Loach Horror Story

Here's a true horror story about clowns.
I was in my LFS looking to buy some more little loaches. This particular store is a big chain in Toronto and the quality of the fish is generally pretty good. Considering clowns are very expensive in these parts: sometimes you can get 3 for $11.00 if you're lucky.
So this young 18 year old dude, goes up to the tank and like some dweeb on a skate board he takes the net and RAKES a bunch of baby loaches across the gravel with the net and comes up with about 8 lying helplessly in the net among all this gravel. I looked at him with my mouth hanging open in horror. I said: I only want 3. So he dumps out the net and repeats the process: scraping a bunch of little loaches and gravel together into the net. So I said: WHOA there. Put 'em back. I don't want 'em now that you've damaged them and maimed them. Then I went and told the store manager. End of horror story.
(Sorry to any 18 year old fish-0-philes I may have insulted)
