    Lady looking at blue damsels
    Look honey,These would go great with my neon tetras. Wonder why they're in the saltwater section?

    Lady looking at the Ocellaris clowns.
    Sir,do you have 25 of these nemo's with 25 small bowels for my child birthday party?
    Me:
    Ma'am,even I did,I wouldn't sale em to you.
    Lady:
    Why? My kids wants a nemo party.
    Me:
    Lady,the best thing you can do is take this towel and wipe your brats sticky finger prints off all these tanks she's just slobbered up and take your ass to petco,cause I'm not selling you shit.

    Guy looking at the red belly piranha:
    OHHH,,I want a couple of these,they only eat fruit and berries ( the fish are ripping comets apart ) .
    Me:
    Sir,if you really believe that,I'll let you wipe the algae out of that tank.

    College kid looking at 14 gallon bio-cubes:
    Can I put a Reef Shark in this? ( after spending an hour busting my balls about our prices )
    Me:
    SURE you can.You buy this tank and pay for the shark up front and I'll order it right now.:pissedof:

    Scruffy looking dude:
    Sir,I'm looking to buy a complete set for a saltwater tank.I want just rock and a 100 or so huge predatory fish.How mush am I looking at?
    Me:
    Let me call our contractor and see what he can build you a 3000 gallon tank for.
    Scruffy dude:
    3000 GALLONS,???,I was thinking more like a 55 gallon..
    Me: Ain't gonna happen.
    Scruff dude:
    YOUR an ASS,I'll go elsewhere.


    And that's all before 12 and we open at 10.:shock:

    One of the LFS by me writes venomous across the front of their tanks when they get venomous fish in. One day I watched a woman tell her kid that "They cant be poisonous" and "Thats just a gimmick to get people to spend more money on them". I wanted to erase "venomous" and write "fish petting tank" on it

    We get those too SaltyB.

    I netted a fuzzy dwarf one day and asked a lady if she'd like to hold it and find out just how venomous they really are.

    There comes a time when you tell the customer where to stick it.Looks like he got off on soft dirt.
    I bet that was a wild ride!! How much of the seat came out between your cheeks?
    Is that a Pete??

    People make me soo mad when I go to my lfs. This lady has a spike in her tank and wanted to buy things for it still. She wanted an Anemone and we overheard her and told her she shouldn't. So she got this wicked huge and nice long tenticle plate coral instead after the employee told her it would be a bad idea. Kinda pissed me off that they sold it but they wanna make the money I guess. And some teenagers were calling feather dusters, Anemones. Really? They don't even look the same. And the name tags are all right there. I hate being around ignorant people, lol

    ive been dumping for almost 20 years and that was my first flip.
    trailer was up all five stages when the ground gave way under the
    driverside trailer wheels. I was on my side in 8 seconds. I felt
    like i went 15 rounds with iron mike tyson back in the day!!!

    I'm sure.
    It's not a fun ride.The one and only time a I laid a truck over,I was filling in for one of our concrete drivers on the job site.The kid flagging me back to the bucket wasn't paying attention and flagged me off the edge of the barge ( couldn't see the edge out the mirrors ).
    Took about 1/2 second and I was looking straight up.
    Long story short.The kid got fired and I got the rest of the day to go home and shower.And Trust me,I needed that shower.

    Yeah John,you need to come by one day when me and Zack gets on a roll about some of the customers.

    Had one lady last night that actually got and left because we kept looking at her tit's.But everytime she'd stand up,she'd make sure to push em out and stick em right in our face.
    Same lady had on a mini skirt with NOTHING on under it.And when she'd bend over,she kept her knees locks so she could show off the cooter.
