While filling a prescription for antibiotics this morning at Walgreen’s, the clerk handed me a clip board with the printed names and signatures of 56 people and the medicines they were picking up. I scanned the list out of curiosity and saw some names I thought I recognized with fancy drug names scratched out. Some people had written things like “birth control” or “prozac”. The quick scan revealed no “viagra”, which I suppose is comforting in a way.
She took the clip board back and didn’t even look at what I’d written. I planned to play it off with a smile and explain that I wasn’t comfortable signing something so obviously not private. I figured she wouldn’t care anyhow. I didn’t have to do any of that as it turns out.
