It was for me and this really happened so it's no joke.

Went to the doctor's earlier in the year because I had a persistent eye infection so he gave me a prescription for some ointment. Went into the chemists and handed said prescription to the assistant. She looked at it and walked up a few steps and gave it to the pharmicist. The pharmicist looked down at me and called out, "can't quite read the doctor's writing, what is it he's prescribed?". "Bromide", I said. "Bromide"? "Yes, "bromide". But it's an ointment, can't be bromide". Woman customer next to me was giving me funny looks and seemed to be sniggering. Then the penny dropped. "Oh my god", I said. "It's brolene for my eyes". My face was as red as a beetroot. Pharmicist laughed and woman customer said, "I was surprised you were saying it so loudly".

How embarrassing is that!!

Next time, make sure you take your hands out your pockets.
