The pharmacist who wrote a letter about his ex-girlfriend, who left him after a year-and-a-half relationship, has now gone public.
The letter was written after a woman who worked at a local pharmacy said the pharmacy did not properly verify the validity of the prescriptions she filled, according to The Hill.
The woman was not charged with a crime.
“He got a letter that she didn’t get her medicine and he said, ‘You know, if you don’t get your medicine, we don’t give you any,'” said the woman, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to protect her relationship with her boyfriend.
The pharmacy said in a statement that the pharmacy is “deeply saddened” that an employee may have made a mistake.
“We are sorry that this occurred, and we have worked closely with the pharmacy’s HR team to ensure that the situation is corrected,” the statement said.
“As the pharmacy has a very strict policy, we cannot discuss specific details in this matter.”
The pharmacy added that “every day we do a thorough audit of our employees and ensure that they are following the guidelines in place.”
The letter, titled “Dear boyfriend,” was sent in April and has since been shared on social media, including on Reddit.
In the letter, the pharmacist says he’s “deep in debt,” and “my boyfriend has been very supportive of me and my health” over the past year.
The post has been shared more than 4,000 times.
“I’m writing this letter to you because I’m concerned about my financial situation and the fact that you don`t understand that you need to do something to get a better life,” the pharman writes.
“The truth is, I can`t take care of myself any more.”
In the piece, the woman says she had a long relationship with the pharmacoan employee, who she described as a “beautiful, caring” man.
She says the pharma told her she didn`t have to fill out a prescription, and that they would refund the money she spent.
The Pharmacist also wrote that she was “deep” in debt, and told the pharmacon, “I am really scared about you.”
The pharmacoacan says they’ve since started to monitor employees to make sure they follow their policies.
“In our culture, it`s important that employees understand that their actions are not reflective of the health and well-being of their patients, their colleagues or the communities in which they work,” the pharmacy said in an email.
“To date, our internal investigation has determined that this employee did not violate our policy, and the matter is being resolved amicably.”
The employee was not identified in the letter.
