laptop, geek, MacBook, bursting, breakout

I wish I'd recorded that phone call...

...from the nice market research girl. When she got onto the subject of pets, it became swiftly apparent to both of us that the questions really weren't designed for tropical fish. "Have you had your pet microchipped?" "Where does your pet normally sleep?" "What's the earliest you'd consider applying for a pet passport?"1 "What training issues have you had?"

For the "what sex is your pet?" question, there wasn't an option for "Erm. I think there must be a mixture, because little fish have appeared in the past, but I couldn't tell you which was which...", either.

1Might explain all those little plastic bags they've been handing out at airports, I guess...
