Fashions come and go, but roaches are forever

The Mini-Storage place called to say that they’d discovered roaches and wanted me to stop by and drop off my key. They were going to open all the units for spraying AND to see if they could locate the source of the infestation.

They called later to say they sent my keys back via certified mail.

The lady on the phone was full of the banter.

She said they located the roached-out unit and she “told Terry if that girl ever walks in here, I’m going to punch her in the face”. In the words of Kip Dynamite, she’s pretty TO’ed.

She also said they didn’t see any roaches in my unit, and the originator unit was “on the other side”. I hope that she meant “of the facility” and not “of your unit”.

  1. Pro tip from the chronically bug-phobic: Cucumber peels. Just go in your unit and scatter a butt-load of cucumber peels. Word is that *shudder* roaches detest those and won’t even return the RSVP, much less come to the party.
    Plus then you get to eat cucumbers, which is always a good thing.

  2. Wouldn’t that leave me with a storage unit full of rotted cucumber peels?
