Where's Robbo?

Sorry for the light posting, friends. Mr. Sinus Infection caught up with me and drove a pair of hot skewers into my ears. But I actually went to the docs this morning (something I almost never do) and am now stocked up on antibiotics n' stuff, so hopefully I'll kick it in pretty short order.

In the meantime, I leave you with this question: Do grocery store pharmacies deliberately delay filling your prescription in the hope that you'll wander around the aisles and buy more stuff, or does it just work out that way?

Hate to tell ya, man, but my local Safeway pharmacy takes about 10 minutes to fill a prescription. And usually no waiting line. (The Long's Drugs next door to it always takes a couple of hours with a LONG waiting line.)

I dunno. Did you want them to rush through the counting and measuring part?

My guess is that filling the scrip is about 1/3 of the total time. Getting your insurance to go through is the other 2/3.
