Double Header: "True Story of Lousy Customer Service" & "True Story of Smart Assitude"

I am in line at the "Drop Prescriptions Off Here" counter of my local drugstore and I have a prescription in my hand. I reach the front of the line.

I smile pleasantly at the girl, say "Hi," and slide the prescription across the counter.

She looks at me, smacking a wad of gum the size of my head noisily, and says, "What can I do for you?"

I look down at the prescription. I look back up at her. She's still staring at me, head tilted.

I say, "I'm going to an awards dinner, and I'd like to have a tuxedo custom made. But it's next weekend. Is it too late?"

She stares at me a moment more. Then: "This is a pharmacy."

You can't make this stuff up.
