Jagged Little Pill Bottles
I absolutely HATE when coworkers open a new bottle of medication, punch a hole in the foil seal, count out part of it, leave the jagged foil pieces, and recap and reshelve it. 

Urgent Expectation
A patient comes in just after visiting an urgent care, expecting the prescription to be ready.

Missed Opportunity
It drives me crazy when a patient comes in to pick up a prescription for a chronic renewed opioid, and they are asked to sign a pad to document "I decline counseling."

Buyer Beware
There is very little regulation regarding the preparation or standardization of herbal remedies, as they are considered dietary supplements.
