I'm sure with this development he can be transferred. Not sure why the DM thought the fact he lives close was a reason to not transfer him. The people in pharmacy are sort of snippy though so they don't put up with his yakkity yak and tell him they've got stuff to do. I'm never really alone in the store, the only other person there with me at night is the closing manager. But if they're closing down pharmacy at 9, I'm essentially alone because they're busy for the next 15 minutes or so.
On a happier note, I'm all packed for vacation with the exception of the everyday stuff that I'm taking with me. Got my year's worth of contacts ordered today. My appointment was at noon, and by 12:30, I got tired of waiting for the lady whose appointment was before mine to get done. Apparently she's an old lady that likes to chit chat. So I changed my appointment to 4 and got the rest of my errands run. I have one more errand to run tomorrow and I'm all set to go.
