Want to start a fight with you if you wish them a Happy Holiday.

I call this customer an instructor on how prayer works. He comes in at least twice a week ranting about how vaccinations are a commie plot. He has been making weekly threats for years about calling corporate to inform them they are wrong to promote useless vaccinations.

Me: Have a Happy Holiday and be well
Christian looking hurt and all persecuted: You MEAN Merry Christmas right? When did Walgreens start the war on Christmas?!?
I'm boycotting. What's your name? Well, I am going to let corporate know that I will be taking my business to a place that appreciates and respects Christians. What a shame. This company is really going downhill.
Me: Have a Happy Merry Christmas and be well
Christian: I pray you do have a Merry Christmas on the unemployment line with your secular values.

Do any of you have a nutjob that can top this guy?

Vaccinations ARE actually a joke. I never get the shot and i NEVER get the flu as well as many others. Just a scare tactic to make more money....wash your damn hands more often and stop being a dirty pig and you will have to worry less about being sick.

I had a customer once who lectured me about flouridated water several times. On the 3rd time I saw him I told him I already was well aware of all the science for and against flouridation and that I wasn't going to talk to him anymore about it. He didn't bother me again.

lol @ joey. I never used a rubber and I never got AIDS. That doesn't mean it was a good idea. I think I'll probably stick to what the CDC and the majority of doctors say.

My old customer we use to call the FBI lady. She constantly reminded us that the president was actually kidnapped, and to make sure when our loved ones are kidnapped make sure they are still alive before paying ransom. I was tempted while she was in the store to get on the pa and announce tin foil hats on sale in aisle 11.

I don't think anyone who works at Walgreens can help to make company goals for flu shots or any other immunizations when taking this anti-science viewpoint.
It's people like you who are costing us customers by your beliefs promoted by the likes of Jenny McCarthy. Get your science from scientists, not centerfolds or Oprah or OZ the quack.

Flu shots aren't bs. Medicare would not cover them if they didn't save them money. Just because you haven't gotten the flu does not mean anything. Have you ever read a scientific study? Do you realize how quickly someone would get laughed at with your evidence? Healthy people should also get the flu shot to prevent spreading it to the unhealthy. I bet you most drs, nurses, and pharmacists get their flu shots. The know nothings like you pretend to know what is best even though you have no medical background. Sorry I don't take medical advice from assistant managers at retail stores.

Wow. What a twisted view. I've taken both hands off of the steering wheel a few times to reach for something and never crashed. That doesn't mean that driving with your hands ON the wheel is b.s. It simply means I got lucky. Yes, vaccinations increase profits. They also boost immunity. It's called a win-win.

First of all, have you got a report from Medicare showing where it saved them money? Why should a healthy person get a shot that may or mayNOT work against what the most recent flu strain is. Yes a lot of drs nurses and so forth get the flu shots because they have more exposure than the rest of us. You don't have to take any advise but at least do your own research into the situation. Just because the store or some dr says you should do it doesn't mean you should just jump into it. The question is why has it gone from the young/elderly to now everyone should get the shot. What changed, is there money involved; is it a case of them tracking people? What information do they get from each person that gets a shot. I have not done so but don't they ask for your personal information..........just saying.

Had a woman accuse me of promoting obesity in america for offering her a suggestive sell candy bar.

The smart-ass that is me replied : "On behalf of Walgreens, I sincerely apologize."

My new one is : "Did you know that Hershies have joined the American Dietary Association to help promote healthier eating?"

Boom.

I don't want to wake you up to the obvious, but anytime a person does not end up hospitalized due to a preventable illness it saves everyone money. Hospitalization and risk of death is costly.

[Why should a healthy person get a shot that may or mayNOT work against what the most recent flu strain is.]

Why indeed. Because a seemingly healthy person has no protection from any preventable illness unless they are immunized. The sad thing is infants up to a certain age have no protection at all. The CDC has information that shows you how many people and what age have died and continue to die. Please visit their link. The flu is not the only thing the public needs to worry about with people like you walking around like loaded guns. There are many other preventable diseases that are making comebacks due to this whole new hippie dippy lack of thinking that was promoted by semi celebrities who don't understand how their child got autism. Hint: not from a vaccination.

[Yes a lot of drs nurses and so forth get the flu shots because they have more exposure than the rest of us.]
Really? It's not just because they have more of an education on the matter and would do it anyway?

[You don't have to take any advise but at least do your own research into the situation.]

Provide your research on the "situation"

Just because the store or some dr says you should do it doesn't mean you should just jump into it. The question is why has it gone from the young/elderly to now everyone should get the shot. What changed, is there money involved; is it a case of them tracking people? What information do they get from each person that gets a shot.

The rest is much too fruitcake in one slice for me, I will have to respond in another post once I stop laughing.
