So I've discovered the little gem of entertainment Petco has on their website called Live Chat, where one can supposedly gain useful information from chatting live with a Petco representative. So far I've gotten much more entertainment value out of these chats than info.
Has anyone actually found a helpful rep yet?
Or have any funny chats to share?
Here's the most recent one of mine inquiring about fees for special order:
You: I would like to know more about special order for live fish.
Charlene: Do you have a fish tank for your future fish?
Charlene: We have tanks available at petco.com that are sale and cheaper than in the store.
You: yes, i have multiple tanks already. Is there an added fee for special order?
Charlene: We do not have information about the additional fee for special order made by the store.
Charlene: You can visit or contact your nearest PETCO store for more queries.
Charlene: How many fish do you want to get?
You: about a dozen
Charlene: I see. What type of tank do you want to set up?
You: a planted nano tank with co2 and a school of bororas brigatte
Charlene: So you would like to freshwater tank. Am I correct?
Charlene: We have SeaClear Rectangular 30 Gallon Show Aquarium Combos where you can put your fish in.
Charlene: It is constructed of the finest cast acrylic, a SeaClear Aquarium Combo will offer years of dependable service. It's less than half the weight of comparably sized glass tanks and its exceptional clarity allows unobstructed views of the underwater world you create.
You: yes well, as i said i already have multiple tanks, i dont need any more right now. and i dont like acrylic tanks, i prefer glass
Charlene: Yes. How about filters and pumps?
Charlene: Is there anything else in your mind that you would like to order?
You: yes well, i have those. the fish i keep wouldn't live very long without them.
You: I would like to order a hamster
Charlene: Unfortunately, we do not sell hamster at petco.com. Please visit your local PETCO store to inquire about it.
Charlene: Would it be your first time to get a hamster?
Charlene: We have general care sheet of hamster that may help you in taking care of this pet.
You: oh that's alright, i've had 21 hamsters. A general care sheet would not be of much use to me.
Charlene: Is there anything else I can help you with today?
You: no i believe that will be all thanks
