Me too, Cathy!

Me: *to customer* What? You'd like a budgie? Do you have any other pets? Is the cage 18 x 18 x 18? What diet are you giving them? Do you know your avian vet? Do you know what an avian vet is? Will they be a single bird? Are you going to spend time with them? Is the cage by any drafts? Are you aware of the "budgie danger" list, including Teflon pans, household cleaners, hair products and perfumes, just to name a few? Are you familiar with the correct method of taming? Do you realize that cozy hut can be fatal? Are you prepared to purchase many different toys to satisfy your budgie's needs? Wait, where are you going??

Customer: *walks away* No just kidding I think I'll stick with dogs.

Boss: Stop scaring our customers!

I think there is a gang of us out there, I've also given advice to people looking to buy budgies at PetSmart, after a few minutes they are probably thinking "I have to get out of here". One time I saw 2 people looking at a cage that was not big enough for any animal, let alone a bird. I proceeded to tell them about a good size cage and that the bird should also have out of the cage time and sadly they just did not understand.

I loved reading this thread . But I do recall Kathy, you are a member of the Budgaholics Support group? Hmm, if you get the job, you might turn into a member of the Budgie Addicts With No Hope of Reform LOL! Good luck Kathy .

Oh my, it would take a lot of restraint and a very strong will for a budgieholic to resist the ongoing temptation daily! And this is not just for the budgies, but for the other pet birds in the shop too!

No matter the outcome, I hope things turn out for the best.
