Person: “He’s a pharmacist? I’ve thought about being a pharmacist before. Where does he work?
Person: "Oh, are they hiring?”
Me: (pause) “Well, generally speaking, pharmacists are in demand.”
Person: “Really? I should get an application. Do you think he could get me on at CVS?”
Me: “You have to earn a specific degree, like, in college, in order to be a pharmacist…”
Person: (looking all confused) “Just to count pills?”
Me: (trying not to sound offended) “He could kill you, ya know.”
Ah, the humble pharmacist. Much is expected of them, yet they expect nothing in return (besides a bunch of money). Do you know how many times they have NOT killed you or your loved ones? Every time you haven’t died after taking a prescription drug—that’s how many times.
