Today, I got yelled at by my boss for being insensitive to a customer. I'd told her I never heard of the requested item even existing. She walked off shouting, screaming and throwing stuff from the shelf. She wanted to order a bird feeder with heated perches so the bird's feet won't get cold. FML

Little late for a patent. Quite a few companies make them for colder climates to encourage the birds to use them. Op looks like an imbecile to my fellow Canadians, even Walmart sells them here, a clerk at a pet shop is supposed to be at least a little informed on pet related products.

Sorry if we look like idiots thedrifter, but in the USA, at least where op lives (i live in the same area) bird feeders like that aren't common. I've never heard of that or even thought of it. We aren't big on birds over here. Even in our super walmarts I barely see bird items.

#59, some of us don't live in areas where products like that are common. Where I live in Texas, there are barely any basic bird supplies, much less any 'fancier' products. Just because something is common to you, doesn't mean it's common to everybody.

OP wasn't hired to think. (s)he is hired to be knowledgeable in the field and to provide good customer service. The least OP could have done is to ask other staff about it.

She's American. Tell her you have little kabbalah ankle threads for the birds. The keep their feet warm through ancient mystical forces, ward off cats and will ensure all their eggs are fertile. Only $24.99 for a pack of 10. Recent breakthrough in kabbalah technology by chiropractors means that they now come in other colours that just red (suck on that Madonna!).

Then go out back, pull a few loose threads off your jeans and whack them in a plastic bag.

Dude, today I went to the store to buy a heated purch bird feeder, and the douche behind the counter was so insensitive! He didn't know what the hell I was taking about...
