A bitter pill to swallow

December 17th, 2009 · 123 comments

“To the best of our knowledge,” writes our submitter from Raleigh, North Carolina, “the bottle in question is one of those $0.79 plastic Deer Park water bottles.” You know, the special kind carried in just about every gas station, 7-11, and grocery store in the state.

To the one who tossed my bottles while I was on vacation - Shame on You! The small bottle I used to dissolve my medical pills after lunch. Today I could not take them because my bottle was gone.

Moral of the story? Just another example of how taking it upon yourself to clean out the ol’ office fridge can OMG KILL PEOPLE.

    Is this a note for each bottle? The big and the little?

      Implicitly referring to Fat Man and Little Boy?

      Somebody please kick in a buck for the team and buy at least one new bottle before Raleigh turns into a large, green, glassy, parking lot.

      She had to use a larger and a small bottle because logic and proportion have fallen. I am surprised that there wasn’t a call for “Off with their head”.

      One note makes you larger
      One note makes you small
      And the absence ones Mother writes for you
      Don’t do anything at all

      On the side of her meds bottle it sez,
      Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction.

      She just dropped in to see what condition her condition was in.

    I’m on the fence, here, baby. I don’t think the value of the item is important, if it’s still good, it hasn’t been sitting there for 300 years and you don’t know who it belongs to. I can’t deny that it’s not that hard to set out and acquire new water–especially if your damn health is on the line–but come on. Isn’t it common practice to ask around about the ownership of the items in the fridge before you go ahead and toss them?

      Unproven, I know, Mark! But continuously using those plastic water bottles to guzzle from, particularly if they are left in the car or something, and the day is hot and so something happens to the water/plastic (yes, I know, Mark, very vague), is meant to have links with cancer.
      The water-bottle thrower-outer is looking after the note-writer’s health (though maybe not the health of the planet).

      Yes, without the Cambrian diet and subsequent ‘explosion’ we wouldn’t have the half-a-billion year old argument about whether males’ or females’ excretory locales constitute the greater health hazard and impediment to evolving toward the god-within-us-all (via the cleanliness path).

      GG, how’s this work for you?

      Cleanliness is a process which delivers a measurable reduction in the direction away from a maximally entropic state. (messiness >= the D’v'l).

      I think of Geekiness as the use of a constellation of assets (s/w) and tools (h/w) applied to some process. The process(es) could be ethically positive, neutral, or negative. (e.g., A. Schweitzer, typical PANista , H. Himmler).

      As you acquire and apply assets + tools, as the difference between two measurements becomes vanishingly small, you approach local divinity,
      i.e. you’ve done everything you could (with everything you could find and understand) to make your little corner of the universe neg-entropic…
      that’s the limit of what can rationally be expected of any of us.
      The more of this we do, the more of it we will be able to do, which is why Geeks Rule.

    Good lord, how was your vacation in the land of budget neurosurgery?

    When you figure out how to dissolve your *medical* pills in a glass, cup, clean can, or just a rinsed out Lean Cuisine box…ask some of your colleagues to sell you some of those non-medical pills and powders
    and get them up to what’s left of your brain, Sweet Toots.
    By any means necessary and ex-post-fasto!

    Leads me to wonder why he/she has to dissolve his/her pills before he/she takes them? Medications are usually available in liquid or tablet form. If not, put pills in mouth, put water in mouth and swallow both. Pills will dissolve in mouth or stomach. The note writer seems to be more concerned about his/her bottle than his/her health.

      Rose, perhaps if you hold the bottle up to your ear, you can hear the wind blow.

      Of course, someone did a spring clean and tossed the bottle. So you can’t use that particular bottle. And it might have been more fun if they had decided to spin the bottle instead of tossing it.

      Some pills can be broken or crushed before taking them, but many are not designed that way. Its very easy to tell the doctor to prescribe a liquid form and dosage.

      Someone less easy is finding a compounding pharmacy to fill the prescription (if liquid isn’t a standard form), but that’s not exactly rocket science either.

Pre out-of-the-closet (as in, before I knew, not that HE changed) Michael Stipe is still my fanatasy man in many ways — but anyway, to stop digressing from my digression – did you know the original lyric “A simple prop, to occupy my time” was in reference to, as I Ty says, “rubbing one out?” I like that little vulgarity throwin in there.

      Gav, I don’t think you’re a technical writer.
      However, I do think you’re onto something. Note 2 is the abridged edition for those of us who don’t have the patience to read the original. Me? I’m waiting for the movie.

      Either that, or it was written by cloven hoof. The Escape Goat’s subliminal bleating (after having ingested and digested the notes) should be played backward for maximum effect.

    She can’t take her medical pills without her ‘special’ bottle. But she seems to have no problem with her recreational pills. Obviously motivation can find a way around the loss of the pill bottle.

    Now we know that she dissolves her medical pills in the small bottle. And she ‘uses’ all the bottles at lunch. Perhaps if management were to do something about the plumbing, and the notes in the ladies’, she wouldn’t need so many bottles, and they wouldn’t be stinking up the fridge.

    I am deducing that the pills are diuretics.

    No, wait! The pill popper, I mean drinker, is on to some great logic.

    The next time my pc freezes, I’ll just stop working.

    Who would want manky bottles from the fridge after your holiday? If they are so crucial to life, just wash them and put them in your desk drawer. She’d only wash them upon return before using, right?

    Sheesh use a fucking cup, at least those are washable. Get a nice mug, glass, etc that is personalized or get some nice ceramic paint (or sharpie but I just don’t care what things look like) and stick your name on it! No one is going to toss your mug… well not unless it gets really mold covered.

    If she uses the SAME bottles every day and is SO freaked out that they were thrown away, don’t you think it’s probably time for some new bottles anyway? There’s probably fungus growing on them and such.

    Don’t buy the bit about dissolving pills.

    … how pissed off she was to add the sticky note and DEMAND replacement bottles.

    In her first note she just decries the removal of her special bottle. But then she probably sat at her desk for 2 hours, working herself into a lather. Finally, she thought, “They can damn well replace my bottle!”

    Enter sticky note.

      “bottle” there is the direct object of the transitive verb “used”.

      There is no “is” implied there, Mr. President, much less an explicit one.

      It’s a somewhat stylized phrasing, but not some grammatical Gordian Not.

      She’s freaked about the bottles, natch, but not as unhinged as it might appear in the Language Arts department.
