Annoyed.

Is 6 black skirt tetras and 2 male guppies too much for a ten gallon? Cause this stupid petsmart guy wouldn't let me get 3 more because I was breaking the one inch rule... Which I know is bogus!!! I only have three black skirts, and 1 (now 2) male guppies, so I was gonna add 3 more tetras, which I thought was ok. It made me so mad!

The inch per gallon guideline is crap, as you know. :p

That said, black skirts are too active and grow too large for a 10 gallon IMO. I would strongly suggest sticking with a smaller and less active species of tetra like glowlights, neons, embers, etc.

Ok. That's fine. It just bothered me. Then he told me what to do to acclimate them... I was like "it's ok, I have my own method" and when he asked, I sat there and told him about drip acclimation, his mouth dropped open, and I gave him the biggest grin a 13 year old can give.

Haha. Good for you! That's why I hate going to the chains. They think 13 year olds are challenged or something. When I bred bettas, I bought a male and female, the guy was like "I can't sell you them they will kill eachother!" My LFS however, is always up to date on my projects (my recent dwarf seahorses), and they treat me like a normal PERSON.

I like making mine angry by sitting there for ever trying to pick an individual fish out of the tank, especially when they all look alike

I do hat anyway without trying to make them mad It literally is a life or death choice, and I hate buying something on impulse.

I doubt that. Maybe getting close to Chuck Norris, but I'd say your statement is pushing it just a little
