Customers do a lot of shit that really pisses me off in general, but this one was something else.
We sell mice and rats that people feed to their snakes. I don't have a problem with this, obviously since I have a snake, and though I don't particularly like it, that's just how it goes. The snake has to eat.
But I gave this guy two baby mice in a box and as I was walking away he casually shook them so hard that they rattled. You don't have to be very familiar with mice to know that they should not rattle around in a box, especially baby ones.
That kind of ignorant abuse irks me in so many ways. I had to walk away so I wouldn't actually hit him.
On the flip side, can you give CPR to a fish? Apparently you can, because I sorta did yesterday, and the fish started breathing again and actually moving, and now he's swimming around and eating. It's the ugliest feeder goldfish I've ever seen, but he's my zombie fish now and that was just awesome.
