Also today, some guy tried to Jedi mind trick me into thinking that Viagra is not on prescription. Actually said 'I got it down the road, I don't think it's on prescription.'

Hahahahahahahaha no.

So the other day, I have this girl come on for the morning after pill, which is cool, like I don't have any moral objections to supplying it at all. The girl's not a local, kind of a heavy.... German accent? Some sort of nordic something something country. So basically the conversation goes like this:

Girl: I shouldn't have been so stupid. It was an irresponsible thing to do.
Me: Well, sometimes mistakes happen, I wouldn't beat yourself up about it. It's ok.
Girl: The morning after pill shouldn't be so easy to get
Me (in my head): Well, I can make it harder for you, just give that back and walk out that door.
Me (out loud): Really, it's fine. Don't worry about it. It happens to girls sometimes.
Girl: Maybe in Australia *walks out with her medication*

Like ok, I get that you are annoyed that you had sex without a condom. It's true it is stupid and irresponsible, and condoms don't just protect against pregnancy, but also STDs. All valid points, but in no way should you complain about the morning after pill being so easy to get while reaping the benefits of how easy it is go get the pill. Additionally, there is no place in trying to slut shame Australia because we allow timely access to the pill, which I'm almost entirely sure most Western countries do now anyway. I just, my eyebrows basically touched the sky with how high they climbed. I have never heard anyone complain about how easy it is to get a medication before. What the fuck. Yes, yay condoms and safe sex. I love safe sex! I gave endless lectures to my shop girls on the greatness of safe sex. I just don't understand how someone could be like 'ALL YOU BITCHES ARE SLUTS, ALSO THANKS FOR THE MORNING AFTER PILL, BUT NOT ACTUALLY, I MEAN, THAT WAS WAY TOO EASY, SHOULDN'T I LIKE, PROVE THAT I'M REPENTANT AND SHIT AND THAT IT'S ALL MY FAULT FOR HAVING SEX WITHOUT A CONDOM, WHEN IN REALITY THERE IS NO SHAME AND ALSO, IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO BUT WHATEVER.'

Crazy.

So.... Between now and September, when I last posted, I found a new job as a manager for my own pharmacy yay! It's good but somewhat draining since I don't get very much direction in what I'm supposed to do. I've never been a manager before. It's nice though, basically everything I've always done, except now I get paid more.

We've got the methadone program as well, which is interesting. A lot of them are nice enough, trying to sort their lives out and stuff. A lot of them think that it's up to the pharmacist to bend the law to suit them though, which is irritating. Like, yeah it sucks that you want to go home to see your family or whatever, but I'm not going to give you takeaways that you're not entitled to, just because it would be inconvenient for you to drive down to get your dose. Sorry, doesn't work that way.

It's a surprisingly warm day today, given the last couple have been super duper cold. A good day for a nap, which I have just woken up from. Hooray!

I have quit my job as I have so longed to do. I didn't manage to get in any punches to the face but well. I am out and have never felt happier. Job hunting though, job hunting sucks giant hairy balls. Locuming at the moment which is interesting and worth the money if extremely draining. I have a 2.5 hour drive to look forward to early in the morning.

Gosh, today some guy (fat, smelly, probably lives with his mother still. Whatever, I judge so you don't have to) came in talking about a 'sensitive area' being red and sore and how he hasn't been wearing underwear because it hurt too much but it was better now so he was but then also telling me that he doesn't change his underwear every day. WHAT. THE. FUCK. Then he went on about how he thought it might be a sexually transmitted disease rather than a hygiene thing. Urgh I think my face froze in a pained rictus of a polite smile.

Another lady came in asking for the morning after pill. Which is cool. But then she went on to ask about chlymidia and how she keeps getting it from her partner (fuck buddy? I wasn't quite sure what she kept trying to allude to) every time the condom broke because he refused to get treatment. WHAT. THE. FUCK. Am I missing something here? Why the hell would you have sex with someone you know has an STD? Whatever, she said she didn't care about the risk of becoming infertile which I guess is a plus for the human gene pool.

Lol I am such a dweeb. I get really irritated when I stalk other people's journal and they're complaining about their depression meds or whatever and other people in their journal comment and make totally inappropriate suggestions about what to take/what not to take etc. Or they go on to talk some other shit when what the person really needs to do is GO AND TALK TO THEIR PHARMACIST ABOUT MISSING MEDS AND/OR SIDE EFFECTS. I don't know why I get so invested in it when I'm just browsing for fic. Ridiculous.

Like, I understand that people talk about their meds with other people and are all like 'oh no, don't take sertraline, because I was on that and I put on sooooo much weight.' Ok yeah, one of the more common side effects, however, everyone responds differently SO IF YOU ARE CONCERNED, SPEAK TO US ABOUT IT. IT'S NOT LIKE I SPENT 5 YEARS IN UNI JUST SO I COULD UNDERSTAND o i qid prn mdu. I understand that patients have the right to choose blah blah but to be honest, sometimes patients are dumb shits. Then again, sometimes doctors are dumb shits (sorry twelveeyes and reburta, but I once got a drug chart that said 'bisphosphonate i d' as one of the simplest examples).

I don't really have a point, I thought I'd just rage for a little bit. I mean, I don't like to negate a patient's bad experience with drugs, but I just want them to understand that drugs cause different things in different people. But whatever, if they knew how drugs worked they'd be pharmacists and not lawyers or some shit.

Back from America. Everything is so cheap over there. Met cousins and family I haven't seen in literally 20 years. Mum keeps forgetting hom much Vietnamese I understand because I'm now privy to a fair amount of family scandel which I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to know.

Want to quit my job, or at least get in one free punch to the face. Mrgh.

So basically today was a total waste of a day off. Had to watch the electrician install all the lights in the new place. He was so tall I came up to his elbow. I mean, who needs to be that tall? He hit his head on the door frame. He could change the light bulbs in the chandelier (attached to the 3.3 meter ceiling) without a ladder. He was like Gandalf when he's in Bilbo's house. He took all day basically and then all these cockatoos crapped all over my car. Bastards.

Anyway, I just wanted to share with you guys that one of my life goals is to go to Africa on safari. It'd be cool to see all the animals and stuff, but the real reason is so that I can watch the sun rise and play Circle of Life and then pretend to be David Attenborough. Not even lying a little bit.
