Please Do Not Pet The Employees

(I was a volunteer at the zoo, and was walking around an exhibit room with a boa constrictor in my arms so people could pet her.)

Man: “Can we pet it? It’s not slimy, is it?”

Me: “No sir, not at all. She’s very sweet, go ahead.”

Man: *pets snake* “Wow, it’s really soft.” *reaches for my head* “Let’s see if its handler is, too…”

Me: “?!?” *dodges his hand*

(Thankfully, he left quickly!)
