Today, it was my first day closing alone at a pet store when a lady came in wanting to return a bird she bought months ago. Once I informed her there were no returns on livestock, she let the bird free and ran out the door, leaving me to catch it and explain to my manager where it came from. FML

Oh retail, how I hate thee.

At least she didn't try to return a dead bird?

am I the only one who thought of twenty bird and the grandma reading this?

Tweety bird?

Damn you, autocorrect!

Auto correct is my mortal enemy.

Tweety bird or one and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie?

Isn't it four and twenty blackbirds?

A "cat out of the bag" pun doesn't really work here, does it?

You know what they say: A bird in the pet shop is worth two in the cage.

What a birdbrain, leaving her bird at the pet shop and not getting her money back.

Oh retail, how I hate thee.

Wow.Sounds like that lady was lacking in common sense.Sorry OP.

Something seems wrong here.I feel like there's some punctuation error.Does anyone else see this?

What I am asking myself is what she expected to gain from this. She lost both a bird and money. Not a lot of thinking on her part

56 - She probably just wanted to get rid of the bird and see if she could get money back. In frustration of not getting her money back, she released the bird. PS - Love the username!

well, time to release a Doberman on her XD.

At least she didn't try to return a dead bird?

It definitely sounded like a Monty Python pet shop sketch set up to me.

At least you didn't refund her money.

78 are you the bird that got returned? If so i can see how you'd be sore about it and not want your previous owner's money refunded.

He isn't pining for the fjords.

It sounds like she was brilliant.

Damn bird probably kept waking her up at some ungodly hour tweeting and shit...

Where's Sylvester when you need him?

Tweety always ends up taking cover in the cage eventually.

Either way, tweety ends up in the cage.

At least she didn't bring back a dead parrot. "Pining for the fjords?!!!"

Is that a Monty Python reference I see? :D

#27, nudge, nudge, grin, grin, wink, wink, know what I mean, know what I mean?

Well, she hadn't nailed it to the perch so...

The pecking order goes like this: The owner, the manager, the customer, the bird, then you.
