I'm almost 60, but resent a 19 Yr old kid saying, Oh, you will have to stand over there. or not today,tomorrow,cause the Co won't pay for you to get the meds a day early.-OK, I'll pay cash instead because you are closed tomorrow and I prefer not to drive another 12 miles for allowing me to have less next month as you aren't open. Oh- can you pronounce trimethaprim/sulfamethathoxazo le?Please tell me what he Mgr. says as I grow frustrated that your system is ineffective,superfluous,caprec ious,over regulated... BLAH, BLAH..AD NEAUASEUM
