  1. number 21) we have it, its labelled on our computer but hasnt been checked yet and the pharmacist is on lunch.

    22) we have it and it is done, but you are shouting and raising your voice at us so have tp wait till the four people in front of you have theirs handed out first

  2. Everything went so smoothly without the usual fifteen things that go wrong that you have forgotten that you already collected and paid for it. See, there it is in your bag.
