Venting here for a little. I am a newer chameleon owner, so I don't know if this is normal. I am not a child here, I am an adult, a military veteran, who recently graduated from cosmetology school. Today I stopped at the school I graduated from a month ago, to get my hair done and see some friends. I know a few of the people there know I got a chameleon, because I have plastered facebook with pictures and posts of him. I also know that not everyone is into reptile, I myself am not a fan of snakes, or most children. Most of the people I saw today were asking about him, and stuff. One person, who I really thought was a friend, was all like "eeewww, what the hell is that!" (when I was showing someone else a picture of him today.) And she was plane rude to me because I now own a lizard and then basically ignored me because of this. Really? who acts like that? I have watched like 50 videos of her 4 year old singing songs or dancing, I don't really like children but I was never rude to her just because she has one. And she is a facebook friend who is ALWAYS on FB so I know she already knew I had the lizard. I'm not mad so much as hurt by such childish behavior from another adult, who I thought was my friend. It isn't like I took him with me into the salon. So I guess you don't really know your friends till you get a chameleon.
