New record ...

464 prescriptions filled on the day after Labor Day. Few people know this but the two busiest days in pharmacies are the days after Labor Day and Memorial Day. So if you like quick and snappy service ... don't show up at the counter on those days.

I hope I didn't make any mistakes yesterday, but I'm sure I did. In a 10 hour work day, that's 1.54 prescriptions every two minutes.

Remember that episode on "I Love Lucy," when she got a job in a chocolate factory? That's what pharmacy is like now, with prescriptions coming down the belt instead of chocolate. I do seem to remember she started to eat the ones she couldn't get into the box ...
