'TIS THE SEASON

As much as I love the holidays, the massive influx of patients who rush to fill up their prescriptions in the days leading up to Christmas can leave me feeling a little less

than jolly.

HOLIDAY BONUS

When patients ask for free pills, special discounts, or early refills simply because “it’s the holidays.”

NOT DREAMING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS

Many people may hope for snow on Christmas, but pharmacists who have to work that day sure don’t.

BAH HUMBUG

Doctors, nurses, and patients who are unusually rude or curmud- geonly during the holiday season.
