: As much as I don't like the big pet store chains(any of them).I think that it was your own fault for helping the employee. You could have asked for someone else to get the rodent. You can always buy frozen. The fact that you got bit comes w/ the teritory for owning any animal. Did you go to the hospital or even get an infection? Do you even have a scar that is at all noticeable? Quit your crying and forget about it don't support the big chains support people who are in the hobby because they like it and are not in it for the money. There are plenty of hobbyist who sell frozen rodents and will ship them right to your front door.
