Angry RUDE person at petco!!!!

well, my 13th birthday is on wednesday, so I went to petco to buy the betta I've had my eye on for about a month, a blue marble male crowntail. I walked in, found the fish, and picked him up. some lady walks by and asks me if two bettas con live together of corse I tell her no. then, my dog Fluffy decided to pee on the floor! so I set the betta down to clean it up. and that lady picks up MY fish! I tell her that I've been looking at that fish for a month and it's my birthday present. she won't give it to me! she tries to convince me to get another fish! she says "I'm a school nurse, and all the kids are gonna see him, and if you have him, he'll just sit at your house and only you will look at him" I CAN'T EVEN DESCRIBE MY FURY!!!!!

I'm so sorry. I doubt she'll even care for it properly! I hate to think that she'll probably just stick it in a tiny bowl and never pay attention to it again. I can't imagine a person like that caring for a fish.

thanks, sweeda88 she said she had a five gallon tank but she may have been lying because I said "what size is your tank?" like 3 times before I got an answer!!!

Uh yeah, I wouldn't have let her walk out of the store with that betta. That's utterly rude of her!

It's pretty pathetic that a GROWN UP WOMAN would act that way around someone so young! Good grief!

Btw, happy early birthday! Sorry you couldn't get that boy.

Take it as a compliment.....she seen that you had good taste and because of your experience that the Betta would be the healthiest.....but still she was a grown woman and a nurse that works with children and what a crappy thing to do to a young adult especially on their Birthday.....shame on her....

And Happy Birthday....

Wow I would have exploded! That women wasn't very mature for someone her age..... Did you get another Betta to make up for him?
