    Do you think this is WVU long lost father? It is bad out there but is it really this bad? (I am not refering to the blog but the entry for Saturday January 3rd)

    Gee, I don't know M. PharmD; you are the pharmacist. What say you? What would your advice be to Name Withheld and us?

    I say work in a retail pharmacy. I dont mean once a week. I mean five days a week for 3 months (the whole summer) and then ask yourself, "is the money worth it?".

    Interestingly, the Drug Nazi (as he used to be known) lived in Southeastern Appalachian Ohio very, very close to the part of WV I grew up in. He then graduated from Ohio Northern and moved out west. He actually COULD BE my father.

    No way dude the summer is the easy time. Work full time in a retail pharmacy for November,December and January then ask yourself if the money and sign on bonus is worth it.

    This guy is saying retail has turned him into a anti-social, alcohlic wreck. He lost his wife and has no life all because of retail pharmacy. **** is bad but not that bad....of course I think he works at CVS so it probably is that bad for him....we are all screwed.

    I did too, was about to give condolences and everything, also wondered how Mountain would know. Good thing it gives first few lines of thread before clicking.
