Thank you to Mr. Neighbor Man
Oh, Thank you! Thank you Mr. Neighbor man! Just want to say, how happy I was to see you today!
An unidentified neighbor that lives somewhere around the corner happened to be walking by my home today when I found a disgusting creature in my garage. Yes, ANOTHER (BIG) scorpion! Why oh why are they popping up in and around my home now after all these years? We've lived here about 8 years and never saw one until last year and now we have seen close to 10 in the last year and a half. It's awful to think about. I hyperventilate when I see them. I HATE squishing. I saw it run under my van as I opened my garage door, I must of freaked it out because it was running in circles with it's tail pointed up. I got the heeby geeby's and put Alexa in her car seat, pulled out my van hoping it was maybe hiding behind a wheel. I then got off my van while in the drive way and ran to my neighbors house as I saw his truck was there but heard the vacuum going so no response to my knocks at the door, plus I was a little bit embarrassed to keep insisting. So I went back to my house, grabbed a shovel, and found the little stinker hiding in a crack, and that is when I saw a neighbor man and lady walking towards me and asked him for the tiny favor of killing the scorpion for me. He did and told me I had nothing to be ashamed of, thank goodness. I then laid a brick on the scorpion to make sure it wouldn't escape until my hubby could get home and dispose of it. Have not been in my garage since.
