To think standards are slipping

Went into a Chemists this afternoon, to collect a prescription for my daughter. The pharmacist - yes, the gentleman running the joint, not just a menial on the counter - asked me to "just take a seat over there, darling."

I took this to mean a) He thinks I'm a senior citizen b) Whether he thinks a or not, he is still incredibly patronising/sexist, and c) the standards required to become a medically-related professional these days are slipping.

AIBU, loves? wink

I wonder how many times you have ignored the female pharmacist as you think she is the menial on the desk?

Nah, he fancied you. Obviously.

Lizzzyy, there were only two men working there, so by process of elimination (OK, age), I gathered one of them was in charge of the other.

Megrim, you're probably right. Thanks for pointing this out smile

Just don't go back in with a prescription for Preparation H. You'll shatter his illusions.
