where are all the celebrities that died of the , alleged, virus
They’re dead, dead people don’t tend to be out and about.
Where are all the Roman soldiers who invaded Britain?
I’ve not seen any.
It’s called cultural insensitivity, the crass assumption that everywhere else is just a watered down version of where you’re from.
Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
@user Um. Boots refer to themselves as Boots the Chemist, though they do use the word "pharmacy" to describe the parts of their business that sell medicines. And, as far as I can see, ABC actually refer to themselves as ABC Drugstore (!) but they're far from being one of the largest UK chains: they only have a few shops, all of which are in London. They don't even seem to have a website! – David Richerby Dec 7 '14 at 10:24
Aha! The answer underneath this holds the key to my confusion - chemists contain pharmacies. The che/mists around my area all have pharmacy on a big sign with or next to the name. Today's fact has been learnt! – Dom Dec 7 '14 at 10:28
Chemist is still the de facto name. Pharmacy would be widely understood, Drugstore would usually be understood, but neither would often be used by a native speaker – Jon Story Dec 8 '14 at 9:59
Now why couldn’t you have done that beforehand?
It wasn’t exactly a labour of Hercules.
We don’t have drug stores we have chemists or pharmacists.
Why are you so interested in my genetic heritage?
I’m English, we’re a mongrel race, I don’t need a DNA test to tell me that.
I simply said we don’t have ‘drug stores’ over here. We don’t.
Your name, not our name.
This is not your country, try to remember that.
Our chemists don’t have bar stools or a ‘soda fountain.’
Use the correct terms.
I’ve not said what you should call your shops. I don’t live in your country and I’m not some fascist with a huge sense of entitlement.
