Ingratitude or bad manners?

While waiting for a prescription to be filled at a local pharmacy I witnessed something that was very offensive to me. A man dropping off a prescription was told that he had maxed out his six prescriptions a month allowed per MediCal. Although the pharmacy had given three additional prescriptions over the allotted amount, he became angry at the clerk then he made a statement — something about his pain and that he “had to fire two doctors because they would not help him.” Then he walked out. (That was) not very good behavior from someone who is receiving public assistance. Lorrie Lewis, Newcastle
