Bursting the Bubble

We spend so much time in the pharmacy 'bubble' that it helps to be reminded we're not alone. While waiting in the optometrist's office today I overheard all of the following going on at the reception desk:

-- People without their insurance cards
-- People who were 1/2 hour late for their appointment and wanting to "still get in."
-- People who were completely OUT of contacts and needed the receptionist to come up
with some for them.
-- People bitching about prices.
-- People bitching about their insurance.
-- People who needed everyone to hurry up for them because they were on the way to

Ahh, healthcare. It's everywhere you wanna be.

I am a bad person...the first thought in my mind was, well thank goodness those people aren't just at the pharmacy!

Nope. They are everywhere. They are at my office, too. Every freakin' day.
