YUP! You heard it right. I was at my local Walmart, I wanted to buy this beautiful black and white picture of NYC for my room since I just re did it in a modern black and white NY theme.. And of course, I always have to go look at the bettas. Soo.. I went over to them and didn't find any I wanted. While I was about to walk away, I looked in the sink, and what I saw made me gasp and my heart start to race.
FOUR MALE CROWNTAILS IN ONE PET STORE CUP !
YES! YOU HEARD IT RIGHT!
I was freaking out like crazy. So I ran to the nearest employee and told him. He laughed in my face while saying " Haha they fight yes? " He barely spoke English.
So I ran back to it. AMAZINGLY, all four of them were still alive. I found two empty cups, that were filled with pretty nasty water.. But I had to seperate them as quickly as I could. I took the net and scooped out fish by fish. Finally, I got them all out into their own cups.
So, I then went to find the manager to tell her about this. She was sooo rude. Here's how it went down.
Me: Hi ma'am, I was at the betta section and noticed FOUR males in ONE cup together!
Me: Um.. You do know bettas can't be put in the same cup, right?
Manager: Yes.. What do you expect me to do about it kid?
Me: Umm, no. Quit the attitude. You're ridiculous to sit here and act like it's nothing. If you want to be matter-of-factly with me, I will be with you too. Now you need to either get back there and clean the yellow water yourself and keep a better eye on them in the future, or I will be reporting you to the Walmart corporation because this is vile, oh and yes. You can get into trouble for this.
Manager: Uh, ok.
And I walked away. I feel so proud of myself.. LOL. It felt sooo good to tell her off. I wish I could have taken some of those babies home.. But just got a new girl yesterday and the parents set it as a personal limit now.
So.. Comments appreciated(:
