Rats!

I didn't believe my coworkers when they said we had one. Then they said it was huge. It? A rat. Yes, we have a rat on our floor. How do I know this to be true? Because this morning, I had a run in with said rat.

I came into work at 5:45am this morning, put my stuff on top of my desk, got out my laptop, and then proceeded to put my bag under my desk...then I heard something behind me. I turned, nobody there. Then I heard something huge hit my desk. Then it hit the wall. Another wall. Then a "scurring" noise. I never saw the rat. But I heard it and it sounded huge. And, I was all alone...so it wasn't a coworker pulling a joke on me. Eek! So, needless to say, I've been sitting indian style at my desk all day - no legs dangling from my chair here.

Other than that, I got the pleasure of watching 3 joggers doing hill repeats in front of our building. It's the perfect spot for it, but I never thought I'd see that while sitting at my desk.

Nothing new to report on. Skipped my run yesterday due to a breif rain shower and due to the fact that I just felt lazy. Hubs had to work late - he got home after I went to bed... So, I took advantage and did some housework, took a bubble bath, and read. Btw, I'm currently reading The Diary of Anne Frank: The Definitive Edition. Love it.

Bear went to the vet on Monday for his 2nd round of heartworm treatments. We pick him up this afternoon. I called yesterday to check on him and they said he's doing fine. I miss the poor guy. I never thought I'd say that - I'm not an inside pet person, at all. And I still stand by my word that come Sept 29th, Bear will become an outside dog once again. :)

Glad to hear Bear is all right.

I would totally be sitting Indian style too. Rats are just gross. While they make awesome lab study partners they make awful office mates. ;)

EW! Rats are so disgusting! Jon and I saw a rat swimming down a little canal not to long ago, I almost lost my lunch!

Ew, ew, ew! Rodents don't even bother me that much (unlike frogs) but being alone in an office early with a big ol' rat is gross!

Wow - I thought my day was rough! I would not care for any kind of encounter with a rat!!! Yuck!

Brandi said...

There is NO way I would still be there! Mice and rats are my worst fear! I mean I am TERRIFIED of them! Ugh!!!

Glad to hear Bear is doing good so far with his treatments.

EWWWWWWW!!! I would be sitting Indian style on my chair too!! Rats are so gross. My husband used to have rats in their DENTAL clinic in Hawaii...I was so thankful to not have to go there for my dental needs. Ha ha! Glad to hear that Bear is doing well!

i think that having a rat should entitle you to a sick day while the boss gets rid of it. i don't even feel bad for those things! i don't even want humane traps for them. just kill 'em. Hope it leaves you alone!
