Urg some people

I was at a pet store the other day and a lady was buying feeder comets. She said her grand daughter never saw them swim around in a bowl so she was getting them for her. The guy recommend she not put them in a bowl cause they'd likely die very soon. She said oh well. Another lady asked if her grand daughter would be sad when they died. She replied oh, she doesn't like fish, I just want to show her. I'll just flush them who cares it's just a fish.

I feel so bad for those fish...I hope he didn't sell to her :/

I would have caused a ruckus and made sure she didn't walk out of the store with a fish. Sure, they're feeder fish, but if she wanted her grandkid to see one swim in a bowl, she should just bring the kid to the store and let them see them there.

So long, and thanks for all the fish!

I've learned to speak up in pet stores, especially when I see people trying to buy fish for their kids. Usually they are picking the wrong fish for the wrong size tank, and I direct them to a more suitable fish. I've never seen anything that crazy, though. :C Poor fishies.

So long, and thanks for all the fish!
