I was 14 when I started working in a small neighborhood pharmacy. There was no soda fountain or magazine rack. Toothpaste,shaving supplies, some cosmetics filled the few shelves. Our business was prescriptions. I learned all the Latin abbreviations that doctors use and at that time, knew the name of all the popular drugs of the day, most of which are not on the market any longer. I was also the cashier and chief janitor. I made $25 a week.
