...long past the time when the quo has lost its status (Laurence J. Peter 1919-1990).
An old pain in my shoulder blade resurfaced this week and I remembered I had a prescription for anti-inflammatory tablets from a few months back that I could use again. So I dug it out and went to the chemist but because the prescription was over 6 months old it becomes void and can't be used. Which meant of course I had to go to the doctor and fork out 55 quid to get another one. I don't mind so much but it's a bit of a pain all the same.
