That's exactly what I told her, but he claims that because they all died, it has to be my fault.

No, if they were perfectly healthy when they were shipped then something must have happened en route. If they weren't shipped overnight then something must have happened. Don't most breeders guarantee only if the fish are shipped overnight?

That's exactly what I told her. She claims since all four fish died, that can't be the cause. I agree that it is strange that all of them died, but I can't help it if they were treated roughly in transit. I wrote fragile on the box, that is the best I can do.

I'm sorry you're having problems tpocicat. I hope things are sorted soon, that's all I can really say..

I know...I've done my best to explain what I think happened. She says there was some white slippery "threads" in the water. When I searched on white threads, betta, I got 1) tumor, 2) algea from over feeding and 3) ROUGH HANDLING.

Do you have to refund her money? I would put her name on my no sell list.

I've already put her on my banned list. I'm just waiting for Paypal to decide who is right.

I paid my half of the rent for August on July 19th. Yesterday, I found my roommate sitting on the couch watching netflix, and reminded her that she needed to go to the bank and get her half of the money for the landlord. Her answer? "I have to go tomorrow when the bank is open so I can get a lollipop."

o.O Wait - what?!

Then she changed to: "I have to setup my online banking, so I need a reason to go inside the bank and do it."

Um. No. She probably blew all her money on booze or the casino - again - and needs to go beg some off of her family in the next state. Grrrrr >.<

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

Toad, too bad you can't trade her for a better one.
