Im a good person

I went down to a certain chain store this evening to buy some gold barbs. The only employee that could assist me was the dog trainer. I told him I would like 5 gold barbs and he said oh you're in luck it seems we only have five left. I was confused because there were about 15 gold barbs swimming in the tank. I quickly realized the man was trying to catch the 5 yellow rainbows housed in the same tank but because I have a conscience I couldn't take over 75$ of fish for under 7 bucks.

It is good you did the right thing. Right is always right, and for wrong there are shades of grey.

The thought of getting different fish because they were more expensive wouldnt of even crossed my mind. When you get fish, you get the fish you want to keep surely?

There are exceptions though, if he wanted to give me 5 discus for $7 i would of probably kept quiet.
