The exotic reptile store that I helped out at was messy, but always made sure the tanks and cages were in pristine order. They didn’t care if the birds knocked seed onto the floor or the lizards knocked substrate thru their cages, as long as the animals and the animals’ set ups were in order they were too busy to upkeep the floors/etc during the days. They had a back heated/humidified snake room and a room behind that was noted “employees only”, but we escorted customers back there all the time so they could have a say in what sized rat they wanted or if they personally wanted to pick out their frozen rats out of the bag (I know there are others out there who are very picky about the “perfect” rat/mouse size that they need- I am). The bag room was a stock room, and it was messy, but again, their #1 concern was the animals, not the dust in the corner of the floor. If they stopped every 5 seconds to pick up something an animal knocked out of their tank/cage, then they would have had more unsupervised/uninformed/unattended customers. I think they had their priorities straight. That was a bit of a ramble- sorry.
I just found homes for my 4 snake ladies: ball python, colombian boa, hogg isle boa, and a burmese. *sniff* How I miss them so...
How do I set my laser printer to 'stun'?
