Splish splash I was takin' a bath

OK...well I wasn't taking a bath, but my car mats sure were (not that my vehicle is clean, but still). We have a 75 gallon fish tank at work - and we HAD these wonderful 3 fat, and I mean fat goldfish in it.

This sweet little older gentlman came into work while I was there one day - was looking at our tank and said he had an outdoor small pond and had to get rid of his goldfish - he was so sweet - I told him if he really wanted to he could bring them up and we'd take them - SO he did. I didn't realize what I was taking on - these mammer jammers weren't your typical gold fish.......they were swoll - they have these huge bellys on them. Well they fit in just perfectly - one of our fish died (Bubba bug guys) - so having these guys would be fine (so I thought).

Well.....our tank got grummier and nastier - we knew it was these guys because we haven't had a problem before. Among the 3 of us in our office we decided the goldies needed to go - I said I would take them - since I had taken the outdoor pond from the little old guy (I had too, I felt sorry for him).

SO - I caught the pot belly golden one's (what a sight that was - me running from one in of the tank to the other trying to get them). I did - and put them in the busket pictured below. The trip home was fine. UNTIL I turned into my is some-what hilly. OH and I was on the phone with my sissy Abbi (a tid bit of taylor) while this was going down. ALL of the sudden water is sloshing everywhere it wouldn't stop....I started freaking out - talking to the water and fish like they could do anything!! I even stopped the help. I had water all over the place. Abbi of course was laughing at me - I was saying some "choice" words to my new homebound friends. SIGH...see below:
