Omg! How terrible, Emi.
This isn't a horror story, and so not trying to hijack the thread, just adding something quickly while we're on the subject. At the pet store Sunday...
"Will this snail eat diatoms?"
*gives me a look like I'm crazy
* "Um no...???? They only eat algae!" *walks away*
*Thinking to self* Except diatoms are a type of algae...
The employee acted like she'd never heard of that word before. Probably didn't, because they actually have a sign posted in the fish department reading: "Employees Wanted. No Experience Required." She acted like I was the clueless one whom she'd just corrected. Lol, my Dad calls me a fish snob, but I can't help it if I think people should treat their fish well and know what they're talking about. (*ahem* The LFS
