Turnip For The Books

Dammit. The painting that was sitting on the fence between turniphood and triumph is... a turnip. A *large* turnip. Dammit. I'm unsure of how salvageable it is. The good thing is, I can't make it much worse, whatever I do.

*Grumpy sigh*

I went to Animates yesterday to return a chew toy I got for Sock. It's a Nylabone toy that is designed for "powerful chewers" - she broke it the first day she had it! I think it's a bit of a design flaw - she essentially detached one end of the 'bone' from the rest, which is a choking hazard in my opinion - and certainly a $17 chew toy should withstand chewing for longer than a week or two!

When I tried to return it, the girl behind the counter said "Oh, yeah, my dog's one of these is in three pieces, that's just what happens." I gave her a bit of a hard time over it - and pointed out that I'm a loyal customer and that Animates could just return the broken toy to Nylabone and get a refund, so *gimme a new toy!* Eventually she did, but I'm still kinda peeved that she tried to tell me that they're supposed to fall to pieces!

Nothing wrong with a turnip! Why do turnips get such bad press? What's with picking on turnips?

Perhaps I need to leave the thesis alone, just back away quietly...
