My regret

Today, my little sister put me in charge of keeping her fighting fish alive. It would've been an easy task if it weren't for my crazy ex-boyfriend drunkenly forcing his way into my house, vomiting into the fishbowl and killing the fish. Only ten more hours until my family gets home. FML

It's a fish...Can't you just go to a pet store and buy another one that looks like the one that died? And then when your ex sobers up, have a serious talk about boundaries and make him pay you back for having to replace the fish.

If he forced his way into the house and is an ex, maybe let some papers do the talking instead. I’d be nervous if an ex showed up drunk and forced his way in. And hopefully the family will be more concerned. But yeah, replacing the fish is cheap and easy enough if she’s too young to understand it notice. Or as a way of making it up to her, even though it’s not your fault.

Bettas are difficult to replace. Not only is it difficult to find a fish with the same colouring, if the sister has had it for a while she may have picked up on its personality and habits. Those are not replaceable.

Lol... They sold them at my grocery store for $5-10 dollars. (Yeah I know sad, but definitely NOT $30-$40!) Guess it depends where you live and where you purchase them.

How does he force his way into the house. Did you open the door when he knocked or rang? That seems to be the case as you didn’t say he broke in. So I guess my question is why did you open the door to your drunken ex? YDI
