Eeling Sad

| Right | May 12, 2011

(The aquarium I work at is a non-profit organization, so we’re always accepting donations. A well dressed older lady comes up to me, and asks a question about one of the animals in the 2000 gallon tank.)

Customer: “You see the eel? Doesn’t he just look so sad in that small tank?”

Me: “That’s actually just the way they look and act in the wild.”

Customer: “All the fish are swimming in circles. They just look so bored and sad.”

Me: “I agree that it must get boring, but this is all these fish would do in the wild anyway. They would even live in a small area, like this one.”

Customer: “Well, I’d like to just write you a big check. But your fish just look too sad.”
