The local Petco came to know me as the crazy betta lady. And now I work there and I get all the betta questions referred to me. A few weeks ago I helped a mom and her two young kids pick out everything they needed for their new bettas (two 2 gallon tanks, heaters, conditioner, silk plants, food, etc.). The kids were very nice and asked good questions and the mom was very concerned about doing the right thing. We talked about cycling, my bettas, feeding. etc. So yesterday I stopped in after church to pick up something I had left the night before when I closed (went incognito - skirt and nice shirt, no name tag, no petco shirt). This mom happened to be talking to the manager when I stopped by and saw me and was so excite, "Aren't you the betta lady!?!?". Man, I can't even shop in peace! The manager thought this was hilarious since they all knew me as that before I started working there. Anyway, the mom wanted to know why the female betta got darker in her new tank and why the male would flare his gills when he saw his reflection. She was so happy to see me and ask me these questions (even though I wasn't "working").
I just thought it was a funny story. Incognito but still recognized as THE BETTA LADY!!!!!
