If you could invent a pill to fix people, what kind would it be? - page 6

As hubs and I were driving through heavy traffic today, another car appears out of nowhere, weaves back and forth across the lanes, cuts off other drivers, and--after all that trouble-- winds up at... Read More

    ..........if you could fix one thing about another
    person with a pill, what kind would you give, to whom, and why?
    I chose the "peace pill" to give to people I come in contact with everyday, especially many of those on the job who seem to lack the ability to relax and be at peace without creating more drama in the day than is necessary.

    Can I get an "AMEN!"

    I would want to give a parenting pill to the bad parents out there who are doing their children more harm then good. Like abusing, neglecting...etc.

    A pill with 50 mcg of kindness (it's so potent you don't need much!), 200 mg of love, and 100 mg of compassion. It would be readily available in generic brands and very inexpensive. All insurances would cover it and it could be found on every formulary. The only side-effect is addiction.

    well folks, i'm big on peace pipes and peace pills.

    my logic is that w/o inner peace, all the other qualities would be futile, noting a blurred crossover between peace and happiness.

    wishing everyone peace.

    I currently work at an airline as a customer service representative and if any of you have watched the show Airline on A&E you have a good idea of what I go through almost everyday. That common sense pill would be an excellent idea to give someone about 5 hours prior to their departure. That happy pill would probably come in handy too.

    I vote for the get off your lazy butt and get a job pill. I know too many people able to work that just sit around and collect a check.

    Some folks need to take an Apology Pill.

    But that looks like a big, bitter one, which is why it's probably not used as much as it ought to be.

    How about a self awareness pill- one that makes everyone see themselves as they really are? We could improve on ourselves and find ways to stop accidently hurting others.
    Very good one Rapheal!
    I think a self awareness pill would help with many of the other mentioned problems like, lack of common sense, anger, and rudeness.

    A HAPPY pill
    there are too many grumpy people out there

    wait- I changed my mind

    A WELLNESS pill- thats right....one pill & you will never become sick in any shape or form. No more health insurance, no more surgeries, no more anguish or pain. But- with your wellness pill- you will expire at the age of 80 (on your 80th birthday) for population control.
