Who Invited These Cockroaches?

One day, long, long ago, there were two young couples invited to a co-worker's home for supper.

When the couples were almost there, the guys warned the girls that they have a cockroach problem in this complex, but it should be okay.

These couples arrived to find a happy young family, awaiting their guests and cooking up some steak and baked potatos.

These young girls very gently sat on the low, sunken couch, and went to the bathroom in pairs, carefully watching for these creepy crawlers.

There were cockroaches crawling up the walls.

There were dead cockroaches in the corners.

There were a bunch of dead ones around the back of the toilet and in the bathtub.

Then they were called into the kitchen for supper.

The hosts were at the counter stacking steaks on serving plates and pulling foil off of potatos.

The young girls weren't sure if their hosts were oblivious to these creatures, embarrassed by them maybe? Was the wife horrified that her husband would invite company over when they had a bug problem?

But the girls were disgusted to find one walking across the counter right by where they were preparing the food. Another walking up the wall.

And they sat at the table and picked at their meals. (The girls anyway, the guys dug right in!!!)

Soon after, those young couples got the heck out of there! They did well, those girls. Don't you think?

Oh, and they stopped at McDonald's on their way home!

**I'll have you know that there was severe nausea, back scratching, twitching and foot lifting during the search and upload of the above picture!!! Barf!!  But I knew you'd appreciate it.  You're welcome.**

So they went from one cockroach-infested place to another? My daughters worked at McDonald's, they always had cockroaches.

OMG! I would NEVER eat, much less LIVE in a house with all those roaches. I am scared to death and grossed out by them....UGGH!

Hahaha. I laugh to keep from crying! Buddy lived in a cockroach infested apartment. It was so bad that when he moved, he left a lot of his stuff still packed in the boxes in his storage room, rather than taking the little crawlers with him. They are the scourge of the earth!!!

We once lived in a house (a few months only!!!) where there were so many cockroaches that we had to put towels at the bottom of our bedroom door, so we could keep them out at night. This was after my husband woke up once in the middle of the night, only to feel one nibbling on his toes!!!!! No kidding!
I was soooooo grossed out in that house, it remains in my nightmares.
