after reading a very important discussion on credit card theft I just remembered a similar but different situation I ran into.these days we are warned about so many things we need to'be careful of, even being sure in the pharmacy that we get the correct medications., well I think like so m any people I get to the point where I am going,yeah, yeah sure of course I will'be careful.common sense blah blah b lah. then I paid for my prescriptions and took my package. I though of the warning never leave the drugstore without checking you got the right prescriptions. I shrugged and walked out the door. after all I had been buying the same meds. for years. but just for fun I looked into my package. There were not eight bottles but only four yet I had paid ten dollars more than usual. then I looked closely at the four bottles, Mr.Elmer Jones glared back at me and the names of the drugs were unknown to me,. I had been given the wrong bag and paid for meds that were not even mine. to say I hustled back to the pharmacy counter is an understatement. I met Mr.Elmer Jones, we told the pharmacy clerk that we had been given the other person;s meds by mistake. So Mr. Jones had to fork out another ten dollars and got his four bottle while I took back a ten and got my eight bottles of prescriptions.from then on I checked right at the drug counter.Your take, you ever think to check when you fill your prescriptions?
