As I have mentioned in my other blog post today (http://listuniverse.wordpress.com/) , we have started receiving some unwanted guests in our offices: mice.
My boss and fellow partner in this business has been floating the idea of a cat. Which I thought he was joking, after all, how can we keep a cat in the office? Who is going to clean the cat litter? Who is taking it home on weekends?
And I guess having caught another one in a trap really got him going on his idea. So I guess he decided to take action.
He walked into my office and said: “I was looking for a cat to come in every day but I couldn’t find one.”
I am like, humm, ok, who is going to take care of this cat if you find it anyway?
Ignoring my question, he continues:
“I found a python!’
What? You want to bring a snake to get rid of the mice? If that is the case than you will be successful in getting rid of me, or I will be forever working from home.
And I kept going pointing it out how I would not share space with a snake in a million years.
In seeing the state of hysterics I was in, he said:
“ok, ok, relax. I am not doing anything yet. I am checking with you first. I would never bring one in without checking with you first. Don’t worry I am not getting one.”
Now, please forgive me if you are a snake lover, but fear of snakes is at the top of my lists of fears!
So in this case, if I have to choose between a snake or mice, please send in the mice!!!
Which one would you choose?
