiterate clerk: You are a petty asshole. What gives you the right to act like a customer is a criminal because they want to buy a decongestant? When you need to say something to a customer, anything at all, you do not need to announce it to the fucking store. You spoke at a reasonable volume right up to the point I said that I wanted to buy Sudafed. Then you decided that each statement needed to be announced to the whole fucking store. As annoying as that stupid law is, that ID mush be presented to by cold medicine, there is no need to assume that any one who wants to buy a single box of Sudafed is a criminal. If you need to see a current state issued ID to sell certain items to a customer, then FUCKING LEARN TO RECOGNIZE A VALID FUCKING STATE ISSUED DRIVER’S LICENSE. If the customer tells you that a license is valid and has been renewed, and slides it back to you LOOK AT THE SIDE OF THE LICENSE THEY ARE PRESENTING YOU! If you had you might have noticed a HUGE IRIDESCENT STICKER THAT SAYS THAT THE LICENSE HAS BEEN RENEWED.
And how the fuck did you get a job in a pharmacy when you can’t even read? How much clearer can that be? “There is only one date anywhere on that license, it has not been renewed. It is not valid.” GO TO HELL! YES IT IS that is what CERTIFICATE OF EXTENSION means. There was no need to be nasty to me. Had you not been so busy copping an attitude you might have had time to read the back of the license and do your job. Oh, and by the way stop telling me what I can do. “You can come back and buy the Sudafed after you get your license renewed.” I would never come back to anyplace that has a clerk who acts like you. A clerk with even half a brain would have phrased it in terms of what the clerk can do. “I’m sorry; I can only sell that item to a customer with a valid license.” You may have to enforce store policy and the law, but there is no need to act like customers who are making reasonable attempts to comply with the law are drug crazed thieves. Your entire expression changed when I said I wanted to buy Sudafed, HOW DARE YOU! If you don’t want to sell cold medicine, then STOP WORKING IN A PHARMACY.
To the idiot manager: Don’t treat me like a fucking criminal because I am angry and your god damn officious twat of a clerk can’t read, and FUCKING TRAIN YOUR STAFF! There is no fucking excuse for the twat’s tone or manner. There is no fucking excuse for her to not see an iridescent sticker that covers nearly half of the back of the license. And there is no excuse for you not to train your staff in how to recognize a valid license. How dare you act like I am a criminal before at least glancing at the evidence? I hope you got whiplash from your head snapping back so hard when you flipped over the license and saw those big red letters. After you treat someone like a criminal it is a little late to suck up to try to keep business. I never wanted anyone to suck up, I wanted to be sold my medicine without being patronized or humiliated.
All of our ongoing prescriptions will be transferred to another drug store. If I count correctly there are eight currently. Also my weekly trips there to get the good candy will stop. A drop in the bucket no doubt, but I won’t be going back there at all.
