    i think she felt sorry for me because she knew i didn't have much of a female wardrobe at the time, and i wore a rather thin jacket that all my then-co-workers would remark on and ask how i wasn't freezing, and i'd always have to explain that it's much warmer than it looks.

    @Morgan ohhhhh is it the prescription part of pharmacies that's foreign to you? i thought you meant the general "walgreens has a bunch of makeup and skincare stuff" part

    @Jacqueline Hyde, it's the sheer size of a pharmacy. You have seemingly entire malls dedicated to what is essentially a dispensary.

    Are these secrets about Women school something us ACME guys should really hear about?
    Quote Link
  • Jacqueline Hyde Jacqueline Hyde:
    @Eugene clearly, they're hardly secret

  • Jacqueline Hyde Jacqueline Hyde:
    @Morgan ahh, i see. our "pharmacy" chains tend to be mini-marts with a pharmacy in back. that's what's odd?

    I have selective hearing, so... I'm mostly understanding 'pharmacy', 'coat', 'cold', 'friend', 'explain', 'jacket'...

    it does amuse me that for some odd legal reason, presumably related to that, rite aid can't call itself rite aid pharmacy anymore. now it's just rite aid, with the word pharmacy underneath and in small print "DEPARTMENT WITHIN"

  • Chase Chase:
    I think Morgan's talking about how CVS is both a pharmacy and a mini mart, yeah.

  • Morgan Morgan:
    What is CVS?

    i guess i didn't realize boots and its ilk weren't as big as cvs/walgreens/rite aid

  • Morgan Morgan:
    No, they're tiny in comparison.

    (I remember what a novelty it was when Walgreens started springing up around Anchorage a few years ago, to the point it made the front page of the news one day.)

    Although healthcare in the United States is more of the responsibility of its citizens and not its government. Perhaps that's why pharmacies are like shopping complexes.

  • Jacqueline Hyde Jacqueline Hyde:
    @Eugene i'm pretty sure it was in the news when walgreens came to my hometown too, though we had two rite aids. they didn't get a cvs till about, oh, six or seven years ago.

    Does a town have to be a certain size before that sort of investment comes in?
