checking for a fever

"I already got my ten'chur!" Little Princess said with a scowl, upon waking from a late afternoon nap.

at the pharmacy

I think I need to protect the pharmacy because I'm not sure if this customer experience was above and beyond, or if it was right, so I will not reveal the name.

On Monday I had to get a refill of my ADHD medicine, and the way you have to do it is go to the doctor, get the written prescription and take it to the pharmacy to get it filled. I think it has something to do with it being an amphetamine, and they don't want just anyone to get it. It can be an annoying process, but it has to be done. I went to the pharmacy to get the prescription filled and had to wait because the girl said that the pharmacist was on her lunch break, and that's cool I can just shop around the store. Well, I had Little Princess with me so it got to be pretty annoying trying to keep up with her and keep her quiet, and wait on the medicine. When it got to the time when my meds are ready I was just ready to go.

Yesterday morning, on Tuesday, I opened my medicine bottle to take my daily pill and they didn't look right, they were blue instead of orange, so I was scared to take them. I knew that I would have to return them to the pharmacy and get the correct prescription, but I was really scared to, what if I looked like a drug seeker? I knew that the pharmacy opened at 9, so I got myself and LP ready and headed off to get this whole mess straightened out. I still had the original packaging and receipt, so I felt like I should be safe, if they didn't fill it then I may have to go to my doctor's office and get another prescription, oh what a nightmare I was sure this was going to take all day.

We got to the store and to the pharmacy to where I waited my turn to talk to the pharmacist and I gave her the whole bag with the receipt, and the pills and the patient education thing, and I told her that I got these yesterday, but they aren't orange like they should be, and she took them from me and said, "I'll get this figured out for you, no problem." Little Princess then had to use the potty, so I told the pharmacist that I'll be right back, and she even showed me a restroom that was right next to the pharmacy so I didn't have to go to the front of the store. We eventually get back to the pharmacy counter, and the pharmacist gave me the bag with the correct medicine, she appologized for the mistake (apparently they have a new intern), and she credited me the whole amount for the medicine!

Great customer service, that's all I'm after. :)

funny conversation

A conversation between me and Little Princess, this morning.

Little Princess: "I want something to drink."
Me: "Do you want some milk?"
Little Princess: "yeah, but I don't want chocolate in it"
me: "so you just want plain milk?"
Little Princess: "Yeah, just plain cold milk on a sunny day." :)

It is about the experience.

I have found a great store, Aldi. I am very glad I was told about this great find, the milk is $1.49 per gallon, and they have a lot of other things there, including toys, interiors, and of course groceries. The store is pretty small, so once you get past that, it's awesome. I also appreciate that you have to buy the bags to put your groceries in, because that way I remember to bring my own. Also, you have to pay a quarter to get a cart out of the cart area, but once you put it back, you get your quarter back. I think this is great idea because there aren't carts left all over the parking lot, like at other stores. I drove home from shopping at this store today, just feeling so good about my whole experience there. :) Great smiles too because I got a chuck roast there for only $7.68, and it is cooking in the crock pot, I love crock pot days. :)

I wonder if people realize that when they have stuff on their cars that represent themselves to a specific group; like a specific SEC team, or political party, or even something about their own stance on something like, say, a fish that says "Truth" is eating another fish that says "Darwin," and then they drive like assholes, I will be the one that thinks all people with that symbol or sign on their car are assholes. As people we should be nice to each other, even when we feel a sense of annonomity in our cars, especially if we want to represent a political group or advertise a religious belief.

makes me proud

I was approached last night by a lady in our church who said that little princess was so sweet to the other kids, and both princesses play well with others. That really makes me feel good. I try to lead by example, not just by what I say, and I feel like that will lead my kids to treat others with kindness.
