Rant to the ‘I shall underachieve, but I shall earn money’ kids

You’d think that people in their second year of pharmacy would take the course a bit seriously. And you’d be wrong.

This is a rant at those pharmacy students who believe that pharmacy is an easy walk in the park. That all you need to do is work retail and then you’ll earn loads, and not need to know anything. How the hell will the public’s opinion of pharmacists change if we support the idea that we’re just bottle labellers.

It’s possibly due to my own experiences, views and beliefs that pharmacy is a difficult area. Then again, I have an interest in the hospital aspect of it, so that would be more complex… even if the wage was significantly less.

To end. All you idiot pharmacy students who are hopelessly unaware that your job does carry responsibility – get real, or get out.


“I’m a naturist, there’s no point in all these non-natural ways”

Whilst talking about how pacemakers can be affected by external waves…

“Eh, I don’t see the point in pacemakers. It’s silly, there’s a perfectly fine one in the heart.”

PG “Clearly not, or else it wouldn’t be fitted”

“But still. I guess you could say I’m a naturist. Natural is better than everything else. Same with all these drugs, they’re not natural.

PG “You’re a naturist?! Hah. Besides, nature can kill. Drugs and pacemakers can save lives.”

“Oh… yeah.”

Pharmacy students… there’s hope… ? We might be seeing a naturist’s pharmacy soon enough, where all that is worn is a labcoat. And specs.
