Are you the betta lady?!?

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!!!!!

I always bring my basset hound, so naturally NO ONE notices me. They all yell... "Molly!!". They even call them "Molly's fish tanks."

Haha i am xD i walk in and the girls who usually work at the fish section ask me what im getting :) and the people at the check out always ask "what number is this?" followed by some sarcastic number like 47 or 83 :P
Us bettafish.com-ers pretty much own the petstores by now xD we should get store credit ;D

haha, I think that's how I got my job. Just be there a lot and show that you know what you're talking about. And somehow I managed to skip having to work at the cashier as a newbie, and went straight to fish/small animal/reptile etc. person. Woohoo!

At the petsmart in my school they call me the Betta Girl. Usually when I'm in there they say "Bad week, huh?" because they know I go in there and look at all the bettas when I've had a bad day LOL

I've been trying to use that to my advantage to get a job there but so far no luck.
