The Return of the Rodents...

They're back...and this time, it's personal.

These rats are a thorn in my effing side, I tell ya!

We live in a neighborhood that is still being developed, and when they do a lot of building, we get alotta rats!

We had a pretty bad infestation a while back. We defended our territory with snap traps, glue traps, and finally an airsoft gun.

Jake is always so hell-bent on handling things himself. No exterminators. He can take care of it. Big, bad man, protecting his domicile! While effing rats run amuck in my house!!

We persevered over the first invasion, and the next time, the rodents came back bigger and badder! We had to pull out the heavy artillery, and fight this fucker with a BB gun!

We thought we'd showed them.

Until today...

Our dishwasher started leaking. Water spilling out, all over my kitchen floor. I mentioned it to Jake, and he said he'd get around to it. Just a week, or so, later, we noticed that the bottom of the cabinet, under the sink, was sagging in the middle.

**Nooooow he wants to check it out! Noooooow he listens to me, after the fucking cabinets are falling apart!!**

We slid the dishwasher out, to investigate. Rat shit, everywhere! Just as we were about to run the machine, to watch for the leak, we saw a jagged, broken peice of plastic, only partly covering a plastic tube. The source of our leak.

Look...



We can only assume that the rats ate through the FREAKIN' plastic, since it is not melted, or cracked, but, instead, JUST GONE! I guess the freezing temps have had them searching for a water source, and moreso, retribution!

Those little fuckers launched a stealth, undercover operation, to pay us back.

THEY ATE MY FUCKING DISHWASHER!

Oh...it's on now! Those mofo's are dead! DEAD!

The exterminator is coming next week!

**Noooooooow he wants to call an exterminator. I begged, pleaded, and tempted him with sexual favors, to call the exterminator, several months ago. Before they ate our appliances. I BEGGED HIM! He refused! Nooooooow he wants to call them!!**

That's sad and hilarious at the same time. If my wife tempted me with sexual favors in order to do something...consider it DONE!

Kameron said...

Damn, sexual favors didn't even work?? My hubby would call every exterminator in the city to get some right now. I'm, um, still healing damn it!

Lolidots said...

Damn! They are seriously out to get you! Hopefully one will make it back to the source before it dies and let the others know that your house shouldn't be f-ed with! We lived on a goat ranch for a couple of months when Snappy was a baby and the rodent problem was unreal. Disgusting and infuriating. I feel your pain, sista!

I'm Erin. said...

oh.
oh my.

I think you need a new arsenal of sexual favors. This can't be allowed.

Thanks for stopping by my site, and hope you get your little invasion taken care of.

OMGoodness!! That made my toes curl under thinking about rats in my kitchen. My neighborhood (not new development) has roof rats and we get the little buggers in my attic all the time. Guh-ROSS!!

oh man....i SOOOOOO glad that someone else has had this problem...we had a rat issue in our house in suburban boston when they were digging up the old train tracks that weren't being used to replace them with new ones for a new commuter rail - it displaced all of the rats and ran them into our subdivision! i was SO creeped out by the thought of rats in my house (i kept the house spotless) that after we trapped the second one under the stove, i didn't even give my husband a chance - i called the exterminator myself!

i just showed him this post and he laughed and said "at least ours didn't eat through appliances!"
