Stop saying Brufen. Nobody has called it that since domesday you old fashioned fool. I-BU-PRO-FEN.

And call it a prescription. NOT a script. It isn't hard.

This really makes me grit my teeth. It is like they have their own little health care word clique.

Oh am I coming across as a miserable cow? <cheers up at thought>

Watch out for Daily Mail tomorrow '2 pharmacy assistants assaulted by crazed woman in unprovoked act of random violence'

Lots of people round these here parts call it brufen. I just assume they like to miss out whole chunks of words and join in. I make no sense and they leave baffled but hey, that'll learn 'em.

No, this cos they are STUPID but in a manner designed to exclude.

They always ask me if I am asthmatic as if they CARE.

Next time I ask for ibuprofen I am going to make up a myriad of things which I suffer from, such as heart flutters and gallopping dandruff, make 'em work.
