Kids! Adorable little people who don’t always fully understand why we do the things we do. You can try and explain things to them, but they are still learning and growing…and half the time, if they don’t make the mistake themselves, they don’t really understand the lessons. “Don’t touch the stove, it’s hot,” means absolutely nothing to a 3-year-old until they sneak past you and touch the bright red coils glowing under the pot. This pharmacist found himself in a quirky situation and wasn’t sure how to move forward…what would YOU have done?
Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of tampons and proceeded to the checkout counter.
The pharmacist at the counter asked the older boy, “Son, how old are you?”
“Eight,” the boy replied without hesitation.
“Do you know what these are used for?” The pharmacist asked before scanning them, assuming the children had made a mistake.
“Not exactly…but they aren’t for me.” The boy replied uneasily. “They’re for him, my brother. He’s only four.”
“Oh, really?” The pharmacist chuckled and waited for an explanation.
“Yes,” the boy continued. “We saw a commercial on TV that if you use these, you would be able to swim, play sports, ride a bike, and go running a lot. Right now, he can’t do none of those.”
If that had been me, I would have just written a quick note for the boys to take home to their parents! That is NOT a conversation I would want to have with random children who walked to the pharmacy all by themselves! I have had some interesting questions asked by kids, but this one would take the cake for sure! This story is too cute…those poor kids. They thought it would be a quick fix to their problems!
