I. Hate. Antibiotics.
Not trying to spark a war with the medical industry here, I’m just trying to point out that any pills that make your piss smell like Penicillin are NOT pleasant to take.
Now, when I went to pick the antibiotic pills up at the pharmacist the other day I told the guy which drug I wanted based on what I read on the interwebz.
As if that would suddenly make me qualified to diagnose myself…
The pharmacist was kinda impressed by my insights though he did tell me the medicine I requested wouldn’t work and would end up screwing me over in the long run. Instead he suggested another, more potent solution for my sickness.
Plus to make sure I have full confidence in his decision he opened up my medical records and showed me how I came to that same pharmacy all the way back in 2013… with the same illness.. and he gave me that same medicine he was prescribing now… and it fucking worked.
No argument from Jay.
This dude knew his shit.
I handed him over my moolah, got some extra strong painkillers ( Myprodol, it’s called… it better be as strong is Ibuprofen ) and went on my merry way.
Moral of my little medical caper?
Don’t be afraid to exploit your proof and authority….
Especially if it means giving your customer a solution he or she absolutely needs.
Just because somebody has read up loads of “facts” on the interwbz does not make him an expert… at all. Reading an doing are what separate the “armchair expertz” from the “players”, as Sir Gary of Halbert would call them bach in the day.
If that pharmacist was a total douche he would’ve just given me the wrong medicing just because I requested it. However the human in him would not let someone with a face as handsome as mine waste his moolah on the wrong pills.
So he was willing to argue with me until I got the point.
We need moar people like him. ( Now’s your chance to put your left hand on your chest a vow to make sure your customer gets the best value possible. Even if it means arguing with them )
And, if you need me to go through your current email funnel and tell you straight up what you’re doing wrong and how you can fix it… with the brutal honesty that would make “honest” Abraham Lincoln himsel blush then go fill your details in on the following page:
