I'm going to have to include Walmart in "fish store employees." I was looking for some plant fert at Walmart (this was over the phone), and this is what I get
M. stands for me. W. stands for walmart employee, and the numbers are to differentiate from the employees I got to talk to.
W1: Hi, welcome to Walmart, may I help you?
M: Hi, can you please send me to the Pet Care section? For fish?
W1: Sure Hang on
W1: What do you need?
M: Some plant fertilizer, please. Liquid plant fertilizer.
W1: Uh, plant fertilizer? Liq--okay, sure.
(cue absolutely terrible hold music for approximately 17 seconds).
W2: Hi, welcome to Lawn Care, how may I help you?
M: (Caught off guard) W-what? Oh, Um, I was asked to be taken to the Pet Care, I'm trying to get some liquid fertilizer for aquariums. Unless you carry them there?
W2: Oh, liquid plant ferts, no we don't have those here. Let me redirect you.
(cue terrible hold music for 10 seconds)
W3: Hi, welcome to Lawn Care, how may I help you? (Okay, I HAD to have heard this wrong or something. But it's what I heard).
M: ... What? Um, Hi sir, I've been looking for plant fertilizer for aquariums - the liquid type - and have been asked many times to be directed to Pet Care. Can you please direct me?
W3: ... Liquid plant fertilizer? They make those?
M: ... Yes. Like *names brands*
W3: Oh, I've heard of those. Here I'll go check manually for you.
M: Are you sure that's okay?
W3: Whatever, I get paid by the hour.
Turns out, they never even had any. There goes a good 9 minutes of my life. Lol. At least the last guy was open-minded enough to do something.
