I went to the pharmacy today to pick up my prescriptions. The cost on them was the same but on the receipt I noticed they had only charged me for 1 of them and not both. I pay at the pharmacy with my debit card as they keep it on record. It is very easy for me since I don't have to pull it out every time and I can also have others pick up my prescriptions for me. I take more meds than most as I've had MS for 28 years and I've also been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Chronic Pain. I live on Disability income and I just KNEW I would never be able to "give"!! Little did I know it took so little to make so many people happy!!
I phoned the pharmacy and let them know they had made a mistake. I let the pharmacist know they had only charged me for 1 prescription but I had picked up 2 prescriptions. I told her I owed them some money. She acted SHOCKED! However she never thanked me for being an honest person. She never let me know that she appreciated what I did in ANY manner. I felt as if I had "inconvenienced her" by letting her know of their error in my favor which I did not HAVE to do. (I have always been this way due to the teachings of my Mama but now that she's in heaven, I know she's watching me and smiling.....) Is it WRONG for me to think I should "expect" even a "thank you"?? I was just very surprised at no reaction at all.............
Is what I did considered "giving" even if nobody appreciated it??
Thanks for any input...
