Q: What is it like working as a Pharmacist?

Pharmacist in Devonport:
`"$Hard But Sometimes Rewarding."`

Cons: When you get yelled at by the people your trying to help or get asked - "why do you need to know that" to which you feel like saying - "so I don't kill you" but have to say something more polite. Also when you have to say no to certain requests that seem reasonable but are actually illegal.
