I'm a hit with women over 40...

I'm not so great with girls my age, but I could be cleaning up with women over 40 on two or more antidepressants. A couple times a week I have some middle aged women (never one of those hot middle aged women though) tell me that I'm "so cute," or I'm "such a sweetheart." One even told me that if she was 20 years younger, she'd marry me.

Perhaps all the antidepressants mixed with xanax is clouding their judgment just a little bit, but if that was the case, why can't some young, hot, crazy chick tell me I'm cute? It's always the way-over-the-hill ones. Actually, I know the answer to that question: There are no hot, young chicks who need any help from a pharmacist. They come in, pick up their prescriptions, and leave without any complications or questions asked.

Maybe I should just go with it though. I'll just wait until some wealthy, well-connected, not entirely unattractive older women tells me I'm cute, and then I'll flirt back. You know... flash a little smile, say something witty all the while solving her insurance problem. That could be my ticket out of this profession.

Nah.... I'd probably be her weekend fling, something to tell her Bridge club about. Oh well... I'll just wait until I'm 40 to get with the 40+ women. Of course, that's only if my admirers aren't 60 at that time.

You may be a hit with the younger ones too. Younger women tend to be less forward. Confidence builds as you get older. Post a pic, so we can tell you whether you are "hot or not"

My theory is that I look cute to them because I look almost too young to be a pharmacist. Plus, I tend to be well-dressed at work. The combination of vicodin, xanax, and several antidepressants probably has something to do with it too. Otherwise, I'm not hot.

Wont believe it until I see it.

No pics from me. I'm trying to stay anonymous here.

That bad? Hehe.

Well, with reference to your last paragraph, probably it'll be the reverse when you reach 40. And even if 60+ women like you, they'll probably say: you're just like my son!

Thank you for the advice. Now I kind of feel bad joking about that (my comment above). Just curious, how old are you? I don't know which country you're from, but I'm guessing US, which means you have a PharmD?

What you're doing is good. It shows that you really care. People have the confidence to put their trust in pharmacists. Showing that you care is actually the most important thing. When people like you, they'll come back to you the next time.

So far, I haven't come across any 'bad' pharmacists, or probably I haven't been out in the working world long enough to know. I have only been to hospital pharmacies for training, but haven't had the taste of retail yet. Well, I will, after I graduate, and in the future years to come.

For better of worse (and currently we're definitely more on the worse side) I'm from the US.

Yes, I have my PharmD. I don't know what the PharmD means (or if it even exists) in other countries, but here, it doesn't mean a whole lot (as I've ranted about in a previous post). It's just the entry level degree, and it seems to do nothing but give new pharmacists a big head. I've been licensed for a year, and since I went straight from high school directly into the pre-pharmacy curriculum, I'll let you do the math on my age.

Anyway... don't feel bad about making a joke or even blasting me for voicing an opinion you don't agree with. It's the internet. If you can't speak your mind here, you can't do it anywhere.

Ah, just like what our lecturers told us, pharmacy students in US and UK have a PharmD. We're only getting a BPharm (Hons.). Anyway, I don't know how the system works in US, so I really can't guess your age.

Over here, after graduating, we have to serve the government for 4 years (as in working in government hospitals), before we get to be registered pharmacists. I'm not sure about other countries.

Talking about freedom of speech, I think I might have a bit of a problem. I recently found out that some of our lecturers are reading our blogs! He could even remember what I wrote in a post dated quite some time back. Now I really have to think twice before posting anything. And so, I'm thinking of switching to another webhosting service, AND remain anonymous, if possible.

I'm 25.

I'm also worried about someone I know reading my blog. That's why I'm trying to remain as anonymous as possible. No pictures, no mention of what company I work for or where I live, no real names, etc.
