Wal-Mart


Update as per Megan: lol The name of the local pharmacy is McCook's across from Fordham's Farmhouse.

The more blogs I read, it seems that some puts a title so that when googled their blog will be found. Well this one should be pretty popular. LOL
Why is it that people feel like any answer even a wrong one is better than none at all? I dropped off a prescription for Makayla Monday morning at Wal-mart. I was told give us about 30 minutes. An hour later she tells me were out of that medicine will get more in at 5:00 this afternoon. So I returned around 3:00 on Tuesday. I was asked when I dropped it off and proceeded to tell her that I was told they would have more by 5:00 on Monday. So she checked and then returned and say we won't have anymore until Friday. I said that won't work. Could I please have my prescription back? She said I guess you would be pulling your hair out by then.
I didn't say what I really would have liked to have said.
Why does some medicines come with such a stigma? Just assuming that if your child is on a certain type of medicine, that she must be a monster.
If your going to work in a pharmacy, even if your not the pharmacist. Read up on the medicines and familiarize yourself with it's purpose before making wise cracks about it.
But this person was an older lady and their view on medicines for attention deficit is that the child just needs a good spanking. As in previous blogs I thoroughly researched ADD before putting Makayla on it. I realize now just how frustrating it was for her to sit in school and daydream and not concentrate on her work.
So the next time you decide to ridicule my decision for putting my child on medicine. Be thankful that you are healthy and perfect. Because what goes around comes around.
Also, I took the prescription to a locally owned pharmacy this morning and it took about 15 minutes to get it filled. Nice courteous people, that went out of their way to make sure I was taken care of.
So from here on out they will get my pharmacy business.

  1. That is funny. The same thing happened to me last week when Haley was sick. So...I did like you and took my business elsewhere. I will never return to the Walmart Pharmacy ever again. They have way more customers than what they can handle. And the employees are rude and could care less about "customer satisfaction"
    Hope all is well!

  2. I find the walmart pharmacy to be very incompetant and unprofessional. They got my persciption wrong the first time I took it. Now I always check it before I walk away.

  3. Um, hello! Shouldn't you have mentioned the name of that wonderful pharmacy so that other people who live in the area can take their prescriptions there too?

  4. Now that I read it, my first comment seems kinda rude. But since I'm your daughter and all, I guess I can leave comments like that. But other people who don't know I'm your daughter would probably have thought that I was being rude. Just had to clear that up.

  5. We use a small pharmacy here and it's so much better than the Walmart pharmacy.
