As a community Pharmacist, you see many kinds of people come in to get their prescriptions, pick up health and beauty supplies and ask general questions about medication application.
As a pharmacist you have to be careful and discreet, paying full attention especially when it comes to serious issues.
Don’t be surprise patients will come to ask the unusual questions what wasn’t thought in pharmacy school. Sometimes you have to muster all your strength to keep a straight face and give a satisfactory answer but some of these questions could really get on your nerves and you be like `did you actually muster that out… are you kidding me sir…. After the entire scene the best to do is to carefully explain what they don’t know but a few would still disagree, at this point you leave their case for God to solve.
These are some of the ridiculous encounter community pharmacists could have with their patients.
After giving out, out of stock they keep asking severally where else to get the drug like that’s the only pharmacy in the world
