Seriously, are you even trying?

So we got a call last night from the pharmacy asking if, in fact, the PA had added to the prescription of this patient an order for

Vicodin Extra Strength #40

Seriously.

But wait, it gets better.

It was written in a different color pen.

Open letter to this guy:

Dear sir,

If you are going to forge a prescription for a controlled substance, please take the time to find a matching pen and learn the name of the drug you are trying to get. Perhaps at that point, the pharmacy may be willing to overlook the difference in handwriting. When you get out of jail, let me know and I'll enroll you in some intelligence lessons.

Oh yeah, and yelling and making a big scene in the ER in the first place didn't exactly endear us to you.

Keep trying. One day you just might get your fix.

I just found your blog, and this made me laugh so hard. We all talked about it in the ER tonight!

Thanks for the laugh!

Thanks for stopping by. Stick around. As an old cowboy once told me, "you're always welcome around my campfire."

Why not just forge a script for Vicodin in the handy one pound brick size? Bonehead! File that one under "too stupid to live".
