The Importance of Documentation

A nice, calm, and respectable lady went into the pharmacy, walked up to the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes, and said, "I would like to buy some cyanide."

The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do you need cyanide?"

The lady replied, "I need it to poison my husband."

The pharmacist's eyes got big and he explained, "Good Lord! I can't give you cyanide to kill your husband; that's against the law. I'll lose my license! They'll throw both of us into jail! All kinds of terrible things will happen. Absolutely not! I CANNOT sell you any cyanide!"

The lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband in bed with the pharmacist's wife.

The pharmacist looked at the picture and replied,

"You didn't tell me you had a prescription".

Moral : - Always give importance to documentation
