This is why people who need medication are getting scrutinized, getting hassled by doctor’s. Im 74 yrs old with 2 knee replacements , 4 herniation in my neck, and the doctors give me the 3rd degree every month. This guy is the problem, guys like him, arrest him already, maybe I can get my medication without a jury trial for once.

$4,000 in pills? It takes 5 business days to get brand name prescriptions . Single employee working with today’s opioids problems? This doesn’t make sense

This seems to be the trend in sunnyside nowadays.
I have been living here for over thirty years and the neiborhood went from good to bad to good again. I see the same pattern now as when it started going downhill in the past. I hope I am wrong.

Ano- if you have been here over thirty years now, then you would know this crime took place in Wooddide not in Sunnyside.

$4000 worth of pills? so 4 pills then. Doesnt seem like much. Unless it’s from Canada, then it’s a million pills for that amount.

And their “side” of fries is $7. And it’s huge. Not really a “side,” but they give you some plastic finger tips so you won’t get your fingers greasy. I took them home and played doctor with my partner. But it’s weird. They charge you for sauces in a small plastic cup. Even thought the cheapest chicken dish is $8. What? You can’t give me condiments included with my meal? I believe I saw a line item for oxygen and light on the menu, and a shared table fee. That means if you don’t eat, you pay a fee to sit with your friends. Korea must be weird.

Why can’t you get your condiments at the drug store like everyone else. That’s where me and Mrs. Loco get them.
