A bottle

I picked up a perscription refill yesterday, and instead of having the pills in a little bottle the pharmacy placed them in a larger bottle. For some reason this really upset me. At first, I was just complaining about the waste of plastic, but really the issue was more than that. The bigger bottle gave the pills more significant in my mind. Big, significant pills are for sick people, and I'm not sick. I'm just a person who has to take some pills. The big bottle just made it all seem more serious and sinister.
