|Petco Is Stupid Too

I'm leaving for work this morning and swing by my tank to feed the fish. There were 2 russian guys wearing only towels hanging out in my aquarium. "Come, Pavel! Join us for sauna!" I glance at the thermometer and it's 10 degrees higher than it should be. The heater broke and stayed ON. Luckily my fish are still alive.|
So, I go to Petco at lunch to exchange my heater. Surprize! All the other heaters are $17 more than the one I got. When I expressed my hypothesis that the previous heater was made cheaply and that's probably the reason it broke, the Petco dude cited that probably wasn't the case and that it was cheaper because that heater didn't have numbers printed on the dial. WHAT?! Printing numbers on plastic does not cost $17. I'm tired of Petco employees not being able to admit that they don't know absolutely everything about everything in the store. I would appreciate an "I don't know" every once in a while.
The new heater is kinda ugly, but less phallic.
And remember, blogs are stupid.
