Bieber is Canadian.

Honey Boo Boo, unfortunately, is all entirely America's fault.

Drugstores aren't what they used to be. A few years ago I tried to get some sterile water to cleanse a wound and they looked at me funny like I was from Mars. They handed me a spray bottle of crap. I told them I needed to flush a wound and they said "sorry I guess we can't help you then". All the other crap in the store is useless if one can't get first-aid supplies anymore.

For us brits, a drug store is what or is supposed to be what?
Where do you get prescription drugs and medicines from ? FYI our chemists also have more space taken over with personal products, and a tiny counter for prescriptions, My why rant is they have a sign up saying that it may take approx. 10 -15 mins to process the script in busy times. I've been the first in, four staff plus the pharmacist, all talking about nonsense none concentrating on my script, took 10 mins I watched, they had the box off the shelf in 30 seconds, but needed to wait for it to be checked by the pharmacist, who then called out my name, and asked my address for security reasons to an empty shop.....WHY

Quite right Bieber is Canadian my mistake and Honey Boo Boo is just an obnoxious brat. We inflicted the Sex Pistols on you as well not to mention this year One Direction-serves you right for springing that Snoop Dogg chap, Lady Gaga and Jay-Z on us like that

I have to pick up prescriptions from our chemist frequently but thank goodness all ours are free-parents over age of paying and me, well I was diagnosed type II diabetic last September so I need a lot of pills. I have to wait around 10mins too but I think this because they also spend time printing out labels to put on the boxes, bottles etc and the reason they ask for your postcode or address, well you could be anyone or trying to pick up someone elses pills so if you don't know that information you ain't getting them. Presumably if you are a regular to the chemist/pharmacy they will get to know your face and know you are genuine. I also think it is the LAW to do this security check as they don't want to be liable for giving pills to minors or drug addicts. Don't forget that some stores/shops like BOOTS and SUPERDRUG also have their own counters to take prescriptions. I had one for a foot spray and had to go to a larger BOOTS(chemist had some dispute with the distributors/ suppliers) in a shopping centre and they filled it for me-again they asked for information, took time with the label and presumably checked via computer that I was who I said I was.

For certain drugs yes, this stands to reason. But I rather think that anyone seeking a joy ride off my blood pressure medication (or your foot spray for that matter) will be sorely disappointed.

Next up in the parade of puzzlement: The automatic data collection device that doesn’t collect data.

These are put in place by your Bank, Credit Card company, Cable TV provider etc. who make a big stink about how much they care about you, the “customer” when in reality they give less than a dried heap of parrot droppings about you.

Ring..ring..ring…

Pre-recorded perky female voice: Hi! Welcome to our automated data collection service. You will be connected to a customer service representative after you provide us the following information. Please enter your account number.

HH: Beep beep beepety beep etc.

PRPFV: Please enter your PIN number.

HH: Beep, beep, beepety etc.

PRPFV: Please enter the last four digits of your social security number.

HH: Beep , beep, beep beep.

PRPFV: Please enter the postal code where you receive your statement.

HH: Beep beep beep etc.

PRPFV: Thank you. You will now be connected to a customer service representative.

(musical interlude lasting from 5 to 20 minutes)

HI! Whom am I speaking with?

HH: Hugo Hackenbush.

Them: Thank you Mr. Hackenbush. May I have your account number?

Whereupon she asks me every single question I just entered into their “smart data collection system”!

Why…why…why…

I am able too answer that one mate

My mates and I from time too time have an eating competition, well actually not much anymore.

Our competitions were only who can eat the most, not fastest,
The reason for them was simple, whenever we had them the girls were around, BBQ's, Mid priced restaurants etc... The plan was generally too gross out the wives and girlfriends just so they didn't want too speak too us after calling us pigs... was a good way of not getting interrupted with girl crap during bloke talk Plus the factor of just wanting too prove too mates you're better at them at being a caveman

And on occasion, sometimes you'd suggest a competition with no intention of winning, just so one or more of your mates will overdo it and he'll feel real bad later on for eatin' too much, only they don't know that was your plan That's what mates are for

I've used my debit card for purchases and I swipe the card, enter my PIN, decline a cash-back offer and THEN it will ask if I authorize the $6.89 purchase. Why...why...why?

Greenman, thanks for your reply. I fully understand the security issues etc you mention, my point was that as they opened for the day I went in (they even said good morning with a genuine tone) . I was the only customer, but apart from the talking they were doing creating the delay, that even as the only person to have gone in that morning, and remained there they still shouted out my name, and checked my address. I Used to be on first name terms with the previous pharmacist, and everything was done efficiently and quietly. Nowadays they seem (as do the receptionists at my GP's surgery) be quite happy to tell everybody in the building who you are where you live and what treatment you are getting.

I once took a script for a neighbour who has difficulty walking. I (being a gentleman) didn't look at the detail of the script, none of my business. I filled in the back to say that I was not the patient, the patient is over 65 etc etc. The pharmacist announced from the rear doorway to the whole shop, that they didn't have the Vaginal suppositories prescribed, would a hormone cream do instead.... a) I haven't got one of them Vagy thingies so how the hell do I know, and b) oh, what's the point ...


Finally this chemist has a room for private consultations with the pharmacist. If you are male (as I am) they insist on taking in a chaperone in with them (as they are female) You can take one in with you as well if you like. The room however is 4' by 3' rather like a toilet cubicle. and you can here everything said in there from the shop anyway. WHY WHY WHY bother

Red face Maybe I'm just an idiot

There's a Federal election in my neck of the woods in a little over two weeks
Now, As in most free countries the 2 major opposing clowns have televised debates.

We has one tonight, Now and and we all know that politicians are full of shit, It's like a sewage drain was opened when they speak.

So why do we bother listening and watching like I did tonight
I was for a while transfixed at listening too bullshit

Why, Umm, Too quote the thread starter "Why Why Why "
