Prescription errors. Two days ago, I called in for a prescription for a Ventolin inhaler because I noticed that there were no refills on my current one and it was nearly empty. I distinctly said "Ventolin".
My doctor called in an Advair diskus instead of a rescue inhaler. I already have an Advair diskus that isn't even half-way empty yet. My current rescue inhaler is maybe two doses away from being empty. I am not amused. Iím hoping I can stay polite on the phone tomorrow, because after this, their latest mistake, Iím ready to use creative profanity. Well, I wonít go that far, but itís aggravating. This isn't the first mistake they've made, and I am so over being treated like a pest when I call them up to ask them to fix it.
My former GP used a computerised prescription system, where he highlighted the prescription needed, and it printed out the prescription form. Fabulous! Except for the time my ventolin inhaler was needed. I put the script in at the pharmacy, and the pharmacist called me over, saying 'Do you really want this?' I looked at the form, it was for Ventolin injection, rather than the inhaler. For information, the injection is often used for halting premature labour, and since I wasn't in labour or even pregnant, it wasn't really appropriate.
We had a good laugh about it, and he gave me the inhaler anyway (here we can get one inhaler OTC, but the pricing works out differently on occasion, and I can get two inhalers on prescription).
Re Bob the ghost moving things - I live with Boris, who does much the same thing. I generally ask him by name to return the item, turn away and it returns to where I left it. Usually, anyway. Boris has a long, long track record, including opening and closing doors in front of me, on request, hiding things in very unlikely places, sometimes for years, even putting in the occasional appearance, even if just in shadow profile form. A recent psychic visit gave me total chills when she described him before I mentioned anything, and now I have a proper name, but he still answers to Boris.
And fried rice... I usually order the Special Fried Rice - big chunks of chicken, pork, king prawns, it's a meal on it's own.
