so yesterday my sister calls me up to make a run to the petstore to get her some pond pellets for her koi tank, and i needed some frozen rodents for my kingsnake, so i go to petco to pick this up for her, and while im there i go looking thru their fish tanks. after a few minutes i get to the saltwater section and they have a fresh arrival they didnt have a few days before when i was hunting for black convicts, a volitan lion fish that was maybe 4.5" long. beautiful. meanwhile im waiting on some service to get some pink mice for my snake, and i see this fish and pull out my cellphone to take a pic of it because it was quite stunning in its beauty. you would think i shot kenedy. i had THREE employees jump me and escort me out of the store for taking a PICTURE. i will NEVER go back to a petco again. when provoked i asked if it was posted anywhere, and they could not provide evidence of that. ive spent $1000's there over the years. lucky for me they just opened a petsmart down the road.

people can be so unnessiarily rude. all they had to do was ask and it wouldnt have been an issue. the way they acted it was as if i was stealing from them.

i didnt get the pic, the pond pellets, or the pink mice :(

I know that flashes can sometimes upset fish, although I have never experienced that with mine. However I think that was rather over the top to kick you out just for taking a photo. Was that the only reason they did it, for taking the photograph? If that happened to me, I'm afraid I'm not the sort of person that would just let that go, I would definitely put in a complaint to the management and see what they say.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

i didnt even get to take the pic, they saw me focusing on it and stopped me before i got to click the button. and i had the flash turned off so there would be no reflections off the glass. but i have to agree, im not one to let that go. so here i am, loading up my real camera, and im walking in with video recording... and they can get mad if they like. it will look funny on youtube.

:woohoo: Yeah! Way to go, make sure that you film the name of the company, then we will stick you on here as well, I can't stand companies like this, they should look after their customers, after all, who keep them in business?
