Phar-maggie

Maggie:  “I'm out of pee pee pills.”
My Sainted Aunt: “You'd better call in a refill.”
A couple of days later…
Maggie:  “The pharmacy called and my pee pee pills are ready.  They want to charge me $29.”
My Sainted Aunt: “why?”
Maggie: “They said they are for a 90 day supply this time.”
My Sainted Aunt: “Well, that makes sense because they usually charge you $10 for a 30 day supply.”
Maggie:  “When I questioned it, they said I should call my insurance.  I said no, why don't YOU call  them?”
The pharmacy tech called the insurance company and then she was nice enough to call Maggie and explain her coverage.  Can you imagine why my aunt didn't want to pick up her pills? She let herself run out of them because she said they didn't work anyway.  Well, after a week or so, she decided that they did indeed work.


My Sainted Aunt: "My next goal is to get Maggie to stop calling them 'pee pee pills;."

The chuckles that we get from hearing Maggie's exploits is wonderful medicine. Thanks!
