This is a question for the pharmacists on here. When people ask you what you do for a living and you answer them, how do they respond?
so far people seem super impressed that I'm in pharmacy school. My dog had surgery last summer and when I was discussing details of how it went with the surgeon he wanted to talk more about pharmacy school than my dog's duodenum. That actually annoyed me a bit but I have the utmost respect for vets and I was glad to see he felt the same way about pharmacy too
People are usually really impressed.
Last weekend I had someone ask what I did and I told them I was a pharmacist and they gave me a wierd look and said "a real pharmacist?" Then my buddy had to put his 2 cents in and say I had a doctorate. That always surprises people. I actually hate when people bring that up, they seem to change their perception of you.
