I was always the kid that got picked on at school. Just because I was small for my size, had red hair and zits. Also, you'd think that I would be the nerd who knew everything. But I was even dumb as a rock.
I got a job after school at a pet store and the guys were always coming over and looking until some customers came in. Then they'd point at me working with the animals and say things like, "Is he toilet trained? How big will he get?"
