Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

An Exercise In Solving The Medicament Predicament

Posted 06-28-2020 at 11:07 AM by case44

New technology offering reminders is one thing. New technology causing a big annoyance is another.

I won't say the name of the pharmacy, but this writer just hates robocalls, especially when they come for things not really needed. Oh, it's a medicament that I use, but goodness, the dosage changed a few months earlier. So, the robocall comes across one day last spring and sez that my prescription has been filled and is ready for pickup. I didn't take the robocall seriously, as I've already filled a prescription with the correct dosage. The peeps behind the counter say "it's a corporate thing".

Now, understand that it's not the pill measurement that's different, only the dosage.

After a few months of the pharmacy sitting on said prescription, a lady from there decided to leave a message on my machine, prompting me to head over to the drug store and make a decision. Since I was about run out of my current prescription (with zero refills), I took it upon myself to go ahead and take the supply with the old dosage already put together. It came with a warning from me to them: If my endocrinologist submits another order, then they will need to fill out and not reject it or put it off. Clear-cut objective actually accomplished. Imagine that.

Robocalls. Can't live with them, but I question cautiously whether we actually can't live without them.
