5. Don't Ask

By Edwin Tan (c) 2009

Asking someone why they're a pharmacist is kind of like asking them how much they weigh - it's rude and they'll probably lie to you about it anyway.

Despite this, I often ask my fellow pharmacy folk what got them down this particular path. A few of the responses have included "a process of elimination", "a means to an end" and a particular favourite of mine: "I didn't choose pharmacy - pharmacy chose me!" These answers are usually followed by a nervous laugh and a sudden change of subject.

Ah, Stacey cracks me up.
