This month's pet peeves include impatient patients, those who expect pharmacists to be mind readers, and more.

Ringing the drive-through call button before the car even stops moving. Or hitting the call button from the second lane when you clearly see the tech helping lane 1.

MEDICATIONS MIND READER: When the customer says, "It's your job to know what I'm taking."

CALL ME MAYBE (LATER): When people are on their phone instead of reading the questions on the pin pad and it takes all day.

MESSY COWORKERS: Techs not cleaning up after themselves and not restocking at the end of the night.
