Math is HARD! Im not SMRT!

·304 words·2 mins

I’m far from being a mental bigot. I understand that a ton of people did not go to college and dont have the in-depth knowledge that I have with regards how medications and the human body work.
But some people act so stupid, that a 4th grader could out-do them. For that, I must make fun of said people. I’m sorry, but read on and you’ll see what i’m talking about.
Example 1:
You get 90 tablets of Vicodin. You take 3 per day. How long will this supply of vicodin last you? *\*BONUS! It says on your bottle “Must last 30 days”**
Now all of you at home, since you obvously are reading this over a computer will say that the supply will last 30 days, because 90 / 3 = 30. HOWEVER ghetto-math says otherwise. Ghetto math says to call the pharmacy after 10 days and ask for the refill, because you sold 9 vicodin a day, thereby leaving you short.. Oh, and also you need to get really mad when I say that you cant have them early and threaten me. Pharmacists like to be threatened when you your narcotic refills early.
Example 2 (this one is harder):
Today is 9/25/05. The pharmacist says that your Somas are due in 1 month. What day would that be?
Now a normal person would guess 10/25/05. Even if one of the months had 31 days, you would be within 1 day and close enough. However ghetto-math says that 1 month has exactly 10 days, so thats when you should get your pain-pills refilled. Ghetto-math is never wrong, remember that!

The Angry Pharmacist
Started this site in 2005 out of frustration that pharmacy school does not prepare you for dealing with the ungrateful unwashed public. Was hugely popular until life called and I had to take a break. Now I try to provide low brow potty humor that applies to the pharmacy population at large. Except you clinical fucks, go play doctor with your white coats and snobby attitude.
