I was at Walmart today with my mum getting something and, of course, I couldn't resist the fish section even though it makes me furious every time I go in there. As if all the dead fish weren't bad enough, some lady came in to ask one of the employees a question. She was getting a Betta to keep in her classroom (in a small bowl of course--what a great lesson to teach little kids). She wondered if she had to bring the Betta home over the weekends or if he would be fine without food. The store employee said something like, "Ummm....I think it will be find over the weekend...yeah it should last the weekend without food, but just get there extra early Monday morning and if it died then quick come and buy a new one so your students don't find out." What the heck is that!!?? Like, can theypossibly be a bit more obvious that they don't care a bit about the fish but just want to make money? > Even sadder was that the lady--not just any lady but a teacher who is supposed to be teaching children!--just said something like "ok, that's good to know" and walked away before I could say anything. I can't imagine how some people can care so little about animals. At least I know the Betta will be fine over the weekend without food, but that someone would suggest just buying a new one if he dies, as if it doesn't even matter...well that makes me realllllly mad... ok done venting.
