Dr. Grumpy: "Okay, let me write out a schedule to taper off it."
(scribbles on paper)
Dr. Grumpy: "All right, have a look at this. You'll drop to 2 pills a day for a week, then 1 a day for a week, then stop. So you'll be off it in 2 weeks."
Miss Pill: "TWO WEEKS?!!! I can't do 2 weeks! I have to take it at least 3 more months."
Dr. Grumpy: "You just said you wanted to be off it. Why do you have to take it for 2 more months?"
Miss Pill: "I just paid $25 for a 3 month supply. I don't want them to go to waste."
