Modern life is rubbish

Went to a chemist's last night looking for iron supplement tablets and I couldn't find any. I found myself reading the small print on bottles labelled "Stress Buster", "Executives' Needs", and "Women's All-in-One". But none says "iron supplement". I started doubting the adequacy of my stock of common sense knowledge - does iron go by another name of which I'm ignorant? I asked one of the staff but predictably, she just shrugged, pointed at the shelves I've been studying, and uttered, "They're all here, Missey".

So I thought sod it, it's easier to have a sirloin steak for dinner. Maybe licking an iron rod three times a day would help too. Wouldn't be as tasty but probably works out cheaper.
