    Pulling A Not So Fast One

    | Oakland, CA, USA |

    (In California, we have laws that ban certain animals as being pets. Our shop is legally required to notify police when one comes in.)

    Customer: “My poor ferret is sick!”

    Me: “I’m sorry to hear that, what is your name?”

    (The woman tells me her name.)

    Me: “I’m sorry for the trouble, but you can’t own a ferret in this state. I’m going to have to report you.”

    Customer: “What? You can’t tell me that I can’t have a pet!”

    Me: “Ma’am, ferrets are illegal in California by state law. They’re still considered a threat to local birds.”

    Customer: “Fine!”

    (She walks out and comes back in less than 5 minutes later.)

    Customer: “I have a bunny who isn’t feeling well.”
