Customers Talk on Their Cell Phones While Getting Prescriptions Filled

Cell Phone Rant: On the Phone at the Pharmacy

Spending an hour waiting for a prescription to be filled is not anyone's idea of fun, but it happens to all of us once in a while. It happened to me recently, and as I sat in the small waiting area, I people-watched the pharmacy line (and read People, of course).
