A little background. At my office I am in charge of recording the answering machine message. I do this twice a day. Once at lunch, and once before I leave. I press a button, the machine beeps and I begin my message... they all begin the same way - "Thank you for calling Dr. Vander Vliet's office...."
More background. For 21 years I've been calling prescriptions into pharmacies for my patients. I've never had any issues. Well, except that one time that I had to call one in for a patient with the last name of Dick. And yes - I burst into giggles while on the phone with the pharmacy.
SO... the other day I had to call the pharmacy, and most have the option to leave the prescription info on an answering machine.
I listen, I hear the beep and guess what comes out of my mouth?
Yep. "Thank you for calling ..."
That wasn't the worst part.
The next day I did it AGAIN with another pharmacy. Only this time... MORE came out of my mouth.
So there was no hiding. I just giggled my way through the prescription. I will NEVER show my face in RiteAid again. Just so you know...
