For today’s Something on Sunday, I want to give a shout-out to my pharmacist, Albert. The past couple of times I went to my neighborhood CVS (I know) to get my prescription filled they didn’t have it. And the last time I went, I said to Albert, I said, “You never have it.” I was clearly very disappointed in him and the store and life in general.
He apologized (again) and sent my refill over to another CVS (again).
So yesterday, I had on my to-do list to call the other CVS to get my refill sent to my neighborhood CVS. And this time I was doing it a week in advance to give them time to get it together.
Before I could call, I got a text from my neighborhood CVS saying my prescription was ready. This surprised me because I don’t have any of my prescriptions on autofill (autofill stresses me out), but then I remembered I probably just forgot to tell them to opt me out of it.
But no! When I went into the store, Albert said, “Hi, Ms. [LastName]. It’s ready!” (Yes, Albert knows me by name and by sight. This isn’t even the best part, yet.)
When the tech handed me the prescription, I let out a little gasp of delight. It turns out Albert had ordered my refill for me IN ADVANCE, and he also gave me a THREE-MONTH refill instead of a one-month one, AND he said that they have extra on the shelf now, so they’ll be ready for when I come back.
Albert rocks, y’all. May you all find a pharmacist like Albert.
