Setting: Pharmacy God Pharmacy Monday afternoon, about 4:30 It's a busier than normal Monday, but not overwhelming
Tech: Thank you for calling Pharmacy God Pharmacy, Tech speaking.
(A few moments later) Pharmacy God, call for a pharmacist.
PG: This is Pharmacy God, how can I help you?
Caller: Hi, Pharmacy God. My name is Dip Schit with DumbAzz Pharmacy Recruiting Service. We have a couple positions available in a local hospital. Are you interested in hearing more?
PG (remembering his days back in a critical care unit): Sure, where is the hospital located?
DS: I'm glad you asked. It is located in State Capital.
PG: Stop right there. State Capital is over 100 miles away. That's not exactly local.
DS: Oh.....where are you located?
PG: Take a look at your computer screen. Where does it say that you are calling?
DS names Pharmacy God's town.
PG: Do you know where Pharmacy God town is?
PG: It's in the corner of the state.
DS: Would you be willing to relocate?
PG: If I wanted to live in friggin' State Capital, I would already be living in friggin' State Capital.
DS: Well, if you know anybody near State Capital who may be interested, we offer a 1000 dollar referral...
Note to recruiters: If there are three counties between me and the location of the job, it is not local. Local means close to me. Hell, even within 45 miles is somewhat local. Half-way across the state- not local. Thank-you.
