Too many things to do with very short time with very limited help causing everyone panic attack

This is not a new issue. Everybody probably have known for many years. Pharmacy deals with unrealistic amounts of calls, customers and prescriptions every day but with probably only one or two people. Patients are usually very rude and inpatient and they don't want to give us time to prepare their medications safely. Under all this stressful and shortage of help, many retail chains force pharmacist and employees to work more and more. We are already dried out but they want to squeeze our last bit of blood. Bottom line, NO HELPS, TOO MANY WORKS FOR HUMAN BEING TO HANDLE, AND RETAIL PHARMACY TREATING US NOT AS A HUNMAN BUT TREAT LIKE A SLAVE TO KEEP OUR MOUTH SHUT. I DONT SEE ANY HUMAN RIGHT IN THE PHARMACY FOR PHARMACY WOKERS.
