Dear Mart of Wal,
I visit your establishment every Monday and sometimes even twice a week. Of course, I have my nearly four year old daughter with me while I do my shopping.
There are two things she loves about your store: getting a sticker and seeing the fish tanks.
The sticker is fine, unless she comes home and sticks it to the wall or some other piece of furniture. Then, I get a little irritated. But, really, that's nothing compared to the horror of the fish tanks.
I try, I really, really try to overlook the fact that in almost every tank, there is at least one "floater". How hard is it to have an employee scoop it out? Have someone swing by every half an hour or so and remove the casualties?
Because, really, I don't want to see that and I don't want my daughter to see it and start asking questions.
When the casualties are not scooped out in a timely manner, the other tank mates tend to snack on the floater. And, that is even grosser than seeing one belly up in the tank.
I do realize that most fish do not have a very long lifespan, but seriously, when there is a half eaten carcass floating in the tank and I can CLEARLY see it (not that I WANT to), one might think that an employee would also notice the carnage and get the little green net to dispose of the horror show.
Children love to gaze at those fish. Most of them will need therapy in years to come from witnessing the cannibalism that takes place at your establishment! Think of the children!
But, I have to thank you for at least helping ME lose a few pounds. I'm definitely put off eating after seeing those tanks.
Shoot, if you give me a baggie and a net, I'll clean the dead ones out for free on Mondays! Maybe you could throw in a cup of chicken nuggets for my kid for my trouble. Lord knows I don't want any food.
Along with the fish tanks, you should also make the employees check the restrooms more often. Or at least install automatic air fresheners. My child has to pee everytime we leave the house and those bathrooms smell like the "Brown Light Special" if ya know what I mean....
You're a kabillion dollar company! Clean up your act or I'll have to force my family to eat Wendy's fast food for the rest of our lives!
