I agree Neilan. She took the time to find out that they eat their young. Maybe she was upset that she came home to all these hampsters and didn't know what to do with them. I don't think she asked a dumb question (in my book there is no such thing) just that she wanted to find a new home and was frustrated.

Good point. I just think it's funny that someone would expect a pet store to take back baby hamsters like that. I guess if she had not been agitated about it, it would have been different.

I suppose it's like fish. When we have fish that we cna no longer care for (offspring from current fish) our lfs will take them off our hands. Some give us store credit. It's possible some pet stores would take other animals.

I would never have thought to take fry back to a LFS. Don't they have certain restrictions as to who they get their fish from for quality reasons?

From what it sounds like and the few I've been to, I'd have to say most fish stores really aren't dead set on quality.

The places that we take fish to are ones that we frequent on a regular basis. But we have taken fish to PetsMart and PetCo before for my mother in law. She purchased Bala Sharks for her 29 gal tank and had nowhere to take them.

Blindskate, please start posting relevant things. This rantings are not really productive. I understand if you want to post about a bad call or a bad day, or useful information, but these are getting a little too much. I could post all day about the customers/co-workers/parents/friends/car problems/weather/gas prices/traffic/mean people/Annoying people/not so smart people and GRAMMAR, but this is not the place. I am not trying to be mean but you do work in a pet store and should be the one educating your customers. Look at all the threads about, "my LFS told me this" and the information was wrong, because the LFS/Pet store worker didn't care and only wanted to make fun of so-called "dumb questions". Be part of the solution and not part of the problem. Your customers call you for advice, not criticism or to snicker behind their backs. I find these inane posts to become quite boring and not helpful to this community at all.
I think you should take a look at your position and try to help the folks that are asking for your help....it makes me feel better when I can help some one, that's why the higher ups in this community keep me around.
So if your "next post" is similar, please refrain or at least put in a question form that other on this site can benefit from.....
OK, off my soapbox.
