I read the link that LV gave us for Raindrop's blog. I really liked it. It definitely gave me a good look inside retail and reinforced my resolve that I will NEVER work in a pharmacy with a drive-thru. Heh, it reminded me of the good old days (not!) of when I worked for Hollywood Video and Blockbuster video. My last day of work at Blockbuster, I was arguing with a lady about the tax charged to her purchase. Our receipts had two columns: the price of the item and the tax for that item, and then it was all added together at the end. Well, she insisted that she was being overcharged because she KNEW that if you add the tax after each item instead of at the end of the transaction, that the tax was more expensive. So I tried to explain to her that it didn't matter. I even used a calculator, but she kept pulling it out of my hand right before I would press the total button. I guess she didn't want to be proven wrong. Eventually I told her she would either have to pay that amount or leave the store, to which she responded that she wanted to speak to the manager, to which I responded (my favorite line) I AM the manager!!! . So she paid and stormed out. Ugh! Retail sux! Anyway, back to the point of this thread. I thought it might be cool if each of us had our own thread here about our daily lives (not really daily, you could post every couple of weeks or whatever) If you are a current pharm student: What school do you go to? What are you currently learning? Are you happy with you decision? What do you do for fun? What are the othe students at your school like? If you are a pre-pharm: What are you doing to prepare for pharm school? Tell us about your application and interview experiences. What do you think about the PCAT and Pharmcas? If you are a pharmacy grad: Tell us about where you practice. What do you wish you knew then that you know now? Are you happy with your career choice? Do you have as much money and time as you had hoped for when you began? These blogs might be helpful for prospective pharmacy students, and it might just be a good place for you to vent about school/career frustrations. What do you think? Good idea/bad idea? Would you do it?
