As you may recall, my go-to principle is that everybody brings sunshine into my life. Sometimes, that is when a soul arrives……
So, TINS©, TIWFDASL© one sunny Saturday morning, and my very first child of Ghawd rolled his eyes when I asked, “do you have any allergies to medication?”, which is part of my Mark I-Mod Ø interview question set.
My inattentive friend responded, “Of course I have allergies! My nose has been stuffy and runny for a week!”
I tried it, once more. “Do you have any MEDICATION allergies?”
(sigh) “Are you taking any prescription medication?”
“Can you tell me what medication you are taking?”
“Nope. Cannot remember.” (eye roll)
I concluded that further interview would waste my time and annoy this gentleman, further. And so, a surly exam followed.
COMMENTARY: Simply so you know, IDGAF what you are allergic to, nor do I care what medication you are/are not taking, despite your physician’s goading, instruction, entreaties, or hectoring.
I *DO* care, very much, that I do *NOT* prescribe prescribe a medication that will cause your immune system to turn you into a fireball. Similarly, I really, really do *NOT* want to prescribe a medication that, in concert with whatever the (expletive) you are, indeed, taking, will perhaps form a binary explosive in your bloodstream. Because you could not/would not tell me whatever else you are, indeed, taking.
So, to me, this sort of thing is kind of important. Please, try to keep up.
