This is just a pointless rant...

Well I was at pet smart today getting crickets. When the guy got the crickets in the bag which was no more then probably around 15 crickets he starts counting them one by one right in front of my face and then gets rid of a few. He hands me the bag and sort of PO'ed from that I count the crickets to return the favor. There was only 10 crickets in the bag, so I counted again to make sure I was right. I told him that there is only 10 in here and asked for just 2 more. The guy said that he counted and there is 12. So what I did was asked if he could call his manager to come and do it for him since he would not. He rolled his eyes and took the bag back and went though the process of putting everything in the bag again (which took him a while) With all that trouble and time wasted I get to walk out the door with 12 and not 10 crickets for $1.40

The reason why I am sharing this with you guys is because if a company has policy's that require their staff to count out the crickets and dump out the extras they better damned give me the correct amount so I don't have to pay for more then what I'm buying.

I really to get me some dubia.

I would of told him to eat the 10 crickets for lunch, and gone somewhere else. How many crix do you go through a week? Might be time to either start that dubia colony or order crix online in bulk.

Oh, I would have still insisted on seeing the manager. He had attitude, and I would not have tolerated that.

I second that. Although. if it had been my husband I probably would have had to come up with bail money because well, let's just say that he doesn't do well with disrespect :x

Grixxly15 - I am impresses though that you were able to make it out of Pet Smart with all of your crickets alive. I have never been able to buy crickets there or at PetCo and make it home without some of them being dead. Fortunately we have a local petshop that orders them for us in bulk and we get them that way.

I go through like 50 a week. I got a thing of superworms from a aquarium place that I like that also sells herptile supplies. So I thought I'd just buy some crickets for a variety for hunter at petsmart.

I think once the weather starts to warm up consistently I'm going to order dubia.

I totally understand! We used to buy crickets by the 100's at petland (for $14), and I got my boyfriend to count them once and there were around 70 in them. I told petland more than once and they simply say ' we dont package the crickets'. Stupid. Luckily we've found $100 for $8.50 from somewhere else :D

I hatee when Petsmart counts the crickets and dumps some out. It really ticks me off. I NEVER go there any more. I get 10 for a dollar. The other place only gives 15 for a dollar but they usually don't rip me off.

YARGH! I know the feeling! The other thing a hate about petsmart's cricket ways is that after they've counted the exact 12, you get into the car and realize that one is dead/dying. Why are they so darn anal about the crickets. It's not like they take an inventory of them at the end of the day.

Yea it really does tick me off. An old mom&pop pet store charged a dollar for a dozen but when I asked for a dozen they gave me more like 2-3 dozen. I did not like the store but it was the best place to get crickets.


@haley I would much rather have your incident then mine.
