me 2, but all the stupid Steins Garden and Gifts around here seem to think I am looney tunes when I ask for it. I always wondered if I was maybe saying it wrong, but it sure isn't that hard of a word to pronounce.

I say coy-er.

Most people that work at stores will not know what you are talking about if you ask for coir. At a pet store, you have to ask for reptile bedding, not coir....although the same thing.

At my pet store we know what it is.

And we know what it's for (when someone asks for "coir" and not bed-a-beast/eco-earth.

"So...is it your first time? We have prints in the back..."

lol, that's funny. I think I'd be pretty shocked if someone made a comment about mushrooms.

I just remember the first time I got the stuff. I asked the girl at the pet store where they keep their coir, and she looked at me as if I had just asked her to do anal.

after searching the reptile isle she said "oh, you mean reptile bedding"......hehe yes yes for my pet cubensis....very rare breed of reptile.

Since you already shocked/confused her, your next question should have been, "Where do I sign up for the anal?"
