Hi Ho Hi Ho

I really don't want to go to work. Today is going to be one of those days that I would be tempted to just grab a bottle off the control racks and chug it. We are in the middle of inventory and everyone and their mother is crawling around the pharmacy with a microscope, including the Feds. What's scary is, someone was fired about 5 months ago for sticky fingers and we all know our cycle counts are off.

My question is...what kind of formula do they use to establish a margin of error. Naturally, there is human error or two labels are printed but how do they determine how many pills we are allowed to be short. Everyone is stressed out and as usual we are short handed today which means I'll be running around like a lunatic all while trying to look my best in front of corporate.

I'm thinking this may be a martini kind of night. I rarely drink anymore but something tells me I'll need one after today.

I have no idea how they do it in pharmacies. But where I worked we were allowed a 5% margin of error. Dollar wise not merch wise.

Enjoy the martini!
