Those rats were obviously pets because of their harnesses. I have never seen a sewer rat or any other kind wearing a harness. Very rude of your dad.

It was a mistake. He probably feels bad as well. Still, fyl op.

You're a bit of an asshole for calling someone you don't know an asshole. Guess that makes me an asshole too. Guess where all assholes. Maybe thats why the world is so screwed. Ponder on that instead of a dead rat.

Op is the fucking retard who has rats as pets and has their father come over to fucking meet them. If that was my kid, i'd skip killing the rats and go straight to disowning my kid.

Fair call. Rats aren't meant to be pets.

If hamsters - those cute-looking but super aggresive bastards - can be pets, rats surely can. I've heard that rats are really sweet and lovely animals. Besides of that, even if OP had a chimpanzee in her house, do you really think it's fair of the dad to kill it? God, your idiotism is hurting my brains. Her dad is or an asshole or a moron for killing animals that wear friggin' pink harnesses.

53, I can't see her location from the app but I'm 99% sure she's not from an English speaking country. It's rather shameful that her English is actually better than many people for whom it is a native language. It wasn't that bad of an error, and you understood her point. You must have one fragile brain, my friend.

65- she's from Belgium. But that doesn't mean English isn't her first language. I don't know, it might be, but it also might not be. If it's not, then I congratulate her on her almost perfect English. If it is, then she should've caught that. Sorry :/

84, I really doubt English is her first language. I come to that conclusion because the grammatical mistakes she makes are characteristic of ESL speakers. The mistakes native speakers make are quite different, usually related to the difference between spoken and written language (your/you're, could of/could have, etc).

You will love your little rats till they chew a hole through their cage escape into your home procreate And take over your home. Rats have those little red eyes because they only see blood.. @ 53. Lay off the tiny grammar error she only made two of them. From the hundreds of other comments I have seen in my life, she performed above and beyond the standards set by the English language. Everyone makes mistakes. Like your description of yourself for example. If you were awesome you would have come up with something funny or interesting to say. But since your brain's activity level is on par with my cats desire to chase sunbeams and laser points. You could only comment on one of the errors that could be found in her statement. A single grammatical error. It's a sad day when a wannabe grammar nazi overlooks a grammar error.

Shrooms wasn't taking a grammar Nazi view. He was taking a linguistic view. ESL teaching/correction falls under linguistics, not English grammar.

63- I agree. Hamsters are terrible most times. Though you can get good ones. I prefer rats. I had two when I was 12, I loved those little creatures. They both lived 7 years and never had to stay in a cage (except to eat) after the first six months. Rats are easily trained and very sweet.

'Besides of that' is wrong? Really? I use it so often in my comments here, and not a single person has told me how to write it properly. Even Google Translation doesn't know it. Since there is so much interest in my languages: here they are: First and native language: Dutch Second language: French Third language: German Fourth language: English (but I use it more than French and German)

First of all, are any animals really MEANT to be pets? No, humans made that so. And second of all, rats make loving pets. I've had two rats and I used to raise mice as well as hamsters. Hamsters are evil little rodents that don't like the company of anybody. Hell, they don't even like other hamsters. Rats love to be played with and will climb onto your shoulder and just chill there.

I realize this is forever ago, but the way to say it is just 'besides that' or just 'besides' ^^ just in case you want to use it in the future without more people bothering you. I personally think it doesn't matter since we got the point.

But wouldn't your dad know you had rats as pets??

Although I'm not sure why I'm being down thumbed. I thought I made a legitimate statement that implied that the dad shouldn't have killed the pet rats because: 1- he came to see meet them 2- they were wearing harnesses

I blame your thumbs down on garden gnomes, evil little bastards, I know they come to life when I'm not looking, and one day I'll catch them, even if it's the last thing I do! *twitch*
