Pet Peeves (August 2019)

AUGUST 22, 2019
Not Child's Play
People calling low-dose aspirin "baby aspirin." Aspirin should never be used in babies or children younger than 12, because of the risk of Reye syndrome.

Glued to the Seat
I hate people who hog the only chair in the pharmacy section, staying seated after they are scheduled to move on.

Food Faux Pas
I abhor the employee food refrigerator full of half-full cartons of spoiled milk, salad dressings well beyond their expiration date, and Tupperware containers full of moldy crap.

Burn Baby Burn
I completely lose it when a pharmacy staff member puts popcorn in the microwave oven, leaves it unattended, and it burns.
