V is for Viagra

Ahh, Viagra. The ongoing pharmacy joke. I'm pretty sure none of you need "information" about it, so I'll give you my favorite Viagra story from the pharmacy.

I was still a pharmacy student and working hard to do the best consult with each patient that I could. I would diligently go over how to take their meds, what it was for, and what to expect.

A man came through drive thru for his Viagra. I came over with my pearly white lab coat and "pharmacy student" name tag and without any embarrassment, went through his whole Viagra consult.

The man listened and waited until I was done. Then he said he had taken the med before and was very concerned about one side effect and asked if I knew anything about it. He'd being experiencing a stiff neck.

I muted the microphone and went to my textbooks and references to look up the incidence of getting a stiff neck while taking Viagra. After several minutes, and on finding nothing, I looked around the pharmacy. Everyone was smirking at me. I went back and turned on the drive-through mic and the man was absolutely rolling laughing at me.

Ahh, I got it. "Stiff" neck - very funny.

The whole pharmacy thought so as well.

To be young and gullible again...at least I'm still blonde :)
