The waiting room was empty when we got there, so she was called back in just a few minutes. In the 40 minutes or so I was waiting for her about 10 patients came in. All minorities and all with children. The most striking was a young Hispanic couple with three kids,including one in a car carrier,and she was about six months pregnant. While they and the baby went back they left the other two,both under five years old,unattended,playing and chattering in Spanish. Maybe they didn’t get the memo…they only need one kid for an anchor baby. Unless they found out the more kids you have the bigger your refund from the taxes you didn’t pay.
DW got a prescription for a medication that couldn’t be called in initially,it had to be presented in person. This was a true test of my devotion to my beloved child bride. Noon,on a Friday,the day after the EBT cards get their money put on them. We caught a tremendous break in that there was a car backing out of the last available handicapped parking spot and I caught another when I found an electric cart outside the Subway inside the store. Some old guy started cussing,but all’s fair in love and war…and this was war.(Kidding,I just found the cart). You can’t imagine what it’s like trying to maneuver an electric cart through the pharmacy when there are people clogging every aisle. As far as the eye could see,there were shopping carts heaped full of junk,the most popular item being the industrial-sized boxes of disposable diapers. Nearly everyone had them.
While we were waiting for them to fill her meds we had lunch. Then she went back to get her script and I went after a couple grocery items. While I waited for her,two older black ladies were standing near the entrance,one with a big O2 tank like I used to use. I offered her my cart,which she gratefully accepted. When we got to the parking lot there were 3…count ’em…3 cars with handicapped plaquards waiting for one car in the opposite aisle to pull out. DW tapped on the window of the old ladies’ car that was directly behind us that we were leaving right away,so she backed up and let us out. Those of you who are not handicapped have no idea how fierce the competition is,especially with the lucrative business of lawyers getting people on disability when they’re too young for social security and don’t qualify for unemployment.
It’s 2pm and we’re meeting D#1 and her hubby at our favorite Italian restaurant,but I got my machine fixed by remote yesterday and it’s working much better. He did some deep scans that took over 5 hours and removed a lot of infected files and it’s running much better. Plus I haven’t posted much in awhile.
