I'd Rather Have Mice Than Nasty Cockroaches...

I remember the first time I saw a cockroach in person lol...

I was living in Brooklyn, attending school. My dorm room was in an old apartment building. One day I just saw the damn thing on my roommate's bedside rug. I thought, "Holy crap... that thing is huge..."

I didn't know what to do, so I did the first thing that came to mind; grab my coffee mug and trap it. It scurried a few feet away but I managed to get it. Now what...



My roommate comes in, and I tell her what happened. She's just as grossed out and freaked out as I am. We call our friend over to come get rid of it for us. So she came in, and we pointed to the coffee mug on the floor. Without hesitation, she lifts the mug and steps on the cockroach. In flip-flops. Ughhh.

She wiped it up with a papertowel and flushed it down the toilet. After she left, my roommate and I cleaned and disinfected the apartment like a couple of crazy germophobes. Ughh.
