Me: Hi, I just had a question for you. See I have these weird red bumps on my shoulder. (I show them).
Pharmacy Lady: Oh, yes that does look weird.
Me: I just never have skin problems and I couldn't figure out what it might be so I thought I'd see if you had a cream or something.
Pharmacy Lady: Well it must be insect bites because it itches.
Me: Um, actually it doesn't itch.
Pharmacy Lady: No, it does itch I can tell. Plus you've scrached it.
Me: No, not that I remember, I've had insect bites before that itched and this doesn't itch.
Pharmacy Lady: No, its a bug bite and it itches. I'll give you a cream to take care of the itch.
Me: It doesn't itch.
Pharmacy Lady: Ok, take this cream and put it on 3 times a day, it will take care of the itch.
Me under my breath: But it doesn't itch.
Pharmacy Lady: Ok, that will be 5E.
I caved, she was so convinced that I have a gazillion bug bites in an area the size of a silver dollar that I paid the 5 euros and hoped the cream would work. I can tell you now that with the cream, I still don't itch, surprise surprise.
