As a follow up to last night’s post.
I tried all the methods mentioned in the comments to fix the problem.
I yelled at Adam. That didn’t do any good. He just yelled back.
Actually I didn’t yell at him. I hardly ever get mad enough to yell. I didn’t even get upset with him. I was just pissed at myself.
The next day I called a pharmacy to see what I would need to get enough pills to get through the weekend.
I would need a prescription it turns out.
So I called my doctor. He doesn’t take calls on the weekend. So that was a bust.
I called my mail order pharmacy. That too was a bust. They were about as helpful as syphilis. It of course took ten minutes to get through the press one for English, press two if you are a doctor bullshit. Then of course the prompter asks me to give my name. My birthday. Etc. Which I then had to do again when I finally got through to a person.
Who said to me.
“You just have to take a prescription to the pharmacy and they’ll fill it.”
He then asked me if I had a prescription from the doctor.
To which I replied (as Adam glared at me from across the room) “If I had a prescription I wouldn’t be on the phone talking to you. I’d be at the pharmacy.”
I then asked if they could transfer my prescription to the pharmacy so that I could get enough for the weekend. I was told they could not.
So I was left without an option on a Saturday afternoon, four states away.
This would also be a good time to tell you how fucked up my mail order pharmacy is.
Twice they’ve sent my prescriptions to the wrong address.
Once the charged my order to a credit card I’d given them from my first order, which took the card over it’s limit, which cost a small fortune.
Once they filled a prescription without my asking for it to be filled and causing me to overdraw my checking account.
At least twice it’s taken over three weeks to get my prescriptions so I had to get a prescription from my doctor to fill the gap.
And they tell me that it’s good to use them because it will save me money.
I hate calling them. I hate dealing with them. They pretty much suck.
Of course I have to hold my breath right now because I currently have an order in with them. Let’s hope it doesn’t take three weeks to get the order and that they send it to the right address.
