Warning: Orphans Beware!
In a posting lauding this decision by the Austin, TX, City Council,|
Twisty at Bitch, Ph.D. expresses disdain of the chain:
[...]On second thought, disdain might be too mild. (Note to orphans: Lend money to Twisty, quick! Or stay away from Walgreens. Your life may depend on one or the other.) It seems Twisty dislikes the architecture, stock, employees, dress, and corporate culture of Walgreens. The employees are even rated lower than petty bureaucrats at the DMV.
[...] And the pharmacy clerks--it took no fewer than five of them to bring my drug deal to a conclusion; who knows how many it takes change a light bulb-- are quite the little rays of sunshine, too. Their skin is grey. Their shoulders are hunched. Their expressions are hollow and dull, lacking even the smug spark of pure evil one so often sees flashing in the eyes of petty bureaucrats at the DMV. [...]For what it's worth, I have no opinion on Walgreens, or any other chain drug store. They're just... there. On the other hand, I do agree with the Austin City Council (and Twisty), that Pharmacists should be required to fill legal prescriptions, regardless of personal opinions.
