The dea is up their butts. It's just a matter of time before they raid other chains as well. At least they don't lie and tell you that don't have it in Stock when they actually do like all the other chains.

Your husband and you must be two years old if you cannot find the product yourselves after they pointed you to where it could be three times. I did not know that two year old's kids were allowed to be married, even with parental permission.

No one was rude to you, you are not the only customer in the store and they cannot give you special one on one treatment just because your parents were not there to guide you to the product. What would you consider civil treatment, holding your hand an guiding you to the product?

I think the bunny is telling the truth. Why would she lie?

Even if you say it's not true, she felt it. What are you planning on suing for?

Walgreens in New York, New York - Laceration to my face

Walgreens Sunny Smile Razors made in CHINA. These razors are defective and cause injury. They fall apart at a point where the bottom razors slips down and out of the plastic head. The exposed edge of the blade is then able to cut. This all happens of course in split seconds. These items made in CHINA are not inspected. In no way are they a quality product. These razors should not be allowed into the U.S. market. Inferior, faulty, defective products. Try them at your own risk. There should be a warning label on them. The are more dangerous than cigarettes.

Why would the person in the bunny costume make up a story like this? Sounds like the bunny isn't going to let this lecherous man get away with groping her!

And, his wife sounds like a very uneducated person and should keep her mouth shut because she should have been the one to try to get the children to calm down not the husband.

It was a situation where he thought he could get away with his indiscretion, but I'm siding with the bunny. These people, the husband and the wife, need to face the music and get what they truly have coming to them - justice!

How is a customer supposed to know what the beeps mean? Maybe a late beep is normal, maybe the door beeps for other reasons.

Unless they require their customers to show their certificate of having completed door beeping class before being allowed to enter, they can't expect the customers to correctly interpret the beeps. I just ignore them. I don't steal, and I get beeped all the time when entering and leaving stores.

This story is a good lesson for us parents when our kids are old enough for "the talk".

No, not that talk. The talk where you tell them what their rights are in these situations.

The daughter didn't know she did not have to consent to having her belongings searched. Children are taught to obey authority, and when they get into the teenage years, we need to teach them when they should not, and how to assert their rights appropriately.

Walgreens in San Leandro, California - My Employer nor Blue Cross is Govt funded

Firstly, Walgreens would give you a $25 gift card for every prescription you would transfer in January 2013. I transferred 7 from CVS but only received one $25 card and that was after complaining to management and emailing corporate Walgreens. Where's my other 6 gift cards? They will not give anymore. That's fraud! Next, I fill 4 prescriptions a month and they will not give me the 5oo points because they say I and my Blue Cross insurance is government fund. BOGUS. I have never been a govt employee, received assistance, used any coupons and my employer is not govt funded. After calling balance rewards, filing an investigation etc. they still say I am govt funded but they will not reveal where that information is coming from or what detail in my profile proves that. The Pharmacy manager even looked into my profile and stated there was nothing there that showed govt funding. Such a scam!! The only reason I stay with Walgreens is because my location has a 24 hr pharmacy and I go at 5am to pickup scripts to avoid the long lines because they have 1 person taking care of a drive thru and inside counter. Just unbelievable!!

Illinois is an "at will" state, which means you can get fired for just looking at the boss sideways. makeshift_heart, quit your whining. Sounds like you got what you deserved either way.

Two questions in regard to the "rude floater"

1.Was the medication a controlled such as a narcotic pain reliever?

2. have you made a "habit' of attempting to obtain early refills on medication?

I had a somewhat similar situation with walgreens myself. I'll be honest though, as I share my story.

I was put on Subutex after going through treatment for heroin addiction. I always used Walgreens out of convenience. I'd fill my prescription on the day I got it from my doctor. It'd usually be 1-4 days early, but I honestly never thought anything of it.

Sometimes I'd have enough to finish off the month, sometimes I needed them early. This was before I talked to my doctor, and my dosage was increased. Regardless, one month towards the middle of the year, some time in summer, I went a few days early and got a partial fill, since I didn't have all the money I needed. I made sure to ask the lady working if I would be able to come back in the next few days to pick up the rest.

She assured me that it wouldn't be a problem. They filled about a week's worth for me. When I returned a few days later, the pharmacy tech asked me to hold on because there was something up. The head pharmacist came up to the counter and told me that they would not be able to fill the rest for 22 days.

Shocked, I asked for an explanation. She refused a detailed explanation and said over and over, "you're too early! I can'f fill this. It's a controlled substance." and got louder each time I asked her to explain how I was early.

We went back and forth for awhile. She embarrassed me. I stood there in tears, fearing withdrawal. I was young at the time (early 20s).

I didn't understand what was happening. My mom called the pharmacy, who basically refused to talked to her, so she went up the chain to someone in the regional divison who finally explained that those 22 days included the remainder of the week they had filled and the 2-3 days from each month that they had filled it "early." I was never notifyed that I was too early. I was never told that this would happen if I didn't wait the full 30 days each month. The regional folks stood by their local pharmacist of course.

I finally called my doctor (or maybe my mom did), and he was kind enough to write me a nee prescription. I took it to cvs, and they explained that (because i had tried to switch the script over to them earlier, and they had talked to walgreens) they wouldn't fill it. walgreens had blocked the transfer and cvs wouldn't fill it even with a brand new script from my doctor with that day's date on it. I even told them that I did not mind waitinf until that week that Walgreens had filled ran out, but they explained that they too would have to wait the 22 days.

At that point, I was a mess because I was sure that I had been flagged in the system somehow for doing something I had no idea was some sort of problem, especially after being ensured that it wasn't a problem just a few days before. Eventually, I went to a "mom n pop" pharmacy who filled it for me with no problem. Filling my Subutex has constantly caused me problems since that time. Most pharmacies don't even want to fill it.

I went on vacation this summer, and because I can't fill it early, I tried to fill it in FL, and no one would fill it there. I thought it was because it was an out of state prescription, but one pharmacist was kind enough to explain to my boyfriend that most pharmacies in FL simply don't want to deal with Suboxone/Subutex scripts or the patients that fill it. Luckily, I have found a great pharmacy that is good and kind to me, but the process of finding that pharmacy was long and tiring. The "looks" I constantly got were embarrassing and frustrating...

the "oh look at this junkie" look. Many days, I wish I had just quit heroin cold turkey because now I'm just dependent on another substance simply to avoid using heroin and to avoid withdrawal. Apparently, the process of getting off of Subutex is harder than getting off of heroin, and it's terrifying... but I don't need the DEA and the pharmacists by proxy making the process of trying to stay sober more difficult than it already is.

I've been sober for a good 3 years now, but I'm still treated like a junkie by these people who don't know a single thing about me. I may not have been in physical pain, but I was in immense emotional pain for years, and only now that I'm sober am I finally learning how to deal with my emotional pain, anxiety, and depression.

I feel for the folks who are dealing with physical pain. I know my dad is one of those people, and I know he had been treated like an addict by pharmacists in the past as well.

I know the post is from over a year ago, but the best advice I can give to anyone is what both my dad and I did. Find a locally owned pharmacy, and build a trusting relationship with your pharmacist. These major pharmacies are not just dealing with DEA rules, but they are dealing with corporate rules as well.

Anyway, best of luck to you. I hope you've found a solution that works well for you and that you have remained in good health.
