Local Woman Labeled A Traitor By Customers After Opting Out Of Job At CVS, Joining Walgreens
March 9th - Kelsey Daniels, a 29-year-old pharmacist from Oklahoma City, angered local customers today after announcing that she would be opting out of her position at a nearby CVS and signing a contract with an Oakland-area Walgreens.
Daniels says that she simply didn’t see any room for advancement in her situation at CVS and that Walgreens presented her with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a promising career as a pharmacist on the West Coast.
“I felt trapped in Oklahoma City. It’s not that CVS was a bad pharmacy, but I just felt like I needed something different,” said Daniels. “I’ve always wanted to live in California, and this Walgreens store just seemed like the perfect fit. I know my customers will be angry at me, but I’m almost 30 years old and I think I’ve earned the right to decide what I do with my own life.”
CVS customers did not think Miss Daniels had earned the right to decide what to do with her own life.
“It’s disgusting what the pharmacy business has become,” said Mark, a local CVS customer who proudly burned all of his prescription medication in protest of Daniels’ decision to leave. “There’s just no loyalty anymore. I’ve been picking up my antibiotics here for almost fifteen years, but I guess the pharmacist can just decide to abandon us whenever she decides she’s had enough. Pathetic traitor.”
While customers were angry, Daniels’ former co-workers seemed indifferent about the situation.
“Kelsey who?” said Rebecca Washington, a former coworker and best friend of Daniels. “Oh, that Kelsey...yeah I guess she was alright, as pharmacists go, but we won’t miss her...I’ve forgotten about her already.”
