Hello Forkers in December

Posted: 20/12/2017 at 09:10

Community Pharmacy  at Christmas.   Stress all round. Will we make the silly target set by Head Office? How many will come in on xmas eve having run out of tablets and the doctors are shut? ( We used to run a sweep on that) . Phone calls from those who must have a months supply of tablets, having had a months supply last week. Will the wholesalers be out of cough mixture/ flu remedies just as the epidemic reaches a peak. ? Rota on xmas day for the person who forgot to get the baby milk in when he was  doing the xmas food shop.  Rota on boxing day for indigestion remedies.  Can the delivery driver drop off something to the farm,? they can't get out in their tractor due to snow. Get the company helicopter out!!! Pull the plug on the phone.

Someone get me a large coffee and a valium sandwich.

Do I miss it after 40 years? No.

I would plan a nice quiet Christmas, except 18 other members of my family won't let me.

A plea from all those left behind. If your life depends on certain medication, please check you have enough to last until  Jan 2nd. If not, sort it out Today. The manufacturers shut down tomorrow until new year.

Everyone else and those who are already organised, have a Happy Christmas.

I couldn't agree more.  Too many chiefs, not enough Indians , as my mother would say.

What are you hoping Santa will bring you?

Well just to be different, I don't want Hostas. I  am hoping Santa delivers the Roscoeas on order from Rare plants in wrexham.

Also my car died last week. I think it would like a new starter motor for xmas.
