There is a local pet supply store (Pet Barn) that I often go to which carries small pets as well as supplies. I bought a Guinea pig from there and a couple of weeks after getting her I decided to go purchase another.

I picked out a very small pig (she was probably a month old at the time) and asked one of the employees to help me. He couldn't catch the pig (it seemed like he was afraid) so I grabbed her and held her while he went to go get a box. He came back and I placed her in the box and he grabbed the box. He immediately dropped the box and the pig squealed loudly, making all the other customers stare. While he stands gawking at the box, I quickly snatched the box up and checked on the pig to make sure she was okay. She seemed fine, and he took the box from me again (carefully this time)and then proceeded to try to STAPLE the box shut. I told him to please not do that, and he took the box up to the counter.

While I'm paying for the pig, he tells one of his coworkers how he dropped the pig. She proceeds to LAUGH and then tells him a story about how she dropped some other animals, the whole time laughing and joking about how she hurt them (seriously, I couldn't believe her). I almost decided to leave and not purchase anything because of how cruel she was being, but I didn't want to leave the pig behind.

It's been a few months since I purchased said piggy (named Phoebe). She is still very scared and jumps at anything, but I don't know if that's just her nature or because of her experience. I've gone back to that store a couple of times since then, but I haven't seen the woman who was joking about hurting animals. The guy who dropped Phoebe, though, still works there.
