Crossing Mason Dixon


September 9, 2010 was my first day of my first job out of college: Companion Animal Manager at West York Petco in York, PA.

From that job I learned:
1) Algae never goes away
2) Caiques are awesome
3) Don’t get a job in retail, at least not for long
4) People love pets
5) Chinchillas love gatorade
6) Hamsters bite, hard
7) Follow up with people, even on the little stuff and especially on the little stuff
8) Positivity beats negativity any day of the week
9) Planograms are annoying
10) Animals are pretty amazing, people are too
