A pharmacist narrated his side of the story after an angry man confronted him for insulting his wife over the phone.
There are always two sides to every story. An angry man learned this firsthand following his confrontation with a pharmacist for supposedly insulting his wife.
A man once returned home from work to meet his wife sobbing by the door. Following attempts to console her and possibly find out the cause of her tears, the woman explained how the pharmacist insulted her that morning over the phone.
Angered by the discovery, the husband took off in his vehicle and headed straight for the pharmaceutical store. Upon his arrival, the man confronted the pharmacist and demanded an apology.
However, the pharmacist cut him off mid-sentence, asking him to listen to his side of the story. Without waiting for approval, the pharmacist began narrating his ordeal. He recounted how his alarm clock failed to go off in the morning, leading him to wake up late. To meet up with time, he skipped breakfast and hurried out of the house.
However, when he reached the car, he realized he locked both his house and car keys inside the house. As a result, he broke the window to gain entry into the house and retrieve both keys.
After accomplishing that, he set out for the store, driving at high speed since he was already behind schedule. Unfortunately, that earned him a speeding ticket. Just when it seemed things couldn’t get any worse, the pharmacist’s car developed a flat tire about three blocks away from the store.
Notwithstanding, he managed to reach the store finally, only to find a bunch of patrons already waiting for him to attend to them. He made his way into the store, where the phone was ringing nonstop. Ignoring the phone, he attended to the already-impatient customers.
Without catching his breath, the pharmacist went on to narrate how his plight worsened when he tried to break a roll of coins against the cash register drawer to make change. In his haste, the coins spilled all over the floor, forcing him to go down on all fours to gather them up. All the while, the phone kept ringing continuously, heightening his annoyance.
Attempting to stand up, the man hit his head against the open cash drawer, causing him to stagger backwards against the perfume showcase. Half the perfume collection on the shelf fell to the ground and broke, resulting in an offsetting stench.
At a loss of what to do, he decided to answer the phone which kept ringing off the hook.
“It was your wife,” the pharmacist concluded. Then looking at the apprehensive husband straight in the face, he continued:
“She wanted to know how to use a rectal thermometer. And believe me, mister, all I did was tell her!”
