At my LFS a group of three boys come in... one is yelling on the phone he has no money and can only buy food and cannot go out... talks to worker... asks for a $500 fish! She says don't waste my time if you don't have money and he argued he did so she showed them.

"THIS IS A $500 DOLLAR FISH THIS TINY THING!" It was a baby Goliath fish... of course it is tiny!!

They went on about eels, but the eel he wanted is illegal to own. Any electric eels? No. Any eels with sharp teeth? No. Can I pet them then? No. Any poisonous fish? The puffers gallbladder is. He is poisonous?! Yes, the gallbladder. So if I touch him I will be poisoned? No, the gallbladder, if you eat it.

That went on for quite some time... I want the Goliath fish, how big of a tank? 500 gallons minimum, 1000 is recommended. Like, a swimming pool?! O.o Yes.

I love this worker! She's always there when I go and she always handles the idiots perfectly. Those dumb teenage boys just wanted a fish to be "badass" and probably to be threatening towards other kids...
