**Stupidest Pharmacy Stories **
Had a guy call in an obviously fake script one day over the phone. I (pharm tech back then) took the call. Put him on hold; tell the pharmacist…“there’s a guy on the phone who wants to call in a fake script”. My boss was skeptical…I said wait until you talk to him. He was higher than a kite.
Pharmacist takes the script (Vicodin), gets off the phone; she decided if he’s stupid enough to show up and try to pick it up, we’ll bust him. He was, and he did. Store security had said we would have to actually make the sale and then they would bust him…ummm…ok. Guy shows up, I ring him up, staple the bag shut with the receipt, and off he goes…straight into the waiting arms of store security.
After all the commotion of the bust, the store manager calls us to come get the drugs. I went upstairs to the office, and the store manager says “I can’t believe you guys!”.
“I can’t believe you guys actually let that guy walk away from the counter with the drugs! What if he’d gotten away?”
I smiled, and proceeded to open the bag, take the bottle out, open it, and dump out the…
paperclips…that were in it. (what - you didn’t think we were going to give him real drugs?)
The manager almost pissed himself laughing.
