Me: “BigPharm Pharmacy, how may I help you?”
Mr. SayWhat:

Me:
“No problem Mr. SayWhat, I’ll put that in for you. Is there anything else I can do for you?”
Mr. SayWhat:

Me:
“Did you need anything else, Mr. SayWhat?”
Mr. SayWhat:
“Oh, no, nothing else that we know of!”
Me:
“Alright Mr. SayWhat, we’ll have that filled and delivered to you later today.”
Mr. SayWhat:

Mr. SayWhat: “Ok, thanks dear!”
