October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

Pet Owners Should Not Be Airheads

| USA | Family & Kids, Pets & Animals, Theme Of The Month

(A customer comes in with her eight-year-old son. The fish are in small, plastic cups for the customers to view.)

Son: “Mommy! Look at the fishies!”

Customer: *looks at fish* “How nice.”

Son: “Can I get one?”

Customer: “Sure. Pick a fish, and let’s go.”

(They come to the counter, holding a fish.)

Son: “But, mommy, doesn’t he need a tank, and filter?”

Customer:  “No, don’t be silly. He can live in the cup.”

Son: “But he needs a filter for air!”

Customer:  “Don’t be so ridiculous. He’s a fish. He doesn’t need air. He breathes water.”

Me: “Actually, he’s right. This kind of fish needs at least a two gallon tank to live in, as well as a filter, gravel, and food.”

(The customer storms out with her son, mumbling about how we were ‘being stupid.’)
