Good contest idea Eric
You know your addicted to hermit crabs when:
1.) You walk through stores looking at things and every other thing you pick up you think, " Wow, this would make a good _____ for the crabs!" or, "Hmmm, could I use this for the hermits??"
2.) You sit in front of the tank for hours watching your crabs eat climb and shell-shop.
3.) You have to prepare the crab food one handed while keeping the other hand on your nose.
4.) You stand in Wal-mart for an hour trying to decide between two baskets of shells and finally when who ever is with you is close to leaving you, you decide to get them both.
and number five:
Every time you walk into a pet shop with hermit crabs the employee's run the other way so they don't have to stand with you for an hour while you try to decide which crabs to buy, or they are so used to you they just tell you to go ahead.
You know you're addicted to hermit crabs when:
1. When you friends at work start asking "how many now" and they get a kick out of telling your customers "jenn's got crabs" (while I'm bartending)
2.When you have a 35"x45" hermit photo collage hanging on your wall.
3.When you spend more money and time on shell shopping than you do on your own clothes.
4. When you drive 3 towns out of your way to go to a different Petco, because you are too embarrassed to go to the closer one, because you are the crab lady
5.You really know you are addicted to hermit crabs when you check back with HCRU 5 or 6 times a day to see what is going on with everyones crabs. You actually don't even log off, U just stayed logged in all the time.
