food it there for you

I honestly had a dude like YELL at me yesterday because he told me where free sandwiches were and I said “oh that’s great, but I ate dinner like twenty minutes ago.” 

He was like I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY THAT MATTERS, WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU and then said he was gonna go find people who “aren’t on DIETS.”

Remember that time I went to a Taco Bell in full casual Haruka cosplay

It was sincerely the greatest work of art in the history of humankind.

Remember when you had to pretend to be on-board with the fried chicken taco shell monstrosity while inside your heart was dying.

Hey, don’t force feed your reptiles unless absolutely necessary.

It’s extremely stressful and can be harmful. You can injury your reptile if you open its mouth wrong or insert the feeding syringe wrong. Your reptile can spit or regurge the food back up and waste away from the subsequent stress. It’s a very last resort and shouldn’t be done on a frequent basis. That’s dangerous and leads to all sorts of problems, the last of is your reptile mistrusting you.

There are lots of other things to consider beforehand.
Check your husbandry.
Check surface and ambient temperatures. Try out different foods.
Stop handling!
Limit interactions to waste removal, water changes, and changing out feeders.
Don’t stick your hand in for any other reason, don’t peek, don’t be noisy - DO NOT DISTURB!

Reptiles can go long periods of time without eating, and weight loss is expected. If weight loss is minimal over a long period of time it’s not too worrisome (let’s say 1-3g over a month). If it is drastic over a short period of time (let’s assume -10g in 1 week) then it’s bad. Of course reptiles vary in size so a smaller reptile (like hatchlings or dwarf geckos) losing weight is more concerning than a healthy adult leopard gecko or large colubrid dropping a few grams.

Most of the time I see cases of rapid weight loss mainly due to excessive handling, especially with newly acquired reptiles. This is why there’s a one or two week MINIMUM of no handling and minimum interaction! If the reptile still acts nervous even after 1-2 weeks, wait it out. Don’t put your desire over their needs. And please, for your reptile’s sake don’t force feed unless you’ve exhausted EVERY OPTION.

NO MORE

No more rude condescending customers - inversely, no more of that one 80 something man who keeps flirting openly with me. That is uncomfortable. 

No more aggressively bullying and condescending manager 

No more gutting fish whilst being glared at by people waiting 

No more being insanely busy one day (the day with the offers on) and being denied staff to help. 

No more standing around bored because all the customers got pissed off and went elsewhere in the week

No more vultures buying only reduced stuff, leaving new stock unsold until it gets reduced later. 

No more constantly freezing temperatures of the air con

No more putting up with the few staff who do nothing but whinge and do nothing about it

No more of the staff putting up with me trying to implement change of stock by reacting to sales figures (they hated that) 

No more prepping raw chickens and/or cleaning chicken ovens

No more sore, dry and cracked nails and hands by the constant hand washing 

No more fish scales IN MY HAIR

No more stupid hat, tie and apron combo with strict hair, nail and presentation rules

No more “oh you don’t have much on display” comments well if people bought stuff i’d order it in - inversely no more “oh you have a lot in today!” comments before everyone walks on buys nothing. 

No more (hopefully) feeling dead inside, either full of negative emotions or exhausted and pleasantly numb due to the overall sour environment the cut backs have created

No more weekend work and being called in for 5am shifts, completely ruining any sleep pattern I may have and draining me all day (speaking of which I just did one of those so i am off to nap fml)

No MORE WORKING RETAIL AFTER 7 YEARS
