A PIG WALKS INTO A PHARMACY

I went to the Pharmacy yesterday and the girl there remembered my name.
She says "Are you picking up, Mr Bulletholes?'
and I said yes, and expressed my astonishment that she knew my name!
The grey haired pharmacist says 'You are one of our favorite customers, Mr Bulletholes!" and the other assistant looks at me and nods her head and smiles.
I think to myself
"What did I do?'
I mean., I'm not in there that much or anything, twice a month, I'm just a regular guy picking up a few prescriptions for the last 4 months...

So I ask everybody there if they know any Pharmacy Jokes.
They all frown and shake their head no. They don't know any Pharmacy jokes.
So I say 'Ya'll ought to make one up!"
and the old man behind the counter looks over the top of his Pharmacist glasses and says
"Like what?"
"Welllllll.....like maybe" I say "like maybe...A pig walks into a Pharmacy and asks "Do you have anything for the flu?"'

Man, its not funny, but the whole place just cracks up, including the lady behind me in a wheelchair with an oxygen tank. They had to fix her Oxygen she was crackin' up so bad.
I still can't figure how come they know me so well down there.

(so where's my ass now, mr bulletholes? i miss it and i'm holding you personally responsible!
AHAHAHHAHaaahhhhhhh)

Damn Cornbread, whats this google reader thing...some kind of spyware?
Who are you....what are you....some kind of Darkwing Duck .lurking in my Drafts?
Is there anything else worth publishing in there, because I gotta tell you my perspective is way off kilter lately.

cornbread hell said...

not spy wear. not spyware, either.

it's just a way i keep up with friends' blogs. i simply add my favorite blogs' urls to it and they show me what you publish.

near as i can figure, turns out when you (or i or anyone) publish a post on blogger to check out what it looks like... it shows up on my reader, but not on your blog long as you're still editing it.

blogger's got a ways t' go before becoming truly user friendly.

(don't you just hate writing an entry and wanting to make some changes without posting it just to view what it actually looks like?)

hey bullet!!

(hell yeah there's more worth publishing. everything!!!)

bulletholes said...

OK...that explains it, and yes, I publish sometimes to get a good visual and see if it seems "Readable" and then put it back to draft.
This one actually started as a comment over at Laughins site, (Thanks Laughin)she wrote a post that reminded me of what transpired at the Pharmacy. I din't think much of it till I actuall wrote it.

Bulletholes, it's a sign of the times.

I've noticed it at Best Buy, Target, grocery stores, Home Depot, the dry cleaners, even the local 7-11. Everybody is suddenly very friendly and almost too helpful. Then I realized, this came from "on high". It's the economy. No one can afford to lose a single customer right now. They've been told to smooch up to our hind ends, within reason. And I've taken full advantage of it...lol.

haaaaaaaaa !!!!

funny what makes a face 'stand out in the crowd'!

i picked up dry cleaning yesterday and the counter lady paused at my last name. i said it for her and she responded, "I didn't want to get it wrong." I said, 'Don't worry. It belongs to my 'X'.' She cracked up laughing.

From now on she will remember me as 'Ms. X', she said !!

You are so charismatic Dad, no wonder people at the grocery store and pharmacy know who you are!

GEWELS said...

Steve? How could they NOT remember you. You're probably either laughing or crying every time you go in there.

Funny joke!

Mother of Invention said...

Well, I imagine you weren't easy to forget! You probably spilled out some comments that were funny and added colour to their day!

Mother of Invention said...

I love that sign at our pharmacy that's a cartoon of a customer saying: I've just run out of estrogen and I have a gun!!

Diabetic Joke: What did the diabetic say when he dropped his hamburger on the floor?

Pass the ketchup!

(How we love our food!)

Hey West Texas!
Even where I work, where the culture has been to not give a damn about the customers problems, we are trying a new (old) way of doing business.
You should hear me answer the phone! I make it sound like I couldn't wait to hear from you and all about your problem, and even if there is nothing in the world I can do for you (no ESPECIALLY of there is nothing in the world I can do for oyu) I make it sound like I am doing everything in the world that I can do for you.
I am on it. Ha!

There you go Red! You got you a support group at the Dry Cleaners! I got lots of support groups all over town.

WB-charismatic? i'm loud, and outgoing, does that translate to Charismatic? You know, deep inside I'm very bashful.

Gewels- Was it really funny? Or just funny? I thought it was stupid, but well timed.

Hi mom! Miss you, you are as big a cornball as me!

GEWELS said...

The funniest jokes are the well-timed ones.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real income.
It's all about how to choose a proper partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
