There IS such a thing as a dumb question

So, as I've stated in many posts. I work at an exotic pet store. we also sell bunnies, cats, hampsters, everything you can imagine but dogs.

So..this lady calls.

Me: It's a great day at the ******, how may I help you?

Lady: Yea...if a mom hampster as babies you need to take them away from her right? Cuz she will eat them right?

Me: Yes, ma'am

Lady: Well, i bought a hampster from you guys and it was pregnant and she had babies, and well...can you guys take them?

Me: pleae hold on ma'am ill ask

Me: ma'am? We dont have any room for them

Lady: *attitude* well, i dont want them, can i just let the mom eat the babies?

Me: i guess...but i think its a little inhumane.

Lady: whatever! *click*


..........our society has gone down the drain

I didn't know hamsters eat their babies. That stinks your store didn't have room for them.

I fear some inhumanity is about to be visited upon some fish at a friends house, but I really don't want another tank.

Agreed, there are some flaws in our society. I hope you don't have to deal with people like that often. : p

Mom hamsters eating their young - My mom could relate - she use to say that she should have raised pigs instead of kids - that way when they pissed her off she could have roast pork that night.

That's hilarious. How DARE you sell her a mom hamster!

The way I see it, she got a buy one hamster get 4 free or a weeks supply of hamster food. All depends on how you want to look at it.

All in all, people can be ridiculous.

While her attitude was maybe all wrong, you have to credit the fact that she learned that the babies need to be taken away, and was taking steps to attempt to get rid of them properly.
