I received the following message through the site some time ago, and I'd like to share it with the world. The insanity of it made me cringe.
Message: My son is in his 4/6 of pharmacy school. He failed (d) in one class lest semester, and is failing another. What now, the school only allows you two failures. What can he become whIth the classes he has already taken? Help. Thanks

I cannot imagine a scenario where contacting the proprietor of a website named THE ANGRIEST PHARMACIST in regards to my child's grades / education / future seems like the right decision to make. [The AOL.COM email address says enough.] How many other people should you contact before you get to INTERNET BLOGS on the list of outlets to turn to? Let's see: the professor, TA's for the class, the student's adviser, dean's office, student affairs office, ANOTHER school's admission's office, OTHER parents with kids at the school, and I'm sure I missed some. All this, of course, would come AFTER kicking this kid's ass for screwing around and partying too much.
Instead, she contacts me...assuming I understand the policies at WHATEVER school and know the classes he HAS taken and passed so I can help plan his future FOR HIM.
Would you ever turn to me for anything? Let's hope not.
Do not contact me requesting I post on how to doctor shop, avoid detection, get off your state's monitoring system, defraud your state's monitoring system, or successful combine drugs to "get all fucked up and shit."
I've got better things to do, and I really don't think that is in a pharmacist's or patient's best interests.
Fuck you kindly,
Note to self:
It is illegal to stab people for being STUPID!
This is completely true...unfortunate...but true!

The Angriest Pharmacist
Think of a line. Point A to Point B. The straight line between these two points can be of a short or significant distance. It doesn't really matter. Point A is where you currently are, and Point B is where you will end up should you continue along the line.
As a "rule of thumb," one degree off course, over a 60-mile trek finds you one mile away from your destination. The point here must be easy to see -- we are constantly heading towards Point B. Regardless of your political views or opinions, you can see the concept. We are heading toward Point B. Now, you may not see Point B clearly as none of us has a real crystal ball, but we are going toward a Point B.
You may desire an alternate end point (which is your right and prerogative), but you aren't going to get there without hard work and effort. When it comes to MASSIVE ships (such as the United State of America), huge changes are not only illogical, they are downright naive and sometimes impossible to 'navigate.'
What *is* possible are small changes -- miniscule course corrections. Over time, even tiny changes can make a world of difference. You must focus on the change of 'just a degree' if you wish to get to the result you would like.
Are you a leader? Are you passionate enough to make the necessary decision for the greater good and the wise enough to accept that you may never see your "Point B"? Just one degree may change the world.
