The Twilight Zone
Boy, I sure didn't plan on having enough to write about *twice* in one day.... Oh well, it will probably wear off soon enough.
LOCATION: Duane Reed Pharmacy (aka the largest drugstore chain in the NY Metropolitan area)
Me: "Hi. Where are your sharps containers?"
Pharmacist: "Our what?"
Me: (while gesturing and making a box like shape with my hands) "Sharps Containers."
Pharmacist: (mumbling) "Oh. We don't sell those. Those are illegal."
Me: *pause* *blink* "Excuse me?"
******Cue Twilight Zone music****
NOTE: It turned out that the teeny tiny drugstore 1/2 a block from my apartment had at least 5 (apparently illegal) sharps containers in stock for a mere $3. Quick! Someone! Call the cops!
