It Can Be a LONG Wait at the Pharmacy...





Introduction: It Can Be a LONG Wait at the Pharmacy...

Big pharmacies like Kaiser's have a system where once you go in, you have to wait interminably for your name to appear on a light-up board. When it does, that means your prescription has been prepared and you now have permission to wait in a new way, to go stand in a long line to be given it.

For the horror and amusement of incoming drug seekers, plant a life-sized skeleton in the waiting room.

Step 1: Wait for Staff to Appear. Watch to See What Happens.

(The aide studiously ignores this patient's dwindling condition...)

Step 2: Wait for Patients to Arrive...

Sidle up to each person. 'How long have you been waiting so far?' you can ask.
Then take bets on whether that person's meds will arrive on time...
Mwa ha ha ha ha!

    hey where can i get a skelton my grandmother is coming and i want to get a laugh out of my other family when she finds him in my closet well also my cousin

    I am hearing you on this! I went to collect my mum's medication and I was the only one in there...took them 20minutes, I was almost that dead guy. Also, the same for me, November the 1st 1pm, I am out stealing the abandoned decorations from the road side lol! Nice one :)

    Would like permission to use your photo. It's great!

    It was a found skeleton. You know, the day after Halloween, people seem to leave their unwanted pumpkins, costume bits, bones and internal organs, etc. around on the street. :-)  But it wouldn't be that hard to make one out of papier-mache.

    Yeah, it's funny, but... I dunno. Doesn't really seem like much of an instructable. :\ Maybe if it was about how to make the skeleton...

    Yes, I agree! I wanted to post it to the "Halloween Photos" contest, but somehow messed up and it wound up here. Then, because it was in a contest, the bot won't let me delete it. Sigh. -- If you have an Instructable on how to deal with this sort of situation, please send me the link!
