Receptionist: Hello, thank you for calling. How can I help you?
Person: I have a 4 year old cat and I need all 4 paws declawed. How much is that?
Receptionist: Well, we only do the front two paws here. And that runs about $250.
Person: Are you @$$!!%%$# kidding me??????!!!
Receptionist: …I’m sorry?
Person: That is just @#$!!# ridiculous.
Receptionist: I’m sorry.
Person: Isn’t there some back alley declaw vet you know of? Someone who does it for like, 50 bucks?
Receptionist: I can’t say that there is.
Meet me behind the dumpster at 7. You bring the helpless victim and $40, I’ve got the ether and the rusty pliers.
Seriously, though- I can’t imagine going into a place of business, deciding I dislike their prices, and demanding they tell me where I can get the same product elsewhere for less. Don’t get me wrong- I’ll help people find low cost spay and neuter clinics when they need assistance, and I do what I can to try and help people afford the care their pet needs day in and day out. But something about this conversation….*shudder*
