    No, that's responsibility of others. Personal responsibility is making sure that you have what you need.

    I never said anything of the sort, so please refrain from putting words in my mouth and strawmanning that.

    Did I not say, "One of the things that was never mentioned..."? Asking for the dollar to receive charity is to let the person you're asking that you need the money. People are not mind readers and if a shopper that was in the back comes to the front to check out are supposed to know that the couple needed a dollar?

The guy only needed $1 and they denied her the medicine she needed over $1. I work in a pharmacy and we have a coin tray that usually has around $3 in it. If someone is short we pay the difference. We also carry manufacturers discount cards on the shelves so we can try and save people money. Pharmacies are part of the healthcare industry. Although it is a for profit business, it's also a medical service and serving people's medical needs are the #1 priority. They can just take the $20 and knock off the $1. At my pharmacy doctors are sometimes bad with calling in prescription refills. People come buy and they need their medicine. We can't legally give them the full quantity without the doctors consent, but with the old script we do loan them like a 3 day supply. We don't charge them for it, and we run the risk of them not paying for their meds when they come back. It's just the right thing to do, because people need their medicine and without it they will suffer. CVS acted highly unethically.

    And the couple is legally obligated under contract law to carry the required funds to cover the purchase.

    It seems like every poll in this forum gets spammed

    IMO, medical service should be like the police, and fire department, you get it when you need it. No questions asked.

    It's $1, and it's a life saving medication. Legality aside, most pharmacies are compassionate enough and will help out their customers. It's disgusting to put someone's life in jeopardy over $1.

    I don't really see the difference. I need others and they need me.

    Then how was this couple "coercing" others?

    Did I not say, "One of the things that was never mentioned..."?
    Oh, so you are assuming this is the case?

    Asking for the dollar to receive charity is to let the person you're asking that you need the money. People are not mind readers and if a shopper that was in the back comes to the front to check out are supposed to know that the couple needed a dollar?
    Difficult to say. There may have not been any customers in the store at the time. They may have been so paniced that they wouldn't sell them the inhaler that they weren't able to think straight. They may have asked every customer that was in the store, and every customer may have turned them down.

    I'll take that as a concession thank you.

    Yes, it appears that someone has hacked the poll results. Shouldn't that be permaban worthy?

    I fail to see how anyone in this thread is agreeing with your Neoconservative extremist view that the woman was in the wrong by having a medical condition. How exactly was that a concession?
