I wanted to share this little bit of happy.
A few months back I worked at a horrible pet store and my manager complained I was "too pink" - I effin kid you not. My manager (and I quote) said:
"When you are on the sales floor, you're face goes all pink sometimes, this makes me uncomfortable and it looks like you are angry and want to set the store on fire."
Well... I was angry and DID want to set the store on fire, but that's besides the point.
One of the main reasons I stayed as long as I did, was because I love rabbits, and I was in charge of the rabbits there, and got to handle them daily.
One of the last straws for me, was seeing the bad management be responsible for the near death of a baby rabbit out of sheer apathy on the managers part.
It all ended well, and I took my last check with a great big screw this job!
I went down to the animal shelter and found the most beautiful little rabbit I ever did see :D
Apparently he'd been there for 8 months, and no one wanted him.
Jasper has been with us now for about 2 months, and it's been a blessing on our house to have him with us.
Today I got my pictures back from the photographer that came to our house and had a session with our newest family member (pictured).
I couldn't help but think how much happier this makes me than working with the rabbits at that hell-store.
