So not happy with my pharmacy

I called in a refill for Mariella’s Pulmicort yesterday. It’s her sick plan, so we don’t need it all the time…I don’t keep “extra” in the house…I have one box that we use till it’s gone, and then I refill. I had 1 unit left, so I called in the refill. I went to pick it up, and the pharmacy didn’t have it, AND never called to tell me they DIDN’T have it. ANNOYING.

THEN, I was cleaning the kitchen, which includes taking the meds that I’ve just thrown on the counter out of their boxes, putting the refill label on the inside of the cabinet, and stowing the meds in the proper person’s (read…Mariella’s) box. So, we had 2 new Xop’s that I picked up a couple weeks ago, and I’ve just been lazy…they weren’t in the way, so I didn’t put them away. I opened the box and noticed that the expiration date was for April 2010! Really…NEXT MONTH? I know we go through them quickly, but not THAT quickly.

So, in addition to everything that I have to do to get ready to LEAVE tomorrow…I have to go to the pharmacy not ONCE but TWICE. If the guy gives me crap, I’ll be pulling all our scripts from that pharmacy and moving them to another one. I have better things to do with my time than plat stupid games.
