Any Walgreens I have ever been to is always short staffed, but the way the customers act is what kills me. For ONE, YOU are not the ONLY person that exists.
TWO there is a process that each prescription has to go through and you must realize with the short staffing, there might be one pharmacist and one tech filling 200-300 prescriptions, then the phone is ringing off the hook, the front end won't help, pharmacy hours get cut and then without knowing one piece of the process, you yell at the helpless staff members who have no control over certain things, all because you think you are so important. Well guess what, you aren't.
And yes you might be in pain, but the pain medication that is prescribed really only changed the way the body responds, the pain never really will go away, so you can wait a few extra minutes, don't take the chance of having the pharmacy make a mistake. Next time you need an rx filled, ask if you can come behind the pharmacy counter to see exactly what the pharmacy staff have to deal with to fill one rx!
