Baby Boa

, , , , | Right | July 22, 2014

(I work at a pet store in a large shopping mall. We sell pets and supplies. The customer in question is a well-dressed woman in her late twenties.)

Customer: “Do you sell rabbits?”

Me: “Not year-round; they are a seasonal item.”

Customer: “Do you have any large rats or guinea pigs? I need to feed my snake and it is quite large.”

Me: “Well, we do have some rats. Let me show them to you.”

(I take the customer over to the enclosure with the rats.)

Me: “Will any of these do?”

Customer: “Well, they are a little small. I will just buy two of them. The snake is probably really hungry since he escaped for a while and we just found him.”

Me: “I am glad you got him back safe and sound. Was he gone for long?”

Customer: “Yes, he was missing for quite a while. In fact, he hasn’t even met the baby yet.”

(I don’t know if it ever occurred to her that a missing snake large enough to eat a full-grown rabbit could be a danger to her infant child!)
