I'd be quite a bit perturbed if they refused to sell me something. But at that age, they sort of have to assume you don't know what you're doing. Because lets be honest, how many 13 year olds out there are actually diligent fish keepers.

You're just a rare breed.

I'm 13, and I get the same thing at my Petco and Petsmarts. I literally end up explaining things to THEM at times! :O

Same here. But the look on his face at the end cracked me up! and I love the chuck Norris joke! But ya, I'll just leave the stock as is. At least now everyone has a buddy. I'll just get the rest once I upgrade this summer!

I'm 15 but I look probably 16 or 17 (look at my profile pic on my page) and they are always like, "do you know about testing water?" and I'm like "yes, it's important to me and I do it twice a week" and they said "do you even know how or what to test?" and I give them a dirty look and say: "I own an API master test kit, calcium, phosphate, etc. Test kits, and I have a total of 200 gallons of tanks set up, a few have been up and running by my work alone, since I was 7." they look at me and say, "oh so um, you DO know fish, what would you like" I'm just so furious at stupid people like that....

I definitely agree with ya emi, I'm 19 but have wanted to be a marine biologist since I was around 5, currently goin to college to do what I love and I swear, I go to so many stores and even wildlife parks down in Florida and I'll talk to workers who knew less that I did when I was 7, so many people assume teenagers and kids today don't care about anything except videogames and television, but there are plenty of us who work and study to be the best at what we enjoy, there is no reason even young people shouldn't be respected for the knowledge they worked to possess. Lol sorry for the essay I've thought alot about that obviously lol
