I had to make a quick run to my local Petco and while I was there I spotted some guppy fry. Since I lost all of mine I just had to get one even though I NEVER buy Petco fish, I asked the guy if he could get me one and he told me that he couldn't because the babies had to be with there mother until they were at least 8 weeks old because they need her milk. I mean really he was that stupid? That was a all time low for Petco.

Hahahahahaaaa!!! Wow. I don't think I would have been able to keep my mouth shut on that one.
I had a guy in Home Depot tell my mom and I that the new shipment of insulation would be there on the 32nd. Of course I opened my mouth and embarrassed him, he deserved it! He also tried to be Mr. Smooth and sit on a stack of insulation while he was calling someone, and the whole thing slid out from under him. Ahhh, what a great day.

I couldn't help but laugh at him, he acted like he knew exactly what he was talking about and that I was the Idiot! A lady came up to him and asked him if she could put 'One of those pretty Red, White, Orange, and black fish' (Koi) in with her Jack Dempsey. The genius said 'Oh of course, They get along really well' I told her that she definatley should not put them together, his face turned a few shades of red
