OK, so I arrive at a very modest, older (vintage 1950's) house after dark and the house is dimly lit. I remember I'd just gotten a new prescription for my glasses and my eyes were adjusting to them... Anyways, the lady invites me in and into her living room where we apparently will sign on a coffee table-I refer to this type of signing as a "back-breaker". Again, the room was dimly lit and a light in the corner of the room was just enough to read and see the documents by. We begin signing and I notice that I keep catching something in my peripheral vision as "moving".... Yet, when I turn and look nothing moves.
So we continue like this while she signs...every few moments I turn, because I keep getting that sensation of movement. When the borrower catches me doing this for a second time I blurt out "New glasses....they're playing with my sight"....."Oh," she says, "let me turn on some more light". She turns on another, far brighter light across the room and suddenly, it becomes apparent what all the movement was. The dark colored carpeting which was, in reality a light colored carpeting that was very dirty and dingy was strewn with cockroaches larger than a mans big toe and they were slowly crawling all around the room. If I were a woman I'd have screamed-and as a man, believe me, I was screaming 'on the inside'. Instead of actually screaming, I rushed the rest of the signing for the woman-who seemed oblivious to the motion. Then, I went home to grab a shower and burn my clothing.

Too Funny! I had a signing at a rural location for an elderly man. It was very hot when I arrived and was expecting to be asked inside for the signing, but no! He asked if we could stay on the porch in the "beaming sun", since he has alot of dogs inside. OK! So, we begin to sign and a red wasp starts to swarm. I told him that I was a little concerned about it, but he said "aww, don't worry, it won't hurt you!" That was one of my most miserable and funny jobs.

While in the Navy, I was at a base in southern Georgia. They sprayed twice a month for roaches and other bugs back then. You learned to tap your shoes in the morning before putting them on. A day or two before being sprayed again, they would scamper off quickly to somewhere else.

A lot of folks didn't like to walk at night in the spring because the sidewalks became "crunchy." During the day, they didn't need to post "do not walk on the grass" signs because so many areas were infested with chiggers that would drive you nuts with itching. Not so fond memories...

Goodness gracious....I'm with Carmen, had I seen even one cockroach, I pack my stuff and leave. We'd have to finish the signing outside or meet at the nearest McDonalds or Starbucks. Usually, one roach means there are many more.

When I lived in Taiwan in 1990, we had cockroaches all over the place. However, I can't stand cockroaches anymore than anyone else can. So, I had a dedicated book used for killing them. I would throw the book at the wall if a roach was on the wall. Horrifying. I kept the number down to zero most of the time unless one snuck in and then I would immediately take care of it.

OMG!!!! That story gave me the chills!

You are a better person than me. I HATE cockroaches. I would have packed up and left. No question about it.

Now I have to go take a shower...
