Our office has been invaded by ants. I don’t think this is a revelation for anyone in this area. I am not an expert on ants or how to eliminate them; however I am certain that the following scenario was not going to help.
Behold an interesting exchange between my office mate and I:
Office Mate (OM): Well just so everyone knows, I just used one of the anti-AIDS virus wipes and got rid of the ants in the kitchen.
Wicked: Mmmm hmmm. Good for you.
After a few minutes, OM visits the kitchen to survey her accomplishment.
OM: I don’t understand.
Wicked: What don’t you understand?
OM: The ants, they’re back!
Wicked: What made you think they were gone?
OM: Well the anti-AIDS virus wipes, of course!!
Wicked: Seriously, all you accomplished was to eliminate the ants from contracting and spreading the virus, possibly Hepatitis and lets throw in any other STD for good measure. As for obliterating the colony, the wipe can’t do that.
Can you believe I get paid for this kind of entertainment??
