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,
...and they continue to visit this fucking blog. I'm getting quite tired of their emails, comments, and general bullshit. Honestly, do they surf the web day-in and day-out looking for someone that is posting ANONYMOUSLY (like me) for the shear purpose of threatening them with legal action, calling/emailing employers, and notifying certification bodies and boards? I don't even understand why they'd waste their time writing the comment / email because they are DEFINITELY going to be wasting their time with the follow up. Let's analyze the following example:
"dallas" posted on 2/19/12 a comment to The Crap People Send Me (originally posted on 5/10/11).
As a refresher, "The Crap People Send Me" was a letter from a "pharmacy technician" "suffering from migraines." Here "PCP" was "treating" her "migraines" with Oxycontin and Roxycodone. She "found" a prescription in her "cookie jar" for Percocet. This "pharmacy technician" wanted to know if this "prescription" would show up on her profile at her "regular pharmacy" -- because she filled it as "cash" somewhere else. She asked her "dad" who is "an RPH" and couldn't get a straight answer.
Everything stinks about the letter. Every. Single. Thing. I'd bet less than 10 words of truth existed in this original email from "Pat." After 38 comments to this post, "dallas" decides to chime in...
I am so disturbed that any one of you are working in the medical field and are Pharmacists, you have no business taking care of sick people w/your cutting words. I completely agree with Aura and she seems to be the only person w/reason. I came upon this site looking for other options to taking a narcotic for brain aneurysm aftercare headaches and WOW! You are entitled to your opinion but name calling is unacceptable and i truly hope, or better yet maybe i will submit this site to the pharmacy board so they can get rid of all of you non-compassionate so called caring professionals. Quit the name calling and having sooo much fun assuming you know all this person has been thru and do the job you are PAID very well to do. disgusting behavior and i am thankful i am nothing like any one of you!
I don't know why "dallas" feels the need to defend such despicable behavior. That's dumb enough, but for her to think she is going to "submit this site to the pharmacy board" it tremendously ignorant. It's laughable. First of all, there has been around 35 different commenters to this post. I'm sure that if you wanted it bad enough, you theoretically COULD submit your pissant comment to all 50 state boards of pharmacy, but what are you going to tell them? Even if they do read it, how will you sound? "Dear UTAH BoP, please go to TheAngriestPharmacist.com -- There's a post from a real drunk pharmacy technician named Pat. She admitted to several crimes then asked TheAngriestPharmacist if she was going to get caught. What I would like to draw your attention to is the amount of mean name calling from all the doodie heads on the website. I would like you to revoke the pharmacist license for the following people: TheAngriestPharmacist, Drunken Agnostic, hi, nicole, brian, crappypharmacist, etc. Thank you for your time, dallas"
Honestly, could a person be any more retarded? You think I'm gonna just for over server logs and records outlining everyone who posts on the site? You think I'm gonna be helpful to a search like that? Or, do you think I'm going to NSA wipe my server and replace the website with fetish porn just to be a cocksucker? Ding Ding Ding!
It's like people have no concept of anonymity, privacy, and secrecy. I guess the average idiot believes that because they browse the web and interact with the internet on a full-name-no-filter basis that we all must do the same. Therefore, anytime someone on the internet does something impertinent, wrong, or rude, all you must do is notify the nearest constable who will turn on his interweb box, ask the webmaster of the internets who uses the code name "DAVE" and then call Dave's dad who will then punish him for saying rude things. It's also ultra naive to think that a BoP will even bother reading a complaint stemming from something posted on MY fucking website. I bet they don't get a sentence into it before discussing how much they enjoy reading my site...so suck on that, dallas.
Next we have Ang responding on 1/18/12 to Doctor Shopping and Insurance Fraud and Asshat Patients -- Oh my from 3/22/11 with:
There are several issues here. First of all, pharmacists do not have the authority to determine whether a crime was committed or not. By accusing her of such publicly (to the other pharmacies) you opened the pharmacy that employs you (not to mention yourself) up to a big fat lawsuit. You may have seen this as a cut and dry case, but no matter how transparent the crime, it is only at the discretion of the criminal justice system that a person be charged with, and found guilty of a crime. You went about this the wrong way, and I will be bringing this to the attention of proper authorities. They can easily identify you using your IP.
My immediate response: Go fuck yourself you little asshat. Do you think that I did something like that standing in the middle of the pharmacy where all could here? What if that story isn’t even true? This is an anonymous blog. I could be anywhere in the world talking to anyone in the world. Give me a fucking break… Which organization do you plan on running the manhunt for the rogue pharmacist being mean to a patient?
I would like to note again that this stupid comment from this ignorant fuck was nearly a YEAR after the post was originally made. Secondly, I would like to note that a licensed physician graced this post with a lengthy response where he identified and discussed many things...the most important being the statement, "THE PHARMACIST DID THE RIGHT THING."
Ang would lead us to believe that pharmacist's cannot determine if a crime was committed -- I guess it's pretty silly us taking all those law courses and certifcations then isn't it. I wouldn't know a crime if it slapped me in the face, I just spend a year studying pharmacy law in school...you idiot bastard! Then, this poster has the audacity to throw out the "you opened yourself up to a lawsuit," bullshit. Today's sue-happy litigation-frenzied society needs to erase this type of shit from their vocabulary. You make yourself look stupid and your kids are just gonna pick up even more bad habits and idiotic ideas. Here are the facts. Crimes were committed. Not only do I have the training and knowledge to recognize that, I have the fucking proof. In addition to that, I am the star witness for the prosecution. The only thing the DA needs from me in this instance to turn this case into a slam-dunk conviction is a fucking phone call alerting them that it happened. From there, I'll accept it's out of my hands. Judge, Jury, Executioner....whatever...but to even hint that I'm not involved is just plain ignorant. Also to claim that I or my company is at risk of a lawsuit for calling a thief a thief or a liar a liar whilest having the evidence in hand is also pretty fucking ignorant, Ang. (If you're keeping score, you've yet to share anything NOT utterly retarded). The final statement you've left us with is a veiled threat. TAestP did something that *you* interpret as "wrong" so *you* are gonna tell the proper authorities who can find me by "using my IP."
First off, YOU DO NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO DETERMINE WHETHER A CRIME WAS COMMITTED OR NOT. BY ACCUSING ME, PUBLICALLY (TO THE OTHER READERS) YOU HAVE OPENED YOUR ISP THAT PROVIDES YOU WITH INTERNET SERVICE (NOT TO MENTION YOURSELF) UP TO A BIG FAT LAWSUIT. YOU MAY HAVE SEEN THIS AS A CUT AND DRY CASE, BUT NO MATTER HOW TRANSPARENT THE CASE, IT IS THE DISCRETION OF THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM THAT A PERSON BE CHARGED WITH AND FOUND GUILTY OF A CRIME. --- You DID exactly what you accused me of, you little sniveling shitass. I'm not sure who the proper authorities are, or why they'd give a shit about a story on a pharmacist's website from a YEAR ago, but knock yourself out. Finally, that almighty IP. Do people know what that means, what it is, or how it works? I don't think so. Yes, an IP can ID you. I could post yours here (but since it was a year ago, it would've changed). Yes that can be used to locate easily and identify with the help of the ISP. But, here's the tricky part --- what's *MY* IP? Go on...tell me...What's TheAngriestPharmacist's IP Address? You're on his website...surely he posted it on there right? It would take a little effort to identify me. Not a lot...just a little...But guess what...that "little" is 100x more work than ANY law enforcement agency wants or cares to do without solid evidence that a crime was committed and they can get a conviction or confession. And "all you got to go on is a stupid post on a silly pharmacist blog. How do you know he didn't make it up?"
So, idiots of the world, I emplore you. PRINT MY WEBSITE WORD FOR WORD. Take it to the "board of pharmacy" (all of them for all I care), Tell your lawyer, Send a copy to every law enforcement agency on the fucking planet. No one is going to care. They are going to ask you why your vagina hurts and tell you to man the fuck up. Save your time and just man the fuck up...
1. Monday, I had a lady come up to the counter and ask where I carried the "Lacklend, Lacklyn, or Lacklin -- something like that." [I asked her for some possible spellings] After searching, I was pretty sure she was looking for Lac-Hydrin...possibly Lansinoh which is Lanolin. I presented these findings to her along with a product list of the various sizes of Lac-Hydrins. At this point, she became adamant that it was "LackLend" and that I wasn't looking right. At this point, I told her I thought I remembered them having the product on sale at a specialty pharmacy that is about 45 minutes away. Since she didn't bother to call me, I can only hope she drives all the way there to get the product. Either listen to reason or get told complete bullshit.
2. Had a very rotund person (never seen her before -- so not a regular) came in and ask me about getting a shingles vaccine as she did not want to catch it from any of her friends. I told her that it was in no way contagious. She goes on to say that 2 or 3 of her friends have it or have had it and that her doctor told her that "IT. WAS. CONTAGIOUS!" I told her that "I will back off my previous statement a very small bit -- If a person comes into contact with a shingles rash, for instance if they are covering the wounds and come into contact with the actual seeping wound, they could potentially catch CHICKENPOX if they had not previously had CHICKENPOX or the CHICKENPOX Vaccination. Shingles, meaning the form of chickenpox that comes back up later in life and causes serious pain, cannot be transmitted from on person to another." [Source: http://www.immunize.org/askexperts/experts_zos.asp] Her response was a steadfast, "Well, my doctor doesn't agree. He says you can get it from anyone that has shingles on their skin or has ever had it."
At this point, I once again took the position of not giving a fuck. Either listen to reason or go away. I told her, "If your doctor is telling you this, and he is serious, I think you need to get a new doctor. As I can print out several different papers and references in just a few minutes that would disprove that notion."
Her response was, nothing less than I expected, "Maybe I should get a new pharmacist..." I just sad, in a trailing voice but loud enough for her to full figure out what I PROBABLY said, "I think you should do that you stupid fat bitch..." Believe me...she was being a standoffish, stupid, fat bitch.
3. Had a lady come to pick up a refill for, of course, Xanax. It was later in the night -- slowed down immensely. I was completely caught up and actually listening to the radio a bit. She came to the pickup window, I looked up her name and immediately saw that we had requested refills, and we had not heard back. She looks me right in the eye and says, "Is it in you box? I mean...can you check your box?...Is it in your box?" I really wanted to say, "Why no, have you checked YOUR BOX? I'm sure we could hide a set of car keys in there!" Instead, she goes into a long diatribe about how a 3 months ago she came to pick up her refill and we told her it wasn't called it...only to find out that after she drove "all the way to the doctor's office," [a gas-chugging 4-5 minutes away] "it was sitting on the counter as there was a problem with it." [The doctor faxed it back sans signature] So, I stand by the statement that the doctor hadn't really done his job! At that juncture, we had faxed them back for ANOTHER Auth. Today, I told her that our inBOX didn't receive prescriptions (just email). She asked me to check our voicemail BOX, and I told her I didn't need to as our number of VMs is displayed on screen [I had ZERO]. No other BOXes to check...cept yours, biggun'!

"REFILL TOO SOON," GUYS. That means, in pharmacy lingo, your insurance will not pay for your prescription until the resubmit date. One late night at the pharmacy, which by the way is in the ghetto, a woman comes in to refill her son’s prescription. As I processed the prescription I explained to her that it is a REFILL TOO SOON and the insurance wouldn’t pay for the refill until tomorrow morning. She obviously wouldn’t accept that answer and went into a rant against me (a technician), the pharmacist working with me, and our drug store. As I recall it went something like this:
“My baby needs his medication! He is sick! He needs it NOW!!!!! You stupid white bitch you had better fill my prescription or im going to kick your ass! Her's too. That other bitch pharmacist! What you think yous better than me? I want it now! Ima get me suma that shit now and my momma gon' pay for it! Make it now! Get it ready, Bitch!”
I looked at her, looked at the pharmacist, and explained to the woman that if she would WAIT ONE MORE DAY [less than 18 hours, actually], the prescription wouldn’t have copay because this woman was on state assisted insurance.
I told her that the medication would be $45 and if she wanted it, she could pay for it, but that amount wouldn’t be refunded the next day. Her response, although not responsive to the information, went something like this:
“What you think I’m broke, bitch? I can’t pay for my babay's medicine? Fuck you ima just buy it ima just buy it you can’t tell me what to do, this my babay, THIS MY BABY AND HE NEEDS HIS MEDICINE NOW GET IT READY DUMB BITCH.”
You're not broke? Oh, okay. Then I guess you’re just one of those lazy folks who doesn’t work and just expects the government to pay for your prescriptions. I can safely assume you are probably on food stamps too? Welfare? You're yelling at me, and I am partially paying for your prescription by paying taxes? I have no choice but to have my tax dollars used to pay for “your babay's medicine,” and I have no choice but to abide by your every wish and want because 'the customer is always right,' right? So, I swallowed my insults, and I bottled my anger, and filled the prescription.
By this time, her mom (the "babay's" grandma) came to the counter and apologized profusely with the accurate explanation that woman was mentally retarded. MENTALLY RETARDED. And she has children? What the fuck. You can draw your own conclusions on that one. And by the way, after all that, she didn’t, or better yet, her mom didn’t buy the medication because she, having some sense about her, WANTED TO WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT DAY. By the way, the drug was for SEASONAL ALLERGIES. Not seizures, not juvenile diabetes, not horrible psoriasis, not dangerous asthma, not epi or glucagon. SEASONAL ALLERGIES. Couldn't wait 18 hours, and *I'm* the dumb bitch.
