UNSUPERVISED CHILDREN.
When a patient lets his kids run around the pharmacy unsupervised.

SORRY I ASKED.
Pharmacy Technician: “Any questions for the pharmacist?” Customer: “No. I can read.”

UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS.
Cut your tech hours and be sure to give more vaccinations! Also, you still have to run the drive-thru. What do you mean you don’t have time to do medication therapy management? You said yourself you wanted to expand your clinical role!

UNFAIR COMPENSATION.
I can’t understand why companies have contracts with insurance companies that don’t compensate fairly. I don’t need busy work.
