    A Very Disgusting And Disturbing Story

    At the age of 18 I could finally afford to get braces and all the years of being insecure about my smile were about to be over. No pain or humiliation was going to stop me from getting them. However, I experience one of the most disgusting incidents in my life. In fact before I...

    Ugh my sister has oodles of them in her house.

    Nasty. I can't stand them. One of the many reasons I don't stop by and visit... If I found a roach in my house I would probably burn my house down. Or break half my possessions trying to kill it lol...

    I Hate All Bugs But Roaches Are The Worst.

    You know you're from New Orleans when.

    ..you know roaches fly and it doesn't freak you out. Ugh... There is something Verboten about hearing the scratch scratch in the vents and realize there is a sucker trapped in there, it's the weekend and the rental company doesn't respond. Time to get the Bengal!!

    All Living Creatures Have Worth

    Its Alive.

    When I lived in Floridia they called them palmetto bugs. They were different from the ones in NY. You only saw one at a time but they were enormous and fast!!! I swear you could hear there little feet as they ran across the tile floor. Nasty!

    Yuck

    Roaches are disgusting, dirty and disease ridden...and very fast and sneaky.  I'd rather have a mouse problem than a roach problem in my apartment.

    I Hate Me A Damn Roach

    Roaches

    Hey, you guys.  Roaches aren't bad.  A little tobasco, some olive oil.  Sautee over a low flame for ten minutes.  Serve with guacamole.  Not bad.

    Gross!

    I once moved into a house that no one was aware had roaches. It took a lot of visits from the exterminator, but we were lucky and were able to eradicate them. Those effing things are gross!
