Very Happy Yay! I was at my local aquairium store when this couple walk to the tank next to me 'Waht should we get for our new tank?' the girl asks her boyfriend (I assume) so I say to them 'best to start with something cheap like neon tetras there are ten for two pounds here and then move up to something a little less basic.' Thay ask me if I worked here and I said no. Then one of the clerk comes up behind me and says 'You do know'
I mean why hire me they don't know if I have any other experience!
I got a employee test and I passed with flying colours Very Happy
I now work 10-4 at johnson's aquatics getting paid five pound an hour doing what I love! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I want your job. couce I would probably get fired cause I would have given the old OK kid heres your freakin nemo but in that bowl he will die a young painful death and suffer untill that death comes. don't get me wrong I can deal with kids I babbysit kids now and then but a 5 year old screaming he wants a nemo in a bowl. man I would have picked the kid up and removed him from the store.

my opinion

They used to have a sting ray in a low tank at my LFS and the kids used to think it was great fun to kick or bang the glass so the ray freaked out Twisted Evil They have moved her to a bigger tank now thank God.
