OK, I enjoy the plight someone else as much as the next guy, but I can also see the humor in my own pains. Therefore, I figured that I would share this struggle with you, so that you might get a little joy from my pain. Here's the story: A couple of months ago, I detected a couple of little black "surprises" on the floor in one of my back bedrooms. I also noticed a small hole chewed in the bottom of the dog food bag which is also in this room. No big deal, I've got a mouse. No problem, I thought. I went to Home Depot and got some traps (4 to be exact) and strategically set them in the room. For about 2 weeks, I would come home from travelling to find 1, 2, or sometimes 3 of the traps tripped without the first sign of the little bugger. So I go back to Home Depot and Pick up some larger rat traps and some glue boards - I'm starting to get ****ed. Set the traps and glue boards and again, off I go - travelling for work. I come home to find the traps tripped and empty - PI$$!!! Next I check the glue boards. Now keep in mind, I placed the boards on a piece of cardboard (to keep the glue off of any carpet) in the middle of the room with some dogfood "bait" between them. Well, the bait worked. One of the glue boards was flipped upside down - OF COURSE IT WAS ON THE CARPET - about 3 feet from its original position. I got the board up and it was absolutely covered in hair. I mean whole big chunks of it. I didn't get the rat, but I took solice in the fact that I now knew that there was one sore, bald rat that was probably running for the hills - or at least the neighbors house.
