(So I’ve read many stories on here about customers not recognizing the male bits on their hamsters. I had never had that happen to me once in six years. Apparently I’d come due.)

Customer: *walks in moments after we enter, carrying a teddy bear hamster in a cage*

Me: “Good morning, welcome to Petco. How can I help you today?”

Customer: “I need help.”

Me: “I’d be happy to help. What can I do for you?”

Customer: “Is it normal for my daughter’s hamster to get these…bumps down on his back sometimes?”

Me: “Bumps?” *I look into the cage, as he explains*

Customer: “He’s my daughter’s hamster, and sometimes he gets those bumps. I want to know if he’s okay.”

Me: “Ah…well sir…those are his testicles.”

Customer: *shocked* “They are?!”

Me: “Yes sir. So he’s fine. Hamsters can pull their testicles into their body, which is why they’re not always visible.”

Customer: “Oh…so he’s okay?”

Me: “Yes sir. Is there anything else I can do for you?”

Customer: “No. Thank you for your help.” *he slinks off, embarrassed*
