So I was at pet supplies plus today getting some more food for my cat, and I decided to stop by the fish section, to see if there were any good deals. There was another older woman there looking at the merchandise, and she started talking to me...
Woman: Do you have any fishtanks at home?
Me: Oh yeah, I have several of them.
Woman: Do you want some free parrotfish? Mine keep on having babies, I can't give them away fast enough.
Me: No thanks, I'm maxed out on my fish, and I only keep freshwater tanks.(I went on to describe them all)
Woman: Oh so you only have little
tanks. Why do you like bettas anyways, they are just the Siamese fighting fish you know..?
Me:(stand there shocked for a second at her blatent rude comment) "Well
they're small easy to care for, and they look nice...?)
Woman: You should put a male and female together(her tone made it sound like I was an incomptent moron that knew nothing about bettas)
Woman: Well I was just joking...
I just walked away from her after that. Her tone was just so rude, like clearly if the only fish I have are several bettas, I'm pretty passionate about them.
