I'm laughing about this now, but I was kinda sorta omg pissed when it happened.

We were living up here for a year, no jobs, 25 a month for groceries, so we were pretty malnourished. Ramen and grilled cheese, both on a good day.

It was winter and we got sick, and we're like, well, we can only afford so much ramen a day, so there wasn't much we could do. We were sick for a month.

Eventually Rob's parents come by (we were staying in his Grandmother's old house), and his Dad is all sorts of excite and says, "we got all kinds of goodies for you guys."

So his mom passes me this walgreens bag and I look in and see cough drops, a ton of cough drops.

I'm picky as hell about my medicine. So, like the good consumer, I turn the package over and look for the DRUG INFORMATION, and instead I see...

Nutritional Facts.

Active ingredient....



...pectin

Like canning grape jelly pectin. like suet pectin. like candy pectin.

And I remember almost crying because of how stupid it was and what a waste of money when all we really needed at that point was some choroseptic tabs...

who the hell buys medicine with nutritional information on it.

i.d.k.
