:(

Today in photography we were developing film, which is about 20 minutes of doing absolutely nothing, so I got to hear the more talkative people have conversations. One of them was talking about how 'finally my fish died! Remember when we stuck that gum ball in there to kill him, and he still lived? I kind of miss him now, though.' I wanted to yell at them so bad, but I'm more the quiet, shy type, who can't do that stuff. It troubles me that these people are the future of our country. What kind of person would do that to a living creature? They were girls, too. They were laughing about how ugly it was, and making fun of another girl for being sad when her fish died. I was absolutely disgusted. How is it people can't understand that fish are living, breathing creatures, filled with personality and love? I just don't get it. I truly don't.

Yeah, I know there are countless posts about situations like this, but this is the first time I've seen something like it, and it truly disgusts me.

It is really sad how hard hearted people have become. They don't even have compassion for other people much less fish!!

That's horrible. I would have said something, and most likely got in horrible trouble. lol. I was nearly arrested for chasing down pre-teens in the park. They had a baby duck and were throwing it up in the air and letting it fall. And some fisherman (no less) said I was the angry abusive person because of my choice of words. Please. I'm still angry about it,

I would feel the same way. Some people do not deserve to own pets...or have human children for that matter! It would have been hard for me to keep my mouth shut.

I think you said what I was going to say better than I could.

I'm the same CodeRed. it still makes me angry though. No one ever forced you to buy a fish, don't do it if you know you don't want to take care of it. :/
