The things people do for you on Craigslist.
So one day I decided to ask my mom what I could do to relieve her stress as she currently has 2 jobs and she told me that she wanted a big fish tank. I told her that I would do my best(since I don't have a job and can't get money) and that I would have it soon. Mother's Day was coming so I decided to put an ad for an aquarium larger than 55g. Well, Mother's Day came and I didn't have anything for her, but I kept trying as her birthday was next week. The day before my moms birthday, a person replied saying that they would give me there aquarium setup FREE. I was asked to do some community service with a friend and I didn't come home till about midnight. By then, the person had said that they had already gotten rid of it since I took too long, but I never knew that they where in a rush to get rid of it. Disappointed, I went to sleep in a bad mood because I wouldn't have anything for my Mom. The next morning, another person replied and said that they would give me their 55g aquarium setup with a 9in white oscar cichilid and an angelfish that was about 4-6in. Excited, I told my sister to take me to them before my mom got home from work(11:00pm) and I hurried to set it up. When my mom arrived, I had covered the aquarium and had put a giant present bow on it. She opened it and started crying with tears of joy because of how beautiful it was. The next day I saw her eating breakfast and I knew that the fish had put her in a better mood because she was smiling the entire time she was eating. I thanked the guy and the reason they couldn't have it anymore was because the wife of the couple wanted a cat and the guy said that it was either the fish or the cat.
