So, for the second time now, I didn't realize a prescription had been given with no authorized refills until I was out and went to get a refill.

The first time, it was just hrt hormones, so it wasn't a big deal.

This time it's my antidepressant.

And my counselor has left the provider I go through.

So the pharmacy is waiting for a refill authorization and there's no one to give it. I called the doctor and they switched the authorization over to my primary, but I still had to wait for them to actually get authorization. Meanwhile, I ran out two days ago, and I'm already feeling isolated, unwanted and stabby.

A friend who deals with this shit as well suggested I try to get an emergency allotment, so I showered, held my depressive ass together enough to get shaved and dressed and down to the pharmacy.



They can't do an emergency allotment because I changed doctors.

Fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff...

They called the office, got whatever they needed sent electronically, so I'm just waiting now.

Where I can't self-medicate with nicotine. Goddamnit.

Americans are terrified that someone might be trying to get high on something, it's ridiculous sometimes.

As someone who needs to be pretty heavily medicated to be in any way useful to society, I feel your pain...

Everything turned out fine, I got a full refill, and I was able to still make the movie I was going to see with a friend. The only thing that didn't work out was my plan to get coffee between picking up meds and the movie.

But yeah, it's really fucking annoying. Especially since I'm pretty damn sure no one's trying to get high on Cymbalta.

I wouldn't be so sure, a former friend stole my mom's ex-gf's antidepressants and took the whole bottle trying to get high.

It's more of a choker because having a job is pretty important to my life right now. Most normies wouldn't realize what it was.

Tornado. Massive destruction. Was almost fun. Except for all the dead people. I only caught the edge of it. Trees uprooted, power lines crushed. Otherwise okay. Closer to center, total obliteration, flying semi trucks. Toilet paper factory was hit really hard.

Tornadoes scare the holy hell out of me. Glad to hear you got through. The image of the toilet paper factory getting hit hard is making me want to laugh inappropriately though.

I've discovered a weird thing about myself. Whenever someone I know dies, I find myself having imaginary conversations with them on my head for most of the day. Not conversations I wish we would have had; just whatever I happen to be thinking about, even if it never involved the person.

So I spent a good chunk of the day mentally explaining bug fixes to a coworker from my last job.

I had a not good day today. At work, some fat bitch [EDITED] [EDITED] [EDITED] asked for a bag... for her fucking coffee. Who the fuck does that? Anyway, she said she wanted a "green bag", and we don't HAVE green bags. Dunkin' Donuts got brown paper bags and white plastic bags. So, naturally, I was confused, and I ended up giving her a paper bag, and she called me an idiot! The nerve of that fucking [EDITED] bitch. So naturally I told her to go fuck herself, and my boss gets upset at me! I mean, I get that I shouldn't swear at customers, but I'm not the kind of person who can just be insulted and silently take it without doing anything. So anyway, they sent me home early. It's a really good thing I didn't meet that fucking fat old [EDITED] on the way home. I probably would have strangled her.

(I realllly need punch someone.)

I think she wanted one of those reusable cloth things (which are often green, because environmentalism) you can sometimes buy at grocery store checkouts, and obviously had plans to use it for something other than coffee. I have never seen one of those at a fast food joint, though I wouldn't be surprised if you could find branded ones at certain Starbucks locations, because that seems like the sort of thing they would sell.

But yes, some people are just dicks to those working in service jobs because... they can get away with it, pretty much. And since businesses invariably prefer their customers' money over their employees' peace of mind, part of working jobs like that is to be a zen motherfucker when dealing with people who are treating you like a brief vent for whatever the fuck's gone wrong in their day. To be fair, your coworkers and boss probably agree with you that some of your customers are complete assholes that they can't stand, they just don't want you to say that to those customers.

I recommend not to take it personally when interacting with douchebags. Sometimes it's just an off day for them, and if it is their normal behavior then I feel sorry for them. At the end of the day I'm unharmed by their low opinion and they are still miserable.

I have a saying that I remind my coworkers with when they're down after interacting with crazy or rude patients. "Even crazy people deserve to see."

Besides, what do you think someone is looking for when they call you an idiot? They aren't trying to help you help them, they're trying to elicit a reaction.

You can stand up for yourself and make the person feel like a total tool by not giving them the reaction they're wanting. I usually prefer to just crank up the niceness. It will either make them lose their mind, or can shock their system out of douchebaggery especially if there are witnesses.


edit: p.s. maybe?

It is for this reason that I'm a janitor who starts work at five o'clock.

In the years I've had this job, I can count on the fingers of one hand someone has gotten in my face over something.

I mean, I know I'm in the wrong, and (usually) I can just let the assholes go without saying anything, because I've dealt with similar ass-fuckers before, but the words just came out of my mouth before I was aware I was saying them, since my usual reaction to being attacked is to lash right back (not the best character trait, I know). My boss said that I can still come to work on Saturday, which is good, but that if I swear at a customer again, then I'll be fired. Which is fair, I guess.

The hardest part about all this, really, is that just as this whole mess was going down, there was a really cute chick (and about twelve other people) standing in line, and I had to try REALLY hard not to show that I had tears (of rage) in my eyes. I just really do love embarrassing myself in front of strangers.

TIL
That shops have to make a copy of my personal passport if i want to buy more than 100Ä worth of Paysafe cards at once. And if that shop is either not equipped to do that or simply does not want to do that, i am legally FORBIDDEN from buying these more than 100Ä worth of Paysafe cards AT ONCE.
BECAUSE OF TERRORISM / ANTI TERRORISM LAWS!
I can come back later and buy more though.
Which only makes the above all the more infuriatingly stupid.
