The pharmacist made me laugh today.

Three out of five people living in my house have strep throat right now. Here's the conversation I had with the pharmacist while picking up my daughter's antibiotics.

Pharmacist: Is this for your daughter?

Me: Yes.

Ph: For some reason, it says on here that your daughter is allergic to amoxicillin.

Me: That's because she is allergic to amoxicillin.

Ph: Oh. But this is a whole different class of drugs.

Me: Right. Because she is allergic to the penicillin class.

Ph: Oh. Then this is the right drug for her.

Me: Yes.

Ph: Well. Here you go then.
