This type of situation is the reason why my 5 year old brother in law is brain washed. He is now giving his 48 year old daddy betta lessons and can be trusted to feed them on his own. He actually has and takes care of his own betta, his dad does the changes of course. He gets out of bed before everyone and gives his fish a pinch of food. Little fingers give the perfect size breakfast. My husband was there one morning when the boy woke up and he was cracking up. He asked him what he was doing and he responded, "My fish needs his breakfast, duh"

Keep yourself clean and bright, for you are the window through which you must see the world.

My 7 year old sister keeps getting into my room and bringing her friends over to see the fish, last time this happened her friend convinced my sister to try and touch the fish with their hands, and whenthey realized blueberry was too quick, they caught him in the net, PULLED HIM from the water and started touching him like if he was cat....

Thing is I was in my tutoring job and wasnt home to stop this.

When I found out, (because blue's water was all over my room) I grounded my sister so badly, she never goes around the fish without my permission no more. At least for now.

A non fishy story but similar lines would be:

My friend has 2 baby cousins, well not so small perhaps 5-7 years old. And her aunt that had to stayed over visiting for a few weeks.

And my friend just got a kitten called Halloween, did you know what the kids did?

THEY KICKED the cat, grabs its tail, pulled its tail, stepped its tail, BEAT the cat. Everytime we weren't looking, somehow they got to the cat.

They beat up the poor kitty so bad, she was limping. And the thing is we grounded them, yelled at them, everything possible and still no avail. We banned them from touching even looking at the cat, but it was impossible.

It was also the aunts fault. She didn't give a crap, and got upset when we yelled at her children. And didn't think her children did it, she said that cat got hurt from falling off the bunk bed, but how does that explain that the poor kitty was hurting from it's front paws, back paws, stomach and tail?

Honestly they are messed up all those 3. I was so upset at all of them and I wish I could have gone all out on those idiots, however, it wasn't my family so it wasn't really my place, but my friend did it for me though XD


Seriously uneducated parents breed uneducated children, the aunt is a terrible human being and mother, and her children under her influence is becoming like her >_>

ugh....some of these stories. my son is only 11 months old, and he already has more respect for our fish than these kids.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

yes she is no longer limping it happened this summer, there is a lot of drama in that family that I'm not very willing to get into otherwise i would have jumped, good news is that they moved to a different city and won't visit for a whiiiilleeeeeee because that aunt is lazy.

Not only are kids horrible but so are some adults! I'm in college and sometimes when new people come over to the room I always have to make sure they don't tap the glass, open lids, or get into my fish food.

What especially annoys me is when people say that the prides and joys of my life are "just fish".
