    I know a couple CVS pharmacists who where diapers since they don't have time to go to the restroom during those long shifts. I also know an overnight pharmacist who does it.

    Would you consider wearing a diaper to work?

    I personally like protective pads be cause there not as bulky:smuggrin: and I don't urinate as much because I don't have time to drink anything either.

    When I was in Mexico I would sit down at a bar, whip it out, start peeing, order a drink, finish up, take my beer and go. I'd like to think my drunk Mexico days were less dignifying than my future profession, guess not!

    Whaat! I hope not serious.
    Just go to the damn bathroom. You can find time. Just make sure there's a tech behind the counter. For overnight, store can be closed for a few minutes if needed. If the PDM shows up, too bad. If they fire you for going to the bathroom, sue them.

    This has to be a joke. NO MATTER how busy it is, walk away.

    I found that if I wear the diaper on the outside I get no customers. Then I can use the restroom whenever I want.

    I don't think I could concentrate on work if I knew that I was walking around with a soiled diaper.

    The day my job doesn't allow me to go to the bathroom like an adult is the day I quit.

    No need for a diaper - just avoid drinking, thus putting yourself in an oliguric state. Then towards the end of your shift, chug a Gatoraid (or in a pinch, a Pedialyte) to get your 'lytes and renal function back in order.

    I'd imagine it would be arkward at first but that you would eventually get used to it.

    Agreed, I'd rather be unemployed then work in those type of conditions.

    A catheter and bag works much better. You can get the bags that strap to your leg. No one will be the wiser! You have to be inventive to make it throught those 14 hour CVS shifts with 2 techs and 1000 scripts.

    Thats awesome! CVS could start giving these away at school job fairs. Instead of CVS pens, highlighters and note pads they could give students the CVS-foley bags! Great marketing tool. Come work for the pharmacy who cares about you by giving you a free catheter so you do not have to waste time going to the bathroom on your understaffed 14 hour shifts.

    Dude you seem a little angry. I would be too if I worked for CVS....Maybe its time to change your diaper? You can get a bad rash if you leave it on longer than 14 hours. I wouldn't suggest sleeping in it.

    I had worked a couple 12 hour shifts & forgot to go to the restroom because we were extremely busy. That happend during my first year working retail. The night pharmacists I know would just go when they need to, leaving the pharmacy for a few minutes. This is my 3rd year working as a retail pharmacist, the longest I would wait is 45 minutes to an hour to finish things that are urgent. If I have 5 minutes, I would just run to the restroom without hesitating. I'm afraid if I keep holding, I'm going to develop some kind of urinary/kidney problems one of these days :luck:

    I'm sorry but I have to bump this up because it makes me :rofl: :rofl: almost uncontrollably. Can you screw up your bladder pretty badly if you hold your pee for 12 hours? How much can your detrusor muscle take?

    So, if you DON'T wear the diaper, you will end up wearing the diaper later in life.

    The truck will not be here until the first of next week....

    I ordered the special, extra strength ones with poop guard. A little extra but well worth it!!

    That way I can take care of everything and not have to hold it.

    We had a class on it in lab.

    I wear pads 6 or 7 days a month, whether I'm working or not. I'm also approaching an age where I probably won't have to do that much longer. :p

    When I took a retail job in 1999, one of my friends suggested an indwelling catheter with a leg bag. That wasn't necessary, because it was a medium-volume store with a bathroom right there in the pharmacy. :thumbup:
