Bob and I went to CVS to receive our Flu shot. The Pharmacist could not get our card to work and I will spare you the details of a 40 minute wait and leaving without a flu shot.
We went next door to Publix and 20 minutes later walked out prepared for the flu season. Since this was the tip of the iceberg of the past year with CVS pharmacy, I decided to transfer my prescriptions to Publix, a local supermarket with a pharmacy that is in our HMO network.
Monday at 11:30 AM, I completed the transfer, and turned to leave as the smell of hot baked bread wafted past me with a subtle hint of hot fried chicken .
I sat the bread and chicken on the counter and watched as the cashier scanned the same item 3 times, typed it in and it would not show in the computer. I said to the woman buying it, “did you know if it is scanned and not in the computer it is FREE?” She said, “NO, really?” I said, “well it might not be true now, but as soon as I get home and write it on FaceBook it will”
INSERT GIGGLES…. Cashier said “OH NO, don’t do that..” Other person said “Please do it”….
MORE LAUGHTER… Other person said, “I have a complaint. I want the milk by the front door.”
I said “No, they can’t do that, when I walk down to get milk, the potato chips jump off the shelf into my cart.” We are all giggling. I said “I just transferred my prescriptions from CVS to here, but I don’t think it will work out for me.”
Looking worried, Cashier says “Why?” I touched my bread and chicken and said “They don’t sell hot bread and chicken at CVS….” More laughter
When cashier handed me my receipt, I said “Thank you” and she said NO, thank YOU. You just made my day.
Moral of this story is Go Ahead Make someone’s day, Laughter is like medicine….
NOTE: the man in line behind me did not look like I just made HIS day… poor grumpy old guy
