Let me preface this by saying that I am currently studying to be an Animal Health Technician (like a nurse, but in a Veterinary clinic), and I’ve owned cats and dogs and such my whole life. I’m pretty well versed in their care.
So this one time I go to the pet supply store to get kitty litter. I’m looking to change what kind I use to see if I can find something safer and just as effective as clay. The man who owns the store asks me if I need help, and I say something like, “No, I’m okay. I just want to find a litter that’s as effective as clay without the dangers of intestinal impaction.”
He then talks my ear off for fifteen minutes, explaining in laments’ terms what each kind of litter is, how to use it, what the pee pee does in it, how the poo poo is affected, how often to clean it, fricking etc. I can’t even find a pause to tell him I’m studying FRICKING ANIMAL HEALTH TECHNOLOGIES.
He ends the whole ordeal by saying something like, “Lucky you, your boyfriend can carry it home for you.”
I don’t shop there anymore.
