Thrown Out of the Store

Postby Shaun78 » Tue Feb 23, 2021 7:04 am

So sometimes I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut. I was at a local big chain pet store pickup up some supplies. Anyway as I stood in the retile section I was listening to an employee pushing coil UVB bulbs as okay for beardies as well as freeze dried food, and red light bulbs for night heat to a customer buying a new bearded dragon. I decided to interject myself into the conversation and in a polite way said to the person buying the dragon that everything they were told was incorrect. The store employee said I was incorrect. When I asked how many dragons they had cared for personally they walked away and I had a talk with the customer. The employee came back with a manager and I was asked to leave the store for spreading false information. I basically laughed at them both, placed all the items on the shelf I was going to buy and left. I only hope the couple buying the dragon listened to me after I left.

This is just infuriating. Sometimes, I think the best thing to do would be to prevent reptiles from being sold in "big box" stores altogether, but I can't think how to do that without hurting small, reputable reptile stores. They're pushing that stuff because of the companies they do business with, not because it's at all good for the animals... the almighty dollar. :angry5:

I have yet to be thrown out but, I have done the same thing many times at the same store.
You sir are a hero in my eyes!!!!!!
The wonderful world of bearded dragons is a magical land of mystery, enchantment, cuddles, love and, worry! A mysterious realm where things always seem to change in an instant and, the moment you think you have it all figured out, the rules change! You think you own your dragon, guess again. You are now a slave!!!
