Well today I had no problem finding a chemist that was opened dear Reader, the problem I had was the service that I got at the chemist. I went into Boots and they did have the creams I use for my allergies. Before when I have got them from Boots they have been on a three for two offer. So as I was buying my cream I politely asked the girl on the till if they were still three for two and if so, I would have three. She then tells me that I cannot have hydrocortisone on three for two and that it is illegal for them to sell more than one of this cream. So I then explain to the girl that I have on several occasions bought hydrocortisone cream on the three for two offer. To which the girl said that they did not sell it on the three for two offer. So again I explained to her that I had done more than once got it on the special three for two offer. So what followed was three for two being said about 200 times in our exchange; then the debate of her telling me that I had not bought the cream on the special three for two offer and me saying that I did. She then offered to get the pharmacist to check and I said "okay...please do that." She then came back and she told me that the pharmacist would be over in a moment. She then told me again that they never sell hydrocortisone on the special three for two offer at Boots. Then get this dear Reader she then said that perhaps I have been mistaken and got three other different products on a special three for two offer. When I only ever buy hydrocortisone cream! So then it went back and forth again dear Reader, it was like been stuck in a loop. She still was telling me that I could not have possibly have bought hydrocortisone on the special three for two offer. Then the lady on the next till said well perhaps it is just not on offer anymore! But no the girl on the till was not going to back down and even though the pharmacist at this point had not still come over she was sticking to her guns that it had never been on a three for two offer. So really feeling like we could not get back into the 'I have, you haven't' loop again, so I just politely paid and walked out feeling really quite taken a back. I luckily found a receipt from Boots that shows that only last week I bought hydrocortisone on the special three for two offer! so I was able to check at 39 that I was not having my first senior moment!
