“To the woman at the pharmacy. Not the one who stared at me and my children like I was a disgusting pile of filth. The other woman, with only kindness in her eyes. Thank you,” she begins her letter that she posted online.
“I thought I’d be in and out, I thought it would be a good opportunity for the kids to get outside and give them a treat. You didn’t know they stuffed up my script, twice. I was there to fill scripts for ADHD medication and anti-depressants.”
The kind stranger told the woman that she had three kids of her own that were at her mother’s place, and that she understood exactly what the mum was going through as her children caused a scene in the pharmacy.
“Everyone heard me, even the pharmacist could hear the panic and my voice quivering. You didn’t know it but it’s a mammoth effort for me to get out confidently with all three. I regretted it as soon as they started screaming and the head shakes and annoyed glances came my way.”
