When a man arrived home from work, he saw his wife was crying.
“It’s the pharmacist,” she said. “I called him for advice, and he insulted me.”
The man jumped in his car and drove to the pharmacy and demand an apology.
He introduced himself as the husband of the woman the pharmacist had insulted over the phone earlier that day.
“Now, just a minute – listen to my side of it, the pharmacist explained. “This morning the alarm failed to go off, so I was late getting up. I went without breakfast and hurried out to the car, but I’ll be darned if I didn’t lock the house with both house and car keys inside. I had to break a window to get my keys. Driving a little too fast, I got a speeding ticket. Then, about three blocks from the store, I had a flat tire."
He said that when he finally got to the store, there was a bunch of people waiting for the pharmacy to open. The pharmacist opened the store and started waiting on these people, as the phone rang non-stop.
The pharmacist broke a roll of nickels against the cash register drawer to make change and they fell all over the floor. He got down on my hands and knees to pick up the nickels as the phone was still ringing. When he got up to answer the phone, he cracked his head on the open cash drawer, which made him stagger back against a showcase with a batch of perfume bottles on it, and half of them hit the floor and broke.
The pharmacist said he was finally able to answer the phone. It was the man’s wife and she asked how to use a rectal thermometer.
“Well, mister, I told her!!!”
