You won't get your money back, you had it coming

The world’s coming to an end, starting this Saturday - or "tomorrow" for short. Or so says some random nutter in the US of whom I read on the BBC News site. Don’t believe any of it personally, of course, but other people do, and one guy has found a way to help the pets of those people who do:

An atheist and entrepreneur from North Hampshire, Bart Centre, is enjoying a boost in business for Eternal Earth-bound Pets, which he set up to look after the pets of those who believe they will be raptured.
He has more than 250 clients who are paying up to $135 (£83) to have their pets picked up and cared for after the rapture.
They would be disappointed twice, he told the Wall Street Journal. "Once because they weren't raptured and again because I don't do refunds."

Have to hand it to him. Great business idea and he has put thought into caring for the animals, which is always a plus in my book. The best part is that he doesn’t plan on giving any money back, which made me giggle. And no, I don’t think he’s exploiting anyone. Clever bugger.
