There was not an emergency otherwise the store could have looked into it.
At least the lady was honest with her dosage left.
If she faked her pain, that would have made the case worse.
Such people overshadow the ones who have some real emergency.
Such situations also occur and it is pharmacists’ duty to help.
Do you agree? In my experience, I think it’s true.
