that sign sounds like it needs some modifying. I'd be the one to do it right in front of the workers without caring if i got kicked out for it. Kicking me out would only mean that they'd lose my business and money. I bought genji because his fins were so bad and his container was so filthy. I didn't leave until every last betta was cleaned out. I also got the manager to get a clean container for genji. Of course it made them mad but what can they do about it? They can't just start yelling at a 15 year old girl in the middle of a store. When i showed them genji's fins i made them scared. I let them know that when a 15 year old girl is popular in school she can make them lose a ton of business because of their horrible care with bettas. It made their minds come clean and realize that they need to keep the tanks clean. Now everytime i pass the aquarium section it's sparkling because it's so clean.
Maybe next time I could bring my friend Sarah along to a Wallmart...
Why? She's actually 21 but is small framed and could easily pass as a 13yr (Don't tell her I said that she does Karate >,< and DOESN'T fight fair, Steel toed boots!)
She's very VOCAL when flustered if she saw those fish in bad conditions... She'd raise heck... and what manager would dare not appease an upset girl about animals with a scary (I have a good creepy glare) older brother looking guy (I'm like a foot taller I look like her brother) with them. Hehehe
Now I just sound like I want to start trouble at a store with Betta's in bad conditions but... hey not like it's that drastic...
~~~~~~~~~ *What I'd want to happen*~~~~~~~~~
Sarah: "OMG! Look at this water! It's so dirty!"
Clerk: "No miss it's quite alright..."
Sarah: "Fish should NEVER be kept this way! *Sniffs* It even smells! This is TORTURE!"
Clerk: *Noticing people looking* "Betta's live in small puddles..."
Me: "Nooo thats what you're told to say... in DROUGHT they can SURVIVE in small dirty puddles but not LIVE for long periods. Yes it's alright... sorta to keep them in these containers since they fight BUT you MUST keep the water clean!"
Sarah: *Searching around the bettas and grabbing a container* "THIS ONES DEAD! ISN'T IT! YOU KILLED IT! YOU KILLED THIS FISH!"
Clerk: *Sweating* "Lemme... get the manager..."
*All warm and fuzzy* Mmm thats JUST how it would go... I'd secretly videotape that if it happened.
What? I may be crazy but you all know this would be interesting AND entertaining to observe... also I love my friends XD
