Shop After You Drop – Target Pharmacy



I’d like to share a little story with you.  One time, awhile ago, I had a prescription filled at a pharmacy.  I couldn’t wait around for it because I had a few other errands to run, so I came back after eating dinner with the kids while Jon worked on their bathtime routine.  I figured, since I had it filled already, that I’d be back home within 15 minutes.  When I got to the pharmacy, I found out that it hadn’t actually been filled so I would have to wait.  They promised me about 10 minutes since it was later in the evening. No biggie.

So I texted Jon, and waited.  I flipped through Facebook & Twitter. Then Instagram, and then Pinterest.  And then texted Jon again.  Before I knew it, over 20 minutes had passed.  Where the heck was my prescription?

Finally the person behind the counter made eye contact with me (ok so I might have been staring at them waiting for them to look up to see me waiting with my most impatient face ever) and they asked if I was waiting on something. I said yes and they checked my prescription and it had already been filed away in the big section of names.

People! That means I wasted time sitting there!!! Most inefficient way of waiting ever!


Now, if I had sent that prescription to Target, I could have dropped it off, wandered to the makeup section, and received a text within that 10 minutes that it was ready.  HOW SIMPLE!  Instead of sitting in an uncomfortable chair, I could have been mesmerized by the fluorescent lights and gorgeous lip colors and nail polishes.  Isn’t that a much more productive way to wait?
