Toxic Parenting

, , , | Right | October 9, 2017

(I’m the manager, and since our aquatics specialist isn’t working today, I’m putting away a shipment of fish when a customer comes over.)

Me: “Good afternoon. Can I help you find anything?”

Customer: “I need food for my goldfish.”

Me: “I’d be happy to help you. Were you looking for a particular brand?”

(We walk over to the food aisle.)

Customer: “Which one of these is non-toxic?”

(I stare, stunned.)

Customer: “In case my kids eat it, you know?”

Me: “I… well, I’d advise keeping it out of their reach, but all of the foods are non-toxic, ma’am, or we wouldn’t be able to feed them to the fish.”

Customer: “Oh, thank you!” *grabs a container of food and happily heads out of the department*
