It's pretty embarrassing, right? Either that, or straight deceptive.

It's more embarrassing when they can't tell which fish is which when they have names and pictures of the fish on the outside of the tank they're catching them in....

You have to remember that Petsmart is an employer of the lowest bidder. The majority of people hired by Petsmart are there for a paycheck, not because they love animals. True, some do eventually become involved in the hobby, but the turnover rate is so high that they are very few and far between.

Employers don't care?
What about the EMPLOYEE??
Either the employee who wrote the ad, or the employee who (supposedly) proof-read the ad?
The store manager can't win. If he watches everything to make sure it is all done right, he is a "micro-manager". If some stupid little thing like this escapes his notice, he isn't doing his job right.
I'm SO glad I am retired!
