Auto-refill *sigh*

Look, I don't want to be a nagging bitch, but I shouldn't have to ask the same pharmacy to put the same prescription on the same auto-refill schedule three fucking times within one month.
I have gotten word-for-word the exact same reply every time I have asked. "Oh yes, no problem, I will do that for you right now, okay. Have a nice day."
Yeah, I would excepttttt for the fact that I'm pretty confident I will walk in there tomorrow to finally pick it up and get a confused look and be told that it will be ready tomorrow and no problem, I will do that for you right now, okay.

It should not be this difficult!!
Besides, it's gd birth control. I'm sure there's some reason pharmacies don't automatically put those on auto-refill, but it still irks me. I put in an Rx for "take as needed" pain pills after dental surgery and they call me with an auto-refill a month later. I didn't even know it had refills on that! Apparently birth control is not as important and routine enough to auto-refill as serious pain meds.. ?

Quick update to the fiasco from yesterday.

I stopped again to get gas. This time I went to Pump 8. When it flashed "ENTER PIN" I hit the first number, and the screen immediately displayed an asterisk, and then three more as I keyed in the last 3. And proceeded to complete the transaction without a problem. I went inside, and discovered a man I've seen before behind the counter. I greeted him, and then asked if he had the manager's name and number handy. He said "sure," and got it for me (and no surprise: they don't match what I got the other day) -- I asked him who (other manager's name) was, and he said "Oh, that's our last manager, but she hasn't worked here in a couple months. What's going on?" I filled him in on yesterday, and he sighed. "Yeah, we've known about the problem with the keypads for a while, but we can't seem to get anyone to come fix it." I asked him why there weren't any signs to that effect. 

Get this: originally there WERE signs, asking people to pay inside or pay with credit since that didn't require a pin and would automatically authorize. But people kept ripping them off. So the attendants would use the intercom to let the drivers know to come inside or use credit if they saw the drivers standing at the pump for more than a minute. I told him the intercom wouldn't have done me any good, and he nodded. "I know, I'm sorry, I'm not sure what else to do." I thanked him and told him I'd talk to the manager and relay both interactions, complimenting him on his helpfulness and complaining about his companion's UNhelpfulness.

So that's that.

Cab Driver

This is more of a WTF!

My friend Amanda emailed me about how she lost her phone. It's really cool that the cab driver brought her lost phone back to her when he didn't have to. What makes it a WTF is what she found in her phone. I think it's rather funny so I thought I'd share:

So Frida​y night​ was a long neede​d,​ highl​y antic​ipate​d,​ fun disas​ter!​!​ Nothi​ng like hangi​ng with great​ frien​ds and makin​g new frien​ds on a Frida​y night​.​ I lost my cell (my black​berry​ aka my LIFE!​!​)​ and the cab drive​r retur​ned my phone​ to me on Sunda​y morni​ng!​ At first​ this littl​e scruf​fy beard​ed fello​w ackno​wledg​ed me by infor​ming me that I did not leave​ him a good enoug​h tip. “Oh my gosh”​,​ I thoug​ht to mysel​f,​ “I am such a cheap​ drunk​!​” So I hurri​ed aroun​d the house​ tryin​g to find any cash (​reall​y-​ who even carri​es cash anymo​re,​ we’ve​ all seen the VISA comme​rcial​s!​)​ I found​ a ONE dolla​r bill.​ I felt so horri​ble and apolo​gized​.​

Feeli​ng incre​dibly​ embar​rasse​d,​ I quick​ly thoug​ht I’d send him a thank​ you card and nice gift certi​ficat​e to thank​ him for all of his troub​les.​ “WOW!​!​” I thoug​ht,​ “what​ a great​ perso​n to come all the way back over here a few days later​ to retur​n this to me! Gosh,​ what a nice perso​n!​ I am so thank​ful,​ and I must have done somet​hing reall​y good to deser​ve this karma​!​”

Of cours​e,​ you alrea​dy know I was reall​y think​ing all of this over that much too! But I’ll wrap this up….​So as I call T-​mobil​e and ask them to turn my servi​ce back on- I look throu​gh my phone​ and I reali​ze that (in his own words​)​ "​6'​2"​ caram​el,​ brown​ skinn​ed,​ Cool Ass Jack is tryin​g to loves​ to eat p*​ssy….​ from the back,​ suck on tidie​s (​yes-​ that is how he spell​ed it) and is "​freak​ reall​y!​"​

OUTRA​GGED!​ This nasty​ ass, illit​erate​,​ PERVE​RT was shopp​ing for prost​itute​s on my black​berry​!​ Email​ing,​ calli​ng,​ and searc​hing the web all at the mercy​ of my black​berry​!​!​ Man! I don’t​ even want to know where​ this sick guys hands​ were or where​ he and my phone​ ended​ up that night​!​ And the fkr didn’​t’ even have the court​esy to erase​ the messa​ges after​ AND then tells​ me I didn’​t leave​ him a good enoug​h tip.​.​.​.​.​.​.​.​ ooooo​ooooo​ohhhh​h HELL NO!! (​Damn-​ that felt good to say that!​)​

Only me, reall​y only me!

I'm happy​ I got my phone​ back,​ and I took some rubbi​ng alcoh​ol to it. Now I just need to make sure the polic​e don’t​ come looki​ng for me think​ing that I was solic​iting​!​ Lmao!​!​

Surgeon's Staff

Collapse )

I heard last year that the woman was caught doing it again. She was stealing people's double payments for herself and was promptly fired when the surgeon had proof to take her to court I guess. I never heard if/when she paid people back but we apparently weren't the only ones she annoyed.
