Mercury Drug’s Suki Card

This happened last year at a Mercury Drug store near Makati Medical Center. The doctor prescribed me lots of medicines for the hypertension I was having that time. I was not feeling well and even worried about how much I needed to pay for the medicine. Then, this happened:

Mercury Drug staff (after reading the prescription) : Sir, may suki card kayo. (Sir, do you have a frequent customer card?)
Me: Huh? Sa lahat ng tindahan, ayokong maging suki nyo! (Huh? Of all the stores, I don’t want to be your frequent customer!)

Yeah. I just blurted that out without thinking. And my wife (girlfriend then) just laughed at me. The Mercury Drug staff just smiled.

But really, why would I want to be a suki (frequent customer) of a drug store? Who wants to be sick all the time, right?

Anyway, since I’m diabetic now and I have no choice but to buy medicines every once in a while, I already have a Mercury Drug Suki Card. But really, if I have a choice, I still don’t want to be their suki. 🙂
